Not much action today. Indianapolis, Altoona, West Virginia and Morgantown were all off. Bristol had their regularly scheduled game and the continuation of yesterday’s suspended game rained out.
— Stephen Alemais (pictured) drove in five runs as Bradenton (64-53) outslugged Daytona, 13-6. Alemais went 4-4 with a double and is now batting .397 with greatly improved plate discipline since he was promoted three weeks ago. He may present the Pirates with a challenge next spring, as he probably should open next year at Altoona and Adrian Valerio definitely should move up to Bradenton, but Cole Tucker probably won’t be ready for AAA. Ke’Bryan Hayes went 3-4 with a double and a walk. Gage Hinsz came back from the DL after missing a couple starts, but lasted only until there were two outs in the second. He left after a visit from the trainer. He allowed a run and four hits before departing.
Mitchell Tolman: 2-4, BB
Kevin Krause: 2-4, 2 2B, BB, 3 R
— The GCL Pirates (16-27) beat the Tigers East, 4-3. Rodolfo Castro provided a lot of the offense, going 3-4 with his fourth HR and three RBIs. Jeremias Portorreal was 2-4 with a double and Victor Ngoepe 2-4 with a triple. Starter Yeudry Manzanillo allowed two runs over six innings on seven hits. He walked none and struck out four.
Lolo Sanchez: 1-5
Mason Martin: 1-5, 3 K
Calvin Mitchell: 1-3, BB
— The DSL Pirates (33-28) dropped a 3-2 game to the Indians. Carlos Garcia was 2-3 with a walk and his third HR. Saul De La Cruz fanned four in two innings of relief.
