Cannonballs coming: Erich Weiss drives in seven

New, 10 comments

The two rookie level teams were off and Bristol was rained out.

-- Indianapolis (64-65) blew a late, three-run lead and lost to Louisville, 5-4.  Trevor Williams had a good start, going six and a third innings and getting charged with two runs, one earned, on five hits and two walks.  He struck out six.  He was relieved in the seventh by Josh Smith, who was promoted from Altoona recently despite having an ERA of 5.91 and WHIP of 1.59 in two years there.  Smith allowed a three-run HR after an error prolonged the inning.  Jose Osuna was 2-4 and Gift Ngoepe 2-3 with a double.

Alen Hanson:  0-3, 2 BB
Austin Meadows:  0-5, 3 K

-- Erich Weiss (pictured) drove in seven runs and fell a single short of a cycle as Altoona (69-57) hammered New Hampshire, 11-5.  Weiss was 3-4 and the HR was his sixth.  He missed on two chances to get the single, although he got a sacrifice fly on one.  Tomas Morales hit his first HR.  Tyler Eppler gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk, while striking out two.

Jin-De Jhang:  2-4, BB
Eric Wood:  1-4, BB
Barrett Barnes:  2-5

-- Bradenton (66-59) beat Charlotte, 7-1.  Yeudy Garcia had a different, for him, sort of performance.  He needed only 67 pitches to get through six innings, 47 of them strikes, and walked none while stiking out only two.  Garcia allowed one unearned run and four hits in six innings.  Connor Joe went 2-4 with a double, triple and walk.  He's now hitting 282/348/408, after hitting just 236/297/342 in the season's first two months.  The league average is 250/322/357.  Jordan Luplow was 2-5 with his seventh HR.

Cole Tucker:  2-5, 2B
Tito Polo:  0-4, BB
Kevin Kramer:  1-4

-- West Virginia's game with Kannapolis was suspended in the top of the fifth with the score 1-1.

-- Morgantown (28-33) nearly blew a four-run lead in the ninth, but hung on to beat Batavia, 6-5.  Dylan Prohoroff had to relieve Billy Roth to get the last out.  Tyler Leffler was 3-4 with a double and Kevin Mahala 2-5 with his second HR.  Albert Baur also hit his second HR.  James Marvel gave up two runs on three hits and two walks in four innings, while striking out four.

Sandy Santos:  2-4, 2B
Will Craig:  0-3, 2 BB
