Cannonballs coming: Yeudy Garcia dominates

-- Buffalo shut out Indianapolis (40-35) for the second day in a row, 4-0.  Steven Brault struggled in his return to the Indians, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks in three and a third innings.  Brault struck out three and two of the runs were unearned.  Indy had six hits.  Others:

Alen Hanson:  0-4
Max Moroff:  0-3, BB
Josh Bell:  2-4
Jason Rogers:  0-3
Austin Meadows:  1-3, 2B

-- Altoona (41-32) lost to Bowie, 4-1.  Tyler Eppler had a rough first inning, allowing four runs against a remarkably old team.  (Bowie had as many thirty-year-old hitters -- two -- as it did hitters under 26, and four of its hitters had significant major league experience.)  Eppler ended up going six and a third innings without allowing any more runs.  He gave up 11 hits, walked none and struck out three.  Others:

Kevin Newman:  2-4 (batting .333 in AA)
Erich Weiss, Harold Ramirez, Reese McGuire:  all 1-4

-- Bradenton (40-31) took the first game of a doubleheader from Charlotte, 3-1, behind a strong effort from Stephen Tarpley.  He gave up a run on just two hits in six innings.  Tarpley walked three, struck out five and threw 51 of 83 pitches for strikes.  The offense came on longballs.  Elvis Escobar, who also had a double in three ABs, hit his third HR of the year.  Wyatt Mathisen hit his first, a two-run shot that broke a 1-1 tie in the seventh.  Others:

Cole Tucker:  0-4
Tito Polo:  0-3
Kevin Kramer:  2-3, 2B

The Marauders completed the sweep, 4-1, as Yeudy Garcia (pictured) had the kind of start in game two that the Pirates no doubt have been waiting for all season.  Garcia threw a seven-inning complete game, giving up just four hits and a walk, and fanning nine.  The one run was unearned.  Garcia threw 56 of 84 pitches for strikes.  Bradenton had only four hits, but three of them came in the third, when the Marauders scored all their runs.  The first came when Jeff Roy stole home.  The last three scored on Chase Simpson's sixth HR.  Others:

Polo:  1-4
Kramer:  0-3
Jordan Luplow:  0-3
Connor Joe:  1-3

-- West Virginia (36-36) gave up seven runs late in an 8-4 loss to Asheville.  Starter Bret Helton gave up four runs in six and a third innings and Daniel Zamora gave up another four in an inning and two-thirds.  Others:

Mitchell Tolman:  0-5
Ke'Bryan Hayes:  1-4, 2B
Ryan Nagle:  2-3

-- Morgantown (6-3) lost its third straight, 5-2, to State College.  Starter Matt Anderson gave up two runs in an inning and two-thirds and then came out.  He'd only thrown 26 pitches, so he apparently is on a very limited pitch count.  Dylan Prohoroff and Matt Frawley each threw two shutout innings in their second pro outings.  Others:

Sandy Santos:  1-4
Ty Moore:  3-4
Will Craig:  0-3, BB

-- Bristol (2-1) destroyed Bluefield, 14-3.  Victor Fernandez was 4-5 with a double, triple, walk, four runs and three RBIs.  Adrian Valerio was 3-5 with two doubles and three RBIs.  Ike Schlabach went five innings, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk.  He didn't strike out anybody.  Others:

Raul Siri:  0-5
Julio De La Cruz:  1-4, 2B, BB
Jhoan Herrera:  2-3, 2 2B, 2 BB
Michael De La Cruz:  1-5

-- The GCL Pirates (1-0) had their game against the Tigers East suspended due to rain with the score tied, 2-2, in the eighth.

-- The DSL Pirates (7-12) beat the Indians, 3-2, in walkoff fashion.  With the score 2-1 in the ninth and two out, Kevin Sanchez singled, Rodolfo Castro doubled him home, and Sherten Apostel singled to drive in Castro.  Sanchez finished 3-5 and Apostel 2-3 with a double and two walks.  Leandro Pina gave up two unearned runs on four hits over five innings.  He walked none and struck out five.  Others:

Christopher Perez:  2-2, 2B
Larry Alcime:  0-4 (batting .050)
