Cannonballs Coming: Shutout ball by Gage Hinsz

New, 168 comments

Indianapolis and Altoona remained off for All Star stuff.  Bradenton and Bristol were also off.

-- Gage Hinsz (pictured) threw seven shutout innings as West Virginia (44-44) edged Augusta, 1-0.  Hinsz allowed six hits, walked none and struck out two.  He threw 55 of 77 pitches for strikes.  The game's only run scored when Casey Hughston led off the bottom of the first with a triple and scored on a fly ball by Mitchell Tolman.

Hughston:  1-3
Tolman:  0-2

-- Morgantown (11-14) also picked up a 1-0 win, this one over Hudson Valley.  Matt Anderson, Luis Escobar, Matt Frawley and Cristian Mota combined on a seven-hit shutout.  Anderson allowed three hits, walked none and fanned five over his three innings.  Frawley and Mota struck out five over three innings of relief.  Will Craig's difficult debut continued, as he went 0-4, dropping his average to .164.  The Black Bears had seven walks but only four hits.

Stephen Alemais:  1-3, 2B
Sandy Santos:  1-4, BB

-- The GCL Pirates lost to the Tigers East, 15-11, on a walkoff grand slam in the ninth.  Brian Sousa had a rough start, giving up six runs, four earned, on seven hits in four innings.  He walked two and struck out four.  Henrry Rosario, an overage outfielder who's played three years in the GCL and one higher up at Bristol, continued to provide a lot of the offense for the Pirates, going 2-5 with his fourth HR.  His presence seems to reflect the Pirates' shortage of players for their GCL entry.  Edison Lantigua was 2-4 with a walk, and is now hitting .310.  Andrew Walker and Nelson Jorge each went 2-3.

Yondry Contreras:  1-5, 3 K
Alex Martinez:  4 IP, 4 H, 4 K

-- The DSL Pirates (11-22) lost to the Yankees1, 6-5.  Adonis Pichardo started and allowed two runs on nine hits over five innings.  He walked none and fanned three.  Kevin Sanchez was 2-4 with a double.

Sherten Apostel:  1-1, BB
Rodolfo Castro:  0-4, BB
Christopher Perez:  1-5, 2B
