Four teams were off on Tuesday and West Virginia's game got suspended after two innings with the Power leading 6-1, due to a passel of walks. As a result, there's only rookie-level action to report.
-P- The GCL Pirates beat the Yankees, 7-4. Wyatt Mathisen and Edwin Espinal each went 3-4, with Mathisen hitting two doubles. Candon Myles went 2-2 with a triple and a walk. Adalberto Santos continued a pretty lengthy rehab, by minor league standards, going 2-5 with a triple. Cesar Lopez started and allowed only three hits and two walks in four innings, but he gave up four runs, three earned.
-P- The DSL Pirates1 walloped the Mets2, 13-6. The Bucs had only seven hits, but drew a dozen walks. Pirate pitchers, on the other hand, fanned 17 batters. Starter Leandro Rodriguez, a first-year righty who'll turn 19 in a couple weeks, fanned nine in five innings, allowing an unearned run on two hits and no walks. Richard Mitchell, a Colombian righty who'll turn 17 at the end of July, threw two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and one walk, and fanning three. Tito Polo, a 17-year-old center fielder, went 1-5 but drove in four. The one hit was his first HR, a three-run shot. Fredis Padilla, an 18-year-old Colombian infielder, went 2-4 with a triple and a walk. Ramses! Pena went 1-2 with three walks and three runs. Maximo Rivera went 0-3, dropping his average below .400, although he did walk twice.
-P- The box score for the DSL Pirates2 wasn't available as of 12:30am, but they lost to the Yankees1 17-2, so it's probably just as well.
