Cannonballs Coming: Glasnow makes uneven AAA debut

New, 21 comments

Bradenton was rained out.

-- As I write this, Indianapolis is tied with Charlotte, 4-4, after eleven innings.  Tyler Glasnow's AAA debut was a mixed bag.  On the plus side, he fanned seven in five and a third innings while walking only one.  On the minus side, he gave up nine hits and four runs, three of them unearned.  Glasnow breezed through the first two innings, but his own throwing error prolonged the 3rd and led to two runs.  In the 4th, he gave up three two-out hits, leading to one run, plus a second that scored on an error by Keon Broxton.  Josh Bell also made his AAA debut and was 0-5 through the 11th.  He twice missed chances for walkoff hits.  Willy Garcia was 3-6 with two doubles and his third AAA HR.  Tony Sanchez was 2-4, also with his third HR.  Dan Gamache and Gorkys Hernandez each had two hits.  Alen Hanson was 0-6.

-- Altoona failed to hold an early 4-0 lead and lost to Akron, 5-4.  Chad Kuhl gave up four runs on seven hits, including three solo HRs, over five innings.  Brett McKinney gave up a fourth solo HR for the winning run.  Jacob Stallings and Adam Frazier were each 2-4 and Max Moroff 2-5.  Barrett Barnes hit his first AA HR.

-- The West Virginia Power blanked Lakewood, 4-0.  Elvis Escobar was 3-4 with a triple and Jerrick Suiter (pictured) 3-4 with a double.  Connor Joe was 0-4 and Cole Tucker was out of the lineup again.  Alex McRae threw five scoreless innings, and Dovydas Neverauskas and Sam Street each threw two.

-- Morgantown took a 4-0 lead in the 1st, gave up six runs in the 2nd, then managed to squeak by Connecticut, 7-6.  Albert Baur went 4-4 with a double, while Casey Hughston and Christian Kelley each went 2-4.  Kevin Newman was 1-4 and Kevin Kramer 1-5.  Starter Bret Helton recorded only four outs, giving up all six of the runs, two of them unearned.  Recent draftees Daniel Zamora and Tate Scioneaux each threw two scoreless innings.

-- Bristol had one of its regular pitching meltdowns in an 11-4 loss to Danville.  The Pirates now have a staff ERA of 5.13.  Starter Neil Kozikowski only gave up two runs in five innings, but Shane Kemp and Mervin Del Rosario allowed nine in the next three.  Bristol had only five hits.  Carlos Munoz was 0-2.

-- The GCL Pirates won the completion of their suspended game with the Yankees2, 6-3.  The game was stopped yesterday with the Bucs up, 2-0, after two innings.  Victor Fernandez went 3-3, and Jhoan Herrera and Ke'Bryan Hayes each went 2-4.  Jose Batista gave up two unearned runs over four innings to get the win.  The regularly scheduled game was suspended due to rain after one scoreless inning.

-- No result was available for the DSL Pirates.
