Cannonballs coming: Regular season ends for all but one affiliate

All the affiliates’ regular seasons are now over except for Morgantown. Indianapolis and Altoona are in the playoffs.

— Indianapolis (79-63) lost to Toledo, 7-4. Drew Hutchison struggled, giving up five runs on five hits and four walks in five innings, while striking out three. Barrett Barnes put a good finish on a largely lost season, going 3-4 with a double and his first HR. Edwin Espinal went 3-5, finishing with a .323 average in AAA. He’ll be a free agent after the season if the Pirates don’t add him to the 40-man roster. Gift Ngoepe hit his sixth HR. Jacob Stallings had a pinch-hit single to finish the AAA season with a .301 average. Kevin Newman was 2-5.

— Mitchell Tolman (pictured) hit a three-run, walkoff HR in his second AA game as Altoona (74-66) beat Harrisburg in 11 innings, 7-4. The Curve had earlier clinched their division when Bowie lost. J.T. Brubaker gave up two runs on five hits and two walks in six innings. He fanned six. Catcher Tomas Morales got the win with a scoreless inning in relief. It was his second mound appearance in less than a week. Jordan George was 3-4 with a double. Cole Tucker went 0-4 with two walks. Michael Suchy hit his fourth HR and Jonathan Schwind his second, the latter as a pinch hitter.

— West Virginia (69-67) beat Delmarva, 3-1, but was still eliminated from the playoffs when Greensboro won. Eduardo Vera gave up one run over seven innings. He allowed seven hits, walked nobody and struck out four. Albert Baur went 3-5 with a double. Hunter Owen was 1-3 with a two-run double and two walks. Adrian Valerio was 0-5.

— Morgantown (39-34) beat Williamsport, 3-1. Ike Schlabach had a strong finish to a breakout season, allowing one run on four hits and a walk in five innings. He struck out five. Jared Oliva and Raul Siri each went 2-4 with a double. Bligh Madris, Tristan Gray and Deon Stafford all went 1-3, and Dylan Busby 1-4. Joel Cesar struck out two in the ninth to get the save.
