Cannonballs Coming: Angel Sanchez leaves with injury, Meadows goes deep

-- Blake Wood almost blew a four-run 9th inning lead, but Indianapolis held on to edge Norfolk, 6-5.  Starter Angel Sanchez exited with one out in the 4th with an unknown injury.  Brad Lincoln threw three and two-thirds scoreless innings, although he let a run charged to Sanchez score.  Willy Garcia went 3-5 with a double and Gustavo Nunez 2-5 with two doubles.  Jaff Decker went 2-3 and Elias Diaz drove in three runs.  Keon Broxton was 1-3 with two walks, two steals and three runs.  Broxton is now 24-27 in steal attempts in 61 AAA games.  Josh Bell was 0-2 with two walks.

-- Altoona beat Richmond, 4-2.  Tom Harlan made a spot start, allowing one run in five innings on five hits and a walk, with four strikeouts.  Sebastian Valle went 2-4.

-- Bradenton beat Charlotte, 6-4.  Luis Heredia had yet another rough start.  He allowed only one earned run and struck out five in four innings, but he gave up eight hits and three unearned runs.  Andy Otamendi followed with three scoreless innings and Dovydas Neverauskas threw two scoreless innings, striking out three, for the save.  Jin-De Jhang went 2-4 and hit his second HR of the year, a three-run shot, off former Pirate Buddy Borden.  Austin Meadows also homered, his sixth.  Wyatt Mathisen went 2-3 with a triple and Jordan Steranka was 2-5.  Harold Ramirez was 1-3 and Reese McGuire 0-4.

-- West Virginia outlasted Asheville, 7-5, in twelve innings.  The Power had to score a run in the top of the 9th to send the game into extras.  Pablo Reyes (pictured) went 3-5 with a double and his tenth HR.  Elvis Escobar went 4-6 with a double and drove in the go-ahead run in the 12th.  Jordan Luplow went 2-5 with his 32nd double and drove in the tying run in the 9th.  Michael Suchy was 3-6 with a double and Taylor Gushue went 2-4.  Starter Colten Brewer gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk in five innings.  He fanned five.

-- Morgantown beat State College, 4-1.  Dario Agrazal gave up the only run on just two hits and no walks over seven innings.  He struck out three.  Mitchell Tolman was 3-4 with two doubles, Logan Hill 2-4 and Albert Baur 2-3.  Kevin Newman went 0-4.

-- Bristol lost to Greeneville, 6-3.  Billy Roth exited after one inning due to a long rain delay.  Neil Kozikowski allowed just an unearned run in five innings of relief.  Nick Buckner went 2-4.  Carlos Munoz was 0-4.  The Pirates' catcher, Tomas Morales, had a rough day, committing two errors while Greeneville stole seven bases against him in seven tries (excluding a pickoff by the pitcher).

-- The GCL Pirates won a wild one from the Yankees1, 13-8.  This was the completion of a game that was suspended several weeks ago with the bad guys leading, 6-5.  They didn't finish it this time, either, as the game was shortened by rain to seven and a half innings and the regularly scheduled game was postponed.  Raul Siri went 2-5 with a double, triple and three RBIs, and Ke'Bryan Hayes was 2-3 with two walks.  Nelson Jorge was 2-4 and Edison Lantigua 2-5.  Michael De La Cruz hit a grand slam, his first HR of the season.  Yunior Montero pitched the final four innings, allowing one run and fanning six, to get the win.

-- The DSL Pirates lost to the Red Sox2, 10-4.  Felix Vinicio was 2-4 with two doubles.
