-- Indianapolis (48-45) blew a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth and lost to Louisville, 9-8.  Jorge Rondon and Dovydas Neverauskas combined to face five batters without retiring any, leading to three runs.  Starter Wilfredo Boscan got knocked out in the fourth inning and Kyle Lobstein followed with three and a third scoreless frames.  Francisco Cervelli started his rehab, catching seven innings and going 2-4 with a walk.  Pedro Florimon was 2-3 with a double, his third HR, and a walk.

Max Moroff:  1-4, 3B, BB
Jason Rogers:  1-4
Willy Garcia:  0-5
Gift Ngoepe:  2-5, 2B

-- Altoona thrashed Harrisburg, 9-3.  Alex McRae allowed one run over eight innings on eight hits and a walk.  He struck out four.  Harold Ramirez, Reese McGuire and Barrett Barnes each went 2-4.  McGuire and Barnes each had a double and two RBIs.

Kevin Newman:  supposedly 0-4, BB
Erich Weiss:  1-4, 3B, BB
Edwin Espinal:  0-3, BB

-- Bradenton (48-41) beat Dunedin, 10-7.  After getting four hits yesterday, a rehabbing Elias Diaz went 3-4 with a HR, a walk and four RBIs.  Elvis Escobar went 3-4 and Wyatt Mathisen 2-4 with two doubles and three RBIs.  Buddy Borden had a rough start, allowing seven runs in four and a third innings, but Sam Street finished with three scoreless innings.

Tito Polo:  1-4
Cole Tucker:  1-4, 2B, BB

-- Dario Agrazal, Sean Keselica and Yunior Montero combined on a five-hit shutout as West Virginia (46-44) trounced Augusta, 7-0.  Agrazal went seven innings, allowing four of the hits, walking none and fanning four.  Casey Hughston was 2-4 with his sixth HR.  He also struck out twice.  Since hitting .147 in April and May, Hughston has batted .264 with eight extra-base hits in 23 games.  Not exactly inspiring, but a big improvement.  He's continued to strike out at a frightening rate, though, with 32 in 87 ABs over that time, leaving him with a 34% K rate on the season.  Logan Ratledge also went 2-4 with a HR, his second.

Mitchell Tolman:  1-4, 2B
Daniel Arribas:  2-4, 3B
Jordan George:  2-4, 2B (full season debut)

-- The GCL Pirates (8-10) beat the Yankees East, 4-1.  Miguel Hernandez threw five shutout innings, allowing four hits and a walk, and fanning five.  Hernandez wasn't a prominent signee, but he's 6'5" and has reached 93-94.  He's done well through four starts, so he could be interesting.  Raul Hernandez hit his first pro HR.  Melvin Jimenez was 2-4.  He also wasn't a prominent signee, but he was the DSL Pirates' best player last year.  He's been hurt most of this year, but he's gone 7-for-17 so far with no Ks.

Edison Lantigua:  1-4
Victor Ngoepe:  2-4

-- The DSL Pirates (13-22) beat the Cubs1, 5-4.  Samuel Inoa went 2-4 with a double and a triple.
