Matt Morris Report: Morgantown takes two

New, comments

Bradenton and the DSL Pirates were off.

-- Indianapolis did its best imitation of the parent club, as Casey Sadler got torched for six 1st-inning runs in a 13-1 loss to Charlotte.  Sadler lasted four and a third innings and allowed ten runs on eleven hits, four of them HRs.  He walked three and struck out one.  Willy Garcia was 1-3.

-- Altoona beat Harrisburg, 7-3.  Starter Jason Creasy allowed three runs in five and two-thirds innings, exiting after he walked three straight hitters with two outs in the 6th.  He gave up five hits, walked four and struck out none.  The Curve got seven runs despite striking out 16 times in eight innings.  Edward Salcedo was 2-4 with three RBIs.  Eric Wood and Max Moroff each went 2-5, with Wood adding a triple.  Josh Bell was 1-4.

-- The WV Power gave up seven runs in the 7th inning to lose to Hickory, 10-5.  Starter Stephen Tarpley allowed three runs, two earned, in five and two-thirds innings.  He walked one and struck out six.  John Sever allowed one of Tarpley's runs to score in the 6th, then gave up all seven runs in the next inning.  Cole Tucker was 2-5 with a double, Jerrick Suiter 2-3 with a double, and Elvis Escobar 2-4 with a triple.  Connor Joe didn't play.

-- The WV Black Bears rallied for three runs in the bottom of the 7th to take the first game of a doubleheader with Mahoning Valley, 5-4.  The Bears had only five hits in the game, but three came in the final inning, including a walkoff infield single by Logan Hill.  Most of Morgantown's offense came courtesy of nine walks.  Mitchell Tolman (pictured) was 2-4 with a double.  Christian Kelley debuted behind the plate, but had no official at-bats.  He walked twice and sac bunted twice.  Starter Dario Agrazal gave up four runs, two earned, in five innings.  He allowed seven hits and a walk, and fanned six.  Eric Karch got the win with two perfect innings of relief.  Kevin Newman went 0-4 and committed an error that cost Agrazal two runs.  Kevin Kramer didn't play.

Morgantown completed the sweep with a 3-2 win in the second game.  Starter Hector Garcia threw three scoreless innings, giving up a hit and a walk, and striking out three.  Ty Moore was 2-2 with a walk, Hill had an RBI double, and Kevin Kramer was 1-3.  Newman didn't play.
