Bradenton remained in Harvey limbo. The GCL Pirates don’t play on Sundays.
— Tyler Glasnow had a good start but Indianapolis (74-59) lost to Columbus, 3-2. Glasnow allowed three hits and two walks, while striking out nine, in six innings. He gave up three runs, two earned, and threw 59 of 91 pitches for strikes. Edgar Santana followed with three scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and fanning four. The Indians had ten hits and four walks, but hit into three double plays and had two runners caught stealing. Erich Weiss was 2-3 with a double, a walk and his sixth HR. Austin Meadows left the game halfway through with a recurrence of his oblique injury. It’s not considered serious, but he missed five games previously and it sounds like he may miss more (sub. req’d) this time.
