Altoona, West Virginia and Morgantown were all off.

-- Alen Hanson (pictured) hit a walkoff grand slam to give Indianapolis (61-62) a 5-2 win over Louisville.  The Indians trailed 2-0 going into the ninth, but loaded the bases with one out.  Dan Gamache drove in a run with a single, then Hanson, batting left-handed, hit his seventh HR to the opposite field.  Hanson also had a single and a double in five ABs.  Trevor Williams gave up two runs on seven hits and a walk in five innings.  He struck out four.

Austin Meadows:  0-4, 3 K
Jose Osuna:  1-4

-- Bristol (21-30) beat Pulaski, 1-0.  Adam Oller threw five shutout innings, giving up just two hits and a walk, and striking out three.  Three relievers managed to throw four scoreless innings despite walking six.  The only run scored on a double by Jhoan Herrera.

-- The GCL Pirates (18-25) beat the Yankees East, 5-2.  Jacob Taylor made his second outing since returning from Tommy John surgery.  He failed to retire anybody in the first one.  This outing started off with a walk and a HR, but went better after that.  Taylor ended up going two and two-thirds innings, allowing two runs, two hits and two walks, and striking out four.  Lefty Hector Garcia made his first appearance following TJ, throwing a scoreless inning with one hit, one walk and two strikeouts.  Yet another TJ survivor, Eduardo Vera, threw two scoreless innings for the save in his third game back.  Yondry Contreras went 2-4 with a double.
