Cannonballs coming: West Virginia gets two complete games

— Drew Hutchison threw five shutout innings, and Joey Terdoslavich and Eric Wood both went deep as Indianapolis (76-61) beat Louisville, 6-1. Hutchison gave up three hits and three walks, and struck out three. Terdoslavich and Wood each went 2-4, with Terdoslavich hitting his seventh HR and Wood his 16th. Terdoslavich also drove in three. Erich Weiss, who just won International League player of the week honors, went 3-5 with a double.

Chris Bostick: 1-5
Jacob Stallings: 2-4, 2B
Edgar Santana: IP, H

— Altoona (71-64) went with a Sunday lineup and got Sunday results in a 6-1 loss to Richmond. The Curve, who’ve clinched a playoff berth, remained one game ahead of Bowie, which also lost, for first place. J.T. Brubaker gave up five runs, four earned, on seven hits in three innings. Newly promoted Daniel Zamora threw two scoreless innings, giving up two hits and two walks, and striking out one. Facing a struggling starter who is not a strikeout pitcher, the Curve fanned 14 times.

Jerrick Suiter: 1-3, 2B, BB
Wyatt Mathisen: 2-3, BB

— Bradenton (67-62) lost the first game of its doubleheader to Tampa, 4-3. Starter Logan Sendelbach gave up four runs in two innings. Ty Moore went 3-3 with a double and Kevin Krause 2-3 with two doubles.

Ke’Bryan Hayes: 0-4
Will Craig: 1-3
Stephen Alemais: PH 2B

The Marauders also lost the second game, 7-2. Pedro Vasquez, who was leading the league in ERA a month ago, gave up seven runs on 11 hits in four innings. In his last six starts he has an ERA of 9.95. The Marauders has only four hits. Hayes was 1-2, and Craig and Alemais each 1-3.

— Eduardo Vera took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and ended up with a seven-inning complete game as West Virginia (66-65) won the first game of its doubleheader with Lakewood, 3-2. Vera gave up four hits and walked nobody, while striking out two. He didn’t allow a hit until there was one out in the sixth. The offense came all on longballs. Albert Baur hit his eighth with one aboard and Henrry Rosario hit a solo HR, his second HR at this level. Adrian Valerio was 1-2.

The Power got another complete game in a 2-0 win in game two. Mike Wallace (pictured) went seven, allowing just two hits, walking nobody and striking out four. The win put West Virginia over .500 for the first time all year. Kevin Mahala had a single and a double, and Garrett Brown had an RBI double. Valerio was 0-3.

— Morgantown’s (35-33) bullpen continued its recent habit of blowing late leads in a 3-2 loss to State College. The Black Bears had a 2-0 lead, but gave up single runs in the seventh, eighth and ninth. The bullpen wasted six shutout innings by Ike Schlabach. He gave up just two hits while walking two and striking out three. The offense managed only four hits. Catcher and fourth-round draft pick Jason Delay, just promoted from Bristol, went 0-4. (Evidently Deon Stafford is hurt, although he’s not on the DL.)

— Bristol (16-49) dropped a 5-2 game to Burlington, leaving the Pirates one loss short of 50, which isn’t easy to do with a 68-game schedule. Evan Piechota gave up three runs on eight hits in six innings. Ryan Peurifoy had two hits.

— The GCL Pirates (25-32) scored three in the first, all on a double by Calvin Mitchell, and hung on to beat the Tigers East, 3-2. The Pirates allowed only two hits in the game. Steven Jennings gave up one run on one hit and one walk in three innings. He struck out one. Jason Stoffel faced four hitters in what seems to be a tentative rehab, allowing a hit, a walk and a run. Austin Shields apparently was able to throw some strikes, as he threw three and a third hitless innings, giving up one walk and striking out two. Mitchell finished 1-2 with two walks and Rodolfo Castro went 2-4.

Lolo Sanchez: 0-3, BB
Mason Martin: 1-4, 3 K
