Cannonballs coming: Power win big on light day

Indianapolis and Altoona are off for the All-Star break, Morgantown was off just for today, and Bradenton was rained out. With the two upper level teams off for the break, Starling Marte’s rehab got moved to Bradenton, so he’ll lose a day to the rain.

— West Virginia (38-46) hammered Rome, 11-3. The Power had 16 hits, 15 of them singles. Carlos Munoz went 3-4 and drove in five runs. Starter James Marvel gave up just an unearned run in five innings. He allowed four hits and a walk, and struck out three.

Adrian Valerio: 3-5
Albert Baur: 3-5, 4 runs
Hunter Owen: 1-4, 2B, BB

— Bristol (5-14) lost to Pulaski, 4-3. Evan Piechota started and gave up three runs, two earned, on seven hits in six innings. He walked nobody and struck out three. Edison Lantigua went 3-3 with a walk. The rest of the team had only three hits.

Yondry Contreras: 0-4
Ben Bengtsen: 1-3, BB
Ryan Peurifoy: 1-4, 2B

— The GCL Pirates (2-11) finally got some offense, but gave up five late runs and lost their ninth straight to the Braves, 8-6. Jeremias Portorreal (pictured) had a three-run HR, his first longball of the season, and drew three walks. Calvin Mitchell was 2-4 with a walk. Mason Martin played his second game and remains hitless. He went 0-3 with two walks. Starter Leandro gave up three runs, two earned, on five hits in five innings. He walked two and fanned six.

— The DSL Pirates (19-13) also lost due to five late runs, in their case 8-5 to the Rays2. Samuel Inoa was 2-5. Sherten Apostel, after hitting five HRs in his previous four games, left this one after his first AB due to a migraine (sub. req’d).
