Cannonballs coming: Meadows, Hanson go deep

Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

West Virginia and the DSL Pirates were off.

-- Indianapolis (29-26) won the first game of its doubleheader with Toledo, 7-5.  Chad Kuhl had an abbreviated start after running into trouble in the fourth inning.  He struck out the first two hitters, but then allowed a single, walk and HR.  Another single and walk ran his pitch count for the inning to 29 and ended his day.  He went three and two-thirds, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks, while striking out five.  Dan Gamache went 3-4 with a double and his second HR.  Alen Hanson was 2-4 with his fourth HR.  Others:

Max Moroff:  1-3, BB
Adam Frazier:  2-4, 2B
Josh Bell:  1-4
Willy Garcia:  3-4

Indy lost game two, 4-3, on a walkoff single by Casey McGehee in the seventh inning.  Kyle Lobstein started and went three innings, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks.  He fanned four and threw only 38 of 66 pitches for strikes.  Justin Masterson pitched an inning and a third in relief and also had trouble throwing strikes, just 12 in 26 pitches.  He wasn't charged with any runs, but let an inherited runner score.  Masterson allowed one hit, walked two and struck out none.  Frazier went 3-4 with a double and Danny Ortiz 2-2 with a double and a walk.  Others:

Hanson:  0-4
Moroff:  1-4
Bell:  0-3, BB
Jason Rogers:  1-4
Garcia:  1-4
Gift Ngoepe:  1-2, 2B, BB

-- Altoona (31-24) lost to Binghamton, 4-3.  Frank Duncan, making his first start since returning from AAA, was done in by one bad inning.  He went six, but gave up all of Binghamton's runs in the fourth.  Duncan allowed seven hits and a walk, and struck out four.  Altoona had a chance to tie the game after trailing 4-2 going into the ninth.  Austin Meadows, who went 1-4, led off with his second HR and Barrett Barnes walked.  After a sacrifice, Edwin Espinal fanned and Stetson Allie got called out on a pitch that was low and well outside.  Others:

Harold Ramirez:  1-4
Reese McGuire:  1-3, 2B
Espinal:  2-4, 2B
Allie:  2-4
Dovydas Neverauskas:  IP, 2 K

-- Bradenton (32-24) beat Lakeland, 6-3.  Kevin Kramer went 3-5 with a double and three RBIs.  Starter Alex McRae gave up three runs on five hits and three walks in six-plus innings.  He struck out five.  Others:

Cole Tucker:  1-4, BB
Jordan Luplow:  2-5, 2B
Connor Joe:  0-5
