Matt Morris Report: Four hits for JaCoby Jones

Bristol was rained out again.

-- Indianapolis lost to Toledo, 4-1.  Chris Volstad lasted only three and two-thirds innings, taking 91 pitches to get that far.  He allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks, while striking out two.  Tony Sanchez went 2-3 and Alen Hanson 2-4.  Willy Garcia was 1-4.

-- Altoona got bombed by Trenton, 10-4.  Zack Dodson gave up four runs, three earned, on ten hits in six innings.  Matt Benedict gave up five runs in two-thirds of an inning.  Adam Frazier was 2-2 with two doubles and a walk.  He's now hitting .374.  Dan Gamache was 3-5 with a double and Josh Bell 2-5.

-- Bradenton scored two in the bottom of the 9th for a 9-8 walkoff win over Charlotte.  JaCoby Jones (pictured) returned from a week's absence to go 4-5 with a double and his ninth HR.  He also scored the winning run on a wild pitch that came during an intentional walk.  Austin Meadows went 2-5 with his third HR.  Barrett Barnes, Erich Weiss and Reese McGuire each went 2-4.  Harold Ramirez was 1-4 with a double.  Jayson Aquino continues to be very erratic.  He gave up four runs in the 1st, finishing with six runs allowed on nine hits in five innings.  He walked one and struck out three.

-- The West Virginia Power got shut out, 3-0, by Kannapolis in a game that was shortened by rain to seven innings.  Alex McRae gave up three runs in five innings.  The Power had only two hits.  Cole Tucker and Connor Joe each went 0-3.  Joe is just 6-for-35 (.171) in his last ten games.

-- The West Virginia Black Bears continued to struggle on offense, getting only four hits in a 6-1 loss to State College.  J.T. Brubaker gave up three runs on six hits in five innings.  He walked none and struck out one.  Ty Moore was 2-3.  Casey Hughston was 0-3 and is now 1-for-36.

-- The GCL Pirates shut out the Braves, 2-0.  Starter Luis Escobar gave up just a hit and a walk in five innings, with four strikeouts.  Escobar, who was one of the better pitchers the Pirates brought up from the DSL this year, failed to get out of the 1st inning in his first start.  In two starts since then, though, he's allowed just two hits and a walk in ten innings, with ten strikeouts.  Jared Lakind, in the GCL on rehab, struck out five in two innings while allowing a hit and a walk.  The top of the order didn't do much on offense.  Adrian Valerio and Michael De La Cruz each went 0-3.  Ke'Bryan Hayes was 0-2, but he drew two walks.  Raul Siri was 1-4.  Eric Thomas went 2-3.

-- The DSL Pirates blew an early five-run lead and a late three-run lead, and lost to the Tigers, 13-12.  Starter Adonis Pichardo gave up four runs on six hits in three and two-thirds innings.  He walked two and struck out three.  Raul Hernandez was 2-2 with two doubles, Huascar Fuentes 2-5 with a triple and Eddy Vizcaino 2-4.  Christopher Perez was 1-4 and Yondry Contreras 0-5.
