Travis Swaggerty


SS Victor Ngoepe was promoted from West Virginia to Greensboro




Indianapolis (49-49) with a 8-3 victory over visiting Durham (59-41)

Starter Cam Vieaux (5-4, 4.01) allowed just two solo homers over six innings, allowing five hits and no walks while striking out seven. Sean Keselica (2.82 ERA in 51 IP) followed with a three inning save where he struck out four.

The Indians scored early and often, all their runs coming off Bulls’ starter Arturo Reyes (10-6, 4.33) in the first five innings.

DH Erik Gonzalez (227/261/364) is starting to hit like he wants to come back to Pittsburgh, going 2-for-5 with a triple and three RBI.

2B Kevin Kramer (265/345/404) was 2-for-4 with a double and CF Jason Martin (257/304/439), who’s been hot of late, had a single, three walks and a stolen base.


Altoona (50-45) drops 7-6 decision in 10 innings at Bowie (53-44)

Altoona did not score off Bowie starter Alex Wells (8-1, 1.83), instead beating up on the bullpen.

Down 5-0, the Curve rallied for four in the seventh and two more in the eighth to take the lead, but the Baysox tied it back up with a run in the bottom of the eighth and then walked it off in the tenth.

Beau Sulser (2.02 ERA in 62 13 IP) made a spot start for Altoona which did not go well, as he allowed four runs in four innings on six hits and no walks, striking out just one.

CF Jared Oliva (283/370/434) was 2-for-5 with his 28th steal and RF Bligh Madris (266/330/388) 2-for-3 with a walk.


Bradenton (51-45) downed 8-3 at Tampa (43-54)

Starter Gavin Wallace (2-5, 4.30) was pummeled for eight runs, one unearned, on eight hits and three walks in five and two thirds innings, including a three-run homer in the second.

CF Travis Swaggerty (247/334/361) was 1-for-3 with a walk, including his seventh homer, and RF Cal Mitchell (259/307/429) had a pair of doubles in four at bats.


Greensboro (59-39) stomped 8-1 at Augusta (53-45)

Starter Alex Manasa (8-3, 3.63) got knocked around for the second straight start, giving up four runs in three innings on eight hits and a walk, five days after surrendering five runs in five innings.

West Virginia (18-16) wins 8-3 at Auburn (15-20)

19th round pick Will Kobos (6.05 ERA in 19 13 IP) had his second straight good start after a rough beginning to his pro career, tossing five scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and a walk while fanning four. Winston Nicacio (2.96 ERA in 24 13 IP) followed with three perfect innings, striking out four.

Ahead 3-0, the Black Bears broke it open with five in the eighth, giving them the cushion to withstand a three-run Auburn rally in the bottom of the ninth.

3B Jared Triolo (215/288/409), LF Matt Gorski (200/233/294) and 2B Cory Wood (250/326/350) each had two hits.

He threw 44 of only 62 pitches for strikes (71%). Yoelvis Reyes (6.46 ERA in 23 23 IP) followed with three scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and one walk while fanning three.

RF Joseivin Medina was 3-for-3 while 3B Aaron Shackelford (287/356/479) was 2-for-4.


GCL Pirates (8-13) hold on for 6-4 win over visiting Orioles (14-6)

20 year old Mario Garcia (2.86 ERA in 34 23 IP), making his first GCL start since being promoted from the DSL Pirates-1, allowed one run in four and two third while allowing two hits and three walks. He struck out two.

Dominican Rookie

Pirates-1 (22-20) prevail 3-1 at Indians (17-23)

Starter Raydel Velette (4.58 ERA in 19 23 IP), who has struggled with control, tossed five scoreless innings, allowing three hits and three walks.
