Cannonballs coming: Outstanding start for Tanner Anderson

The two West Virginia teams were off.

— Tyler Eppler continued to have gopher ball issues in Indianapolis’ (57-46) 7-1 loss to Rochester. Eppler gave up three in six innings, accounting for all four of the runs he allowed, although one was unearned. He allowed six hits in all, along with a walk, and he fanned seven. Edgar Santana threw one inning in relief and gave up a three-run HR. Since he was sent back down, Santana has allowed six runs and 17 hits in 10.2 IP. The Indians managed only six hits.

Gift Ngoepe: 0-3
Jordan Luplow: 0-3
Elias Diaz: 0-4
Montana DuRapau: IP, 2 K

— Tanner Anderson threw eight shutout innings as Altoona (53-48) climbed into a three-way tie for first by beating Reading, 6-2. Anderson allowed five hits and a walk, and fanned nine. Miguel Rosario ran into trouble in the ninth, walking three and allowing two runs, which required Sean Keselica to come on for a one-out save. Rosario has a nice ERA (1.80), but he’s walked 16 in his last 7.2 IP and 35 in 45 innings on the year. The suddenly slugging Pablo Reyes was 2-3 with a walk and his eighth HR. Logan Hill went 0-2 with a walk and a hit batsman. He stayed in to run after getting hit, but Jerrick Suiter replaced him in the field in the next half inning.

Cole Tucker: 1-4, BB
Jin-De Jhang: 1-3, 2B, BB

— Bradenton (58-41) won a 9-8 slugfest (by FSL standards) from St. Lucie. Casey Hughston went 2-4 with his fifth HR and three RBIs. Jordan George added his ninth HR. Stephen Alemais went 3-4, raising his average to .526 since his promotion, but he came out after suffering an arm injury from hitting a foul ball (sub. req’d). Gage Hinsz had a rough start, allowing six runs in five innings on ten hits and three walks. He struck out two.

Ke’Bryan Hayes: 1-5, 2B
Mitchell Tolman: 3-5, 2B
Kevin Krause: 2-4

— Bristol (8-26) lost for the something time in a row and the something in something games, 4-1 to Bluefield. (Just fill in some random, large numbers.) Jacob Taylor gave up three runs, two earned, on four hits and four walks in three innings. He struck out two. The first three batters in the order went 7-for-12, but somehow that resulted in only one run. Everybody else went 0-for-19.

Yondry Contreras: 2-4
Edison Lantigua: 3-4
Ben Bengtson: 2-4

— Shane Baz struggled in the GCL Pirates’ (10-16) 12-5 loss to the Braves. Baz got knocked out after two and a third innings. He gave up five runs, one of them unearned, on five hits and a walk, with three strikeouts. Gabriel Brito was 2-3 with a walk. Mason Martin didn’t go deep, probably as a result of not playing.

Lolo Sanchez: 0-4, BB
Jeremias Portorreal: 0-5
Rodolfo Castro: 0-5

— The DSL Pirates (24-21) lost to the Rays2, 7-5, in a game shortened by rain to seven and a half innings. Jean Eusebio was 2-4 with a triple.
