Indianapolis placed LHP Blake Weiman on the 7-day injured list.




Indianapolis (45-45) trounced 9-2 at Columbus (56-34)

Indians pitchers struck out fifteen Columbus batters while allowing fifteen hits and nine runs.

Eduardo Vera (5-7, 6.27) allowed all nine runs in just one and two thirds innings on nine hits and a walk.

Yefry Ramirez (4.76 ERA in 39 23 IP) struck out four in two and a third, while walking four. Geoff Hartlieb (3.08 ERA in 26 13 IP) had four whiffs in two innings and J.B. Shuck finished it off, whiffing three of the five batters he faced in the eighth inning. Shuck has yet to allow a run in five appearances.

1B Will Craig (248/329/458) had his batting average drop below .250 as he whiffed three times on an 0-for-4 night. He’s gone 9-for-66 with one home run in his last 18 games.


Altoona (48-39) squeaks out 1-0 win at Erie (45-41)

The Curve collected only three hits and fanned eighteen times against Erie pitching, but DH Logan Hill’s (256/338/430) solo homer in the fourth, his seventh of the year, was all the needed to back Brandon Waddell’s (3-3, 5.40) shutout pitching.

For the second straight start, the left-handed Waddell sent six innings without allowing a run, both times issuing just one walk while fanning seven. In five starts since being demoted from Indianapolis, he has a 1.44 ERA.

Each of the first four batters in the Altoona lineup struck out three times. Erie left-hander Tarik Skubal (4-6, 2.39), who fanned eleven Curve batters five days ago, this time got ten in five innings along with one walk.


Bradenton (48-42) falls 8-4 to visiting Fort Myers (50-40)

The Marauders took a 4-0 first inning lead but Brad Case (9-3, 2.82) gave up a two-run homer as part of a four-run third and then a solo shot an inning later to give Fort Myers the lead they’d never relinquish.

Case finished with seven hits and two walks allowed in six innings, to go with the five runs.

Three of Bradenton’s four first inning runs came on 1B Mason Martin’s (256/356/565) first home run since being promoted, and 24th of the year along with 87 RBI.


Greensboro (56-34) downed 9-7 by visiting Charleston WV (47-45)

Osvaldo Bido (10-5, 3.67) gave up three runs in five and a third on five hits and two walks.

Up 5-3 after sixth, the Grasshoppers saw West Virginia score six times in the seventh and eighth.

Jack Herman’s (240/330/542) solo homer, his eighth, as part of a two-run Greensboro comeback effort in the eighth that fell short.

CF Fabricio Macias (276/333/405) was 3-for-5.

Short Season A

West Virginia (15-11) defeats visiting Aberdeen (13-13) 3-1 in 7 innings

3B Jared Triolo (240/301/480) had a two-run double in the first and DH Blake Sabol (246/372/446) added a solo homer in the sixth, his second, for all the scoring as the Black Bears went with a bullpen game.

Santiago Florez (2.76 ERA in 16 13 IP) allowed four hits and a walk in four and a third innings while striking out five.


GCL Pirates (7-8) on short end of 7-1 decision to visiting Orioles (11-3)

Starter Wilkin Ramos (7.59 ERA in 10 23 IP) gave up four runs in three and a third on five hits and a walk.

The offense managed five hits and five walks while fanning eleven times.

Dominican Rookie

Pirates-1 (18-18) edged 5-4 at Rangers-1 (27-8)

Starter Raydel Velette (6.14 ERA in 14 23 IP) could allowed many more than just two runs as he surrendered seven hits and three walks in only three and two thirds innings.

Cleanup hitter 1B Darwin Baez (298/352/456) provided most of the offense with a 4-for-5 effort in which he drove in three runs.

Pirates-2 (30-6) victorious 6-2 over visiting Giants-2 (15-21)

The Pirates-2 have the DSL’s highest powered offense, scoring an average of 8.3 runs per game with a 320/400/450 composite batting line (while the Pirates-1 are 7th of 42 teams in scoring), but they also have the third lowest team ERA at 2.83, outscoring their opponents 300 to 150 in 36 games.

In Friday’s game, 17 year old right-hander Miguel Toribio (0.65 ERA in 27 23 IP) ran his record to 5-0, allowing two unearned runs in five innings in his first start of the year. He gave up five hits and no walks while punching out nine batters.
