The GCL and DSL Pirates were off.
-- Tyler Glasnow threw five shutout innings, striking out seven, as Indianapolis beat Durham, 4-1. Glasnow's outing wasn't the smoothest, though, as he walked three and threw only 48 of 89 pitches for strikes. He gave up five hits. Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer continued their rehabs, going 0-4 and 0-3, respectively. Josh Bell went 3-3 with a double and a walk. After a slow start, he's suddenly hitting .309. Willy Garcia was 2-4 with a double and Steve Lombardozzi also went 2-4. Alen Hanson was 0-4. Rob Scahill made a rehab appearance as well, allowing a run in his one inning.
-- Altoona edged Richmond, 4-3. Jason Creasy had his best start in a month and a half, allowing two runs in seven innings on five hits. He walked none and struck out two. The Curve had only five hits.
-- Bradenton lost to St. Lucie, 5-3. Frank Duncan gave up three runs on seven hits over five innings. Chris Diaz went 3-4 with a double and Austin Meadows 2-4 with a triple. Harold Ramirez and Reese McGuire each went 0-4.
-- Yeudy Garcia (pictured) continued his breakout season as West Virginia beat Hickory, 3-1. Garcia allowed just one hit and one walk over five shutout innings. He struck out three. John Sever gave up one run over the last four innings to pick up the save. Garcia is now over 100 innings on the season, after going 59.2 in the DSL last year, plus whatever he threw in training camp there. The team has employed various means to keep his workload under control, like skipping a start or two and holding him to very short outings at times. Hopefully he'll be ready to take on a full schedule next year, which he should open at Bradenton. The Power offense cooled off for a day, getting only five hits. Tito Polo was 2-4 with a triple and Kevin Newman 1-4.
-- It took Morgantown three tries to hold a lead in the bottom of the last inning, but they finally succeeded in a fourteen-inning, 4-3 win over State College. The Black Bears took a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the 9th, but Daniel Zamora, who'd been nearly unhittable in his first eight pro games, failed to retire any of the three batters he faced. Nick Hibbing relieved and two of the runners scored. The Bears took the lead again in the 13th, but Hibbing, still in the game, gave up a two-out walk and triple. Morgantown scored again in the 14th and this time Hibbing made it stand up despite letting the first two hitters in the bottom half reach base. Hibbing ended up going six innings in relief, something you don't see a lot in the minors. He gave up three hits and four walks, and was charged with one run of his own, while striking out three. Starter J.T. Brubaker threw six shutout innings, allowing just one hit and one walk, while fanning four. Kevin Kramer was 3-5 with a triple, bringing his average up to .265 after a rough start. Mitchell Tolman was 3-6. Christian Kelley, Albert Baur, Ryan Nagle and Alexis Bastardo had two hits apiece, with Kelley singling in the winning run in the 14th. Logan Hill and Ty Moore remained out of the lineup, although neither is on the disabled list.
-- Bristol walloped Bluefield, 9-2, and didn't even need Carlos Munoz to do it. Jordan George had three doubles in five at-bats, and drove in four. Sandy Santos went 2-3 with three walks, and Nick Buckner and Erik Lunde each went 3-5. Bealyn Chourio added his first professional HR. Logan Sendelbach, who's struggled a lot since being drafted in the tenth round, gave up one run on just two hits and a walk in six innings. He struck out four.
