Pablo Reyes
Austin Friedline/


Pirates RHP Keone Kela started a rehabilitation assignment at Indianapolis.

Bradenton activated RHP Ryan Valdes from the injured list. He’d been out since June 19 with a right shoulder strain.

Bradenton placed 2B Raul Siri on the 7-day injured list. He’d been hitting 246/346/391 in 22 games between Greensboro and Bradenton.

C John Bormann was promoted from West Virginia to Bradenton.




Indianapolis (46-45) 17-5 winner at Columbus (56-35)

On Friday, Indians pitchers struck out fifteen Columbus batters while also allowing fifteen hits. The teams reversed their roles on Saturday, as sixteen Indianapolis batters went down on strikes between collecting fifteen hits and scoring seventeen times.

Indianapolis starter James Marvel (10-5, 3.23) took a two-hit, two-walk shutout into the fifth, extending his Triple-A scoreless streak to eleven innings, but in the fifth his command escaped him. Marvel made it to a two out, two on, 0-2 count without a run scoring, but a roller through the right side scored one and after the second walk of the inning another roller scored a pair, then on Marvel’s 36th pitch of the inning a ringing double to right center brought in two more, ending his night and his string of five consecutive games of seven or more innings.

Montana DuRapau (2.67 ERA in 30 13 IP) entered, and out of the six batters he faced, two walked and four went down on strikes.

Keone Kela then made his first rehab appearance and was strong, striking out the first two batters before the third liften a lazy fly to center.

By the time Marvel faltered, he’d already been staked to a 9-0 lead. CF Pablo Reyes (261/313/507) blasted a pair of two-run homers, giving him seven on the year.

Rehabbing RF Gregory Polanco (246/377/368) and LF Kevin Kramer (272/356/418) each drove in four runs on a pair of doubles and 3B Ke’Bryan Hayes (247/337/403) had a single and his fifth homer of the season.

1B Will Craig (244/323/449) was the only member of the lineup to not collect a hit, going 0-for-6 with four strikeouts, leaving him 0-for-10 with seven whiffs in the last two games.


Altoona (49-39) wins 10-7 at Erie (45-42)

Cody Bolton (6-4, 2.72) continued to struggle in his third start with Altoona. After posting a 1.61 ERA in twelve starts with Bradenton, suffering just one home run Bolton has allowed a 7.53 ERA in Double-A, with four long balls.

Al the runs off Bolton came on a three-run homer in the second and a solo shot in the third. In five innings, he allowed five five hits and two walks while striking out four.

Still, Bolton left with a 5-4 lead that was extended to 7-4 when the Curve scored a pair in the fifth, but Erie tied the scored off Yeudy Garcia (5.93 ERA in 41 IP) with three in the sixth. Those were the last runs to score until DH Logan Hill (255/335/436) blasted a three-run homer in the top of the tenth, his eighth and second in two days, to give Altoona the win.

CF Jared Oliva (270/358/407) continued his hitting with a 3-for-5 night where he drove in five runs. 1B Jerrick Suiter (241/289/319) also had three hits, including his fourth homer of the year.


Bradenton (49-42) comes from behind, downing visiting Fort Myers (50-41) 6-5 in 11 innings

Down a run in the bottom of the eleventh, LF Lucas Tancas (269/321/395) ripped his third hit of the game, a bases loaded double to the wall in right center, scoring a pair to walk it off and give him five RBI in the game.

Gavin Wallace (2-4, 3.67) started and allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out three.

Reliever Nick Mears (2.95 ERA in 36 23 IP) gave up a pair of runs in the top of the ninth to give Fort Myers the lead, but Bradenton sent the game to extras when C Deon Stafford (232/335/387) banged a one-out homer to left, his sixth.


Greensboro (56-35) drops 10-8 score to visiting Charleston WV (48-45)

Starter Steven Jennings (5-7, 5.13) was hit hard, surrendering five runs on eight hits and two walks in four and two thirds innings. He struck out four.

Cam Alldred (4.69 ERA in 40 13 IP) followed with four more runs in an inning and two thirds, both pitchers roughed up in a six run fifth for West Virginia.

The Grasshoppers outhit their opponents sixteen to fourteen, and had tied the score at 8-8 after six, but could not score over the final three innings.

RF Jonah Davis (186/293/346) had three hits, including his sixth homer. Since June 30 he’s hit 17-for-51.

3B Michael Gretler (224/306/313) had two doubles and a single, and CF Fabricio Macias (281/334/411) and 2B Ji-hwan Bae (313/401/398) also had three hits apiece.

Short Season A

West Virginia (15-13) falls 3-1 at Brooklyn (15-13)

Will Kobos (8.16 ERA in 14 13 IP) had his best start of four, allowing two runs in five innings without a walk, but gave up seven hits while striking out five.

The Black Bears managed just five hits and five walks while going down on strikes fifteen times. DH Kyle Wilkie (196/297/268) and RF Matt Fraizer (258/314/355) each had a pair of hits.

Advanced Rookie

Bristol (12-12) blanked 2-0 at Pulaski (14-9)

Right-hander Tahnaj Thomas (4.41 ERA in 16 13 IP) was dominant, allowing three hits and no walks with eight strikeouts in five innings, but a solo homer was the only blemish that tagged him with a loss as his teammates could only muster one hit in his support.

In his last three starts, the 20 year old Thomas has allowed three runs in 14 23 innings, with one walk and twenty strikeouts.


GCL Pirates (7-9) fail to score in 3-0 loss at Orioles (12-3)

Continuing the lack of offense in the short season leagues, the Pirates fail to score while collecting just two hits and two walks.

Dominican Rookie

No games scheduled.
