-- Indianapolis stomped Norfolk, 9-1, in a game shortened to seven innings by rain.  Casey Sadler (pictured) got a complete game with just 79 pitches, allowing the one run on two hits.  He walked none and struck out six.  Deibinson Romero went 3-5 with a double.  Jose Tabata, Tony Sanchez and Gorkys Hernandez each went 2-4.  Sanchez hit his second HR and Hernandez had two doubles.  Alen Hanson was 0-4.

-- Altoona got seven shutout innings from Zack Dodson in a 4-2 win over Akron.  Dodson gave up four hits, walked none and fanned eight.  The hapless Josh Smith allowed the two runs.  Keon Broxton was 2-3 with a double and Max Moroff 2-4 with a double.  Josh Bell was 1-4.

-- Jayson Aquino, recently picked up from Toronto, threw seven shutout innings in his first outing for the Pirates.  He gave up just three hits and a walk, and struck out four.  Unfortunately, the bullpen coughed up five runs in the 8th and 9th innings as Bradenton lost to Palm Beach, 5-4.  Jose Osuna was 3-4 with two doubles, Reese McGuire 2-5 and Wyatt Mathisen 2-4.  Austin Meadows was 1-4 with a triple and Barrett "I'm not dead yet!" Barnes 1-3 with a double.  JaCoby Jones hit his fourth HR.

-- West Virginia lost to Hagerstown, 5-2.  Starter Alex McRae lasted only three batters into the 3rd inning.  Jake Burnette replaced him and threw four and two-thirds hitless innings.  He walked one and gave up an unearned run, and struck out eight.  Cole Tucker was 3-4, and Elvis Escobar and Tito Polo each had two hits.  Connor Joe was 1-4.
