Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Altoona was off.

-- Bradenton edged Tampa, 3-2.  Steven Brault went five and two-thirds.  He gave up two runs on four hits and three walks, and struck out six.  Michael Fransoso and Wyatt Mathisen each went 2-3.  Reese McGuire was 1-3 with a double.  Austin Meadows didn't play and is expected to miss a little more time due to a bruised hand.

-- West Virginia lost to Augusta, 5-2.  Stephen Tarpley got hit around some, giving up five runs on ten hits in five and two-thirds innings.  He walked two and struck out three.  John Sever followed with three and a third scoreless innings.  He gave up four hits and didn't walk or strike out anybody.  Cole Tucker was 1-4 and Connor Joe 0-3.

-- The DSL Pirates beat the Brewers, 6-5.  Mikell Granberry, Huascar Fuentes and Raul Hernandez each had two hits.  Shortstop Christopher Perez, a 17-year-old who was one of the Pirates' more prominent signings last year, went 1-2 in his third game since returning from a minor injury.
