Cannonballs coming: Grand slam for Josh Bell

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

West Virginia and the GCL Pirates were rained out, and Altoona was off.

-- Indianapolis (58-59) lost to Toledo, 6-5.  Drew Hutchison couldn't get out of the fifth inning, allowing all of his five runs in the frame and departing with two out.  He gave up seven hits and three walks, and struck out five.  Josh Bell provided most of Indy's offense with a grand slam, his fourteenth HR in AAA.  The four RBIs matched John Jaso's total for the last five weeks.  (Of course, Bell did that as a major leaguer, too.)  Bell finished 2-5.

Alen Hanson:  1-5
Austin Meadows:  0-3, BB
Jose Osuna:  1-3, BB
Max Moroff:  0-4
Elias Diaz:  1-4

-- Bradenton (57-55) failed to hold a one-run lead in the top of the ninth, but ultimately beat Palm Beach, 5-4, on a two-out, walkoff single by Kevin Kramer in the 11th.  Kramer finished 3-6 with a double and three RBIs.  Justin Maffei had two doubles in five trips.  Stephen Tarpley gave up three runs on six hits in six and two-thirds innings.  He walked none and fanned six.

Cole Tucker:  1-4
Jordan Luplow:  0-3, 3 BB
Connor Joe:  2-3, 2 BB

-- Morgantown (22-28) got blanked by Williamsport, 3-0.  The Back Bears had eight hits, but hit into three double plays.  Kevin Mahala and Albert Baur each went 2-4.  Luis Escobar had a solid start, allowing two runs on seven hits and a walk in six innings.  He fanned six.

Stephen Alemais:  0-4
Will Craig:  1-4

-- Jordan Jess blew a three-run lead in the top of the ninth as Bristol (17-27) lost to Kingsport, 5-4.  Starter Ike Schlabach threw five shutout innings, giving up two hits, walking none and striking out two.  The Pirates had eight hits and seven walks, but fanned a dozen times and stranded ten.  Adrian Valerio went 3-5.

Victor Fernandez:  0-5
Raul Siri:  2-3, BB
Julio De La Cruz:  2-4

-- The DSL Pirates (22-33) took a big early lead and hung on to edge the Cubs1, 10-9.  Rodolfo Castro hit a three-run HR, his second longball and the fifth for the Pirates in 55 games.  Jeremias Portorreal and Larry Alcime were each 2-3, Portorreal with a double and Alcime a triple.

Kevin Sanchez:  0-5
Sherten Apostel:  0-4
Gabriel Brito:  1-3, 2B, BB
