Cannonballs coming: Meadows, Newman promoted

The big news in the Pirates' system is that Austin Meadows has been promoted to Indianapolis and Kevin Newman to Altoona.

Bradenton was off.

-- Tyler Glasnow allowed no hits for the second time in four starts, but again undermined himself with wildness.  He lasted six innings against Charlotte, but threw only 51 of 97 pitches for strikes.  He finished with six walks and six strikeouts.  Glasnow left with the game scoreless, but the Indianapolis (36-31) bullpen lost it, 4-0.  The Indians were shut down by Anthony Ranaudo, managing only six hits.  Others:

Max Moroff:  0-3, BB
Adam Frazier:  1-2, 2 BB
Josh Bell:  0-4
Cole Figueroa:  1-4
Willy Garcia:  0-4
Alen Hanson:  2-3

-- With Meadows gone, Altoona (35-31) lost a 3-2 game to Hartford.  Starter Cody Dickson allowed three runs on seven hits and five walks in five and a third innings.  He struck out five and threw only 55 of 97 pitches for strikes.  Jose Osuna entered the game halfway through and had two RBI singles in two ABs, accounting for the Curve's offense.  Others:

Harold Ramirez:  1-4
Reese McGuire:  0-4
Barrett Barnes:  1-3, 3B, BB
Edgar Santana:  2.2 IP, 3 K (bailed Dickson out of bases-loaded, one-out jam)
Jared Lakind:  2 IP, H, BB

-- West Virginia (34-33) lost to Charleston, 2-1.  Logan Sendelbach gave up the two runs on three hits and three walks in five innings.  He struck out five.  Christian Kelly was 2-3.  Others:

Tito Polo:  0-5, 3 K
Mitchell Tolman:  1-4
Ke'Bryan Hayes:  1-4, 3 K

-- Morgantown (1-0) won its opener, 5-4, in 11 innings.  Sandy Santos (pictured) was 3-5 with two doubles and a walk.  He drove in the winner with a two-out double in the top of the 11th.  Will Craig went 1-4 with two strikeouts in his pro debut.  Kevin Krause was 1-5 in his first game after missing a season and a half following Tommy John surgery.  Starter Stephan Meyer gave up three runs, two earned, on six hits and a walk in five innings.  He fanned six.  Black Bears' pitchers struck out 14 on the day.

-- The DSL Pirates (3-9) lost to the Rangers1, 6-3.  Starter Roger Santana struck out seven over four and two-thirds innings, but he also allowed nine hits, while walking none.  That led to four runs, all of them unearned.  Rodolfo Castro was 3-4 with a double and a walk.  Others:

Sherton Apostel:  1-3, 2 BB
Larry Alcime:  0-3
