Trey Haley:  IP, 2 BB
Rob Scahill:  IP, 4 H, 2 ER, BB
Justin Masterson:  IP, 2 H

-- Altoona (42-32) dropped Bowie, 5-2.  Alex McRae got bombed in his first two AA starts, but pitched decently in his third and, in this one, allowed only two runs and four hits over seven innings.  He walked none and struck out five.  Edwin Espinal was 2-4 with his fifth HR, a three-run shot.  Eric Wood added his ninth HR.  Others:

Kevin Newman:  1-5

-- Bradenton's (40-31) game with Fort Myers was suspended in the fourth inning with the Marauders down, 4-0.

-- West Virginia (37-36) beat Asheville, 6-3.  Gage Hinsz had a rough first inning, but recovered to last five.  He gave up three runs in all, on seven hits and a walk.  He struck out two.  Carlos Munoz was 2-4 with his fourth HR and Alfredo Reyes 3-4 with his third HR and three RBIs.  Others:

-- Morgantown (6-4) lost its fourth straight, 3-1, to State College.  Luis Escobar gave up all three runs in the first inning, recording only two outs before exiting and throwing only ten of 30 pitches for strikes.  Escobar had several first-inning meltdowns amidst an otherwise strong season last year, so this is nothing new.  Brandon Bingel, Scooter Hightower and Julio Vivas combined for eight and a third scoreless innings in relief.  Others:

Will Craig:  0-3, BB
Kevin Krause:  2-4

-- Bristol (3-1) won in dramatic fashion, 6-5, over Greenville in ten innings.  The Pirates trailed, 5-2, in the ninth, but tied it on a double by Raul Siri, a passed ball and a sacrifice fly.  They won it in the bottom of the tenth on a sacrifice fly by Adrian Valerio (pictured).  Fifth round draft pick Blake Cederlind had a rough debut, allowing four runs, three earned, in three innings.  He gave up five hits, two of them HRs, walked none and struck out one.  Robbie Coursel, Pasquale Mazzocoli and Jordan Jess also made their pro debuts.  Mazzocoli struck out the side in his one inning.  Coursel also threw a scoreless inning and Jess threw two to get the win.  Victor Fernandez was 3-5 with a walk and Valerio 3-5 with three RBIs.  Others:

Jhoan Herrera:  2-5, 2B
Garrett Brown:  2-4, BB
