West Virginia was rained out.

— Indianapolis (14-17) had its six-game winning streak snapped in an 11-4 loss to Norfolk. Starter Cody Dickson — who’ll likely be replaced in the rotation by Nick Kingham — lasted only two-thirds of an inning. Brett McKinney followed with three and a third scoreless innings, fanning five, but Angel Sanchez got torched for seven runs in two innings. Three of them scored after Pat Light came on, and Light gave up two more of his own. Austin Meadows went 2-4 with a pair of doubles and Erich Weiss went 3-4 with a double.

Phil Gosselin: 1-2, BB
Elias Diaz: 0-4
A.J. Schugel: IP, BB, 2 K
Dovydas Neverauskas: IP, K

— Altoona (20-12) beat New Hampshire, 7-1. Yeudy Garcia went five innings, allowing a run on five hits. He walked none and fanned four, throwing 53 of 79 pitches for strikes. Jackson Williams went 3-3 with a walk and Chase Simpson 2-4 with a double.

Kevin Newman: 1-5, 3 K
Kevin Kramer: 0-4, BB
Connor Joe: 1-2, 2B, 2 BB

— Cole Tucker (pictured) drove in seven runs, hit a pair of HRs, and fell a single short of a cycle as Bradenton (23-13) routed Palm Beach, 20-2. Tucker finished 4-6 and the two longballs were his first two of the year. He needed a single to get the cycle his last time up against an infielder who was pressed into mound duty, but Tucker homered instead. Over his last ten games, he’s 17-for-44 (.386) and is up to 285/369/423 overall. The Marauders had only 13 hits, but drew 14 walks and had one batter hit. Logan Hill went 2-3 with five RBIs, three walks and his ninth HR, the last also coming off the infielder. Starter Logan Sendelbach threw five shutout innings, allowing five hits and no walks, and striking out one.

Will Craig: 2-4, BB, HBP, 3 runs
Jordan George: 2-4, 2B, 2 BB, 3 runs
Christian Kelley: 0-3, 2 BB
