TRIPLE-A: INDIANAPOLIS INDIANS
Game Time: 7.04pm

Roansy Contreras didn’t have an especially good game and Indianapolis (16-16) blew a one-run lead in the ninth, but the Indians still got back to .500 with a 7-5, ten-inning win over Charlotte. Contreras lasted four and a third and gave up only two hits, but he walked three and allowed three runs. Cam Vieaux gave up no hits over an inning and two-thirds, but allowed an unearned run on an error by Oneil Cruz, who had two in the game. Much of the offense came from Cal Mitchell, who hit a pair of home runs, giving him five on the season. Indy had a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the ninth, but Yerry De Los Santos, in his second inning, gave up a solo home run. Mitchell hit the first pitch of the tenth, though, for a towering, two-run bomb that proved to be the last of the scoring. Indy had only six hits, with Mitchell and Mason Martin each getting two. Canaan Smith-Njigba drew three walks and Jason Delay had an RBI double.
DOUBLE-A: ALTOONA CURVE
Game Time: 6:00pm
Starting Pitcher: Zach Matson
- Final Line: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K
- Matt Fraizer 0-3, BB
- Jared Triolo 1-4
- Blake Sabol 2-4, 2B

- Travis MacGregor 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 K
- Colin Selby 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K
Altoona (14-17) was getting no-hit going into the seventh inning, but it was their own pitchers who stole the show in a ten-inning, 2-1 win over Somerset. For whatever reason, the Pirates seem to be going with an opener frequently in the minors, then bringing in an ostensible starter. In this game, Zach Matson started off with two scoreless innings, then Travis MacGregor threw four. He gave up just two hits and a walk, and fanned eight for his best outing of the season. Colin Selby followed that by fanning five in two innings, while allowing just a walk. Meanwhile, Altoona didn’t get its first hit until Blake Sabol led off the bottom of the seventh with a double. He came around for the game’s first run on a wild pitch and a ground out. The score stayed 1-0 until the top of the ninth, when Enmanuel Mejia allowed a double and an RBI single after getting the first two batters. In the tenth, Will Kobos struck out two while stranding the free runner, bringing the total Ks for the Altoona staff to 19. In the bottom half, Andres Alvarez and Aaron Shackelford each singled to bring in the freebie and end it. The Curve had only six hits, two of them by Sabol. Lolo Sanchez drew three walks. Henry Davis didn’t play, as he’s still getting stretched out or something.
HIGH-A: GREENSBORO GRASSHOPPERS
Game Time: 7.00pm
Starting Pitcher: Cam Junker
- Final Line: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
- Maikol 0-3, HBP
- Endy Rodriguez 0-4
Greensboro’s (13-17) offense went missing in a 3-0 loss to Hickory. Another reliever, Cam Junker, started the game and threw two perfect innings. Sean Sullivan, normally a starter, threw the next four innings and allowed three runs. Ricky DeVito and Tyler Samaniego each put up a scoreless inning. There’s nothing to say about the Hoppers’ offense; they had two hits, singles by Matt Gorski and Ernny Ordonez. They never got a runner past first and two of their six runners were wiped out by double plays.
