The DSL Pirates’ final game of the season was rained out. They finished 36-34. Bradenton had a doubleheader rained out.
— Nick Kingham’s very strong stretch of six starts got rudely interrupted by a five-run first inning, but Indianapolis beat Columbus anyway, 11-10. Kingham simply got hammered in the first, then threw two scoreless innings before getting knocked out in the fourth. He finished with eight runs allowed on eight hits and a walk in three and two-thirds innings. He didn’t strike out anybody. The Indy offense, though, responded with a nine-run second inning. Jacob Stallings continued his bid to keep his roster spot, going 3-4 with a double. Eric Wood had a double and his 15th HR in four ABs, and drove in three.

— Altoona (70-61) reclaimed a two-game lead in their division by beating Bowie, 4-3. Brandon Waddell allowed one run on six hits over five and two-thirds innings. He walked two and struck out four. The Curve took a 4-1 lead into the ninth, but Tate Scioneaux allowed two runs and had to be rescued by Luis Heredia, who got the last two outs. In 23 games since the beginning of June, Heredia has an ERA of 2.08. He’s allowed only 23 hits in 34.2 IP, although control has still been an issue. Anderson Feliz was 3-4 with a double and Cole Tucker was 2-5. Tucker is 11-for-30 (.367) in his last eight games.
Jerrick Suiter: 1-3
Wyatt Mathisen: 1-3
