Cannonballs coming: GCL Pirates get a pair of four-hit games

Indianapolis and Altoona remain off for their leagues’ all-star games.

— Bradenton (48-37) lost to Clearwater, 7-4. Cam Vieaux had his first rough start at high A, allowing five runs on seven hits in four innings. He walked one and struck out one. Gage Hinsz followed for one inning, as the Pirates continue their new practice of giving minor league starters a break with an outing or two out of the bullpen. Hinsz got a break as he gave up a single and a HR. It turned into a solo HR, and just one run allowed, because the baserunner failed to touch second. Starling Marte continued his rehab, going 1-4.

Cole Tucker: 1-4
Ke’Bryan Hayes: 1-3, BB
Will Craig: 1-3, BB

— West Virginia (38-47) got shut out by Augusta, 2-0. Luis Escobar gave up a run on two hits and three walks in five innings. He fanned four. The Power managed only six hits.

Adrian Valerio: 1-3
Hunter Owen: 1-3, 2B

— Morgantown (14-8) trailed Hudson Valley, 1-0, in the eighth, but Tristan Gray tripled to lead off and Bligh Madris grounded out to tie the game. In the tenth, singles by Dylan Busby and Gray, and a sacrifice fly by Madris, brought in the go-ahead run and the Black Bears went on to win, 2-1. Ike Schlabach went six innings without allowing an earned run for the second straight start. He gave up one that was unearned, along with four hits. He fanned four and didn’t walk anybody; in fact, none of the Morgantown pitchers walked anybody.

Jared Oliva: 1-4, BB
Deon Stafford: 0-4
Busby: 1-4
Gray: 2-4
Blake Weiman: IP, K

— Bristol (6-14) got three longballs and one-hit pitching from four pitchers in a 5-0 win over Johnson City. Hunter Stratton allowed the only hit, along with three walks, in four and two-thirds innings. He struck out five. Alex Manasa followed and allowed only one baserunner, on an error, in two and a third. He struck out one. Fourth round draft pick Jason Delay hit his first pro HR, going 1-5 overall. Ryan Peurifoy, drafted in round 38, had a big day, hitting his first pro HR, along with a double, while going 3-5. And Johan De Jesus went 3-5 with his first HR of the year.

— Steven Jennings made his second pro appearance as the GCL Pirates (4-11) beat the Tigers East, 5-2. Jennings gave up an unearned run in three innings. He allowed four hits and two walks, and struck out two. Lolo Sanchez and Gabriel Brito (pictured) each had four hits. Sanchez was 4-5 with a double and two steals. Brito replaced Rodolfo Castro at DH after Castro was removed (sub. req’d) for failing to run out a fly ball in his first at-bat. He went 4-4 with three RBIs. Stephen Alemais, rehabbing at short, went 1-4 with a double and a walk.

Cal Mitchel: 0-3, BB
Austin Shields: 2 IP, 2 H, R, 2 BB, K

— The DSL Pirates (20-14) lost to the Indians, 10-3. The Pirates had only three hits. Not much good happened.

Jean Eusebio: 0-4
Francisco Acuna: 0-3, BB
Sherten Apostel: 1-4
