Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

-- Indianapolis lost to Louisville, 9-5.  Brad Lincoln, pressed into starting duty, gave up six runs, five earned, on six hits and three walks in four innings.  He struck out six.  Josh Bell (pictured) went 2-3.  Since starting his AAA stint 1-for-17, he's gone 27-for-65 (.415).  Keon Broxton and Steve Lombardozzi were each 2-5.  Lombardozzi had his fifth two-error game of the year.  He has 21 errors, all but two of them throwing errors, and hasn't actually played in the field all that much.  He has ten errors in 14 games at second and ten in 18 at third.  Travis Snider was 1-4 and Corey Hart popped out as a pinch hitter.

-- Altoona scored twice in the bottom of the 8th on singles by Max Moroff and Jose Osuna to beat Reading, 3-2.  Steven Brault gave up just one run in seven innings.  He allowed five hits and three walks, and struck out four.  Moroff and Osuna each went 2-4, with Osuna's other hit a double.  Barrett Barnes was 2-3.

-- Bradenton got blanked by Palm Beach, 5-0.  The Marauders had only four hits.  Harold Ramirez was 1-4 with a double.  Starter Felipe Gonzalez gave up three runs in five innings.

-- West Virginia beat Augusta, 7-3.  Tyler Filliben was 2-4 and Kevin Newman, Elvis Escobar and Chase Simpson were all 2-5.  Filliben, Escobar and Simpson all had doubles.  Newman is 14-for-40 (.350) in his last nine games.  Jordan Luplow is on the seven-day disabled list.  Austin Coley gave up two runs, one earned, in five innings.

-- Morgantown edged Batavia, 3-2.  Brandon Waddell started but didn't last long.  He faced six hitters, retiring only one and allowing two runs.  One of the five other hitters reached on a fielder's choice, one on an error, one on an infield hit, one on a "soft fly ball single," and one on a walk.  Juan Paula, Jerry Mulderig and Nick Hibbing combined to throw eight and two-thirds scoreless innings.  Ty Moore was 1-2 with two walks, Logan Hill 1-3 with a double.

-- Bristol lost to Kingsport, 6-0.  Billy Roth gave up two runs, one earned, in five innings.  He allowed four hits and four walks, and struck out four.  Carlos Munoz was 1-4.

-- The GCL Pirates lost for the ninth straight time, 5-4, to the Blue Jays.  Starter Nicholas Economos bounced back from a rough outing to give up two runs, one earned, over five innings.  He allowed just three hits and a walk, and fanned five.  Michael De La Cruz went 2-2 with a walk, but came out for a pinch runner.  Adrian Valerio was 1-3 with a double.
