— Tyler Glasnow had a good start but got little support as Indianapolis (68-55) lost to Buffalo, 4-1. Glasnow gave up just four hits and a walk in six and two-thirds innings, but that resulted in three runs, one of which scored after he was out. He fanned ten. The Indians had just six hits. Austin Meadows went 0-5 for the second straight game.
Jordan Luplow: 1-5
Chris Bostick: 1-3, BB
— Mitch Keller pitched well for Altoona (63-59) but he also got no help in a 2-0 loss to Portland. Keller gave up the two runs in six innings, allowing four hits and two walks. He struck out eight. The Curve had just five hits, three of them by Pablo Reyes, who’s been the bulk of the Altoona offense lately.
Cole Tucker: 0-4
Jerrick Suiter: 1-2, BB

Mitchell Tolman: 0-4, BB
Will Craig: 1-4
— West Virginia (58-61) got blown out by Lexington, 9-0. The Power had just two hits. Eduardo Vera, who seems to be running out of gas as the season goes along, allowed just one run over the first five innings, but gave up four in the sixth. He was charged with nine hits and two walks allowed, but did strike out eight.
Adrian Valerio: 0-4
Oneil Cruz: 1-3, 2B, BB

— Morgantown (33-22) blanked State College, 3-0. Gavin Wallace threw five innings, allowing three hits and a walk, and striking out three. The Black Bears’ #3-6 hitters (Deon Stafford, Dylan Busby, Tristan Gray and Bligh Madris) combined to go 0-for-15, but the rest of the lineup was 10-for-16. Lucas Tancas went 3-3 with a double and his fourth HR.
Chris Sharpe: 2-3

— My wife and I sometimes talk about how the media, when they report on disasters, seem to get off on body counts. I don’t get off on body counts. Consequently, I don’t like summarizing Bristol games. Yes, Bristol (11-41) lost again, this time 11-1 to Elizabethton. Putative prospect Travis MacGregor got torched for seven runs, all earned, in three innings. The hitters, as usual, reached double figures in whiffs.
— The GCL Pirates had their game with the Yankees East suspended with two outs in the top of the seventh and the score 2-2. Shane Baz (pictured) threw three scoreless innings, allowing a hit and two walks, and striking out one. Rodolfo Castro was 1-3 with his fifth HR. Mason Martin was 1-3 with a double.
— The DSL Pirates had their game with the Rangers1 suspended in the third inning with the Pirates trailing, 5-1. The game probably won’t be resumed because the teams don’t meet again, so the stats will be wiped out.
