Some struggling hitters came through tonight, but Matt Gorski didn’t go deep. Bradenton was rained out and will try to play two tomorrow.
TRIPLE-A: INDIANAPOLIS INDIANS
Game Time: 7:05pm
Starting Pitcher: Trey McGough
- Final Line: 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
- Ji-Hwan Bae 3-4, HR (4)
- Kevin Newman 1-3, 2B
- Cal Mitchell 1-4
- Mason Martin 1-4, HR (7)
- Canaan Smith-Njigba 1-4, 2B

Indianapolis (20-18) beat Toledo, 5-2. Travis Swaggerty had a much-needed sort of day, with a triple and his second longball of the year. That added 95 point to his OPS. Ji-Hwan Bae had three hits, including his fourth home run. Mason Martin added a two-run shot, his seventh homer. Kevin Newman continued his rehab as DH, hitting a double in three times up. Canaan Smith-Njigba also had a double. Cole Tucker’s apparent slide into obscurity continued, as he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. Trey McGough had the sort of start you don’t see much any more, throwing four shutout innings with no walks or strikeouts. Cam Alldred followed with two shutout innings and Yerry De Los Santos retired six straight for the save, striking out half of them. In between, Aaron Fletcher gave up the two runs, which is fitting if you recall what happened in the Pirates’ game tonight.
DOUBLE-A: ALTOONA CURVE
Game Time: 6:00pm
Starting Pitcher: Mike Burrows
- Final Line: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K

Altoona (17-20) piled up 13 hits and seven walks, and hammered Richmond, 12-4. Matt Fraizer had a big day, with two singles, his second home run and four RBIs. Tucpita Marcano reached base five times on a single, double and three walks. Connor Scott and Nick Gonzales each reached three times, Scott on a single, triple and walk, Gonzales (288/362/458 in May) on a single and two walks. Liover Peguero had a single and a triple, and Brendt Citta drove in three. Andres Alvarez had only a single and a sacrifice fly. Mike Burrows had a typical start, giving up just a run and two hits over five innings, while fanning six. Bear Bellomy continued to struggle, allowing the other three runs. Will Kobos threw two scoreless innings.

Greensboro (15-21) got shelled by Bowling Green, 10-4. Adrian Florencio’s rough season continued, as he allowed four runs over three innings. Ricky DeVito oddly had the exact same line as Florencio; they even gave up one homer apiece. Garrett Leonard allowed the last two runs. Matt Gorski had only a double and a walk this time, but Endy Rodriguez and Sammy Siani had longballs, their fifth and fourth, respectively. They were also the only players with two hits.
