New, 90 comments

-- Indianapolis (15-14) wasted another strong start in a 3-1 loss to Syracuse.  Wilfredo Boscan gave up a run on four hits over six innings.  He walked none and struck out four.  The Indians had plenty of opportunities, but went 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position.  The one exception was a Max Moroff pop fly that the shortstop and centerfielder let drop between them.  Cory Luebke failed to get through an inning, giving up a run on a hit and a walk while recording two outs, both via strikeout.  Others:

Alen Hanson:  0-5 (5 hits in last 44 AB)
Adam Frazier:  2-5
Josh Bell:  2-3
Jason Rogers:  1-4
Cole Figueroa:  0-4
Moroff:  2-4

-- Brandon Waddell had little trouble with a weak Trenton lineup in a 5-1 Altoona (15-17) win.  Waddell allowed just three singles -- one a bunt and the other two ground balls -- and two walks over seven innings.  He struck out five and threw 49 of 80 pitches for strikes, and got 11 outs on the ground vs. two in the air.  The one run came on a bunt single, a groundball single, a wild pitch and a ground out.  Edgar Santana made his AA debut, pitching the last two innings to pick up the save.  He walked one and struck out one.  Anderson Feliz went 4-5 with two doubles and a triple.  Austin Meadows continued to struggle, going 0-4 with a sacrifice fly and two strikeouts.  One came on a pitch in the dirt with runners on second and third and no outs.  Others:

Harold Ramirez:  2-4, BB
Jose Osuna:  2-4, 2B
Jin-De Jhang:  3-4

-- Stephen Tarpley (pictured) made his season debut, going four innings in Bradenton's (15-16) 6-2 win over Fort Myers.  Tarpley gave up two runs, one earned, on two hits.  His outing was probably shortened by a 29-pitch second inning that included two walks.  He struck out three and threw 67 pitches total, 40 for strikes.  Michael Suchy drove in the Marauders' first four runs with an RBI single and a three-run HR, his first longball of the season.  Others:

Kevin Newman:  0-4, BB
Kevin Kramer:  3-5
Jordan Luplow:  2-5
Connor Joe:  1-4
Luis Heredia:  IP, BB, K

-- Alfredo Reyes hit a walkoff single in the ninth to give West Virginia (18-13) a 4-3 win over Hagerstown.  Logan Sendelbach gave up a run on four hits over six innings against a good lineup.  He walked one and fanned six.  The Power got its first three runs on a bases-loaded double by Christian Kelley.  Cole Tucker went 1-4 and committed an error that led to a 3-3 tie.  Others:

Ke'Bryan Hayes:  0-3
Casey Hughston:  0-4, 3 K
Carlos Munoz:  1-4
Billy Roth:  3 IP, 2 H, 2 R, ER, 2 BB, K
