Top Hitter: Walker Gourley, CF (.253) – 3-for-4, 3 2B

AAA: INDIANAPOLIS INDIANS

Box Score

Result: Charlotte 14, Indianapolis 13

Starting Pitcher: Gerrit Cole, RHP (0-1, 36.00) – 2.0 IP, 9 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 HR

Top Hitter: Chase d’Arnaud, SS (.556) – 3-for-5, 2B, HR, 5 RBI

Other Notable Performers

Yamaico Navarro, DH (.444) – 3-for-5, 2B, HR, 3 RBI

Ramon Cabrera, C (.400) – 2-for-4

Starling Marte, CF (.286) – 1-for-4, BB

Bryan Morris, RHP (27.00) – 1.0 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 0 HR

Daniel McCutchen, RHP (2.25) – 4.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 0 HR

Game Notes: The Indians are now down 2-0 in the best of five series against Charlotte. Gerrit Cole was hammered in his first playoff start (and second start in Triple-A). Bryan Morris also was hit hard. The performance from Morris was more of a concern, as it was only Cole’s second Triple-A appearance. Morris ended the season by giving up three earned runs in 4.2 innings over his final four outings, plus three more unearned runs. He is out of options next year, and will need to be in the majors or exposed to waivers. He will likely be a September call-up when the playoffs are over. Chase d’Arnaud and Yamaico Navarro both homered. Navarro’s homer in the eighth helped a failed comeback. The Indians were down 11-3 and came back to make the game 14-13 after eight innings.
