— Nick Kingham may have been a bit let down after his first two major league games, as he had just an okay outing in Indianapolis’ (15-15) 4-3 loss to Louisville. Kingham gave up three runs on seven hits in six innings. He walked three and struck out three. The Indians had only six hits, including Pablo Reyes’ first AAA home run.

Kevin Newman: 1-4, 2B
Chris Bostick: 1-4, 2B
Austin Meadows: grounded out as PH
Kevin Kramer: struck out as PH

— Mitch Keller had another rough start as Altoona (16-14) lost to Bowie, 8-2. Keller gave up six runs, four of them earned, on nine hits in four and a third innings. He walked three and struck out only one. The Curve managed only six hits, all singles, and are now batting just .226 as a team. They’re third from last in the Eastern League in slugging, next-to-last in OBP and last in HRs. Jason Martin, as usual, showed the most signs of life, going 2-4.
