Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Bristol was off, and West Virginia and Morgantown were rained out.

-- Frank Duncan threw six shutout innings, but Indianapolis' (63-63) offensive futility continued in a 4-1, ten-inning loss to Louisville.  Duncan lowered his ERA in AAA to 2.06 while allowing five hits and a walk, and striking out seven.  The game was scoreless after regulation, but Curtis Partch and Jorge Rondon gave up four runs in the tenth, and the Indians could come back with only one.

Alen Hanson:  1-5
Max Moroff:  1-4, BB
Jose Osuna:  1-4, BB
Josh Bell:  1-5, 2B
Dovydas Neverauskas:  IP, 2 H

-- Altoona (67-54) lost the first game of its doubleheader with Portland, 4-3.  Clay Holmes gave up four runs, three earned, in five innings.  He allowed six hits and two walks, and struck out four.  It took him 98 pitches to get through five.  The Curve offense had a bizarre day, getting seven hits and ten walks in seven innings, and even going a solid 4-for-13 with RISP, but they managed only three runs and stranded a dozen.  Kevin Newman was 3-4.  Chris Stewart went 0-3 with a walk, and committed a passed ball and an error on the same play to let a run score.

Barrett Barnes:  1-3, 2B, BB
Eric Wood:  1-2, 2 BB

The Curve took the second game, 7-4, on a sixth-inning grand slam by Jonathan Schwind, his third HR of the year.  Alex McRae threw a complete game.  He gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk, but got through seven innings on just 86 pitches.  McRae fanned eight.  Newman hit his second HR.

Wood:  1-3, 2B, BB
Jin-De Jhang:  2-4
Barnes:  1-3

-- Nick Kingham made his first rehab start after moving up to the Florida State League, going five innings as Bradenton (62-58) got a 1-0 win in the first game of its doubleheader with Palm Beach.  Kingham allowed three hits and no walks, struck out three, and needed only 58 pitches.  Jerrick Suiter and Connor Joe each went 2-3.

Cole Tucker:  0-4, 2 K
Tito Polo:  0-4
Jordan Luplow:  1-2, 2B, BB

The Marauders made it a sweep with a 5-4 win in game two.  Tanner Anderson made a spot start and allowed four runs on eight hits in four and two-thirds innings.  Bradenton had only four hits, but benefited from five walks, three errors and four unearned runs.  Cole Tucker went 0-4 with three strikeouts to finish a rough day 0-8 with five whiffs.

Tito Polo:  0-2, 2 BB
Kevin Kramer:  1-3, BB
Luis Heredia:  IP, 2 H, Sv

-- The GCL Pirates (20-25) scored two in the ninth to tie their game with the Tigers West, then took a walkoff win, 4-3, in the tenth.  Max Kranick started and went four and a third innings, allowing two runs, one earned, on five hits.  He walked none and struck out three.  Paul Brands started both rallies with singles, which accounted for half of the Pirates' hits.  The Bucs had ten walks and eleven whiffs.

Edison Lantigua:  0-3, 2 BB
Yondry Contreras:  0-5

-- The DSL Pirates (26-37) lost to the Yankees1, 3-2.  Yeudry Manzanillo allowed one run on four hits and a walk, with no strikeouts.  Rodolfo Castro was 2-4.
