Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

-P- Indianapolis shut out Louisville, 6-0. Gerrit Cole struck out six in a three-inning rehab outing, perhaps indicating he's close to returning to big-league form. Justin Masterson also pitched four scoreless innings. Jason Rogers went 2-for-3 with a walk. Josh Bell was 1-for-5. Austin Meadows, who had been absent from Indianapolis' lineup for the past several days, was finally placed on the DL with a hamstring strain.

-P- Bradenton beat Charlotte, 11-5. Yeudy Garcia allowed three runs and two homers over six innings but struck out eight and walked none. Cole Tucker, Tito Polo, Taylor Gushue and Elvis Escobar each had two hits, and Michael Suchy hit his fourth homer of the season.

-P- West Virginia lost 2-1 to Greensboro. Bret Helton struck out seven over six innings while allowing two walks. The Power's offense, however, only got two singles.

-P- Morgantown lost both ends of a doubleheader against Aberdeen, 4-3 and 5-4. In the first game, Danny Beddes allowed one run over five innings, striking out three and walking two. Jordan George went 1-for-2 with a triple and two walks, and Ty Moore went 2-for-3. In the nightcap, Cam Vieaux (3.45) allowed three runs and a homer over five innings, whiffing five, walking two. Sandy Santos (.354) went 3-for-5 with two doubles, and George went 2-for-3 with a walk. Will Craig (.152) went 0-for-2 with two walks.

-P- Bristol lost 6-3 to Pulaski. Ike Schlabach had a good start, allowing one run and no walks while striking out four over six innings; most of Pulaski's runs came against reliever Nick Hutchings. Julio De La Cruz was 2-for-4, and Michael De La Cruz was 1-for-4 with a triple.

-P- The GCL squad lost 5-3 in 12 innings to the Phillies. Argenis Romano allowed three runs over five innings while striking out three and walking one. Yondry Contreras, Johan De Jesus and Nelson Jorge each had two hits, and Jorge tripled.
