-- West Virginia (30-29) got clobbered by Columbia, 11-2.  Gage Hinsz' second start of the season didn't go as well as his first.  He had a rough first inning, allowing three runs.  He settled in after that and threw four scoreless innings, but he gave up two runs in the sixth and left with just one out.  Hinsz allowed six hits and a walk overall, and struck out two.  He threw 55 of 87 pitches for strikes.  Others:

Tito Polo:  1-4
Ke'Bryan Hayes:  1-4, BB
Daniel Arribas:  2-5

-- The DSL Pirates (1-4) picked up their first win of the year, stopping the Cubs1, 6-3.  Joel Cesar, now shown as Joel Cesar Toribio, started and went three innings.  He's the 5'11" righty who can throw 100 mph with very dubious control.  His line wasn't great -- 1 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 2 K -- but as totally raw pitchers go it's probably not a terrible debut.  Francisco Mepris went 3-3.  Of the team's likely top three prospects, Sherton Apostel got his first hit of the year, going 1-2 with two walks.  Kevin Sanchez was 0-5 and Larry Alcime 0-3; both remain hitless so far.
