The DSL Pirates were off.
-- Indianapolis beat Gwinnett, 4-2. Wilfredo Boscan gave up two runs in five and two-thirds innings. He allowed five hits and three walks, and struck out three. John Holdzkom threw a scoreless inning, but he walked two and threw only 14 of 27 pitches for strikes. Blake Wood got a two-inning save. Alen Hanson went 2-4 and Elias Diaz 1-4.
-- Altoona edged New Hampshire, 7-6. Angel Sanchez went seven and two-thirds, giving up four runs on seven hits and a walk. He struck out five. His outing was better than his line, as the first three runs resulted from weak hits and the last one scored after he left the game. Jose Osuna went 2-4 with his second AA HR and three RBIs. Max Moroff was 2-2 with two walks, Adam Frazier 2-4 with a triple and Josh Bell 1-3 with a triple. Willy Garcia went 1-4, extending his hitting steak to 19 games.
-- Bradenton got a walk-off, 6-5 win over Fort Myers in eleven innings. One-out singles by Justin Maffei, Harold Ramirez and JaCoby Jones ended it. Tyler Eppler made his season debut, allowing four runs, three earned, in three innings. He gave up six hits, walked one and struck out one. Frank Duncan, who lost his rotation spot to Eppler, allowed one run in five innings, although the one run tied the game in the 9th. He gave up four hits, walked none and struck out three. Ramirez finished 3-6 and Barrett Barnes was 3-4 with a double. Chris Diaz also went 3-4 and Jones was 2-6. The Marauders hampered their own cause by getting thrown out stealing or picked off four times without successfully stealing a base.
-- West Virginia took the first game of its doubleheader with Augusta, 9-3. Jordan Luplow (pictured) and Connor Joe each went 3-4, Luplow with a double and his third HR, Joe with two doubles. Jerrick Suiter was 2-4 and Tito Polo 2-3. Cole Tucker went 1-3 with a walk. Austin Coley gave up three runs on six hits and a walk in six innings. He struck out four.
The Power dropped the second game, 2-1. Starter Yeudy Garcia gave up a run on four hits and two walks in three innings. He struck out three. I'm guessing he came out after three because the Pirates are going to limit his innings, which will very soon exceed his total from his pro debut last year. Jake Burnette gave up the other run in three innings. He only allowed one hit but he walked four. Luplow was 2-3. Tucker and Joe didn't play.
