Cannonballs Coming: Promotions (no, not the free stuff kind)

-- Indianapolis beat Charlotte and Brad Penny (yes, that Brad Penny), 5-1.  Chris Volstad continued to pitch very well, allowing the one run in seven innings on five hits and a walk, while fanning seven.  Alen Hanson went 2-3 with a triple and three runs scored.  Tony Sanchez was 2-4 with a double.  Dan Gamache made his AAA debut, playing third in place of some guy who's no longer around.  Gamache was 0-3.

-- Altoona got destroyed by Akron, 12-2.  Matt Benedict was left in to give up all 12 runs on 13 hits in four and two-thirds innings, which really seems kinda mean.  Stetson Allie went 2-3 and Adam Frazier 2-4.  Josh Bell went 0-4 in his final AA game; he was promoted to AAA afterward.  Erich Weiss, just up from Bradenton, played second and went 1-4.

-- Bradenton swept a doubleheader from Tampa, winning game one, 5-4, and game two, 5-3.  In the first game, Austin Meadows went 1-3 with his fifth HR.  Harold Ramirez was 2-4 and Wyatt Mathisen 2-3.  Starter Tyler Eppler gave up two runs in two innings, his day apparently cut short by a rain delay.  In game two, Meadows and Ramirez each went 2-4, with Ramirez hitting a double.  Felipe Gonzalez gave up one run over five innings.

-- The West Virginia Power piled up 18 hits in a 9-2 pasting of Lakewood.  Yeudy Garcia (pictured) continued his breakout year, throwing five hitless, shutout innings.  He walked one and fanned five.  Connor Joe hit his first pro HR, Tyler Filliben went 3-5 with two doubles, and Jordan Luplow went 2-5 with a double.  Michael Suchy, Pablo Reyes, Jerrick Suiter, Elvis Escobar and Taylor Gushue also had two hits apiece.

-- Morgantown beat Connecticut, 7-1.  Kevin Newman went 2-5 with his second HR, Albert Baur 2-3 with a double, and Casey Hughston 2-4.  J.T. Brubaker threw five shutout innings, giving up four hits, walking none and striking out four.  Brubaker hasn't allowed a run in his last three starts, covering 16 innings.

-- Bristol got a walkoff HR with no outs in the bottom of the 13th from Edgar Figueroa to beat Danville, 4-2.  The HR was Figueroa's second.  He had entered the game to replace Jonathan Schwind, who was rehabbing.  Carlos Munoz was 2-5 with two doubles and Julio De La Cruz 2-3.  Billy Roth had probably his best outing as a pro, allowing just one run over seven innings on five hits and two walks.  He struck out four.  Christopher De Leon struck out six in three scoreless innings of relief.

-- The GCL Pirates edged the Yankees2, 2-1, in the first game of a doubleheader.  A rehabbing Adam Miller threw the first two innings, then Yunior Montero allowed one run over the next five.  He fanned six.  The Bucs had only three hits, including a double by Jhoan Herrera.  Game two was suspended after two innings with the Bucs leading, 2-0.

-- The DSL Pirates scored three in the top of the 9th to beat the Marlins, 7-5.  Jeremias Portorreal, Huascar Fuentes and Felix Vinicio each had two hits.
