Cannonballs Coming: Carlos Munoz homers three times

Bradenton and the GCL Pirates were rained out.  It was the fourth straight day on which the GCL Bucs were rained out or had a game suspended.

-- Indianapolis lost to Louisville, 4-2, in ten innings.  Starter Wilfredo Boscan gave up two runs over five innings.  Gustavo Nunez, John Bowker, Willy Garcia and Gorkys Hernandez each had two hits.  Alen Hanson went 0-4.  Justin Sellers at long last rejoined the team, playing short and going 1-4.  He's been outrighted by the Pirates, so he's no longer on the 40-man roster.

-- Altoona got pummeled by Akron, 9-1.  Jason Creasy continued to struggle, giving up seven runs in three innings.  Dan Gamache was 3-4, Adam Frazier 2-5, Barrett Barnes 2-4 and Mel Rojas 2-3.  Gamache and Frazier each had doubles.  Josh Bell was 0-4.

-- The West Virginia Power beat Hagerstown, 6-2.  Yeudy Garcia didn't have one of his better starts, but still allowed only two runs in five innings.  He gave up six hits and two walks, and struck out two.  John Sever added three scoreless innings.  Elvis Escobar was 2-5 with a double and his fourth HR.  Francisco Diaz was 2-3 with a triple and Pablo Reyes 2-5.  Cole Tucker was 1-5 with his 25th stolen base.

-- The West Virginia Black Bears won their eighth straight, shutting out Staten Island on one hit, 3-0.  J.T. Brubaker allowed just one hit and walked none over six innings.  He fanned three.  John Holdzkom added a perfect inning with two strikeouts.  Danny Arribas and Erik Forgione were each 2-3, and Ty Moore 2-4.  Kevin Kramer was 1-4.

-- Bristol stomped Pulaski, 12-5, as #FreeCarlosMunoz (pictured, and yes it's official now) launched three HRs, giving him six on the year.  He finished 3-4 with four runs and five RBIs.  Erik Lunde added a grand slam, his second HR.  Trae Arbet was 2-5 with a double.  The Pirates also benefited from nine walks.  Starter Gage Hinsz struggled again, giving up three runs in three innings on five hits and four walks.  He struck out three.  Scooter Hightower allowed two runs in five innings while striking out seven.

-- The DSL Pirates beat the Tigers, 7-2.  Ramy Perez went 3-5.  Christopher Perez, Julio Gonzalez and Raul Hernandez each had two hits.  Miguel Hernandez gave up just an unearned run in five innings.  He allowed three hits and two walks, and struck out two.
