-- Jameson Taillon fanned nine over six innings, but Indianapolis lost to Columbus, 5-2. Taillon allowed two runs on six hits and three walks, one intentional, and threw 63 of 100 pitches for strikes. Columbus ran wild on Taillon and Kelly Shoppach, stealing six bases in six tries. Alex Presley and Jared Goedert each had a single and a double.
-- Altoona lost to Erie, 6-3. Gregory Polanco went 1-2 and then left the game for unknown reasons. Alen Hanson went 1-4. Starter Nate Baker gave up five runs and ten hits in five innings.
-- Bradenton got three HRs and five runs in the 1st inning and went on to beat Fort Myers, 8-4. Willy Garcia hit his 16th, Jose Osuna his eighth and Jacob Stallings his fourth, all in the 1st. Stallings later added his fifth HR and Osuna a double. Stetson Allie went 1-3 with a walk. Starter Zack Dodson allowed four runs in five innings.
-- Tyler Glasnow (pictured) threw four shutout innings and West Virginia beat Hickory, 5-3. Glasnow gave up just one hit and one walk, and fanned seven. I'm guessing that the Pirates are going to limit Glasnow's innings strictly the rest of the way, as he's now thrown nearly three times as many innings as he did last year (although that doesn't count the pitching he did in extended spring training before last season). Jhondaniel Medina got the last five outs, three on strikeouts, for the save. Josh Bell had a double in four ABs. Dilson Herrera, batting cleanup for the first time, went 0-2.
-- Jamestown got shut out by State College, 2-0. Starter Shane Carle threw seven shutout innings, an unusually long outing for short season ball. He gave up four hits and a walk, and struck out four. State College got both of its runs in the top of the 9th. Edwin Espinal and Elvis Escobar each had two hits.
-- The GCL Pirates shut out the Astros, 6-0. Enyel Vallejo had a big day, going 3-5 with two doubles, his third HR, and four RBIs. Austin Meadows went 2-3 with two walks and Reese McGuire 0-3 with one walk. Ulises Montilla went 2-4 with a triple and Wyatt Mathisen continued his rehab, going 1-3 with two walks. Neil Kozikowski continued to pitch well, going four innings and allowing one hit and two walks, while striking out three.
-- The DSL Pirates2 shut out the Braves, 5-0. Starter Jose Batista and reliever Francis Rodriguez each threw four scoreless innings. The Pirates had only three hits, but they drew nine walks. Michael De La Cruz went 0-3, dropping his average to .299, but he drew two walks.
