  • Cody Bolton 1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Game Recap:

Indianapolis beat Louisville, 4-1, in a game limited by rain to seven innings.  Osvaldo Bido had possibly the best outing of his career.  He fanned seven and walked one over six innings, and didn’t allow a hit until that last inning.  Cody Bolton gave up a solo home run in the seventh.  Hoy Park had his second straight three-hit game, which included his ninth home run with Indy.  The Indians had 14 hits and two walks in the seven innings, and went a solid 4-for-13 with runners in scoring position, but that all still amounted to only four runs.  Brendt Citta, Blake Sabol and Taylor Davis each had two hits.  Travis Swaggerty and Diego Castillo each had a double.

Starting Pitcher: Jared Jones

  • Final Line: 4 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K

Notable Performances:

  • Jase Bowen 2-4, 3B
  • Eli Wilson 1-4
  • Jackson Glenn 1-4, 2B

Game Recap:

Greensboro (56-66) beat Winston-Salem, 3-2, in ten innings.  Jared Jones had, what for him, was a fairly typical start.  He fanned seven over four innings, and gave up just three hits and a walk, but still allowed two runs.  Cristian Charle, Eddy Yean and Cam Junker worked two hitless innings apiece, striking out two, three and four, respectively.  That gave the Hoppers 16 strikeouts for the day.  Junker got three strikeouts in the top of the tenth to keep the free runner from scoring.  The Hoppers ended the game quickly in the bottom half when, after a bunt moved the runner to third, Jackson Glenn doubled.  The other two runs came in the second when Jase Bowen tripled in one run and Eli Wilson singled to score Bowen.  Bowen was the only player on either side with two hits.

Starting Pitcher: Joelvis Del Rosario

  • Final Line: 5 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Notable Performances:

  • Tsung-Che Cheng 1-4, 2B, BB, 2 SB
  • Termarr Johnson 0-3, BB, SB
  • Wyatt Hendrie 2-3, BB
  • Tres Gonzalez 2-4
  • Sergio Campana 1-3, 2B, BB

Game Recap:

Bradenton (64-60) lost to Fort Myers, 6-3.  Starter Joelvis Del Rosario deserved better.  He gave up four runs in the second, all unearned due to errors by Tsung-Che Cheng and Termarr Johnson.  He later allowed two earned runs, but one was a runner who scored from first on a single.  Will Kobos and Drew Irvine threw two shutout innings each.  The Marauders had a lot of bad luck at the plate, with a number of loud outs, including two line drive double plays.  Of course, they also struck out a dozen times, which didn’t help.  Wyatt Hendrie and Tres Johnson each had two hits.  Cheng had a two-run double, and Sergio Campana had a double and a walk.  Cheng stole two bases, giving him 31 on the year.  Juan Jerez stole his 20th.  Johnson had a rough day, striking out three times as he struggled with changeups.  Matt Gorski continued his rehab and also fanned three times.

Having followed the Pirates fanatically since 1965, Wilbur Miller is one of the fast-dwindling number of fans who’ve actually seen good Pirate teams. He’s even seen Hall-of-Fame Pirates who didn’t get traded mid-career, if you can imagine such a thing. His first in-person game was a 5-4, 11-inning win at Forbes Field over Milwaukee (no, not that one). He’s been writing about the Pirates at various locations online for over 20 years. It has its frustrations, but it’s certainly more cathartic than writing legal stuff. Wilbur is retired and now lives in Bradenton with his wife and three temperamental cats.

I think Labor Day weekend also had a lot to do with it, though the Game Discussion got a normal amount of comments and the Player of the Month article got plenty too, especially compared to previous POM articles.


Got to love Endy, doesn’t get a hit but still contributes.
