Cannonballs Coming: Indianapolis can't rally to prevent 2-0 deficit

New, comments

A late rally fell short as Indianapolis dropped a 5-4 decision to Columbus.  The Indians fell behind, 3-0, after two innings.  Starter Wilfredo Boscan eventually gave up five runs, three of them earned, in six innings.  He allowed five hits, including two HRs.  Much of Indianapolis' offense came from walks, one of them with the bases loaded in the 7th.  Indy trailed 5-2 going into the 9th, then rallied against Carlos Marmol, who gave up a hit and two walks to load the bases with one out.  Alen Hanson hit a sacrifice fly to make it 5-3, then Marmol walked Gorkys Hernandez to load the bases again.  A left-hander came in to face Josh Bell, who walked to make it 5-4.  Columbus went to right-hander Dustin Molleken, who was originally drafted by the Pirates in some forgotten era.  He retired Willy Garcia to end the game.  Keon Broxton (pictured) went 2-4 with a double.  Indy now trails in the five game series, two games to none.
