— Indianapolis (5-6) had a difficult day, beginning with failing to get a hit in the first game of their doubleheader against Syracuse. The Indians went with the Sunday lineup in the game while Syracuse went with a sort-of bullpen game. Four relievers (one is actually a starter, but he threw only three innings) combined to allow Indy just a walk and a hit batsman. After two good starts, Tyler Eppler gave up eight hits and four runs in three innings. The final was 5-0.
Kevin Newman: 0-3
Kevin Kramer: 0-2
Jordan Luplow: 0-3
Josh Smoker: IP, H, BB, 2 K
Indy got five hits in the second game, but still failed to score and lost, 7-0. Alex McRae failed to survive the first inning, getting just two outs and allowing five runs. Jose Osuna went 2-3 with one double and Chris Bostick 2-3 with two doubles. The Indians went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position.
Newman: 0-4 (batting .211)

— Altoona (6-5) ran themselves out of their game with Akron, resulting in a 4-2 loss. The Curve had ten hits, but got four runners thrown out on the bases. They also strategerized themselves out of a scoring chance by having Ke’Bryan Hayes bunt with runners on first and second and no out, only to have the runners stranded. The baserunning tomfoolery and some poor bullpen work wasted a nice start by J.T. Brubaker, who allowed just one run on four hits and a walk in six innings, while fanning eight. He left with a 2-1 lead, but it took Logan Sendelbach two batters to give up a two-run HR. Cole Tucker and Jason Martin each went 2-4, but each contributed to the folly on the bases.
Stephen Alemais: 1-4
Hayes: 1-3, 2B
Logan Hill: 0-3, BB, 2 K (batting .146 with 19 Ks in 41 ABs)
— Bradenton (8-5) got annihilated by Palm Beach, 11-1. A.J. Schugel made his second rehab appearance, throwing a scoreless first inning while walking one and striking out one. James Marvel followed, allowing three gopher balls and five runs in five innings. The Marauders managed only six singles, three of them by Alfredo Reyes, and whiffed 14 times.
Jared Oliva: 1-4
Adrian Valerio, Bligh Madris, Hunter Owen: all 0-4

— West Virginia (7-6) broke a 1-1 tie with four runs in the sixth and hung on for a 5-4 win over Charleston. After two rough starts, Domingo Robles (pictured) allowed just a run on two hits over six innings. He walked none, fanned nine and needed only 69 pitches. Cal Mitchell, Deon Stafford and Oneil Cruz each had two hits, with the first two collecting doubles.
