-- Indianapolis lost a seesaw game to Columbus, 8-7, in 11 innings.  Steven Brault gave up only two runs, but came out after four and two-thirds innings, as he had a tough time putting hitters away and threw 82 pitches.  He gave up five hits and a walk, and struck out two.  He was followed by four relievers, each of whom gave up at least one run.  The #1-5 hitters in the Indy lineup combined to go 11-23, but the #6-9 hitters went 0-15.  The Indians fell behind by a run in the tenth, but tied the game when Adam Frazier reached second on a two-out error and Danny Ortiz singled him in.  They fell behind again in the eleventh and had a chance to tie it again when Alen Hanson (pictured) tripled to lead off the bottom half.  Gift Ngoepe then struck out, though, and Josh Bell lined into a double play.  Others:

Hanson:  3-5, 3B, BB
Ngoepe:  2-4, 2B
Bell:  2-5, 2B, BB
Jason Rogers:  3-5, 2 2B
Max Moroff:  1-4, HR (1), BB
Willy Garcia:  0-4, BB
Trey Haley:  2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB

-- Altoona went into the top of the ninth trailing Richmond, 3-1, but scored four times for a 5-3 win.  After scoring only on Eric Wood's first HR in the first eight innings, the Curve loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth.  Justin Maffei walked to bring in one run, followed by a three-run triple by Erich Weiss.  Much like Cody Dickson yesterday, starter David Whitehead managed to throw five shutout innings despite walking four and throwing only 40 of 79 pitches for strikes.  He also hit a batter and threw two wild pitches.  Whitehead allowed only one hit and fanned four.  Others:

Stetson Allie:  2-4, 2B
Reese McGuire:  2-4
Jose Osuna:  1-5, 2B
Barrett Barnes:  1-4
Montana DuRapau:  1 IP, 1 H, 1 K, Sv

-- Bradenton scored the only run in a 1-0 win over Lakeland on a sixth inning forceout.  Alex McRae threw five innings, allowing six hits and a walk, and striking out two.  Edgar Santana followed with four shutout innings, giving up two hits and striking out three.  Kevin Newman went 2-2 with a walk and Kevin Kramer broke out of a slump to go 3-4.  Others:

Connor Joe:  0-4

-- West Virginia edged Lexington, 5-4.  J.T. Brubaker didn't pitch as well as in his first two starts, but went five innings with three runs and eight hits allowed.  He walked none and fanned six.  Ke'Bryan Hayes went 1-4 with his fifth double in his last five games and Alfredo Reyes went 2-3.  Others:

Tito Polo, Casey Hughston, Mitchell Tolman:  all 1-4
Carlos Munoz:  0-2, 2 BB
Seth McGarry:  2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 K
