Cannonballs coming: Sandy Santos gets four hits

Bradenton is off again due to the All-Star break and the DSL doesn't play on Sundays.

-- Austin Meadows extended his hitting streak to 26 games with his first AAA HR as Indianapolis (38-31) beat Charlotte, 6-3.  Meadows finished 1-5.  Josh Bell went 2-3 with a walk and is now hitting 361/439/653 in June.  Frank Duncan pitched well for six innings before running into some trouble in the seventh.  He finished with three runs allowed in six and two-thirds innings.  He allowed nine hits, walked none and struck out four.  Others:

Adam Frazier:  1-5
Max Moroff:  1-2, 2B, 2 BB
Trey Haley:  2.1 IP, 2 K, Sv

-- Altoona (37-31) edged Hartford, 3-2.  Tyler Eppler went six innings, allowing a run on five hits and three walks.  He struck out three.  Montana DuRapau almost blew a 3-1 lead in the ninth, but managed to get a popup with runners on second and third with one out.  Jared Lakind then came on and issued a walk before getting a strikeout to end the game.  Edwin Espinal went 3-4 and is now hitting .319.  Others:

Kevin Newman:  0-4
Harold Ramirez:  1-4, 2B

-- West Virginia (35-34) lost to Charleston, 5-1.  The Power have played without their only two real hitting prospects -- Tito Polo and Ke'Bryan Hayes -- a number of times lately and did so again today.  They had only five hits, with Ryan Nagle going 2-2 with two doubles and a walk.  Gage Hinsz gave up two runs on eight hits and three walks in five innings.  He struck out two.  Others:

Daniel Arribas:  0-3, BB, 3 K
Carlos Munoz:  1-4, 2B
Daniel Zamora:  IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, K

-- Morgantown (3-0) pummeled Batavia, 12-2.  The Black Bears took advantage of the wildness of the opposing pitchers.  Not only did they draw nine walks (with just one strikeout), the two top college draftees on the team got hit with five pitches in all.  Stephen Alemais, who went 2-3, got hit twice and Will Craig, who went 0-3, got hit three times.  Sandy Santos went 4-4 with a walk and four runs scored.  He's now 8-for-11 on the season.  Cam Vieaux struggled a little in his first pro start, giving up two runs on three hits and two walks in two and two-thirds innings.  He struck out one.  Neil Kozikowski (pictured) and 15th-round draft pick Danny Beddes combined for five and a third hitless innings in relief, with one walk and six strikeouts.  Others:

Albert Baur:  1-2, BB, 3 RBI
Jordan George:  2-3, 2B, 3 BB
Matt Diorio:  2-4, 2 BB
Arden Pabst:  3-4, BB
