Cannonballs Coming: Tyler Glasnow pitches, hits Indy to win

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

-- Tyler Glasnow bounced back from the shortest outing of his career with the longest, going seven and a third innings in Indianapolis' 5-1 win over Louisville.  Glasnow gave up one run on a solo HR, one of six hits he allowed, while walking none and striking out eight.  After a control meltdown in his last start, he threw 64 of 90 pitches for strikes.  (It should be noted that, aside from Brennan Boesch, Louisville didn't have much in its lineup.)  He also had a two-run double off top Reds prospect Robert Stephenson.  Gustavo Nunez went 3-4, and Gorkys Hernandez and John Bowker each had two hits.  Travis Ishikawa played first and went 0-3.  Josh Bell replaced Ishikawa late in the game and hit a two-run triple in his only plate appearance, bumping his AAA average to .359.

-- Altoona clinched a wild card spot with a 4-1 win over Binghamton.  Jason Creasy allowed one run over six innings on four hits and two walks.  He struck out two.  Austin Meadows went 2-3 with a walk, a double and a triple, giving him triples in three straight games.  Since his promotion, he's 7-for-19 (.368).  Adam Frazier hit his second HR and Max Moroff had a two-run double.

-- Bradenton scored five in the 5th to close its season with a 6-2 win over St. Lucie.  Frank Duncan gave up nine hits over six innings, but only two runs.  He walked one and struck out six.  Junior Sosa drove in three runs, going 2-4 with a double and a triple.  Jordan Steranka and Trace Tam Sing were also 2-4, with Sing adding a double.  With the Marauders out of the playoff picture, and West Virginia and Altoona both having clinched post-season berths, promotions and non-promotions have left Bradenton heavy on organizational players.  Apart from the players already named, the lineup today included Jeff Roy, Justin Maffei and Michael Fransoso.

-- West Virginia beat Kannapolis, 8-3.  Yeudy Garcia went four innings, giving up two hits and two walks, with four strikeouts.  The two runs scored with the help of a balk and a delayed double steal.  The Pirates may have taken Garcia out early with an eye on the playoffs.  He's up to 124 innings now, more than twice what he threw last year (which wouldn't count exhibitions and extended spring training).  Jose Regalado threw three scoreless innings to get the win.  Kevin Newman returned to the lineup and went 2-6 with a double.  Kevin Kramer was 3-5 with a double and Elvis Escobar 2-5 with a double and three RBIs.  Michael Suchy broke out of a slump to go 2-3 with a double and two walks, and Jerrick Suiter also went 2-3.  Pablo Reyes hit a three-run HR, giving him a dozen HRs on the year.  Reyes has quietly put up a good year, hitting 266/344/435 with a good 46:62 BB:K ratio.  He turned 22 yesterday, so he's been, at worst, just slightly old for low A.  He'll present the Pirates with a dilemma next year.  He's a second baseman, and he and Kramer both appear best suited to be at Bradenton next year.

-- Morgantown scored five in the 1st, managed to fall behind, 6-5, then went on to a 12-8 win over Mahoning Valley.  The win left Morgantown a game ahead of two other teams in the wild card race, with one day left in the season.  Ke'Bryan Hayes and Casey Hughston each went 2-4 with a double and a walk.  Hughston drove in four runs and Hayes three.  Logan Hill was 3-6 with a double, while Mitchell Tolman and Erik Forgione each had two hits.  Luis Escobar, in his second start since being promoted from the GCL, gave up five runs, four earned, in three and a third innings.  Julio Eusebio got the save with two and a third scoreless innings, allowing a hit and no walks, and striking out three.
