Ryan Feltner, the 24-year-old right-handed from the state of Ohio and number 22 in the Colorado Rockies, continued his formidable campaign with another great start, with the Indians beating the Vancouver Canadians 8-0 in the third of six, high-A West series.

Feltner threw more than five shutout innings and allowed two hits and two walks with seven strikeouts, which lowered his earned season average to 2.17 over seven starts. He has allowed one or less deserved runs in five of these starts with 45 strikeouts in 37 innings.

Isaac Collins scored a triple home run, his second of the season, and Willie MacIver added an RBI double. The Indians (14-19) drew nine walks, including three by Hunter Stovall.
