Cannonballs coming: Kang starts rehab, Glasnow continues

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

-- Tyler Glasnow had a Glasnow kinda start as Indianapolis (69-71) won the first game of its doubleheader with Louisville, 4-1.  Glasnow went five and two-thirds innings, allowing a run on three hits and four walks, while striking out eight.  He threw 52 of 86 pitches for strikes.  Glasnow got two outs in the fifth, having allowed just one hit at that point, but he gave up a run on a single, a wild pitch and another single, ending his start.  Newly acquired Zach Phillips got off to a rough start in relief, walking the first two batters he faced.  Fortunately, after Phillips gave up a four-pitch walk to the second hitter, Josh Harrison some random AAA guy chased the next pitch and popped up.  Phillips threw a 1-2-3 seventh inning to get the save.  Austin Meadows and a rehabbing Jung-Ho Kang each went 1-3 with a HR and two RBIs.  Meadows' HR was his sixth with Indy and twelfth altogether in 82 games.  Kang played the whole game at third but saw no action in the field.

Jose Osuna:  0-4
Elias Diaz:  0-2
Max Moroff:  1-2

The Indians picked up another 4-1 win to complete the sweep behind Trevor Williams.  He had a chance at a seven-inning complete game, but retired only one of three hitters in the seventh, leaving his pitch count at 102.  Edgar Santana got a ground out and then struck out Dilson Herrera to earn the save.  Williams gave up just an unearned run on six hits and a walk, while striking out ten.  He now has a 2.53 ERA to go with a 1.21 WHIP.  Jacob Stallings went 2-2 with a double and Danny Ortiz hit his 16th HR.

Max Moroff:  1-2, 2B, BB
Austin Meadows:  1-3
Jose Osuna:  0-3

-- Altoona (75-61) blanked Binghamton, 7-0.  Three pitchers survived 11 hits for the shutout.  Starter Alex McRae gave up eight of them in six innings.  He walked one and struck out three.  Since starting his Altoona stint with a 10.25 ERA and 2.16 WHIP in his first six starts, McRae has posted a 2.47 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in nine starts and one relief appearance.  Edwin Espinal went 2-4 with a double and three RBIs.  Stetson Allie hit his 15th HR and Elvis Escobar his second with the Curve.

Erich Weiss:  2-4, BB
Kevin Newman:  1-2, 3 BB
Barrett Barnes:  1-2, 2B, 2 BB
Eric Wood:  1-4

-- Bradenton's game with Fort Myers was suspended with the Marauders ahead, 2-1, after four and a half innings.  Jordan Luplow provided both Bradenton runs with his ninth HR.

-- West Virginia (68-67) lost to Columbia, 4-1.  Logan Sendelbach gave up four runs, three earned, over six innings.  The Power had only five hits.  Carlos Munoz was 2-4 with a double.

-- Morgantown (35-37) beat Auburn, 6-2.  James Marvel went six innings, giving up two runs on six hits and a walk.  He struck out two.  Albert Baur hit a grand slam, his fourth HR of the year, while going 2-4.  Will Craig also went 2-4.

-- Bristol finished its season with a 9-8 loss in ten innings to Kingsport, leaving the Pirates with a 25-43 record.  The Pirates took a one-run lead in the top of the tenth, but a two-out throwing error by third baseman Julio De La Cruz let the tying and winning runs score.  Starter Adam Oller got hit around a good bit, allowing four runs on nine hits in five innings.  Victor Fernandez went 2-4 with a double to finish his season (unless he gets promoted) with a line of 314/382/450.  Michael De La Cruz was also 2-4.  Adrian Valerio went 1-4.
