Matt Morris Report: Max Moroff stays hot

New, 32 comments

Bradenton was off.

-- Indianapolis edged Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 2-1.  The Indians had only three hits, one being Alen Hanson's first HR of the season.  Pedro Florimon and Hunter Morris had the other two hits.  Morris' current line of 152/186/167 isn't exactly making a case for him to move up the depth chart, or to be on it at all for that matter.  Wilfredo Boscan threw seven shutout innings, allowing five hits, walking one and fanning four.  A.J. Morris got into trouble in the 8th, but Blake Wood, who is making a case to move up the depth chart, got the last four outs for his 8th save.

-- For a while, Altoona's rotation was the whole show, but lately the hitters have been carrying more of the load.  The Curve got a mediocre start from Zack Dodson, but still beat Harrisburg, 7-4.  Dodson gave up four runs in four innings on seven hits and two walks.  He struck out two.  Max Moroff raised his average to .358 by going 2-5 with a double.  Josh Bell was 1-2 with a pair of sacrifice flies and Gift Ngoepe was 2-4.

-- West Virginia lost to Charleston, 6-5.  Colten Brewer made his first appearance since June 2013.  He gave up four runs in five innings on seven hits and a walk, while striking out four.  Dovydas Neverauskas covered the last four innings, so he may have pitched his way out of the rotation.  Michael Suchy was 2-3 with two walks and Kawika Emsley-Pai 2-4 with his first HR.  Cole Tucker broke a four-game hitless streak by going 1-4.
