Altoona was rained out.

-- Adrian Sampson threw seven shutout innings to put an end to a string of bad starts in Indianapolis' 4-0 blanking of Louisville.  Sampson threw only 81 pitches and allowed five hits and a walk.  He struck out three.  John Bowker was 2-4 with his third HR and Pedro Florimon 2-5 with a double.  Alen Hanson went 1-5 and Willy Garcia 1-4.

-- Luis Heredia's prospect status continued to disappear in Bradenton's 10-0 stomping at the hands of Palm Beach.  Heredia allowed nine runs in five-plus innings.  He gave up eight hits and two walks, and struck out one.  Austin Meadows and Barrett Barnes each went 2-4.  Reese McGuire was 0-3.

-- The West Virginia Power routed Greensboro, 11-1.  Jordan Luplow was 2-3 with two doubles, Connor Joe 2-4 and Cole Tucker 2-6.  Michael Suchy had a triple and three RBIs, and Trace Tam Sing had a triple and four RBIs.  Elvis Escobar hit his second HR.  Starter Yeudy Garcia allowed one run in five innings on three hits.  He walked none and fanned five.

-- The West Virginia Black Bears hammered Lowell, 12-3.  At one point, the Bears led 7-1 on one hit, thanks to a slew of walks, but they eventually piled up 14 hits.  Logan Hill went 2-6 with his second HR, a grand slam.  Alexis Bastardo was 4-4 with a double and Daniel Arribas 3-5.  Albert Baur and Mitchell Tolman each had two hits.  Kevin Newman was 0-5 and Casey Hughston 1-4.  J.T. Brubaker rebounded from three shaky starts to begin his career, allowing just an unearned run on one hit and one walk in five innings.  He fanned five.

-- Bristol beat Burlington, 7-4.  Carlos Munoz was 2-2 with a double, Julio De La Cruz 2-3, Trae Arbet 2-4 and Henrry Rosario 2-5.  Starter Neil Kozikowski threw four shutout innings, allowing four hits and a walk, and striking out one.

-- The GCL Pirates suffered a walkoff, 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays.  For some odd reason -- unless the box score is wrong, which does happen -- the Pirates used two position players to pitch.  Starter Luis Escobar gave up one run on three hits and two walks in four and two-thirds innings.  He fanned three.  Escobar was followed by catcher Garrett Rossini, who allowed two runs.  This year's 30th round draft pick, Mike Wallace, made his pro debut.  He threw two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and striking out three.  Infielder Luis Perez relieved Wallace to pitch the 9th and gave up a walkoff RBI single with one out.  Michael De La Cruz went 2-5, Adrian Valerio had a double in four at-bats and Ke'Bryan Hayes went 1-3.

-- No result was available for the DSL Pirates.
