-- Nick Kingham left the game after five and a third innings with elbow pain, as Indianapolis beat Rochester, 3-1.  Kingham was in the midst of one of his best starts, throwing 47 of 60 pitches for strikes and allowing just one run on three hits and no walks.  He fanned three.  Deolis Guerra and Blake Wood finished, with Wood retiring the last four batters, two by strikeout.  He now has 17 strikeouts in 11 innings.  Jose Tabata was 3-4 with a double, raising his average to .328.  Deibinson Romero was 2-4, both doubles, and Elias Diaz was 2-3.  Alen Hanson was 0-3.

-- Tyler Glasnow left his start due to an ankle injury sustained when he slid into second.  He stayed in the game, but couldn't throw any warmup pitches between innings.  He had a rough first inning, allowing three runs, two earned, but settled down after that.  He ended up going three, allowing three hits, walking none and fanning four.  He threw 37 of 50 pitches for strikes.  Oh, yeah, Altoona lost its third straight to one of the worst teams in the minors, falling to Richmond, 4-1.  The Curve had only six hits.  Max Moroff was 2-3 with a double and a walk.  Josh Bell went 0-4 for the third straight game after getting his average up to .395.  Willy Garcia dropped a fly ball in the 1st, leading manage Tom Prince to remove him for a pinch hitter in the bottom half of the inning.

-- Bradenton got destroyed by Fort Myers, 9-0.  Starter Felipe Gonzalez gave up eight runs, seven earned, in two and a third innings.  The Marauders had only six hits, half of them by Erich Weiss.  Austin Meadows was 1-3 with a walk.  Reese McGuire didn't play, having caught 15 innings the night before.  Barrett Barnes also didn't play.

-- West Virginia got a strong start from Austin Coley and beat Kannapolis, 4-2.  Coley gave up one run, four hits and no walks over six innings, while striking out eight.  Pablo Reyes went 1-3 and Cole Tucker 0-3 with a walk.
