Cannonballs coming: Hinsz goes seven

The GCL Pirates were rained out and I’ll have a separate report on Altoona.

— Indianapolis (54-44) lost to Gwinnett, 9-3. Clay Holmes gave up only two hits, but control problems limited him to four innings. He walked six and three only 44 of 80 pitches for strikes. Holmes struck out three and was charged with one run. Tyler Eppler followed and blew up the game, allowing six runs, five earned, in three innings. Chris Bostick and Phil Gosselin each had three hits.

Elias Diaz: 0-4
Eric Wood: 0-3, BB
Gift Ngoepe: 1-4

— Bradenton (54-40) beat Clearwater, 6-4. Gage Hinsz (pictured) gave up a two-run HR in the second, but allowed no other runs through seven innings. He allowed five hits, walked none and struck out four. Ty Moore went 3-3 with a double and a walk.

— West Virginia (42-51) lost to Kannapolis, 5-4. Mike Wallace gave up three runs in five innings on five hits and two walks. He had five strikeouts. Adrian Valerio had a nice day, going 2-4 with a double and his sixth HR. The Power are having a tough time to piece together a lineup with Hunter Owen out. Their cleanup hitter now is Yoel Gonzalez, who has a .552 career OPS. Ryan Nagle had three hits.

Morgantown (19-12) got a walkoff win in the 12th, beat State College, 4-3. The Black Bears tied the game in the ninth on a walk, bunt and error. They won it when Bligh Madris doubled in Jared Oliva with two outs. Stephan Meyer allowed a run on eight hits and a walk in six innings, striking out five. Deon Stafford hit his third HR, his only hit in six ABs.

— Hapless Bristol (8-21) got blanked by Burlington, 4-0. Jacob Taylor had a much better start than last time, when he failed to record an out. He went three and a third, allowing four hits and two walks, but just one unearned run. He struck out two. The Pirates’ defense committed five errors and let in three unearned runs, and the offense was 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position. Henrry Rosario had three hits.

Edison Lantigua: 1-3
Ben Bengtson: 0-4

— The DSL Pirates (23-18) beat the Dodgers2, 5-3. Sherten Apostel continued his power surge, going 2-4 with a double, his sixth HR and three RBIs. Oliver Garcia, who’s been by far the team’s best starter, gave up two runs on four hits and a walk in five innings, while striking out seven.

Francisco Acuna: 1-4, 2B
Samuel Inoa: 1-4
