-P- Indianapolis got blown out by Louisville, 11-3. Frank Duncan, who'd been a revelation in his first couple months in Triple-A, allowed six runs (though only two were earned) in 4.1 innings, striking out three and walking three. Danny Ortiz hit a two-run homer, and Willy Garcia tripled. Josh Bell was back in the Indy lineup, going 0-for-3 with a walk. Austin Meadows remained out.

-P- Altoona lost to Akron, 5-3. Brandon Waddell struggled, walking six batters and striking out three while allowing four runs, three earned, in 4.2 innings. His ERA is now 4.95. Kevin Newman went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk.

-P- Bradenton lost to Charlotte 4-3 in a game that was called early due to weather. Jonathan Brubaker threw all 5.1 innings, striking out four, walking none and allowing a two-run homer. Jordan Luplow had two triples (!), while Kevin Kramer went 2-for-3 with a double. Elias Diaz made his first rehab appearance in his comeback from an elbow injury and went 0-for-2.

-P- West Virginia fell to Greensboro, 5-2. Dario Agrazal had a good start, whiffing three and walking none while allowing two runs in 6.1 innings. The Power managed just six hits, two of them by Christian Kelley.

-P- Morgantown was postponed due to rain.

-P- Bristol lost 7-6 to Pulaski. Nicholas Economos started and pitched four scoreless innings, with most of Pulaski's runs charged to reliever Geoff Hartlieb. Three of those were unearned, and the Bucs were charged with five errors. Huascar Fuentes had two doubles, and Michael De La Cruz and Sam Kennelly each also had two hits.

-P- The GCL Bucs beat the Phillies, 4-2. 2016 second-round pick Travis MacGregor made his pro debut, allowing two hits and a walk but recording all four of his outs via whiffs. Ronny Agustin took over after that and struck out seven batters over 4.2 innings. Henrry Rosario doubled and tripled and is now batting .370.

-P- The DSL Pirates lost to the Cubs, 5-4. Starter Roger Santana allowed two unearned runs over four innings, striking out three and walking one. Seven Pirates notched one hit apiece, with Ramy Perez tripling and Rodolfo Castro doubling.
