-- Indianapolis (59-61) edged Buffalo, 3-2.  Starter Kelvin Marte allowed just one run over five innings.  Jose Osuna (pictured) provided all the offense with a three-run HR, his seventh longball since moving up to AAA.  He went 2-4 and is now hitting 289/341/570 for Indianapolis.

Alen Hanson:  2-4
Max Moroff:  2-4
Austin Meadows:  1-3, BB
Josh Bell:  1-4
A.J. Schugel:  2 IP, H, 2 K

-- Altoona (64-52) survived seven (s - e - v - e - n) errors to beat Harrisburg, 8-4.  Everybody in the starting lineup except Jonathan Schwind, including pitcher Alex McRae, had exactly one hit.  The Curve also drew six walks without striking out.  McRae and Jin-De Jhang each had two RBIs.  McRae managed to wade through all the errors to pitch six and two-thirds solid innings, allowing four runs, two earned, on six hits and two walks.  He fanned seven.

Kevin Newman:  1-4
Eric Wood:  1-3

-- Bradenton ((58-56) beat St. Lucie, 10-7.  Jerrick Suiter went 3-4 with a double and two RBIs.  Chase Simpson, Jordan Luplow and Michael Suchy each had two hits.  Starter Austin Coley lasted only an inning and a third, allowing five runs, but Tanner Anderson and Sam Street followed with six and two-thirds scoreless frames.

Cole Tucker:  0-3, BB
Tito Polo:  1-4, BB
Kevin Kramer:  0-5
Connor Joe:  1-4, BB

-- West Virginia (59-57) lost to Delmarva, 5-2.  Gage Hinsz mostly pitched well over five innings, but he gave up a three-run HR in the third, the only damage against him.  He allowed five hits and three walks in all, and fanned six.  The Power had only five hits.  Raul Hernandez, recently promoted from the GCL, caught the game and went 1-4 with a double.  Hernandez has replaced Christian Kelley, who was promoted to Bradenton.  I'm still trying to figure out whether Hernandez is a real prospect; he may be worth keeping an eye on.

-- Morgantown (24-29) beat State College, 8-4, in the completion of yesterday's suspended game.  Danny Beddes had a strong start, allowing just a hit and a walk over six innings.  Unfortunately, the hit was a HR and followed the walk, so he allowed two runs.  The only other baserunner off Beddes came on Will Craig's 14th error.  Craig drew three walks but saw his 17-game hitting streak end as he went 0-2.  Stephen Alemais was 2-4 with a walk and his first pro HR.  Sandy Santos and Ty Moore each went 3-5, Santos with a triple and Moore with his first HR.

The Black Bears lost the regularly scheduled game, 7-4.  Kevin Krause and Santos each went 2-3.  Santos had a double and three RBIs.  Starter Matt Anderson threw three shutout innings, allowing a hit and no walks, and striking out four.  Scooter Hightower, Cristian Mota and Dylan Prohoroff all struggled in relief.

-- Bristol (19-28) got only one hit in a 3-0 loss to Danville.  Mike Wallace gave up the three runs, two earned, in five innings.  Victor Fernandez had the only hit.

-- The GCL Pirates (17-23) got strong performances by two recent draft picks and beat the Braves, 3-1.  Travis MacGregor started and threw three shutout innings, allowing two hits and a walk, with no strikeouts.  Max Kranick followed with five scoreless innings.  He gave up three hits, walked none and struck out three.  Ronny Agustin fanned four in the ninth, with one reaching on a wild pitch.  Sam Kennelly, recently demoted from Bristol, had a two-run HR.

Edison Lantigua:  0-4
Johan De Jesus:  2-4, 2 2B

-- The DSL Pirates (24-34) lost to the Mets1, 10-4.  Starter Yeudry Manzanillo gave up four runs, three earned, in five innings.  Rodolfo Castro had a two-run double.

Kevin Sanchez:  1-4
Sherten Apostel:  0-4, 4 K
Samuel Inoa:  1-3
Larry Alcime:  0-4
