The weather gods took pity on hapless Bristol and zapped their game.
— Tyler Glasnow continued zapping AAA hitters as Indianapolis (65-53) beat Syracuse, 2-1. Glasnow scuffled a little early — some bozo even homered off him — but he ended up going seven, needing 97 pitches, allowing five hits, walking just one and fanning 11. Glasnow now has 103 strikeouts in AAA, in 68.2 IP. Indy had plenty of hits, as Kevin Newman went 3-4 with a double and Elias Diaz 3-3 with a walk. Newman is now batting .314 in AAA.

— Altoona (60-56) lost to Trenton, 6-5. Alex McRae got hit around a lot, giving up all the runs on 11 hits in just four and two-thirds innings. He walked two and struck out three. The Curve had only five hits. Anderson Feliz had a triple and three RBIs, and Wyatt Mathisen hit his fourth HR.
Cole Tucker: 0-3
Jerrick Suiter: 1-4, 2B
Jin-De Jhang: 1-4
— Bradenton (62-52) lost to Charlotte, 6-1. Pedro Vasquez retired the first 13 batters he faced, but things quickly came unglued for him in the fifth. He gave up a one-out walk, then couldn’t get the last out. Four straight two-out hits produced three runs. Vasquez showed a fastball that was 93 consistently in his first inning, 91-92 afterward. He throws a curve and change, and controls all three pitches very well, but none is a swing-and-miss pitch. In the end he allowed only four hits and a walk in five innings, but it resulted in three runs. He struck out one. The Marauders hit a lot of line drives at fielders, but got little offense out of it. Mitchell Tolman and Casey Hughston each had two hits.

Will Craig : 0-3, BB
Stephen Alemais: 0-3, BB

Gavin Wallace gave up two runs on four hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out three.

Hector Garcia: IP, 2 K, Sv
— The GCL Pirates (14-27) lost to the Braves, 6-3. Max Kranick started and pitched better than his stat line, which was three and two-thirds innings, five hits, two unearned runs, two walks and four strikeouts. Kranick ran into his pitch count in the fourth, but was only prevented from finishing it by a muffed flyball by Jeremias Portorreal. Kranick threw 88-92, losing velocity as the start went on. He threw a curve with late, sharp break. Austin Shields followed and couldn’t throw strikes. He walked six in an inning and two thirds, leading to four runs even though he allowed just one hit. Mason Martin and Portorreal each went 2-4.
Lolo Sanchez: 0-4
Rodolfo Castro: 1-4
Calvin Mitchell: 0-4
