Matt Morris Report: Holdzkom fans side in return

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

-- John Holdzkom made a strong return to the mound as Indianapolis edged Rochester, 5-4.  After missing a month with shoulder fatigue, Holdzkom struck out the side in his one inning, throwing 13 of 17 pitches for strikes.  Wilfredo Boscan continued pitching not-so-well since his return from Pittsburgh, giving up three runs on seven hits in five innings.  Brent Morel was 3-4 with his third HR.  Elias Diaz and Mel Rojas, Jr., each went 2-4.  Alen Hanson was 1-5.

-- Stetson Allie had a big day as Altoona topped Reading, 6-2.  Allie went 3-4 with two doubles and his eighth HR.  Gift Ngoepe was 3-5 and Willy Garcia 2-5.  Eric Wood was 2-3, Max Moroff 1-4 and Josh Bell 1-3, and each of the three had a double.  Angel Sanchez gave up eight hits in six innings, but allowed only two runs, didn't walk anybody and fanned five.

-- Bradenton outlasted Clearwater in thirteen innings, 5-2.  Barrett Barnes provided all the offense for the Marauders in regulation, connecting for his second and third HRs.  He was 2-6 on the day.  Reese McGuire, who was also 2-6, broke the tie with an RBI single in the 13th.  Harold Ramirez was 2-5 and Erich Weiss 2-6 with a double.  Austin Meadows continued his recent struggles, going 0-6.  Starter Frank Duncan, who's also been struggling lately, gave up one run on seven hits in five innings.  He walked none and fanned eight.

-- West Virginia got hammered by Savannah, 9-1.  After a string of good outings, Yeudy Garcia allowed four runs in four innings.  He gave up six hits, walked three and struck out two.  Pablo Reyes and Chase Simpson each went 2-4, with Reyes hitting his sixth HR.  Connor Joe was 0-4.  Cole Tucker remained out of the lineup.

-- No result was available for the DSL Pirates.
