Cannonballs coming: Very little offense in the system tonight

— Indianapolis (28-23) got blanked by Lehigh Valley, 6-0. Cody Dickson started and lasted just two and two-thirds. (I’m not quite sure whether the team intends for all of Dickson’s starts to end up as bullpen games, but that’s what happens every time.) He gave up only one run and two hits, but walked four while striking out five. Antonio Bastardo and Josh Lindblom both made rehab appearances. Bastardo gave up a run on two hits in one inning, and struck out two. The run resulted from a routine fly ball that fell for a triple when the outfielders lost it in the lights. Lindblom gave up four runs on four hits in one inning. He walked one and struck out one. The Indians had only six hits.

Chris Bostick: 1-3, 2B, BB
Austin Meadows: 0-4
Edgar Santana: 0.1 IP, H, BB, K
Angel Sanchez: 3 IP, H, 5 K
Pat Light: IP, K

— West Virginia (24-25) beat Charleston, 5-3. Starter James Marvel went four scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and a walk, and striking out five. Oddy Nunez followed, allowing two runs, one earned, over the final five innings. The two runs came on a bunt hit, another infield hit, an error and two fly outs. Those were the only hits Nunez allowed. He walked none and struck out three. The Power had only four hits, but they had some help with walks. Trae Arbet hit his seventh HR with two on base via walks. Kevin Mahala also went deep, his first, after replacing Hunter Owen, who left for unknown reasons.

Adrian Valerio: 1-3
Owen: 0-2
