Game One Box Score Result: Indianapolis 8, Norfolk 1 Starting Pitcher: Jeanmar Gomez, RHP (1-0, 1.13) – 5.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 0 HR Top Hitter: Josh Harrison, 2B (.310) – 3-for-4, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, SB Other Notable Performers: Andrew Lambo, LF (.188) – 1-for-3, HR, 3 RBI Chase d’Arnaud, SS (.253) – 2-for-4, 3B Game Notes: Jeanmar Gomez made a rehab appearance, throwing 52 pitches and 35 strikes. He was scheduled for 60 pitches, and went to the bullpen to finish his outing. Josh Harrison had a huge night, hitting his third homer of the year, his 21st double, and stealing his 17th base. Andrew Lambo also hit his third homer, and now is tied for the system lead with 17 homers, tying with Stetson Allie. Harrison’s homer came off top prospect Kevin Gausman, while Lambo homered off Jon Rauch. Game Two Box Score Result: Indianapolis 5, Norfolk 3 Starting Pitcher: Andy Oliver, LHP (3.21) – 4.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 7 BB, 7 K, 1 HR Top Hitter: Andrew Lambo, LF (.243) – 3-for-5, 2B, HR Other Notable Performers: Ivan De Jesus, 2B (.325) – 2-for-5, 2B Darren Ford, CF (.211) – 2-for-5, 2B Tony Sanchez, PH-DH (.307) – 1-for-1, 2B, RBI Game Notes: Game two was scheduled to go the standard seven innings for a double header, but the game went to extras with the Indians winning in the tenth. Tony Sanchez came in to pinch hit in the top half of the inning with Brett Carroll on first and one out. Sanchez hit his 20th double of the year, bringing Carroll all the way around to score the go ahead run. Sanchez then scored on a Lucas May single. Earlier in the game, Andrew Lambo hit his second homer of the day, and his 18th homer of the year, putting him in the system lead. Andy Oliver once again struggled with his control, walking seven in 4.2 innings, and throwing 100 pitches in that span.   AA: ALTOONA CURVE    Box Score Result: Altoona 5, New Hampshire 2 Starting Pitcher: Eliecer Navarro, LHP (1.50) – 6.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 1 HR Top Hitter: Alex Dickerson, RF (.239) – 1-for-2, HR, 3 RBI Other Notable Performers: Gregory Polanco, CF (.333) – 1-for-3, 3B Game Notes: Eliecer Navarro made his debut with Altoona and picked up right where he left off with the Bradenton Marauders. Navarro gave up very few base runners, only allowed one run, and got zero run support to get a no decision. Alex Dickerson hit his sixth homer of the year in the seventh inning to give Altoona a 4-2 lead. Gregory Polanco is 6-for-18 with a triple in his five games in Double-A. Tonight’s triple was his first extra base hit.   A+: BRADENTON MARAUDERS   Box Score Result: Jupiter 3, Bradenton 2 Starting Pitcher: Matt Benedict, RHP (0-7, 5.37) – 5.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 0 HR Top Hitter: Elias Diaz, C (.263) – 1-for-4, 2B Other Notable Performers: Alen Hanson, SS (.291) – 1-for-4, 3 K Game Notes: Alen Hanson had his 21st error of the year tonight, and his sixth error in his last eight games. His defense has struggled lately, although the offense has remained hot. Matt Benedict, Ryan Beckman, and Emmanuel De Leon combined for a 16:1 GO/AO ratio. The Marauders offense combined for five hits tonight. They should get a boost tomorrow with Stetson Allie joining the offense.   A: WEST VIRGINIA POWER   West Virginia was off today for the SAL All-Star break.   A-: JAMESTOWN JAMMERS   Box Score Result: Mahoning Valley 7, Jamestown 6 Starting Pitcher: Dovydas Neverauskas, RHP (1.80) – 5.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 0 HR Top Hitter: Jodaneli Carvajal, 2B (.333) – 2-for-4, 2B, BB Other Notable Performers: Elvis Escobar, RF (.417) – 1-for-5, 2B Harold Ramirez, LF (.308) – 2-for-4, BB Max Rossiter, C (.333) – 1-for-3, BB, 2 RBI Game Notes: Check out my 2013 Jamestown Jammers preview for information on all of the players on the roster. The Jammers had a 6-1 lead when Dovydas Neverauskas left the game after five innings. Neverauskas didn’t allow the run until two outs in the fifth inning, snapping a 22.2 inning scoreless streak to start the season for Jamestown. After that the Jammers bullpen allowed a run in each of the remaining innings, eventually losing in the bottom of the ninth due to poor control from Axel Diaz. Elvis Escobar picked up another hit, but also added two errors. Harold Ramirez had his second multi-hit game in three games this year.
