Matt Morris Report: Sampson making his case

New, 9 comments
Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

-- Adrian Sampson had a strong start for Indianapolis, allowing one run on six hits and no walks in seven innings.  He fanned eight and threw 63 of 94 pitches for strikes.  Indy nevertheless lost to Pawtucket, 2-1, in ten innings.  The Indians had only six hits, half of them by Jose Tabata.  They had a chance to go ahead when they loaded the bases in the top of the 10th with one out, but Alen Hanson popped up and Elias Diaz looked at a third strike.  A.J. Morris allowed two hits and two hit batsmen in the bottom half to give up the winning run.

-- Altoona survived 15 hits to drop Bowie, 6-4.  Gift Ngoepe was 2-3 with a triple, and Keon Broxton and Eric Wood each 2-4 with a double.  Stetson Allie added his 5th HR.  Max Moroff, Josh Bell and Willy Garcia were a combined 0-11, although Moroff drew two walks and Bell one.  Angel Sanchez allowed three runs, two earned, on nine hits in five and two-thirds innings.  He walked none and struck out five.  The perpetually injured Jeff Inman, now in his last year before free agency, made his season debut.  He allowed two of Sanchez' runners to score, but none of his own in an inning and a half.

-- Bradenton lost an eleven-inning game to Brevard County, 5-4.  Reese McGuire was 3-6, Wyatt Mathisen 3-5, and Austin Meadows and Jose Osuna each 2-5.  Matt Benedict allowed four runs over five innings.

-- West Virginia went with a Sunday lineup and stomped Charleston, 10-3.  Pablo Reyes was 3-6 with a double, and Elvis Escobar, Chase Simpson and Kawika Emsley-Pai each had two hits.  John Sever allowed one run on five hits in four and a third innings.  He walked two and struck out three.
