When Austin Coley got hit, he got hit hard, and West Virginia lost at Hagerstown, 5-4.

Coley, the 2014 eighth-round pick, had four strikeouts and no walks in 5 2-3 innings, but allowed five runs on six hits, four of which were doubles. He gave up a lot of loud, hard contact, including a couple deep fly balls to left field which would have been home runs in a lot of other parks.

He's still off to a great start this season. In 37 2-3 innings, he has 37 strikeouts versus three walks. Sunday's loss dropped him to 5-2 on the season, if you care about that sort of thing.

Twenty-six-year-old catcher Kawika Emsley-Pai went 3-for-4. Chase Simpson tripled and walked and scored two runs.

Nick Neumann gave up five hits but no runs over the last 2 1-3 innings.

-- Indianapolis beat Norfolk, 8-5. The first six Indians batters reached base in the sixth inning, during which Indianapolis scored four times. Tony Sanchez went 3-for-4 with a double and Alen Hanson, Gustavo Nunez and Mel Rojas Jr. had two hits each. Hanson also doubled. Adrian Sampson allowed three runs on six hits in six innings, striking out three and walking two. A.J. Morris struggled in relief, allowing two runs on five hits in 1 2-3 innings.

-- Tyler Glasnow lasted 3 2-3 innings in his first start since spraining his ankle on May 6 and Altoona lost to Akron, 11-1. Glasnow struck out one and walked four, allowing six runs on five hits. Edward Salcedo and Gift Ngoepe each went 2-for-4 and Eric Wood and Dan Gamache each doubled.

-- Bradenton blanked Palm Beach, 2-0. Cody Dickson didn't walk a batter, striking out three and giving up seven hits in seven innings. Cesilio Pimentel struck out two in two innings of relief. Wyatt Mathisen went 2-for-3 with a walk and Barrett Barnes doubled. Austin Meadows and Erich Weiss each drew two walks, and Meadows scored both of the game's runs.
