Cannonballs coming: Gerrit Cole makes another strong rehab start

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

-P- Indianapolis lost to Columbus, 2-1. Gerrit Cole made another great rehab start, going five innings and allowing just two hits and no walks while striking out six. It certainly looks like he's ready to return. Steven Brault finished out the game and took the loss, allowing two runs over 3.1 innings, although he also struck out six and walked just one. Danny Ortiz got three of Indianapolis' seven hits. (Also, Indy reliever Dovydas Neverauskas pitched a scoreless inning in the Futures Game.)

-P- Altoona won 7-3 against Erie. Ryan Vogelsong made a rehab start and allowed three runs over five innings, striking out one and walking none. Eric Wood and Erich Weiss both homered. Reese McGuire (.251) went 3-for-4 with a double and a bases-loaded walk. Harold Ramirez (.304) went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk. Kevin Newman (.333) went 0-for-5.

-P- Bradenton beat Brevard County 6-5 in 11 innings. Yeudy Garcia (2.56) allowed three runs over 4.1 frames, striking out three and walking two. Tito Polo, Jerrick Suiter and Connor Joe each had two hits, and Elvis Escobar went 1-for-3 with two walks. Elias Diaz went 1-for-3 with a walk.

-P- West Virginia beat Lakewood, 4-1. Bret Helton pitched 6.2 innings, allowing one run while striking out four and walking two. 2015 third-round pick Casey Hughston went 2-for-3 with a walk, two stolen bases, and his fifth homer of the season, raising his meager average for the year to .187. Carlos Munoz also had two hits. Ke'Bryan Hayes went 0-for-4 with a walk.

-P- Morgantown lost to Tri-City, 5-3. Danny Beddes went 3.1 innings and gave up a grand slam to Spencer Johnson. Clark Eagan (.229) went 1-for-4 with a triple. Will Craig (.167) went 0-for-1 with a walk before being replaced by a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning.

-P- Bristol got blown out by Princeton, 13-4. Nicholas Economos pitched five innings and allowed six runs (four earned), and Geoff Hartlieb gave up six runs (five earned) in relief. The Bucs were tagged with five errors. Offensively, Adrian Valerio (.323) went 3-for-5 with a double, and Garrett Brown and Alexis Bastardo each had two hits.

-P- The GCL and DSL teams were off.
