Cannonballs coming: Huge day for Alen Hanson

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

-P- Indianapolis split a doubleheader against Columbus, winning the first game 14-4 and losing the second 8-2. In the first game, Alen Hanson (.267) went 4-for-5, Willy Garcia homered and doubled, Gift Ngoepe had two doubles, and Jin-De Jhang, Max Moroff, Jason Rogers, Dan Gamache and Jose Osuna also had multi-hit games. Frank Duncan had a solid start, allowing one run over five innings while striking out three and walking none. In the second game, new addition Josh Outman started and allowed seven runs over three innings. Hanson went 3-for-4 with a double, completing a remarkable day for him, and Jacob Stallings homered.

-P- Altoona blew out Erie, 8-0. Brandon Waddell pitched six shutout innings and struck out six, although he walked four. Eric Wood homered, Edwin Espinal had two doubles, and Kevin Newman (.354), Harold Ramirez, Barrett Barnes and Chris Diaz joined Wood and Espinal with two hits apiece.

-P- Bradenton beat Brevard County 2-1 in 13 innings. The Marauders struck out 17 times, with 12 of those whiffs coming against opposing starter Cody Ponce. Jonathan Brubaker allowed one run over seven innings, though, and Sam Street and Henry Hirsch combined for six innings of scoreless relief. Elvis Escobar went 3-for-4.

-P- West Virginia lost both ends of a doubleheader against Lakewood, 4-0 and 2-1. In the first game, Logan Sendelbach pitched a six-inning complete game but allowed four runs and struck out two, while the Power offense managed just one hit. (The Power offense not hitting much has been a recurring theme lately.) The team's hitting struggles continued into the second game, which lasted 12 innings. Dario Agrazal allowed one run over six frames, striking out three and walking one.

-P- Morgantown lost to Tri-City, 4-3. James Marvel seemingly got back on track after a poor start last week, allowing one run and one walk while striking out five in four innings. Will Craig went 2-for-5 to raise his average to .169.

-P- Bristol lost to Princeton, 5-4. Starter Nestor Oronel allowed four runs, three earned, over four innings, although he whiffed five and walked one. Jhoan Herrera (.352) went 3-for-4 with a double, and Michael De La Cruz, Adrian Valerio and Raul Siri each had two hits.

-P- The GCL Pirates beat the Braves in 10 innings, 5-1. Travis MacGregor made his second pro appearance, allowing one unearned run while striking out one and walking one over three innings. Ronny Agustin (0.66) followed with three scoreless frames. First baseman Mikell Granberry had three hits, including a double.

-P- The DSL Bucs lost to the Rangers, 1-0. Roger Santana (1.42) pitched five scoreless innings, striking out four and walking two. Second baseman Cristopher Perez had two hits, including a double.
