MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates-Media Day Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

Altoona was rained out.

— Indianapolis (9-7) shut out Syracuse for the second straight day, 4-0. Tyler Eppler (pictured) gave up two hits and two walks over six innings, while striking out five. A.J. Schugel threw two innings and Johnny Hellweg, who has yet to be scored upon, pitched the ninth. Kevin Kramer was 3-4 with a double.

Austin Meadows: 1-4, 2B
Jordan Luplow: 0-3, BB
Jacob Stallings: 1-4

— Bradenton (11-8) got a good start from Oddy Nunez, but lost to Tampa, 4-3. Nunez went six innings, giving up four hits and two runs. He walked nobody and fanned six. Half of Tampa’s six hits came from Adam Lind, who’s evidently starting to work his way back to the majors. Alfredo Reyes went 2-3 with his second home run for the Marauders. Tyler Gaffney went 1-2 with two hit batsmen, giving him seven in 13 games. Bligh Madris had a rough day, going 0-5 with three strikeouts and leaving the tying run on third to end the game.

Adrian Valerio: 1-5
Hunter Owen: 0-3
Bo Schultz: IP, BB, K

— Domingo Robles had his second straight strong start, but West Virginia (10-8) lost to Rome, 2-0. Robles threw five shutout innings, allowing two hits and two walks, and striking out seven. Adam Oller followed and retired 11 of the next 12 hitters, but with two out in the ninth he gave up a walk and a homer. The Power had only four hits, half of them by Ryan Peurifoy. Their 3-4-5 hitters — Deon Stafford, Mason Martin and Dylan Busby — combined to go 0-for-12 with eight strikeouts.
