— Altoona (7-3) beat Akron, 2-1. Tanner Anderson (pictured), who’s looking sort of interesting in a Cumpton/Sadler kinda way, went five and two-thirds scoreless innings. He didn’t dominate, striking out only one and allowing seven hits, but he got a ton of groundballs, including a lot of the hits. He walked one. I watched some of the game after Anderson was out and the announcers said there was little hard contact. Sean Keselica retired all seven hitters he faced in relief, five on grounders and one on a strikeout. He’s allowed just two hits and a walk, and no runs, in seven and two-thirds innings so far. The Altoona runs came on Edwin Espinal’s first HR.

Kevin Newman: 1-3, BB (two hits in last 18 ABs)
Kevin Kramer: 1-3, BB
Connor Joe: 1-3
Jordan Luplow: 0-3
Wyatt Mathisen: 0-3

— Bradenton (8-3) lost a 3-2 game to Tampa. Gage Hinsz didn’t have a great game, but it was a lot better than his first start. He gave up three runs on five hits and two walks in six innings. He fanned four. Yunior Montero fanned five in two innings of scoreless relief. He now has 15 strikeouts in six and two-thirds innings. Casey Hughston drove in both runs and went 3-4 with two doubles. He’s now hitting 343/400/514.

— West Virginia (3-7) won its second straight, beating Lexington, 3-2. Cam Vieaux allowed one run over six innings. He gave up five hits and a walk, and struck out four. Trae Arbet hit his third HR. Stephen Alemais went 2-3 and drove in the other two runs with a triple.
