New, comments
Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

-- Drew Hutchison finally showed some indication of why the Pirates traded for him, throwing six and a third innings in Indianapolis' (70-72) 1-0 win over Louisville.  Hutchison gave up four hits and a walk, and struck out five.  Curtis Partch, Zach Phillips and Jorge Rondon finished, although Phillips walked the only hitter he faced.  The Indians had only five hits.  Willy Garcia was 2-4 with two doubles, and drove in the game's only run.

Austin Meadows:  0-4
Jung-Ho Kang:  0-2, 2 BB
Jose Osuna:  1-4, 2B
Max Moroff:  0-3, BB

-- Montana DuRapau gave up a walkoff grand slam as Altoona (75-63) lost to Richmond, 7-3.  DuRapau came on in the ninth with a 3-2 lead, but after retiring the first hitter gave up two singles, two walks and the slam.  DuRapau now has a 6.60 ERA in his last 17 outings.  Starter Cody Dickson gave up two runs on six hits and four walks in five innings.  He fanned seven.  Jin-De Jhang had half the Curve's hits, going 3-4 with a double.

-- Bradenton (70-65) lost to Fort Myers, 7-3, in the completion of its suspended game from two days ago.  J.T.

-- Gage Hinsz overcame some control problems to allow just one run and two hits over five innings as West Virginia (69-68) beat Greeneville, 4-1.  Hinsz walked four, fanned six, and threw only 49 of 87 pitches for strikes.  The Power had only five hits.  Casey Hughston, Logan Hill, Carlos Munoz and Jordan George all went 1-3.  George is hitting 327/464/459 in 32 games since being promoted to the Power.
