Cannonballs Coming: Willy Garcia, Max Moroff go deep

West Virginia got the day off.

-- Wilfredo Boscan returned from DFA limbo to throw seven scoreless innings in Indianapolis' 3-0 shutout win over Toledo.  Boscan allowed five hits, walked two and struck out five.  Willy Garcia went 2-4 with his seventh HR, Josh Bell 2-4 with a double and John Bowker 3-4 with a double.  Jordy Mercer went 2-4 while playing short for seven innings.  Josh Harrison played second and went 0-4.

-- Altoona lost to Binghamton, 5-4.  Matt Benedict gave up just one run over seven innings, allowing four hits and a walk, and striking out five.  Clario Perez, however, gave up four in the 8th to take the loss.  Max Moroff and Mel Rojas both went deep, Moroff's seventh and Rojas' second.  Moroff was 2-4 and drove in three runs.

-- Bradenton beat Charlotte, 5-2.  Starter Luis Heredia gave up the two runs, but lasted only four and two-thirds innings as it took him 86 pitches to get that far.  Heredia gave up seven hits, walked one and struck out five.  Dovydas Neverauskas threw two scoreless innings for the save.  Chris Diaz went 3-3 and Harold Ramirez 2-4 with a double.  Austin Meadows drove in three runs with a double and a groundout.

-- Morgantown lost to Aberdeen, 4-1.  Dario Agrazal gave up three runs in five innings.  The Black Bears had only four hits.  Logan Hill and Ty Moore both came out of the game for some reason.

-- Bristol lost to Elizabethton, 5-4.  Billy Roth threw shutout ball for five innings, but gave up five runs, three earned, in the 6th and 7th.  He finished with six and two-thirds innings pitched, eleven hits, one walk and one strikeout.  Neil Kozikowski fanned five over the final two and a third.  Trae Arbet was 2-4 and Sandy Santos hit his fifth HR.  Carlos Munoz was 1-3.

-- The GCL Pirates beat the Phillies, 7-3.  Adrian Valerio (pictured) went 3-5 with two doubles and four RBIs.  Valerio has struggled over the last month or so, but he's only 18 and figures to get stronger.  He hasn't been overwhelmed; he's striking out in fewer than a sixth of his ABs and he's shown surprising gap power.  Garrett Russini was 3-4, KeBryan Hayes 2-4 and Sam Kennelly 2-5.  Michael De La Cruz hit his second HR.  Nick Economos pitched well over five innings except for a bad 3rd inning, when he allowed all three runs and all four of the hits he gave up.  He walked two and struck out two.  Alex Martinez followed with four scoreless innings, giving up three hits and no walks, and striking out four.

-- The DSL Pirates got blasted by the Braves, 13-5.  Eddy Vizcaino was 3-5 with a double and Christopher Perez 2-4 with a double.  The pitching was really bad.
