New, 1 comment

West Virginia was rained out.

— Indianapolis (70-58) lost to Louisville, 4-3. Tyler Glasnow allowed just three hits and two walks, while fanning nine, in six innings. All but two of those runners scored, though, so Glasnow was charged with three runs. He left with the score at 3-2. Indy tied the game in the eighth, but failed to push across the go-ahead run despite having runners at second and third with no outs. They then lost it in the ninth. Brandon Cumpton made his first AAA appearance of the year, retiring all six batters he faced, three on strikes. Erich Weiss went 3-4 with a double. Austin Meadows put in an appearance as a pinch runner.

Kevin Newman: 2-5, 3B
Edwin Espinal: 2-4

— Altoona (67-60) got all of its runs in the fifth inning and beat Hartford, 5-4. Mitch Keller (pictured) had an uneven start that included three walks in the first inning, one with the bases loaded. He ended up going five-plus innings, allowing four runs, two of them unearned. He gave up four hits and four walks, and struck out six. Two of the runs scored after he left. Cole Tucker had a two-run triple and Pablo Reyes a two-run HR, his tenth longball, in the winning rally. Jordan George was 3-4.

Ben Bengtson also drove in three while going 2-4 with a triple and a walk. Ryan Peurifoy was 2-3 with two doubles.

— The GCL Pirates (19-30) had a Bristol-esque game, getting thrashed by the Blue Jays, 14-2. The Pirates seem to be back to using most of their regulars, although Lolo Sanchez didn’t play, and Rodolfo Castro and Victor Ngoepe entered the game as substitutions. Two players started rehab assignments. Hunter Owen played half the game at third and went 0-2. Jason Stoffel threw a scoreless inning, striking out two. Stoffel is a minor league veteran who signed with the Pirates for 2017 but hasn’t pitched all year due to shoulder issues.

Mason Martin: 2-3, BB
Calvin Mitchell: 0-3
Gabriel Brito: 2-3, 2 2B
Castro: 0-2

— The DSL Pirates (35-32) scored three runs in the top of the tenth and then hung on for a 6-5 win over the Astros Orange. Starter Jose Marcano gave up two runs on four hits in five innings. He walked one and fanned six. Matthew Mercedes went 3-6 with a double. Larry Alcime and Williams Calderon each had two hits.
