Cannonballs coming: Morgantown finishing well

Bradenton and the GCL Pirates had their games cancelled.  The GCL team initially was scheduled to finish their season with a doubleheader tomorrow, but that was cancelled as well, so their season ends with a 22-34 record.

-- What's left of the Indianapolis (67-71) team lost to Toledo, 4-2.  John Kuchno got the start and allowed four runs on ten hits in five innings.  The Indians had just six hits, all singles.

Max Moroff:  0-2, 2 BB
Jose Osuna:  2-4

-- Altoona (74-61) beat Binghamton, 9-4.  Tyler Eppler went seven innings, allowing four runs, just two earned, on six hits and no walks.  He struck out four.  Stetson Allie hit a three-run HR, his 14th HR of the season.  Barrett Barnes stayed hot, going 2-3 with a walk.  Chris Stewart went 2-4 and got called for catcher's interference.  Pinch-hitter extraordinaire Tomas Morales, who already has two PH HRs (the only HRs he's hit as a pro), had a PH triple.

-- West Virginia (68-66) lost to Columbia, 5-4, in walkoff fashion in the bottom of the ninth.  Starter Dario Agrazal allowed four runs, only one earned, on seven hits in five innings.  Jordan George was 2-4 with two doubles.  Stephen Alemais came out for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the fourth.  He was involved in five separate plays in the top of the inning, so something probably happened on one of those plays.

-- Morgantown (34-37) beat Batavia, 7-4, in a game that ended due to rain after Batavia batted in the top of the eighth.  The Black Bears had 15 hits.  Albert Baur (pictured) and Will Craig each went 3-4, with Baur getting two doubles.  Sandy Santos, Ty Moore and Erik Forgione had two hits apiece.  Starter Cam Vieaux came out after three and two-thirds innings.  It's not clear exactly why, as he'd thrown only 59 pitches and faced only three hitters in the fourth.  The Black Bears are finishing their season fairly well, winning 15 of their last 25.  That's largely due to an offense that, after a slow start, has done well lately.  They're now fourth in the NYPL in both runs per game and OPS, although they do have the league's oldest hitters.

-- Bristol (25-42) lost to Kingsport, 2-1, in ten innings.  Matt Eckelman had what will, absent a promotion, be the last start of a solid first season.  He allowed one run on five hits and no walks over six innings, with five strikeouts.  Eckelman finishes with a 2.76 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 1.31 BB/9 and 7.98 K/9.  The Pirates had seven hits.  Adrian Valerio was 1-5.
