Cannonballs coming: Indianapolis bullpen wastes Chad Kuhl's gem

West Virginia was rained out.

-- Chad Kuhl threw six shutout innings, but the Indianapolis (11-10) bullpen blew another game, failing to hold a 1-0 ninth inning lead in a 5-1 loss to Norfolk.  Kuhl allowed just two hits and got a dozen groundouts, with no fly outs, while throwing 52 of 81 pitches for strikes.  He walked two and struck out three.  Jorge Rondon and Guido Knudson each threw a scoreless inning, but Trey Haley melted down completely in the ninth.  He walked in the tying run and things went downhill from there.  Others:

Adam Frazier:  1-2, 2 BB
Jung-Ho Kang:  1-4
Max Moroff:  0-2, 2 BB
Cole Figueroa:  0-4
Willy Garcia:  1-2, 2 BB

-- Clay Holmes got battered for seven runs, six of them earned, as Altoona (9-13) lost to Akron, 10-3.  Holmes lasted only two and two-thirds innings, giving up six hits and three walks, while striking out three.  He threw only 37 of 66 pitches for strikes.  The Curve managed only four hits, half of them by Chris Diaz, as all of Altoona's runs scored with the help of errors.  Others:

Erich Weiss:  0-3
Harold Ramirez:  0-3
Barrett Barnes:  0-4
Montana DuRapau:  0.2 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 2 HR

-- Bradenton (10-13) lost to Jupiter, 6-3.  Colten Brewer gave up four runs in the first, two of them earned, but then settled down and followed with four scoreless innings.  Overall he allowed just three hits and a walk, and struck out three.  Kevin Newman, who went 2-5, brought the Marauders within a run with a three-run shot, his first HR of the year.  Edgar Santana, however, gave up his first two runs of the year.  He gave up three hits and a walk in two innings, while striking out two.  Despite getting a dozen hits, Bradenton didn't score again.  Others:

Jordan Luplow:  0-5
Jerrick Suiter:  3-4
Taylor Gushue:  2-4
Connor Joe:  1-3, BB
