Matt Morris Report: Decker hits walkoff longball

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

-- Indianapolis rallied from a 2-0 deficit when Pedro Florimon hit a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the 9th.  Jaff Decker (pictured) then hit a walk off HR in the 10th, his third HR of the year, giving the Indians a 3-2 win over Durham.  Chris Volstad had his third straight strong start, giving up two runs on five hits and a walk in seven innings.  He struck out seven.  Radhames Liz followed with two scoreless innings.  He gave up two hits and struck out two.  Gustavo Nunez went 3-5.  Willy Garcia went 0-4 with two strikeouts in his AAA debut.  Alen Hanson was out due to a minor finger injury.  He's expected to miss a week or two.

-- Altoona lost to Akron, 5-4, in 14 innings.  Starter Jason Creasy managed to allow only three runs, two earned, despite giving up ten hits in five innings.  He walked two and struck out three.  Adam Frazier went 2-5 with a triple and Dan Gamache 2-6 with a double.  Max Moroff and, in his return to AA, Mel Rojas each went 2-7.  Josh Bell was 1-4.

-- Bradenton dropped a 2-1 game to Tampa.  The Marauders had only one run despite getting a dozen hits.  In the second inning, they had four hits and still managed not to score, thanks in part to Harold Ramirez getting picked off for the second game in a row.  Edwin Espinal went 4-4 with a double.  Barrett Barnes, Erich Weiss and Wyatt Mathisen each went 2-4, with Barnes producing the only run with his fourth HR.  Ramirez was 1-4, Reese McGuire 0-4 and JaCoby Jones 0-5.  Jayson Aquino pitched well, giving up two runs in seven innings on five hits and two walks.  He fanned five.

-- West Virginia blew a one-run, 9th inning lead on a hit batsman, two steals and a wild pitch.  The Power came back in the top of the 10th when Jerrick Suiter hit a two-out single to drive in Cole Tucker, who'd walked and stolen second.  They then hung on for a 5-4 win over Charleston.  Alex McRae went six, giving up three runs, two earned.  He allowed six hits, walked none and fanned six.  Jose Regalado followed with three hitless innings, but gave up the 9th inning run.  He walked one and struck out four.  Tucker finished 1-4 and Connor Joe 1-5.  Suiter with 2-4 with a double and Pablo Reyes 2-5 with a double.

-- The DSL Pirates edged the Cubs, 3-2.  Adonis Pichardo threw three scoreless innings, giving up a hit and three walks.  He struck out two.  Melvin Jimenez was 3-4 with a double and Felix Vinicio 2-3.
