Cannonballs Coming: Final day of the minor league regular season

-- Blake Wood gave up three runs in the bottom of the 9th to blow a 2-0 lead and leave Indianapolis with a 3-2 loss to Louisville.  The blown save wasted seven shutout innings by Chris Volstad, who allowed just four hits, walked none and fanned six.  Gorkys Hernandez, Steve Lombardozzi and Gustavo Nunez each had two hits.  Josh Bell was 0-4 and Alen Hanson didn't play.

-- Altoona blew an early five-run lead and lost to Binghamton in 12 innings, 8-6.  The Curve went with a bullpen game and it mostly worked out well except for Robert Stock, who walked six batters in two innings, resulting in five runs.  (Stock, a recent acquisition from independent ball, has walked ten in four and a third innings with Altoona.)  The game stayed tied, 6-6, from the 4th inning into extras, as the teams turned to position players to pitch.  Mets' outfielder Brock Peterson threw three scoreless innings, which Altoona utility player Jonathan Schwind matched.  Then the Curve went with veteran outfielder Andy Vasquez for his tenth career pitching appearance and third of the year, and he gave up a walkoff HR.  Eric Wood went 4-6, Sebastian Valle 3-5 with a double, and Adam Frazier 3-6 with a double.  Austin Meadows was 2-6 with a double.

-- West Virginia scored seven times in the 6th inning to beat Kannapolis, 9-3.  Kevin Newman and Michael Suchy (pictured) each went 2-5.  Suchy had two doubles and three RBIs.  Pablo Reyes and Tyler Filliben each went 2-4 with a double.  Starter Alex McRae gave up three runs, two earned, in six innings.

-- Morgantown clinched a wild card berth with an 8-2 win over Mahoning Valley.  Mitchell Tolman was 2-5 with a double and Daniel Arribas 2-4.  Casey Hughston hit his second HR, a three-run shot.  Ke'Bryan Hayes was 1-4 and Carlow Munoz 0-3.  J.T. Brubaker gave up one run in six innings.  He allowed five hits and no walks, and struck out four.  Brubaker had an ERA of 6.64 in his first five starts and 1.36 in his last ten.  Eli was at this game and will have more later on.
