Cannonballs Coming: Glasnow shows why he's not nearly ready for the bigs

Bristol was rained out.

-- Tyler Glasnow had trouble throwing strikes in Indianapolis' 8-5 loss to Durham.  Glasnow gave up only one earned run and three hits, with six strikeouts, in four and two-thirds innings.  Unfortunately, he walked six and gave up three unearned runs in the 5th due to an error by Alen Hanson, who was back at second.  The Bulls also ran wild on the combination of Glasnow and Tony Sanchez, stealing six bases in seven tries.  Obviously, Glasnow continued to show he's very hard to hit, but throwing only 46 of 94 pitches for strikes isn't workable in the majors.  Elias Diaz was 2-4 with a triple and Josh Bell 2-5.  Hanson went 1-4 and Gustavo Nunez hit his second HR.

-- Altoona blanked New Britain, 5-0.  Matt Benedict, who seems to have a start like this about every fourth time out, went seven innings and allowed only five hits and a walk.  He struck out two.  Barrett Barnes (pictured) went 3-5 with his second AA HR, Adam Frazier 2-5 with two doubles, and Mel Rojas 2-3 with two doubles.  Eric Wood was 2-3 with a double and Jacob Stallings 2-5.

-- Bradenton lost to Jupiter, 8-3.  Starter Felipe Gonzalez gave up five runs in an inning and two-thirds.  Junior Sosa was 2-3, and Harold Ramirez and Trace Tam Sing each 2-4.  Austin Meadows was 1-5.

-- The West Virginia Power got clobbered by Asheville, 12-5.  Starter Alex McRae gave up nine runs on seven hits and six walks in four and a third innings.  Sam Street and Jared Lakind combined to walk another six, making a total of a dozen for the game.  Jordan Luplow went 4-5 with a double and his ninth HR.  Connor Joe was 2-4 and Michael Suchy 2-5 with a double.

-- Morgantown scored twice in the bottom of the 9th to tie their game with State College, but ended up losing in ten innings, 7-6.  Starter Bret Helton got hammered again, allowing six runs, four earned, on eleven hits in four innings.  His ERA now stands at 6.06.  The suddenly blistering Casey Hughston went 3-4 with a double, making him 14-26 (.538) in his last seven games.  Kevin Newman was 3-6 with a double.  Ryan Nagle was 2-3, Mitchell Tolman 2-5 with a double, and Logan Hill 2-6.

-- The GCL Pirates lost to the Braves, 4-3, in ten innings.  Rob Scahill went two innings in a rehab outing, facing six hitters and striking out one.  The Pirates had only three hits, including doubles by Sam Kennelly and Victor Fernandez.  They did draw eight walks, three of them by Ke'Bryan Hayes.

-- No results were available for the DSL Pirates.
