Cannonballs coming: Mitch Keller throws seven shutout innings

New, comments

— Indianapolis (7-15) lost to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 7-6, in 11 innings. Drew Hutchison continued pitching poorly, although his defense didn’t help. He gave up five runs, three earned, in five and two-thirds innings. He allowed eight hits, walked two and struck out two. Indy eventually took a 6-5 lead into the bottom of the ninth, but Angel Sanchez had a control meltdown and couldn’t hold it. Sanchez then gave up a walkoff HR with one out in the 11th. Indy had to activate Justin Maffei due to all the player moves and Maffei went 2-4. Anderson Feliz hit a three-run HR, his first longball of the year. Chris Bostick went 2-5 with a double and a walk. He’s 17-for-41 (.415) in his last ten games, but what’s that compared to Danny Ortiz’ .499 OPS?

Max Moroff: 2-5
Austin Meadows: 1-5
Sanchez: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 3 K

— Altoona (13-9) edged Harrisburg, 3-2. Starter Alex McRae went seven innings, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks. He struck out four. McRae also get his first pro HR, in fact his first hit of any type. Kevin Kramer was 2-4 with a triple.

Kevin Newman: 2-4
Connor Joe: 2-4

— Mitch Keller (pictured) returned to the dominant form he showed last year, putting up seven shutout innings in Bradenton’s (13-11) 4-2 win over Charlotte. Keller allowed five hits, walked one and fanned nine. Daniel Arribas led the offense, going 2-4 with a double and a triple.

Cole Tucker: 1-3, BB
Ke’Bryan Hayes: 0-4
Will Craig: 0-4

— West Virginia (11-14) beat Rome, 8-2. Luis Escobar had a different sort of start, fanning only four in five innings but still allowing only four hits and two runs. He walked two. Hunter Owen went 2-3 with a triple and a walk and Sandy Santos hit his third HR.

Stephen Alemais: 1-5
Ty Moore: 2-5, 2B
