Cannonballs coming: strong start for Oddy Nunez

He got hurt by a two-out error on Jordan Luplow that led to three unearned runs in the fourth. He’d allowed an earned run earlier, so he gave up four runs in all. Kingham allowed seven hits and two walks, and struck out eight. Starling Marte went 2-3 and got hit by a pitch. Eric Wood was 2-4 with three RBIs. He drove in the go-ahead runs in the eighth with a triple. Danny Ortiz drove in Indy’s other three runs.
