Matt Morris Report: Seven shutout innings for Volstad

New, comments
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

-- Chris Volstad had his best game with the Pirates' organization as Indianapolis shut out Lehigh Valley, 4-0.  Volstad went seven innings, allowing just three hits and a walk, and fanning seven.  The Iron Pigs had just four hits for the game, three by Chase d'Arnaud.  Steve Lombardozzi went 3-5 with a double.  Alen Hanson was 1-5.  Tony Sanchez had a rare CS against d'Arnaud.

-- Josh Bell (pictured) hit his second HR of the season as Altoona beat Erie, 6-3.  Bell finished 2-5, as did Max Moroff, who also doubled.  Edward Salcedo was 2-4 with a double.  Willy Garcia was 1-4.  Zack Dodson allowed two runs, one earned, in six innings on four hits.  He walked none and fanned two.

-- Bradenton lost to Fort Myers, 4-3, in twelve innings.  Luis Heredia had a shaky start, allowing only one run but giving up nine hits in four and a third innings.  Heredia walked none and struck out one.  The Marauders' offense came on long balls, a two-run shot by JaCoby Jones and a solo HR by Erich Weiss.  The HRs were Jones' seventh and Weiss' second.  Austin Meadows was 2-4 and Reese McGuire didn't play.  Harold Ramirez and Kawika Emsley-Pai each went 2-5.  Emsley-Pai moved up from West Virginia, so Jin-De Jhang, who came out of Thursday's game, is probably hurt.

-- West Virginia fell to Rome, 5-4.  Starter Colten Brewer recovered from a rough first two innings to last six, giving up three runs, two earned, on six hits and a walk.  He struck out three.  The Power had only six hits, all singles.  Jerrick Suiter was 2-2.  Cole Tucker was out of the lineup again; I imagine he has some minor injury.  Connor Joe also didn't play.

-- The DSL Pirates gave up four runs in the bottom of the 9th to lose to the Rangers2, 8-7.  Starter Domingo Robles gave up one run in five innings on five hits and a walk.  He struck out one.  Yondry Contreras was 0-3 with two walks.  Jeremias Portorreal was 2-5.  Eddy Vizcaino and Melvin Jimenez also had two hits each.
