-- Adrian Sampson had another rough outing in Indianapolis' 10-5 loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  Sampson gave up six runs, five earned, in five and two-thirds innings on nine hits and two walks.  He struck out five.  For what it's worth, S/W-B has the International League's second-best hitting team.  Gustavo Nunez was 3-5, and Steve Lombardozzi and Willy Garcia each 2-5.  Alen Hanson was 1-5 and Elias Diaz 1-4.  Gorkys Hernandez went 1-4 to begin a rehab assignment.

-- Altoona beat Erie and former Pirate minor leaguer Derek Hankins, 8-6.  Starter Chad Kuhl gave up four runs, two earned, in five and two-thirds innings.  He allowed five hits and four walks, and struck out seven.  Stetson Allie (pictured) went 3-4 with his 15th HR and three RBIs.  Edward Salcedo hit his second HR, but also committed four errors.  Adam Frazier was 2-5, Dan Gamache 2-4, and Josh Bell 1-3.  Max Moroff didn't play.

-- Bradenton came back from an early 4-0 deficit to beat Dunedin, 8-5.  After a strong start his last time out, Luis Heredia lasted only two innings, giving up four runs on seven hits.  Harold Ramirez went 3-5 with a double, Erich Weiss 2-5 with three RBIs, Jin-De Jhang 2-3, and Wyatt Mathisen 2-4.  Austin Meadows was 1-4 and Reese McGuire 1-3.

-- The West Virginia Power got blanked by Lakewood, 4-0.  Colten Brewer pitched well, giving up one run in four innings.  He allowed three hits and a walk, and fanned five.  The Power managed just four singles.  Cole Tucker was 0-3 and Connor Joe 1-4.

-- The West Virginia Black Bears won their fifth straight by beating Brooklyn, 8-1.  Dario Agrazal gave up one run over five innings, on five hits and no walks.  He fanned six.  Cesilio Pimentel, Daniel Zamora and Sean Keselica combined to allow just one hit and strike out six more over the final four innings.  Ty Moore was 3-5.  He and Logan Hill are both hitting .346.  Christian Kelley was 2-4 and Casey Hughston 1-4.  Kevin Newman was 0-4 but stole three bases.  Kevin Kramer was 1-4 and stole two bases.

-- Bristol lost to Burlington, 5-2.  Starter Neil Kozikowski failed to get out of the first inning, allowing four runs while recording only two outs.  Dan Urbina followed with four scoreless innings, but he allowed both of his inherited runners to score.  Enyel Vallejo went 3-4.  The team's two hot hitters, Carlos Munoz and Trae Arbet, didn't play.

-- The GCL Pirates saw their game with the Yankees1 suspended after three innings with the bad guys up, 7-0.  Ke'Bryan Hayes was back in the lineup after missing a little time with a hand bruise.  He had the Pirates' only hit.

-- The DSL Pirates were routed by the Braves, 14-7.  Huascar Fuentes went 3-3 with a double, Jeremias Portorreal 2-4 with a double and Christopher Perez 2-5 with a triple.  The pitching was . . . bad.
