Matt Morris Report: Clayton Richard struggles

Altoona was off.

-- Indianapolis lost to Pawtucket, 7-4.  Clayton Richard had a rougher time than in his previous AAA start, giving up three runs on seven hits and four walks in five and two-thirds innings.  He struck out two and took 100 pitches to get through that many innings.  (On the plus side, he threw 100 pitches.)  Alen Hanson went 2-5 with a double and Tony Sanchez 2-3 with a double, triple and walk.  Elias Diaz was 1-3.

-- Bradenton got hammered by Fort Myers, 11-5.  The Marauders apparently were short a starter, although I'm not sure why.  Matt Benedict moved up to AAA to make a spot start two days ago, but Frank Duncan was available on normal rest.  Anyway, a series of relievers got pummeled.  Jin-De Jhang was 3-4 and Jose Osuna 2-5 with his third HR.  Austin Meadows was 0-5 and Reese McGuire 1-5.  JaCoby Jones didn't play, nor did Barrett Barnes.

-- John Sever (pictured) and two relievers combined on a two-hitter as West Virginia downed Hickory, 3-1.  Sever gave up an unearned run, two hits and two walks in five and a third innings.  He fanned five.  Montana DuRapau and Junior Lopez struck out four over a combined hitless three and two-thirds.  Cole Tucker and Pablo Reyes went 2-4, and Reyes hit his fifth HR.  Connor Joe was 0-4.
