Cannonballs coming: Glasnow debuts, Williams hurt

For the first time this year, everybody got their games in.

-- Indianapolis dropped the first game of a doubleheader with Columbus, 1-0.  Tyler Glasnow had the sort of start that shows both why people are excited about him and why the Pirates are being cautious about calling him up.  He allowed just three hits, one a first-inning HR, and fanned six in five innings.  He also walked three and threw just 43 of 81 pitches for strikes.  Frigid weather may have played some role, one way or the other.  The Indians managed just four singles and a walk, while fanning 11 times in 24 ABs.  Others:

Alen Hanson:  1-3, 2 K
Max Moroff:  0-3
Josh Bell:  1-2, BB
Jason Rogers:  1-3, 2 K
Willy Garcia:  0-3
Trey Haley:  1 IP

The Indians picked up their own shutout, 4-0, in game two, but not in ideal fashion.  Starter Trevor Williams left with shoulder discomfort during his second hitter.  Kelvin Marte got the next five outs, and five different relievers followed with a scoreless inning each.  The runs all came in the third, the first two on a single by Josh Bell, which Jason Rogers followed with a HR.  Bell and Rogers each went 1-3 with a walk.  Others:

Adam Frazier:  0-3, BB
Max Moroff:  1-2, 2 BB

-- Altoona picked up its first win, beating Harrisburg, 6-3.  Tyler Eppler allowed just three hits -- in fact, that's all the Curve allowed total -- and two walks, while striking out three.  He gave up two runs.  The bullpen managed to survive despite Josh Smith walking three in his one inning and Dovydas Neverauskas giving up a run on a walk, two steals and a grounder.  Jose Osuna and Eric Wood led the offense.  Osuna was 2-5 with a double and a HR.  Wood was 3-4 with a triple.  Barrett Barnes walked as a pinch hitter and stole a base in his first appearance after getting beaned at the end of spring training.  Others:

Harold Ramirez:  1-5, 2B
Reese McGuire:  1-3, BB
Montana DuRapau:  1 IP, 1 K, Sv

-- Bradenton rallied for a run in the 9th to tie, then beat Ft. Myers, 4-3, on a walkoff single by Connor Joe in the 10th.  Starter Yeudy Garcia scuffled, allowing nine hits and three walks in four and two-thirds innings.  According to Pirates Prospects (sub. req'd), though, three of the hits were of the infield variety and three resulted from misplays by left fielder Jeff Roy.  Garcia allowed two runs and fanned four.  Edgar Santana threw the last three innings for the Marauders, allowing no runs on one hit, while striking out three.  Chase Simpson tied the game with one out in the 9th, belting a triple and scoring on an error.  In the 10th, Kevin Newman (pictured) reached on a one-out error, went to third on a single by Kevin Kramer, and scored when Connor Joe lifted a ball over the drawn-in outfield.  Others:

Newman:  2-5, 2B
Kramer:  2-4, 2B, BB
Joe:  1-5
Michael Suchy:  2-4

-- Dario Agrazal threw five scoreless innings as West Virginia dropped Greensboro, 3-1.  Agrazal gave up four hits and a walk, and struck out one.  Ty Moore, who went 2-4, doubled in two runs and Mitchell Tolman, who went 1-3 with a walk, knocked in the other.  Others:

-- Casey Hughston:  1-4
-- Carlos Munoz:  1-4
-- Tate Scioneaux:  2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
