This was also his second best start of the year, Altoona starts included, with his best being eight shutout innings on July 12th. Indianapolis carried a lead into the eighth inning until Kyle Farnsworth gave up two runs. Farnsworth has now given up three earned runs in 1.2 innings over two appearances. Vic Black got the loss, giving up a walk off homer in the bottom of the ninth.   AA: ALTOONA CURVE  Box Score Result: Reading 2, Altoona 0 Starting Pitcher: David Bromberg, RHP (6-10, 3.17) – 5.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 0 HR Top Hitter: Travis Snider, RF (.333) – 1-for-3 Other Notable Performers: Alen Hanson, SS (.186) – 1-for-4 Game Notes: Altoona Loses Pitcher’s Duel Against Reading.   A+: BRADENTON MARAUDERS Box Score Result: Bradenton 3, Jupiter 1 Starting Pitcher: Pat Ludwig, RHP (2-2, 4.26) – 7.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 0 HR Top Hitter: Dan Gamache, 2B (.266) – 1-for-3, HR, BB Other Notable Performers: Willy Garcia, RF (.263) – 1-for-2, 2B, 2 RBI Elias Diaz, C (.278) – 2-for-3 Ashley Ponce, 3B (.268) – 2-for-3 Game Notes: Pat Ludwig Follows Up Pitcher of the Week Honors With Another Gem.   A: WEST VIRGINIA POWER Box Score Result: Charleston 3, West Virginia 2 Starting Pitcher: John Kuchno, RHP (3.99) – 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 1 HR Top Hitter: Luis Urena, LF (.167) – 2-for-4, 2B, 3B Other Notable Performers: Francisco Diaz, C (.249) – 2-for-3, 2B, BB, 2 RBI Dilson Herrera, 2B (.264) – 1-for-4, BB, SB Game Notes: Dilson Herrera extended his modest hitting streak to four games. He also stole his 11th base of the year. Luis Urena picked up his third double and his first triple in West Virginia, spanning 72 at-bats. He only has a .167 average, but is showing some power with a .152 ISO. He also has 39 strikeouts in those 72 at-bats, which sums up his career. He shows some impressive power with flashes of dominant hitting, but his lack of plate patience will hold him back.

He has a 3.51 ERA in 59 innings over 11 starts, with a 39:16 K/BB ratio.   A-: JAMESTOWN JAMMERS Box Score Result: Jamestown 4, Mahoning Valley 2 Starting Pitcher: Chad Kuhl, RHP (2.23) – 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 0 HR Top Hitter: Edwin Espinal, 1B (.299) – 1-for-4, HR Other Notable Performers: Jin-De Jhang, DH (.297) – 2-for-4, 2 2B Wyatt Mathisen, C (.667) – 2-for-3, 2 RBI Game Notes: Edwin Espinal hit his second homer of the season, and his second in as many days. He extended his hitting streak to ten games, hitting for a .417/.425/.667 line in 36 at-bats over that span. Wyatt Mathisen added two more hits, and is now 4-for-6 in two appearances with Jamestown.
