Cannonballs coming: Logan Hill HRs twice

New, comments

The Pirates’ organization completed another day of futility at the plate, going a combined 1-for-34 with runners in scoring position, Pirates included, as everybody lost. Everybody except Indianapolis, that is, which was spared an evening of pointless flailing by a rainout.

— Altoona (10-8) went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position and lost to Erie, 7-3. Kevin Newman broke out of a slump, going 3-4 with his first HR. Jordan Luplow was 2-4 with two doubles. J.T. Brubaker gave up only five hits and a walk in six innings, but four of the hits went for extra bases, including two HRs. He was charged with four runs while striking out three.

Kevin Kramer: 1-4
Connor Joe: 1-4
Wyatt Mathisen: 1-4

— Mitch Keller had a shaky start as Bradenton (10-9) outhit Fort Myers but still lost, 7-3. Keller through five innings allowed one run, on a solo HR, but he ran into control issues in the sixth and gave up two more runs. He finished with four hits and three walks allowed in six innings, with five strikeouts. The Marauders’ hitters were 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position. Logan Hill (pictured) provided most of the offense with a pair of solo HRs, giving him four HRs on the year. Alfredo Reyes was 3-4 with two doubles.

Mitchell Tolman: 0-5
Cole Tucker: 1-4
Will Craig: 1-4
Ke’Bryan Hayes: 1-4

— West Virginia (8-12) did their part, going 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position in a 3-1 loss to Charleston. Luis Escobar had some control issues, taking 89 pitches to get through five and two-thirds innings. He gave up two runs on six hits and two walks, while striking out nine. He now has 41 strikeouts in 22.1 IP. West Virginia placed LHP Hector Garcia on the disabled list before the game. I don’t know why, but he faced just one hitter in his last outing and then came out. Trae Arbet came out of the game shortly after being hit by a pitch.

Stephen Alemais: 1-4
Ty Moore: 1-3, BB
