Matt Morris Report: Nothing good to see here

-- Adrian Sampson got lit up for eight runs on a dozen hits in just an inning and two thirds against Gwinnett.  Indianapolis came back to make it 8-7 after four innings, but that's where the score stayed.  Collin Balester (pictured -- I really had to reach for an appropriate photo today) followed Sampson with four and a third scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and striking out four.  John Holdzkom threw a scoreless inning in his third game back from the disabled list.  He allowed two hits, struck out one, and threw 12 of 18 pitches for strikes.  Elias Diaz had a three-run HR, his third, and Gustavo Nunez and Gorkys Hernandez each went 2-4.  Alen Hanson had a triple in four ABs.

-- Altoona got thrashed by New Hampshire, 14-1.  Starter Chad Kuhl gave up three runs on four hits, with no walks and three strikeouts.  He left after a rain delay, having thrown four innings plus one batter.  Brett McKinney, newly promoted from Bradenton, got a rude welcome to AA.  He gave up eight runs in an inning and two-thirds.  Catcher Jacob Stallings had to get the last out.  Edward Salcedo went 2-4.  Josh Bell and Max Moroff got the day off.

-- Bradenton lost to Fort Myers, 4-3.  Luis Heredia again ran into pitch count problems, taking 85 pitches to get through four innings.  In half a dozen starts, Heredia has yet to last longer than four and a third.  Other than the pitch count, his results weren't bad:  two runs, one earned, on five hits and a walk, with five strikeouts.  The slumping Marauders managed only five hits.  Edwin Espinal was 2-4, Harold Ramirez 1-3 with a double, Austin Meadows 1-4 and Reese McGuire 0-3.

-- West Virginia lost to Augusta, 5-4.  Starter Colten Brewer gave up four runs on four hits and four walks in six innings.  He fanned six.  Jerrick Suiter was 2-3 and Tyler Filliben 2-4.  Cole Tucker returned to the lineup and went 2-5.  Connor Joe didn't play.

-- As usual, no report was available for the DSL Pirates.
