West Virginia was off.

— Indianapolis (12-16) got a strong start from Clay Holmes in a 3-2 win over Charlotte. Holmes has had to throw too many pitches at times this year, but in this game he needed only 81 to get through seven innings. He allowed two runs on seven hits, walked none and fanned eight. Austin Meadows (pictured) went 3-4 with a double. (I’ve been dying to be able to write something like that.) Phil Gosselin played short and went 0-3 with a walk, a strikeout and a GIDP.

Elias Diaz: 2-4
Angel Sanchez: IP, 2 K

— Altoona (17-12) had just a big of pitching trouble in a 14-6 loss to Richmond. Starter Tanner Anderson lasted only three and two-thirds innings, allowing four runs. Buddy Borden walked four in one inning of work. And then Jared Lakind, who’s officially struggling badly now, got hammered for six runs in one inning. Infielder Chris Diaz threw the last inning, allowing three more runs. Pablo Reyes went 4-5 with a double.

Kevin Newman: 2-5, 3B
Kevin Kramer: 2-4, 2B, 2 BB
Connor Joe: 1-3
Wyatt Mathisen: 1-3, BB

— Bradenton (20-13) got some strong pitching in a 3-1 win over Jupiter. Pedro Vasquez went six and two-thirds, giving up seven hits and a run, walking none and striking out four. Yunior Montero followed and struck out all four batters he faced. The offense managed only six hits.

Cole Tucker: 0-3, BB, 3 K
Ke’Bryan Hayes: 1-4
Will Craig: 1-3
Christian Kelley: 1-3, 2B, BB
