The GCL and DSL Pirates don’t play on Sundays. Bradenton was rained out.
— Tyler Glasnow dominated for six innings in Indianapolis’ (59-49) 3-2 win over Pawtucket in 12 innings. Glasnow fanned the first seven batters he faced, then got a series of easy outs until he gave up his first hit, an infield single, with one out in the fifth. He picked off that runner. In the seventh he issued his first walk to the leadoff batter. After getting his 12th strikeout, he gave up an RBI double, his third hit allowed. With his pitch count at 102, Glasnow departed for Montana DuRapau, who got two strikeouts to end the inning. In fact, DuRapau fanned all five batters he faced. Indy’s only run up until that point came on a HR by Danny Ortiz, so Glasnow got a no-decision. Edgar Santana continued his moderate struggles, allowing four hits and a run in two innings. That left Indy trailing, 2-1, in the bottom of the tenth but Ortiz went deep again to tie the game. He now has 12 on the year. The Indians finally won the game when Kevin Newman singled off the left field wall with two outs in the bottom of the 12th to drive in Eric Wood from third.
Chris Bostick: 0-6
Newman: 2-6, 2B

— Altoona (54-51) lost to Trenton, 3-2, in 11 innings. Austin Coley had his fourth straight good start, allowing two runs on eight hits in seven innings. He walked none and fanned seven. Yeudy Garcia walked in the go-ahead run in the top of the 11th, one of four walks he issued in two and a third innings. Altoona’s offense is pretty makeshift these days, with Kevin Newman and Edwin Espinal promoted, and Kevin Kramer, Logan Hill and Wyatt Mathisen all hurt. The losses showed, as the Curve had only six hits. Connor Joe produced one run with his fifth HR while going 1-4 with a walk.
Cole Tucker: 1-6
Jerrick Suiter: 0-3, BB
Jin-De Jhang: 0-4, BB
Jake Brentz: 1.2 IP, 3 K
— Luis Escobar had a strong start as West Virginia (47-54) dropped a 2-1 game to Hagerstown in 11 innings. Escobar allowed just a run on two hits and three walks in seven innings. He fanned seven. The one run scored on a walk, a bunt and a groundball single deflected by the second baseman. Pasquale Mazzoccoli gave up his first run of the year in the 11th to take the loss. The Power had only five hits, with the only run scoring on Yoel Gonzalez’ second HR.
— Ike Schlabach had his worst start of the season and Morgantown’s (23-15) hitters had a miserable day in a 4-1 loss to Williamsport. Schlabach gave up three runs on eight hits in three and two-thirds innings. He walked two and struck out four. The hitters fanned 16 times and went 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Deon Stafford had the only two hits, going 2-3 with a walk, a double and his fourth HR. He’s now batting 293/356/489. Dylan Busby continued to look disturbingly like Casey Hughston, going 0-4 with three strikeouts. He’s now batting .167 with 23 whiffs in 75 plate appearances.
Tristan Gray: 0-4
Bligh Madris: 0-1, 3 BB
— Bristol (9-29) returned to form, losing to Danville, 3-2. Travis MacGregor had a good start, allowing two runs on four hits in six innings. He walked two and struck out five. The Pirates struck out a dozen times and had just three hits.
