Matt Morris Report: Bell, Garcia go deep

-- Indianapolis beat Rochester, 5-3.  Elias Diaz (pictured) hit his second HR and Keon Broxton hit his second AAA HR.  Steve Lombardozzi added three hits and Brent Morel two.  Alen Hanson was 1-5.  Casey Sadler gave up the three runs in six innings, but two were unearned.  He allowed seven hits and three walks, and struck out four.

-- Willy Garcia and Josh Bell both went deep, Garcia's fifth and Bell's third, but Altoona still lost to Reading, 5-3.  Gift Ngoepe and Sebastian Valle (who's losing playing time to a very hot Jacob Stallings) each went 2-4 with a double.  Max Moroff was 1-4.  Jason Creasy didn't have one of his better starts, allowing four runs on eight hits and two walks in six innings.  He struck out two.  The loss was Creasy's first; his record now is 7-1.

-- Bradenton lost to Clearwater in eleven innings, 2-1.  Steven Brault threw five scoreless innings, allowing two hits and three walks.  He struck out two.  Jordan Steranka was 3-5 with a double.  Austin Meadows, Barrett Barnes and Harold Ramirez all went 1-5, with Meadows' hit a double.  Reese McGuire didn't play.

-- Stephen Tarpley suffered a 3rd-inning blowup, getting torched for seven runs as West Virginia lost to Savannah, 8-6.  All seven were unearned due to a passed ball on a strikeout of the leadoff hitter, but Tarpley had a very bad inning.  For the game, he gave up eight runs, one earned, in two and two-thirds innings.  He allowed eight hits and three walks, and fanned three.  John Sever followed with four and a third scoreless innings.  He gave up four hits, walked none and struck out three.  Jerrick Suiter went 3-4 with a triple, Jeff Roy 2-4 with a triple, and Chase Simpson hit his sixth HR.  Michael Suchy was 1-4 with his third HR and Connor Joe 1-4 with a double.  Cole Tucker remains out of the lineup.

-- The DSL Pirates beat the Braves, 11-8.  Ramy Perez was 3-4 with a double, Huascar Fuentes 2-3 with a triple, Melvin Jimenez 2-4 with a triple and Felix Vinicio 2-4 with a double.  Yondry Contreras was 1-5 with three strikeouts.  Brian Sousa gave up four runs, two earned, in four and a third innings.  He allowed four hits, walked two and fanned six.
