Matt Morris Report: Brault, Sanchez have rough debuts

Both West Virginia teams were rained out.  Bradenton was off.

-- Angel Sanchez gave up longballs in each of the first three innings of his AAA debut as Indianapolis lost to Charlotte, 6-5, in twelve innings.  Sanchez lasted five innings, giving up four runs on five hits.  He walked two, struck out three and threw 60 of 93 pitches for strikes.  John Holdzkom pitched one inning and gave up a run on a single, steal, grounder and wild pitch.  Holdzkom struck out one.  Gorkys Hernandez tied the game with his fourth HR in the top of the 9th, but Radhames Liz walked in the winning run in the bottom of the 12th.  Brent Morel, Elias Diaz and John Bowker all went 2-5.  Morel hit his fourth HR and Diaz had a double.  Willy Garcia was 1-4 with a triple and a walk.

-- Altoona lost to Harrisburg, 4-0, in what was supposed to be the first game of a doubleheader.  Steven Brault (pictured) had a shaky AA debut, giving up ten hits and four runs in four and a third innings.  He walked one and struck out five.  Jacob Stallings was 2-3 with a double.  Max Moroff and Josh Bell were each 1-3.

Game two was rained out.

-- The DSL Pirates scored three in the top of the 9th to edge the Yankees2, 9-8.  Starter Yerry de los Santos gave up six runs in four innings.  Huascar Fuentes went 2-4 with a double and a triple, Mikell Granberry was 3-5, and Ramy Perez was 2-3.  Of the more prominent signees from last year, Gabriel Brito went 2-4 with a double and Yondry Contreras 1-5.
