Cannonballs coming: Eric Wood homers twice

-- Indianapolis (49-45) had only four hits but shut out Louisville, 4-0.  Trevor Williams had a strong start, going six innings and allowing just three hits and a walk.  He struck out four.  Francisco Cervelli continued his rehab, catching seven innings again and going 2-4 again, this time with a double.

Alen Hanson:  0-4
Max Moroff:  0-3, BB
Jason Rogers:  1-4, 2B

-- Ryan Vogelsong threw six shutout innings in a rehab start as Altoona (52-39) won the first game of its doubleheader with Harrisburg, 5-0.  Vogelsong gave up two hits and two walks, and struck out three.  Stetson Allie hit his eighth HR and Eric Wood (pictured) his twelfth.  Allie finished 3-3 and Wood 1-2 with a walk.

Kevin Newman:  0-3
Erich Weiss:  0-3
Harold Ramirez:  2-3
Edwin Espinal:  1-3, 2B
Reese McGuire:  0-3

The Curve dropped game two, 3-2.  Clay Holmes allowed two runs over five innings on five hits and two walks.  He struck out four.  Wood made things interesting with a two-run HR, his thirteenth, in the bottom of the seventh.  A huge month of July has suddenly made Wood an intriguing player.  Overall, he's hitting 260/337/492 while playing in a home park that isn't kind to right-handed power hitters.  His plate discipline has been very solid, with 29 walks and 48 strikeouts in 277 plate appearances.  And from what I've seen this year, his defense at third has improved markedly.  He'll be 24 at the start of next season, which is OK for a guy first reaching AAA.

Ramirez:  1-3
Espinal:  0-3
McGuire:  2-3, 2B
Weiss:  doubled as PH
