Cannonballs coming: Tyler Glasnow is good

New, 23 comments

-- Tyler Glasnow had his longest outing of the season, giving up just four singles and a walk over seven shutout innings, as Indianapolis (15-12) beat Louisville, 2-1.  Glasnow fanned 11 and threw 65 of 95 pitches for strikes.  He seems to be making progress in holding runners; the only runner who tried to steal against him was thrown out.  That left opponents with just two steals in six attempts against him and Jacob Stallings, who's been the catcher on all the attempts.  Glasnow didn't figure in the decision, as nobody scored until Cole Figueroa singled in Max Moroff in the bottom of the eighth.  Jorge Rondon failed to hold the lead in the top of the ninth, but Danny Ortiz doubled in Josh Bell in the bottom half to end it.  Others:

Alen Hanson:  0-4
Adam Frazier:  1-4
Bell:  2-4
Jason Rogers:  0-3
Willy Garcia:  1-3
Moroff:  1-2
Figueroa:  1-1

-- Tyler Eppler (pictured) threw a seven-inning complete game as Altoona (13-16) won the first game of its doubleheader with Richmond, 3-1.  Eppler gave up four hits, including a solo HR, while walking one and striking out two.  He needed only 78 pitches, 52 of them strikes.  Only three runners reached scoring position against him.  Others:

Harold Ramirez:  0-1, BB
Erich Weiss:  1-2, 2B, BB
Austin Meadows:  0-1, BB
Reese McGuire:  0-3
Barrett Barnes:  1-3

The Curve got only two hits in game two, but still completed the sweep with a 2-1 win.  Jonathan Schwind hit his first HR since 2014 and Anderson Feliz knocked in the other run with a single.  Cody Dickson got enough of a handle on his control problems to throw five innings, allowing a run on four hits and three walks, and striking out six.  Montana DuRapau walked two and threw only six of 17 pitches for strikes in the seventh, but hung on for the save.  Others:

Weiss:  0-3
Meadows:  0-2, BB
Barnes:  0-1

-- Bradenton (14-15) bombed Charlotte, 9-1.  Chase Simpson, Jerrick Suiter, Logan Hill and Jordan Luplow all went deep, the third HR for Luplow and the first for each of the others.  Starter Austin Coley gave up a run on four hits and a walk, with six strikeouts, over six innings.  Others:

Kevin Newman:  2-5
Kevin Kramer:  2-5
Taylor Gushue:  1-3, BB
Luplow:  1-3, HR (3), BB
Luis Heredia:  IP, 2 H

-- West Virginia (16-12) lost to Hagerstown, 6-5.  The Power took a 4-3 lead into the eighth, but Billy Roth, making his first appearance of the year, gave up two in the top of the eighth and one more in the ninth.  West Virginia rallied for one run in the bottom of the ninth, but left the bases loaded.  Starter Bret Helton had control problems, walking five and lasting only four and two-thirds innings.  He gave up three runs and four hits, while striking out three.  Others:

Mitchell Tolman:  1-3, BB
Casey Hughston:  1-4
Carlos Munoz:  2-4, BB
Seth McGarry:  2.1 IP, 2 H, BB, K
