Cannonballs coming: Ke'Bryan Hayes continues strong start

Indianapolis was off.

-- Clay Holmes struggled again in Altoona's (11-16) 5-2 loss to Erie.  Holmes took 92 pitches to get through four and two-thirds innings.  He allowed four runs, two of them earned, on five hits and three walks while striking out three.  Altoona's runs came on solo HRs, Erich Weiss' third and Jin-De Jhang's first.  Weiss was 2-4 overall and Jhang 2-3.  Others:

Austin Meadows:  1-4
Harold Ramirez:  0-3
Barrett Barnes:  0-3

-- Bradenton (13-14) overcame an early 3-0 deficit to beat Charlotte in ten innings, 4-3.  The winning run scored on a wild pitch.  Kevin Kramer and Kevin Newman each went 2-5.  Jordan Luplow was 2-4 with his second HR.  Starter Colten Brewer lasted only two and two-thirds, allowing three runs, two earned, on four hits and two walks.  He struck out three.  Three relievers combined for seven and a third scoreless innings.  Tate Scioneaux made his high A debut, going two innings while allowing a hit and striking out one.  Others:

Pablo Reyes:  0-2, 3 BB
Taylor Gushue:  0-4
Connor Joe:  1-4
Jose Regalado:  2.1 IP, H, 4 K
Luis Heredia:  IP, H, BB, W

-- West Virginia (16-10) lost to Charleston, 8-3.  Logan Sendelbach, who had been pitching very well, got lit up by one of the league's weakest-hitting teams for seven runs in two and a third innings.  Ke'Bryan Hayes went 2-4 with his third HR.  The biggest question about Hayes coming into the season was his ability to hit for power, but he's now slugging .512 as a 19-year-old in full season ball.  Others:

Tito Polo:  1-5, HR (2), 3 K
Mitchell Tolman:  1-3, BB
Casey Hughston:  1-3, BB
Carlos Munoz:  0-4
Daniel Zamora:  3.1 IP, 3 H, 3 K
