Matt Morris Report: Charlie Morton has uneven rehab outing

-- Charlie Morton got hit around some, but Indianapolis still beat Norfolk, 3-2.  Morton gave up 11 hits in seven innings, but ten were singles and he walked none while fanning eight.  Five of the hits were ground balls, two of them bunts.  Morton was charged with two runs, one earned, and threw 68 of 96 pitches for strikes.  Alen Hanson went 2-2 with a walk, raising his average to .280.  Jose Tabata was 2-3.

-- Altoona beat Akron, 5-4, in literal walk-off fashion.  With the score 4-4 in the bottom of the 9th, a one-out single and two walks loaded the bases.  At that point, the Norfolk manager and catcher got ejected.  Max Moroff then struck out, but Josh Bell walked to end the game.  Starter Jason Creasy gave up three runs on seven hits and two walks in six innings.  He struck out four.  Dan Gamache and Keon Broxton each had two hits.  Moroff was 0-4 and Bell 1-4.  Stetson Allie hit his sixth HR and fourth in eight games.

-- Bradenton outlasted Brevard County, 7-6, in 12 innings.  The Marauders blew a three-run lead in the 8th, scored two in the top of the 12th and gave up one in the bottom half.  Starter Steven Brault gave up two runs, one earned, in five innings.  He allowed five hits, walked none and fanned five.  The Brevard County starter was former Pirate Wei-Chung Wang, who's struggling so far in high A.  He gave up five runs, four earned, in six and a third.  Austin Meadows (pictured) went 5-6 and drove in the go-ahead run.  Reese McGuire was 2-6.  Justin Maffei, Jose Osuna, Wyatt Mathisen and Chris Diaz also had two hits apiece.

-- West Virginia shut out Hagerstown, 3-0, in the first game of a doubleheader.  Yeudy Garcia, making his first start of the year, allowed just two hits and no walks over five innings.  He struck out three.  Montana DuRapau pitched the last two innings.  Cole Tucker was 2-4 with a double and Michael Suchy 2-3 with a triple.  Connor Joe went 0-4 in his second pro game.

Hagerstown returned the favor by the same score in the second game.  The Power had only three hits, two by Chase Simpson.  Starter Jose Regalado allowed the three runs over five innings.
