-- Indianapolis (17-18) lost to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 7-1.  Wilfredo Boscan gave up five runs in six innings on seven hits and a walk.  He struck out two.  The Indians had only five hits.  Josh Bell went 0-3 and is now batting 205/308/227 in May.  Others:

Adam Frazier:  1-4, 2B
Jason Rogers:  1-4
Willy Garcia:  1-4
Gift Ngoepe:  1-2, BB

-- Brandon Waddell had a solid start as Altoona won its 11th straight against Richmond, 6-2.  Waddell opened with five shutout innings, but apparently tired in the sixth and gave up three hits to start the inning.  That brought in two runs and Waddell departed after five and a third, having thrown 89 pitches, 61 for strikes.  He allowed six hits total, walked none and struck out four.  Reese McGuire (pictured) went 3-4 with a walk and Chris Diaz 3-5 with two doubles.  Jose Osuna was 1-4 with three RBIs.  Others:

Austin Meadows:  1-3, 2B, BB
Erich Weiss:  1-5, 2B
Barrett Barnes:  1-4

-- Bradenton beat Palm Beach in 11 innings, 3-2.  Stephen Tarpley had an odd start, going six innings on 73 pitches even though he threw only 38 of them for strikes.  (This is another time when I'm a little skeptical of the pitch counts in the MILB.com box scores.)  Tarpley gave up two runs on just three hits, walked two and struck out five.  Three relievers combined for five scoreless, two-hit innings.  Tomas Morales singled in the 11th to drive in Connor Joe, who'd doubled.  Joe finished 2-4 with a walk.  Logan Hill was 3-5.  Others:

Kevin Kramer:  1-5

-- Mitch Keller had a strong start for West Virginia (18-17), but gave up two solo HRs in a 2-1 loss to Lakewood.  Keller went seven innings and allowed five hits and no walks.  He fanned six and threw 59 of 84 pitches for strikes.  The Power's struggling offense managed eight hits but went 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position.  Others:

Cole Tucker:  1-5
Ke'Bryan Hayes:  0-2, BB
Carlos Munoz:  2-4, 2B
