Cannonballs Coming: Mason Martin and Dylan Busby keep hitting homers

Altoona was off.

— Indianapolis (10-9) lost to Gwinnett, 6-2. Eduardo Vera took 80 pitches to get through four innings, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks. He struck out three. Clay Holmes had a rough outing, walking four of the five batters he faced; the other hit into a double play, so Holmes got credit for two-thirds of an inning. He was charged with two runs, both scoring after Tyler Lyons came on. The Indians’ lineup barely resembled the one they had a week ago. Ke’Bryan Hayes was 1-4 and a walk, and Will Craig 0-4 with a walk. Craig is now in a 1-for-24 slump. Nick Franklin went 2-2 with his first home run and two walks. Montana DuRapau retired all six batters he faced, striking out three.

— Bradenton (13-8) lost to Daytona, 3-2. Domingo Robles gave up three runs in the first inning, on a home run by Reds’ first rounder Jonathan India, but he ended up lasting seven. He allowed four hits and three walks, and struck out five. The Marauders went with a lot of subs; all the offense came on a two-run home run by Dylan Busby, his sixth homer. Busby fanned his other three times up. Jose Osuna played first and went 1-4. Cal Mitchell was 1-4 with a double.

— Mason Martin (pictured connecting for home run #6) homered in his fifth straight game as Greensboro (12-8) beat Hagerstown, 6-3. The homer was his sixth, and he went 1-4 with a walk. Greensboro got only two hits off the Hagerstown starter (Washington’s #26 prospect, Tomas Alastre), but drew six walks off him, including one with the bases loaded. Nick Economos gave up three runs over five innings, on four hits and four walks, with four strikeouts. Conner Loeprich followed with three scoreless innings in relief, giving up three hits and striking out two. Patrick Dorrian went 2-3 with a double and a walk.

Lolo Sanchez: 1-3, HBP
