-- Josh Bell, Danny Ortiz and Gift Ngoepe all went deep as Indianapolis (34-30) beat Pawtucket, 6-2.  Bell, who went 2-4, and Ortiz each hit HR #8.  Ngoepe was 2-3 with a double and his third HR.  Frank Duncan gave up just one run in six innings.  He allowed four hits and a walk, and struck out five.  Others:

Alen Hanson:  0-4
Max Moroff:  0-3, BB
Adam Frazier:  0-4
Jason Rogers:  1-4, 2B
Pedro Florimon:  3-4, 2 2B
Justin Masterson:  2 IP, H, ER, BB, K

-- Six different players had at least two hits as Altoona (34-29) hammered New Hampshire, 11-3.  Austin Meadows wasn't one of them, but he had a double in five trips to extend his hitting streak to 22 games.  Erich Weiss was 3-5 with three runs scored.  Eric Wood and Stetson Allie each went 2-4 with HR #6.  Tyler Eppler breezed through four scoreless innings, but gave up three runs, two unearned, in an extended fifth inning.  His pitch count in the inning got to 33 with two outs and he was removed.  Eppler gave up six hits and a walk, and struck out three.  Others:

Harold Ramirez:  2-5, 2B
Reese McGuire:  2-5, 2B
Barrett Barnes:  1-4, 2B
Jared Lakind:  2.1 IP, 2 K

-- Kevin Newman returned to action for Bradenton, as his orbital bone injury evidently wasn't as serious as first thought.  (It was downgraded from "discomfort" to "vexation.")  Wyatt Mathisen, who'd been out since spring with a sore shoulder, was also added to the Marauders' roster, although he didn't play today.  With Cole Tucker, Kevin Kramer, Pablo Reyes and Connor Joe already in the infield, it seems very likely that Newman, at least, will move up to Altoona in the near term once it's clear he's recovered.

In the game, the Marauders lost to Clearwater, 2-1.  Newman was 1-4 and Jordan Luplow 2-4.  Starter Austin Coley gave up eight hits and two runs in five and a third innings.  Others:

Kramer:  0-3
Joe:  1-4, 2B

-- West Virginia (33-31) beat Lexington, 7-3.  Gage Hinsz fanned nine in six innings, but he also got hit around a little, giving up three runs on eight hits.  He walked none and hit two, and threw 58 of 84 pitches for strikes.  Tyler Filliben was the only Power hitter with two hits.  Others:

Tito Polo:  0-2, 2 HBP
Mitchell Tolman:  1-3, 2B, 2 BB
Daniel Arribas:  0-5, 3 K
Carlos Munoz:  1-4, 2B
Logan Hill:  0-3, 3 K (now batting .125 with 36 K in 80 AB since demotion)

-- Three pitchers combined on a three-hit shutout as the DSL Pirates (3-6) beat the Indians, 2-0.  Starter Leandro Pina went five, allowing three hits and no walks, and striking out two.  Rodolfo Castro was 2-4 with a double and a triple.  Others:

Kevin Sanchez:
