Cannonballs coming: Chad Kuhl pitches well again

Altoona was rained out.

-- Chad Kuhl allowed just a run and two hits over six innings in Indianapolis' (14-12) twelve-inning, 6-1 loss to Louisville.  Kuhl walked one, struck out four, and threw 53 of 78 pitches for strikes.  The only run came on a solo HR.  The Indians' offense, though, could only produce an RBI double by Jacob Stallings.  Three relievers combined for five scoreless innings, but the badly struggling Trey Haley collapsed in the twelfth.  The inning actually started with two infield hits, but Haley fell to pieces after that.  Others:

Alen Hanson:  1-5, 2B
Adam Frazier:  0-5
Cole Figueroa:  2-4
Josh Bell:  0-4
Willy Garcia:  2-4
Max Moroff:  1-1, 2B
Rob Scahill:  IP

-- Yeudy Garcia had another rough outing in Bradenton's (13-15) 3-2 loss to Charlotte.  Garcia lasted only four innings, allowing three runs, two of them unearned, and eight hits.  Garcia's problem doesn't seem to be throwing strikes; in this game, he walked none, struck out six, and threw 57 of 79 pitches for strikes.  Instead, he seems to be having trouble putting hitters away.  Kevin Newman (pictured) was 2-3 with a walk.  He's now hitting .359 with seven walks and just six strikeouts.  Kevin Kramer was 2-5 with his second HR.  He's 10-for-27 (.370) in his last six games.  Others:

Pablo Reyes:  0-4
Taylor Gushue:  1-4
Jordan Luplow:  0-3, BB
Connor Joe:  0-4, 3 K
Edgar Santana:  2 IP, 2 H, 2 K (pitched out of bases-loaded, no-out jam)

-- J.T. Brubaker had gopher ball problems in West Virginia's (16-11) 4-3 loss to Charleston.  Brubaker got through six innings, allowing six hits and three walks, but three longballs accounted for four runs.  Brubaker fanned four.  He's been an extreme flyball pitcher this year and so far has allowed six HRs in 33 IP, so that could be a problem going forward.  Tito Polo went 2-4 with a walk.  Others:

Ke'Bryan Hayes:  1-4
Casey Hughston:  1-4, 2 K
