Cannonballs Coming: Angel Sanchez strong again

-- Indianapolis got edged by Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 2-1, despite another strong effort by Angel Sanchez.  He threw seven shutout innings before allowing the tying run in the 8th.  Sanchez gave up four hits and two walks, and struck out four.  Blake Wood gave up a run in the 9th to take the loss.  The Indians managed only five hits.  Alen Hanson was 1-3 and Hunter Morris 2-3 with a double and a triple.  The S/W-B starter was none other than Diego Moreno, aka Exicardo II.  He threw four shutout innings.

-- Altoona beat Akron, 4-1.  Steven Brault took 91 pitches to get through five innings, but he gave up just one run on five hits and two walks.  He struck out four.  Clario Perez, who's quietly having a good year (1.71 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, .184 opp. BA combined for Altoona and Bradenton, mostly the latter) and is Rule 5 eligible, threw three scoreless innings.  Adam Frazier, Stetson Allie and Jacob Stallings all went 2-4.  Stallings had a double and Allie hit his 16th HR and third in three days.  Max Moroff returned to the lineup to go 1-5.  Josh Bell was 0-4.  Barrett Barnes made his AA debut, going 1-4 out of the cleanup spot.

-- Bradenton beat Dunedin, 6-3.  Harold Ramirez went 3-4 with his second HR and three RBIs.  He's 7-for-13 since returning from the Pan Am games.  Reese McGuire was 2-4 with two doubles.  Austin Meadows was 2-4.  Frank Duncan gave up two runs over seven innings on six hits.  He walked none and struck out three.

-- The West Virginia Power beat Lakewood, 5-1.  Austin Coley gave up one run over five innings on two hits and a walk.  He struck out three.  Jordan Luplow (pictured) was 3-4 with three doubles.  He's slugging .621 in July.  Cole Tucker was 2-5 with a double and Jerrick Suiter 2-4.  Connor Joe was 0-3.

-- The West Virginia Black Bears beat Brooklyn, 8-3.  Kevin Newman went 2-5 with a double and a triple, and Alexis Bastardo 2-4 with four RBIs.  Starter Juan Paula gave up three runs in five innings.  Edgar Santana fanned five in three scoreless innings of relief.  John Holdzkom made a rehab appearance, putting up a perfect inning with one strikeout.  No ball/strike numbers, unfortunately.

-- Bristol gave up five runs in the 1st inning, but came back to beat Burlington, 11-6.  Starter Logan Sendelbach recorded only two outs, but Shane Kemp, Christopher De Leon and Palmer Betts combined for eight and a third innings with just one unearned run allowed.  Sandy Santos went 4-5 with a double and Trae Arbet 2-5.  Carlos Munoz went 3-4 with three runs scored.  He's now hitting 391/472/598.

-- The GCL Pirates resumed their suspended game from yesterday with the Yankees1, but it was suspended again in the 5th inning.  The Bucs were trailing 7-0 when the rains came the first time, but had closed to 8-5, mainly on the strength of a Michael De La Cruz grand slam.  The regularly scheduled game was rained out, obviously.

-- The DSL Pirates lost to the Braves, 4-0.  They haven't been much fun to write about this year, with their key signees all either hurt or struggling, or both.  They had only four hits in this game.
