— Indianapolis (2-3) beat Toledo, 9-6. Will Craig, Cole Tucker, Elias Diaz and Bryan Reynolds (pictured) led the offense. Craig and Tucker each went 2-5, Craig with his third longball and Tucker with two doubles. Diaz caught seven innings and went 2-4 with a double. Reynolds went 3-5 with a triple. Eric Wood added his second home run. Rookie Davis struggled in his first start for the Pirates. He gave up five runs on four hits and four walks in three and a third innings, with three strikeouts.

— Altoona (5-1) suffered its first loss, 4-3, to Erie. The Curve couldn’t take advantage of a dozen hits, scoring all their runs on solo home runs. Robbie Glendinning and Mitchell Tolman each hit their first homers, and Hunter Owen his second. James Marvel didn’t follow up his outstanding first start, allowing four runs on eight hits in five and two-thirds innings. Bralin Jackson, Jerrick Suiter and Jason Delay all went 2-4. Bligh Madris was 1-4.

— Bradenton (4-2) lost to Charlotte, 3-2. The Marauders had only four hits. Oneil Cruz drove in both runs with a groundout and his first home run. Cruz went 1-4. Domingo Robles threw five shutout innings to start the game, but gave up a three-run homer in the sixth. He allowed just three hits and a walk in six innings, and fanned six.

— Greensboro (3-3) lost the first game of its doubleheader with Hickory, 3-1, in ten innings. The Grasshoppers got a run in the first on a double by Mason Martin, but couldn’t score again, even in three straight innings with a fake runner on second. Braeden Ogle had a strong season debut, allowing one run on three hits and a walk, while fanning five, over five innings. Joe Jacques threw three perfect innings with four strikeouts. Martin finished 1-4. Jonah Davis started in center and went 0-2, then came out after five innings, which was planned. Rodolfo Castro went 0-1 and came out of the game after being retired at second on a double play, so he may have been hurt sliding.

Connor Kaiser: 1-3, BB
Brett Kinneman: 0-3, BB
Lolo Sanchez: 0-3, CS
Logan Stoelke: 2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, ER, K

Greensboro’s struggles at the plate continued into game two, which they also lost, 4-0. The Grasshoppers had only four hits, all singles, and no walks. Sanchez was 1-1, Martin 1-3, and Kaiser and Kinneman both 0-3. Nick Economos fanned eight, but lasted only three and two-thirds innings. He gave up a run on four hits and three walks.
