Matt Morris Report: Not a good day for the pitchers

Indianapolis was rained out.

-- Altoona lost to Akron, 9-2.  Zack Dodson gave up six runs on eight hits in six innings.  Jeff Inman gave up two runs in his one inning, the first time in 13 outings that he's been scored upon.  Max Moroff and Mel Rojas were 2-3, and Josh Bell and Dan Gamache were 2-4.  Rojas hit his first HR of the year.

-- Luis Heredia's struggles continued against Tampa.  He allowed seven runs on nine hits in four and two-thirds innings as Bradenton lost, 7-5.  Heredia walked one and struck out three.  Harold Ramirez (pictured) was 3-4 with a triple and is now hitting .392.  Edwin Espinal was 3-4 with a double.  Reese McGuire and Justin Maffei each went 3-5.  JaCoby Jones hit a three-run HR, his eighth.

-- West Virginia tried to rally from a 6-1 deficit against Charleston, mainly on the strength of nine walks, but fell a run short and lost 6-5.  Starter Colten Brewer gave up all six runs in four and two-thirds innings.  He allowed nine hits, walked two and struck out three.  Jordan Luplow was 2-5 and Cole Tucker 1-3.  Connor Joe didn't play.

-- The DSL Pirates gave up two runs in the bottom of the 9th to lose a walkoff to the Cubs, 13-12.  Pirates' pitchers walked a dozen and hit three more.  The tying run scored on a bases loaded hit batsman, followed by a walk to end it.  The Pirates are starting to get their more prominent signees into the lineup after some minor injuries.  Catcher Gabriel Brito, serving as the DH tonight, was 2-5 with a double and four RBIs.  Shortstop Chrisopher Perez was 0-4.  Centerfielder Yondry Contreras was 0-5 with three strikeouts.  Felix Vinicio went 3-5 with his first HR.  Jeremias Portorreal was 2-3 with a double and two walks.
