Matt Morris Report: Glasnow, Supak and Heredia pitch well

The West Virginia Power were off and the GCL Pirates were rained out.

-- Adrian Sampson got roughed up for the second time in three starts as Indianapolis lost to Gwinnett, 8-5.  Sampson did manage to get through five innings this time, as opposed to one and two-thirds two starts ago.  He allowed five runs, four earned, on six hits and three walks, while striking out four.  Yhonathan Barrios had a rough outing in relief, allowing two inherited runners to score and giving up a run of his own.  He allowed three hits and two walks in an inning and a third.  Gorkys Hernandez went 2-4 with a double, his fifth HR and three RBIs.  Jaff Decker was 2-3, Willy Garcia 2-4 with a double and Steve Lombardozzi 2-5.

-- Altoona squeaked by Erie, 3-2.  Adam Frazier stayed hot, going 2-4 with a triple.  Gift Ngoepe was 2-4 with a double and Max Moroff 2-3.  Josh Bell was 1-3.  Starter Matt Benedict allowed two runs over seven innings.

-- Luis Heredia finally had a good game as Bradenton beat Charlotte, 6-3.  Heredia gave up one run on three hits and a walk in five innings, the first time in eight starts he's managed to last that long.  He struck out one.  Harold Ramirez, Reese McGuire and Edwin Espinal all went 2-4.  Austin Meadows was 1-4 with a double.  Ramirez is back over .400, at .402.

-- The West Virginia Black Bears lost to Williamsport, 2-1, in 15 innings.  The Bears had tied the game in the 9th on two walks and a Logan Hill single, all with two out.  They had only five hits in the game, two by Albert Baur.  Casey Hughston went 0-5 and is off to an 0-14 start on his career.  Tyler Glasnow pitched four innings in his second rehab start.  He gave up an unearned run on one hit and one walk.  Glasnow fanned four and threw 32 of 45 pitches for strikes.  Nick Hibbing, drafted in the 16th round this year, made his pro debut with a scoreless inning.  He gave up two hits and struck out one.  Edgar Santana fanned five in three scoreless innings of relief.  He gave up two hits and no walks.  Jonathan Minier threw four scoreless innings, fanning six while giving up just a hit and two walks.

-- Bristol fell behind Greenville in the top of the 10th, but rallied for two runs and a 4-3 win in the bottom half.  Trae Arbet won the game with a walk-off sacrifice fly.  Trey Supak (pictured) opened the season in good form, allowing just two runs, one earned, on three hits and no walks in five innings.  He fanned seven.  The lack of walks is especially helpful because Supak struggled to throw strikes after signing a year ago.  Sandy Santos was 2-4 with a double and a triple, Carlos Munoz 2-4 and Julio De La Cruz 2-5.

-- The DSL Pirates hammered the Mets2, 12-4.  Mikell Granberry continued his hot hitting, going 3-4 with a triple.  Eddy Vizcaino and Raul Hernandez were each 2-4.  The team's more significant signings from last year continued to struggle, as Yondry Contreras went 0-3 an Christopher Perez 0-4.  Starter Domingo Robles gave up three runs, two earned, in five innings.  He allowed six hits and two walks, and struck out two.
