Cannonballs Coming: Indy, Morgantown win, Altoona doesn't

West Virginia had an off day.

-- Indianapolis took a 2-0 lead in its series with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre by winning game two, 6-1.  Vance Worley gave up just an unearned run over eight innings.  He allowed six hits, walked one and struck out three.  Josh Bell and Keon Broxton each drove in two runs.  Gorkys Hernandez was 2-3 and Dan Gamache 2-4.

-- Altoona couldn't repeat its game one heroics and lost game two to Bowie, 8-0, evening the series.  Tyler Eppler gave up three runs on six hits in six innings.  He walked one and struck out two.  The Curve had eight hits, but couldn't get on the board.  Max Moroff was 2-4 with a double and Austin Meadows 1-4 with a double.  This series features two teams that had successful years for very different reasons.  The thirteen players used by Bowie average nearly 26 years of age.  Altoona's dozen players average a little over 23 and the oldest is 25.  Eppler is 22.  Of the four Bowie pitchers, three are 27 and one is 25, and they've combined to pitch over 300 games in AA and AAA.  The Bowie starter has pitched over 100 games just in AAA.  Eppler has pitched two in AA.

-- Morgantown edged Williamsport, 2-1, in the first game of its series.  Dario Agrazal gave up one run in six and two-thirds innings on five hits and two walks.  He struck out five.  Tate Scioneaux went the last two and a third, allowing one hit and striking out five.  Daniel Arribas drove in both runs, the first on a solo HR and the second on a fly ball double play that brought a runner in from third while a trailing runner got thrown out.  (The box score at this point credits Arribas with an RBI but not a sac fly, which makes no sense.  It may get changed later.)  Carlos Munoz went 3-4 with a double and Mitchell Tolman 2-4 with a double.  Ke'Bryan Hayes was 0-2 with two walks and two strikeouts.
