Cannonballs coming: Kingham returns with five shutout innings

MLB: Spring Training-Pittsburgh Pirates at New York Yankees Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

— Steven Brault had a strong outing as Indianapolis (14-16) won its sixth straight, 7-1 over Norfolk. He allowed one run on three hits and a walk over six innings. Brault struck out four. Five different players had two hits apiece, with Phil Gosselin going 2-5 with two doubles and Anderson Feliz driving in three runs. Adam Frazier again played the whole game in left, which may give some indication of his near-term destination. He went 1-4 with a walk.

Elias Diaz: 2-4
Dan Runzler: 2 IP, 2 H, BB, 2 K
Edgar Santana: IP, H, 2 K

— Altoona (19-12) beat New Hampshire, 4-3, on a walkoff hit by pitch in the bottom of the ninth. The Curve trailed, 3-2, going into the inning, but an RBI single by Kevin Kramer and an outfield error by Harold Ramirez set up a bases-loaded, one-out situation for Edwin Espinal, who got plunked. Starter Austin Coley threw six shutout innings, allowing six hits and two walks, with one strikeout. Espinal reached base four times, going 2-3 with a walk and his second HR. Kevin Newman was out after being beaned yesterday.

Kramer: 1-4
Connor Joe: 1-4, BB
Jordan Luplow: 1-4, 2B
Sean Keselica: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, ER, 2 BB, K

— Nick Kingham returned from his ankle injury in Bradenton’s (22-13) 5-1 win over Palm Beach. Kingham allowed no runs and just one hit over five innings. He didn’t walk or strike out anybody, and threw 46 of 68 pitches for strikes. Taylor Hearn, who apparently got bumped for Kingham, threw two innings in relief, giving up a run on two hits and a walk. Hearn fanned four. Cole Tucker went 2-5 with a double and Logan Hill was 3-4 with a pair of doubles.

Ke’Bryan Hayes: 0-2, 2 BB, SB (13-14 SB)
Will Craig: 0-4
Casey Hughston: 2-4, 3B
Seth McGarry: 2 IP, BB, 3 K, Sv

— West Virginia (16-18) edged Asheville, 2-1. Starter Oddy Nunez allowed no runs, but came out after three and two-thirds innings due to his strict pitch limit. Nunez gave up three hits and a walk, and fanned six. Clark Eagan went 2-3 with a walk, scoring one of the runs and driving in the other.

Stephen Alemais: 2-4, 2B
Ty Moore: 0-4
Trae Arbet: 0-4
Blake Cederlind: 2 IP, BB, 3 K
