Cannonballs Coming: Mason Martin has three hits

— Indianapolis (10-7) lost to Gwinnett, 5-2. Jake Elmore provided most of the offense, getting three of the Indians’ seven hits. Kevin Newman started his rehab, playing center and going 1-4 with a walk. Alex McRae gave up seven hits and four runs over four and two-thirds innings. Ke’Bryan Hayes was 2-5 and Will Craig 0-3 with a walk. Craig is 0-for-19 in his last five games.

Kevin Kramer: 0-3
Geoff Hartlieb: IP, H, R, K
Dovydas Neverauskas: IP, K

— Altoona (8-10) lost to Harrisburg, 5-4. Cam Vieaux started off with four shutout innings, allowing only one hit, but things came apart in the fifth. Vieaux gave up an RBI single to the opposing pitcher, then got a double play grounder that would have gotten him out of the inning, but Stephen Alemais threw wide to first. A single and a three-run home run followed. Vieaux finished with four runs, five hits and two walks allowed, with one strikeout. The four runs were a relative explosion for the Curve, who even with this game have scored only 14 runs in their last eight. The Curve still struck out 16 times, 11 of them in five and two-thirds innings against Erick Fedde, a former first rounder who seems to be going the wrong way after splitting last season between the majors and AAA. Hunter Owen went 2-5 with a triple and his fourth home run. Bligh Madris was 2-5.

Jared Oliva: 0-5
Stephen Alemais: 1-5, 3 K
Yeudy Garcia: 2 IP, 4 K

— Bradenton (12-7) got Oneil Cruz back but managed only three hits in a 2-1 loss to Fort Myers. Max Kranick pitched well, giving up two runs and four hits over six innings. He walked none and fanned five. Cruz went 1-4 with three strikeouts.

Travis Swaggerty: 0-2, 2 BB
Cal Mitchell: 0-4
Luis Escobar: 2 IP, H, BB, 2 K
Joel Cesar: IP, BB, 3 K

— A grand slam by Zack Kone capped a five-run tenth as Greensboro (10-8) beat Lexington, 7-2. The home run was Kone’s first, and he went 0-4 with three strikeouts otherwise. Alex Manasa gave up two runs on four hits and no walks over six innings. He struck out four. Nick Mears got the win with two scoreless innings, giving up a hit and a walk, and fanning three. Mears has fanned 16 in 9.2 IP so far. Mason Martin (pictured) went 3-4 with a double, a walk and his fourth home run, which I’m pretty sure means he missed a cycle by a triple. He’s 7-for-13 in his last three games.

Lolo Sanchez: 0-5
Connor Kaiser: 1-4, BB
Jonah Davis: 0-3, BB (batting .065 with 18 K in 31 AB)
