Cannonballs coming: Regular season ends

-- Indianapolis (70-74) went with a partially makeshift lineup in a 4-1 loss to Louisville.  John Kuchno gave up just a run on six hits in six innings.  The Indians' offense struggled as if they were facing Sandy Koufax or Chase Anderson or something, managing only three hits.  The only run came on a HR by Trace Tam Sing.  Austin Meadows went 0-2 and was then replaced by Willy Garcia.  There's no indication of any injury.  Meadows finished with a line of 214/297/460 in AAA.

-- It took four games and ten innings, but Altoona (76-64) finally clinched a playoff berth with a 2-0 win over Richmond.  Tyler Eppler survived five hits and four walks in six innings.  He struck out seven.  Jared Lakind threw three scoreless innings for the win.  With Montana DuRapau struggling lately, the Curve went with Brett McKinney for the save.  The Curve were facing a random Milwaukee Brewer starter Andrew Suarez, who came in with an opponents' average of .304, but could manage only two hits in the first eight innings.  Stetson Allie finally broke the scoreless tie in the tenth with an RBI double.  Kevin Newman was 1-5 and Barrett Barnes 0-2 with two sacrifice bunts, since that's clearly the best use you can make of your hottest hitter.

-- West Virginia (71-68) closed out its season with a 6-4 win over Greeneville.  Dario Agrazal (pictured) threw eight shutout innings, allowing just three hits and no walks.  He struck out five.  Julio Eusebio gave up the four runs, three of them unearned, in the ninth.  Logan Hill was 2-4 with a double and his 11th HR with the Power, 13th overall.  Mitchell Tolman was 2-3 with a double, a walk and three runs.  Daniel Arribas was 2-4.

-- Morgantown (38-38) lost its finale, 17-1, to Mahoning Valley.  The Pirates moved Jacob Taylor up from the GCL to make the start and it didn't go too well.  Taylor gave up five runs in an inning and two-thirds.  He was followed by Juan Nicasio Billy Roth, who gave up three gopher balls, and things deteriorated from there.  The Black Bears had only five hits.  Will Craig was 0-4, finishing his season at 280/412/362.
