Morgantown was rained out.

— #FreePabloReyes came up a double short of a cycle as Indianapolis (61-50) beat Toledo, 12-7. Reyes went 4-5, with the home run being his eighth in AAA. He’s now batting 305/349/459, but unfortunately doesn’t have a beard. Kevin Newman also came up one hit short of a cycle; he went 3-5 with a double and a triple. Ryan Lavarnway went 3-4 with two doubles, and seems to be doing a pretty good job of trying to revive his career. He’s now batting 297/386/510. Wyatt Mathisen had a grand slam, his sixth home run in AAA. Jason Martin got left out of the fun, going 0-5. Starter Brandon Waddell lasted only four and a third innings, giving up six runs, five earned. Two of the runs scored after Tanner Anderson came on. Jesus Liranzo threw the last two innings, allowing no runs on a hit and a walk, with one strikeout.

— Altoona (58-49) scored six times in the fourth and held on to beat Akron, 6-4. Logan Hill went 2-3 and Will Craig 2-4, and each drove in a pair. That gives Craig 88 RBIs on the season. Arden Pabst hit a two-run home run, his first homer in AA. Eduardo Vera had a shaky start but got through five and two-thirds innings. He gave up three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five. Cole Tucker and Ke’Bryan Hayes each went 1-4, and Bryan Reynolds 0-3 with a walk.

— Bradenton (49-54) scored five runs in the first inning, but gave up six in the eighth to blow a 6-3 lead and went on to lose to Clearwater, 9-6. Dario Agrazal, rehabbing after missing two months, threw five shutout innings, allowing two hits and no walks, and striking out two. A.J. Schugel made his first appearance since early May, but got bombed for three runs and five hits in two-thirds of an inning. Deivy Mendez and Angel German then combined on the eighth inning meltdown. Bligh Madris had a grand slam, his eighth home run of the year. Adrian Valerio was 1-4 with a walk and Jared Oliva 0-5. Hunter Owen was 3-5 with a double.

— Max Kranick had a strong start as West Virginia (55-51) beat Augusta, 6-2. Kranick allowed one run over six innings. He gave up just three hits and a walk, and fanned eight while throwing 57 of 82 pitches for strikes. Lolo Sanchez went 2-4 and Oneil Cruz 1-4 with his 14th home run. Cal Mitchell was 1-4.

— Like several teams in the farm system, Bristol (18-23) is having a lot of trouble holding late leads and the bug struck again tonight. The Pirates took a 7-1 lead in the sixth, but eventually gave up two in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game. They got one run in the tenth but failed to add any more despite have runners on second and third with no out, and then gave up two in the bottom of the tenth to lose, 9-8, to Kingsport. Bristol had only six hits, but drew a dozen walks. Jonah Davis was 1-3 with a double and three walks, Mason Martin 0-3 with two walks, and Sherten Apostel 0-2 with two walks. Dean Lockery and Brendt Citta each had two hits. Steven Jennings gave up three runs on four hits and four walks, while fanning seven, in six innings.

— The GCL Pirates (17-19) beat the Tigers West, 8-2. Steven Kraft had a big day, going 5-5 with two doubles. Ji-Hwan Bae and Samuel Inoa each went 3-5; Bae had two doubles and Inoa two triples. Inoa is batting 317/344/583, albeit in only 17 games. Jean Eusebio was 1-3 with a double. Santiago Florez threw five shutout innings, allowing only one hit. He walked three and struck out three.

— Six different players had two hits as the DSL Pirates1 (25-28) beat the Indians/Brewers, 9-1. Yoyner Fajardo (19) and Shendrik Apostel (18) each went 2-5 with a double. Jommer Hernandez (17) and Daniel Rivero (17) were each 2-4 with a double and a walk. Norkis Marcos (17) and Randy Romero (18) were each 2-5. Juan Pie (17) was 1-3 with a double and two walks. Starlyn Reynoso (21) went five innings without allowing a run or a hit. He walked three and struck out four.

— The DSL Pirates2 (20-34) lost to the Tigers2, 10-4. Edgar Barrios (18) was 3-5 and Angel Basabe (17) 2-5 with a triple.
