Cannonballs Coming: Several debuts at new levels

Bradenton was off.

-- Indianapolis got one-hit by Louisville and Michael Lorenzen in a 3-0 loss.  A Travis Snider single and two walks provided the only baserunners.  Vance Worley got hit around some, allowing three runs on nine hits in six innings.  It took him 102 pitches to get that far.  He walked three and struck out two.

-- Altoona rallied from a five-run deficit with a run in the 8th and four in the 9th, but lost in ten to Reading, 8-6.  Erich Weiss (pictured) went 3-4 with a triple, and is now hitting .319 in AA.  Adam Frazier went 3-5.  Barrett Barnes went 2-5, but struck out with the winning run on third and one out in the bottom of the 9th.  Zack Dodson gave up two runs and struck out six in five innings.  Clario Perez struggled to throw strikes for the second straight time, giving up three walks and four runs in two innings.  Jhondaniel Medina walked in the two go-ahead runs in the 10th, although both runs were unearned due to Medina throwing away a bunt.

-- West Virginia beat Augusta, 4-2.  Kevin Kramer made his full season debut, playing second and going 0-3 with two walks and two runs scored.  Kevin Newman was 2-4 with a double, leaving him with a .400 average over his last ten games.  Chase Simpson was also 2-4.  Stephen Tarpley allowed one run in seven innings on five hits and three walks.  He struck out two.

-- Morgantown beat Batavia, 4-2.  Ke'Bryan Hayes made his debut at the level, playing third and going 0-4 with two strikeouts.  The Black Bears had only four hits, including a triple by Logan Hill.  Seth McGarry allowed only one run and three hits in three and two thirds innings, but he walked four while striking out five.  Cesilio Pimentel struck out another five in three and a third innings of relief.

-- Bristol got shut out by Pulaski, 4-0.  Starter Mitch Keller had control problems, walking four in four and a third innings.  He gave up only one run and one hit, though, and fanned five.  The Pirates had only four hits.  Raul Siri went 1-4 in his debut at the level, playing third.

-- The GCL Pirates lost their tenth straight, 1-0, to the Phillies.  The Bucs had only four hits.  Starter Luis Escobar threw three scoreless innings, allowing one hit and no walks, and striking out two.
