Cannonballs coming: Tyler Glasnow goes seven with no runs or walks

MLB: New York Mets at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

One unhappy news item: Outfielder Conner Uselton, who was the 72nd overall pick in the draft, will miss the rest of the season (sub. req’d) with a small tear in his hamstring. He was injured in his second pro game. It’s unknown yet whether he’ll be available for fall instructional league. Typically, a prep position player drafted as early as Uselton would go to full season ball the year after he was drafted. That’d be especially helpful in Uselton’s case, because he was a little older than most prep draftees; he turned 19 in May. We’ll have to see how the missed time affects his initial assignment.

— Tyler Glasnow threw seven shutout innings as Indianapolis (52-39) blanked Louisville, 6-0. Glasnow threw 66 of 101 pitches for strikes and didn’t walk a batter. He gave up three hits and fanned six, and also hit a triple. Nick Kingham followed Glasnow with a perfect inning in relief. (Maybe the Pirates are listening to me . . . well, probably not.) Joey Terdoslavich went 3-4 with his fifth HR, a three-run bomb. He has seven hits in his last two games. Eric Wood also went deep, his 12th, and was 2-4. Starling Marte was 2-5.

Chris Bostick: 1-4, BB
Erich Weiss: 1-2, 2 BB
Gift Ngoepe: 1-4, 2B
Dovydas Neverauskas: IP, H

— Altoona (46-43) fell further behind first-place Bowie with a 5-4 loss. The Curve are competing with the Baysox for the division title and have now dropped seven straight games to them. In this one, Altoona rallied for a run in the ninth to pull within one, but Jin-De Jhang lined out with the tying run on third. Jerrick Suiter went 3-5 with his seventh HR, raising his average to .321. Starter Austin Coley gave up two runs on seven hits and a walk in six innings. He struck out two. Brandon Cumpton struggled in relief, giving up three runs and five hits in an inning and a third.

Kevin Newman: 1-5
Logan Hill: 1-4, BB
Jhang: 1-4, BB
Wyatt Mathisen: 0-4

— Bradenton (50-37) got a combined three-hitter from Pedro Vasquez and Seth McGarry as they beat Clearwater, 3-1. Vasquez went seven innings, needing just 85 pitches and allowing two hits and two walks. He gave up one run and struck out three. McGarry fanned four in the last two innings and allowed a hit. Ke’Bryan Hayes reached base four times, going 2-3 with two walks. Will Craig was 0-3, but drew a walk and drove in two runs.

Mitchell Tolman: 2-5
Kevin Krause: 1-3, 2B, BB

— West Virginia (39-48) beat Augusta, 7-6, on a two-out, walkoff single by Ryan Nagle in the ninth. Nagle’s hit scored Hunter Owen, who had doubled, and gave the Power a win after reliever Ronny Agustin had allowed a game-tying, two-run HR in the top of the inning. Starter Eduardo Vera had longball problems, giving up three in five and a third innings. He allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk, and struck out two. Matt Anderson gave up no runs or hits, and two walks, in two and two-thirds innings of relief. He struck out six and has now fanned 13 in his last six and a third innings, as the move back to the bullpen seems to be working well for him. The Power had 13 hits, five walks and a hit batsman, but had to overcome four double plays. They also didn’t strike out a single time. Owen finished 3-4 with a double, a triple and three runs scored.

Adrian Valerio: 1-5
Garrett Brown: 3-3, BB

— Morgantown (15-9) rallied for two runs in the ninth and beat Staten Island, 6-5, on a walkoff single by Deon Stafford. The bad guys came into the game with a league-best 17-6 record. Stafford’s single came with two outs and the bases loaded. He also belted his second HR, finishing the game 2-5. Tristan Gray went 1-4 and hit his second HR. (BA had Gray listed under “Helium” on its prospect hot sheet today. He’s now hitting 375/446/667, with a 1:1 BB:K ratio.) Third round pick Dylan Busby had a rough day, striking out all four times up. Scooter Hightower got hit around, giving up ten hits and four runs in six innings.

Jared Oliva: 2-4, 2B
Lucas Tancas: 3-4

— Travis MacGregor had a rough start for Bristol (7-15) as the Pirates lost to Johnson City, 8-6. MacGregor gave up four runs on five hits and two walks in three innings. He struck out one. The Pirates drew eight walks, three of them by Nelson Jorge, but struck out 14 times. Johan De Jesus went 2-4 with a triple.

Yondry Contreras: 1-4, 2B
Jason Delay: 2-4
Edison Lantigua: 0-4, 3 K

— The GCL Pirates’ (5-11) game against the Yankees East was suspended with the Pirates leading, 7-0, in the fourth inning. Shane Baz pitched the first three innings. He gave up two hits and a walk, and struck out two. Victor Ngoepe had a three-run double.

— The DSL Pirates (20-16) blew a 4-2 lead in the ninth and lost to the Rangers1, 5-4. Oliver Garcia, who’s been by far the team’s best starter, gave up one run on four hits and two walks in five innings. He struck out six. Williams Calderon was 2-3 with a triple and three RBIs.

Jean Eusebio: 1-4, 2B
Francisco Acuna: 1-4
Samuel Inoa: 0-4
