All Hands on Deck: Pedro Vasquez shines again

Pedro Vasquez



The Pawtucket at Indianapolis game was postponed.


Altoona (34-31) wins 5-1 at Binghamton (33-29)

The Rumble Ponies’ Andres Jimenez tripled to elad off the game and scored one batter later on a groundout, snapping Pedro Vasquez’ streak of three straight starts without allowing a run - but that was the only run that the 23 year old right-hander Vasquez (7-2, 3.14) would surrender on the night, as he allowed only three singles and a walk over the remainder of his seven innings of work, striking out four. He threw 60 of 92 pitches for strikes.

In two of those last three starts, on May 30 for Indianapolis vs Charlotte and his last time out on June 9 vs Akron, Vasquez only allowed one hit in six innings. Over that stretch, he’s allowed one run on three walks and eleven hits in 25 innings, fanning 23.

The Curve tied the game at one in the fourth when 3B Hunter Owen (300/375/583) hit his 15th home run, then got two more in the sixth on RF Bligh Madris’ (249/314/362) sixth long ball of the season.

Altoona put five runs on the scoreboard despite going down on strikes fifteen times.


Bradenton was not scheduled to play.


Greensboro (43-25) blanked Kannapolis (28-39) 4-0 on the road.

23 year old right-hander Oswaldo Bido (8-4, 3.06) had his second scoreless outing in his last three starts, allowing just four singles while striking out seven.

Over his last three starts, Bido has allowed two runs on eight hits and four walks in 19 innings, while fanning 22.

The Grasshoppers got on the board in the first when CF Lolo Sanchez (303/381/448) led off with a line drive single to center then one out later came around when 1B Mason Martin (262/352/579) slammed his 18th homer of the year to right field. They added two more in the ninth on SS Connor Kaiser’s solo homer, his fourth, and a DH Patrick Dorrian double which scored C Grant Koch, who had singled.

In Martin’s last 123 games, including Bristol last year, he’s hit 28 homers and driven in 102 while drawing 74 walks and fanning 175 times.

Short Season

Morgantown (1-1) prevailed 6-3 over visiting Mahoning Valley (1-1)

Starter Jesus Valles, a 21 year old right-hander who debuted in the Dominican Summer League last year, gave up six hits and two walks in four and a third innings, but the only runs he allowed where on a pair of solo homers in the fourth.

Down 2-1 the Black Bears then plated five as they scored in each of the sixth, seventh and eighth. 2B Kyle Mottice and 3B Dean Lockery, who had both started the season at higher levels, each got two hits. Jonah Davis walked three times.

Dominican Rookie

Pirates-1 (5-8) falls 7-2 to visiting Indians (6-7)

Pirates pitchers walked ten while their batters could only manage five hits.

Pirates-2 (11-2) keep on trucking with a 10-4 win over Tigers-2

This Pirates team banged out fifteen hits, as RF Jose Berroa (333/421/394) had three while CF Jauri Custodio (300/352/460), DH Rodolfo Nolasco (326/347/522), SS Dariel Lopez (343/351/486) and LF Rayber Romero had two each.
