Cannonballs coming: Four hits for Tucker, Tolman

-- Tyler Glasnow stayed true to form in Indianapolis' (41-36) 8-2 win over Gwinnett.  Glasnow gave up two runs on four hits and four walks in six innings.  He struck out five and threw 52 of 96 pitches for strikes.  Austin Meadows went 3-4 with a double and a triple.  Oddly, he was removed in a double switch that cost him one last chance to hit for the cycle.  Max Moroff also went 3-4 with a double, a walk and his seventh HR.  Moroff is batting only .248, but he has a solid OPS of .787, thanks to an OBP of .380 and a slugging average of .407.  Others:

Gift Ngoepe:  2-5
Josh Bell:  1-5
Jason Rogers:  1-5, 2B
Willy Garcia:  1-4
Jacob Stallings:  2-4
Dovydas Neverauskas:  IP

-- Altoona (42-33) lost to Binghamton, 3-2, despite a strong start by Clay Holmes.  Holmes gave up a run on just two hits and two walks in six innings, while fanning six.  He left with a 2-1 lead, but Miguel Rosario couldn't hold it.  The Curve had only six hits, with Erich Weiss going 2-4.  Others:

Kevin Newman:  1-4
Harold Ramirez:  0-4
Reese McGuire:  1-3, BB

-- Bradenton (41-31) survived a very Pirate-like bullpen meltdown to edge Fort Myers, 11-10.  The Marauders' starter was the newly reacquired Buddy Borden, whom the Pirates traded for Sean Rodriguez prior to the 2015 season.  They needed a starter for Bradenton after placing Colten Brewer on the temporarily inactive list.  Borden had been struggling in relief for the Rays in AA and was released, seemingly rather hastily, a couple weeks ago.  In this game, Borden gave up an unearned run on two hits and a walk in three and two-thirds innings.  He struck out three.  Tate Scioneaux and Henry Hirsch both struggled badly in relief, though, with Scioneaux giving up five runs in one inning and Hirsch another four in an inning and a third.  Cole Tucker went 4-5 and Michael Suchy 3-4 with a double, a walk, his third HR, and four RBIs.  Others:

Kevin Kramer:  1-3, 2 BB
Jordan Lupow:  2-4, 2 2B, 3 RBI
Luis Heredia:  0.2 IP, H, Sv

-- Mitch Keller exited after being hit on the left knee by a grounder in West Virginia's (37-37) 13-6 loss to Lexington.  Keller wasn't helped off the field and wasn't limping, so hopefully it's nothing serious.  Keller was having control problems, something that's been rare this year, before the injury.  He threw only 32 of 55 pitches for strikes, walking two and striking out three in two and two-thirds innings.  He gave up four hits and three runs.  Other than one inning in the SAL All-Star game, this was Keller's first outing in nearly two weeks, so there may have been some rustiness at play.  Tanner Anderson followed and got torched for seven runs in one inning.  Mitchell Tolman went 4-4 with his fourth HR.  Others:

Ke'Bryan Hayes:  0-5
Carlos Munoz:  0-3, 2 BB
Daniel Arribas:  2-5, 2B
Christian Kelley:  2-3, 2B, BB

UPDATE:  Keller is not hurt.

-- Morgantown (6-5) lost its fifth straight, 6-1, to State College.  Stephan Meyer had a rough start, giving up four runs, three earned, and four walks in three and a third innings.  Hunter Owen went 3-3.  Others:

Kevin Krause:  1-2, 2 BB

-- Bristol (4-1) beat Greeneville, 8-3.  Adam Oller and Matt Eckelman had scoreless debuts.  Oller went three innings, giving up a hit and no walks, and striking out four.  Eckelman threw two innings, giving up a hit and no walks, and striking out two.  The Pirates had only six hits, but had help from seven walks and two hit batsmen.  Adrian Valerio continued his good start, going 2-4 with a double and three RBIs.  Others:

Raul Siri:  1-4, BB
Jhoan Herrera:  1-4, 2B, BB
Michael De La Cruz:  1-2, 2 BB
Garrett Brown:  1-3, 2B, BB
John Pomeroy:  IP, 2 H, 2 ER, BB

-- The GCL Pirates (1-1) failed to hold a three-run lead in the last two innings and took an 8-7 loss to the Braves.  Starter Domingo Robles had one rough inning, giving up four runs in the second, but otherwise pitched scorelessly over five innings.  He gave up six hits in all, with one walk and two strikeouts.  Edison Lantigua (pictured) went 3-5 with a double and a triple.  Lantigua was the Pirates' top Latin American signing three years ago, but was hampered by injuries last year in the GCL.  He's off to a 6-for-12 start with three extra base hits, hopefully a sign that his problems last year were indeed health-related.  Henrry Rosario homered.  Others:

Johan De Jesus:  1-5, 3B
Raul Hernandez:  1-3, BB
Yondry Contreras:  1-3, 2B, BB

-- The DSL Pirates (7-13) lost to the Indians, 4-3.  Oliver Garcia gave up one run on three hits in four innings of relief.  He walked none and struck out three.  Others:

Kevin Sanchez:  0-2
Rodolfo Castro:  1-3, BB
Sherten Apostel:  1-4
Gabriel Brito:  1-4, 2B
Larry Alcime:  1-4
