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

Bristol’s game was called due to wet grounds.

— Mitch Keller had a decent-ish start, but Indianapolis (68-59) lost to Columbus in ten innings, 4-3. Columbus scored the bogus runner in the top of the tenth, but the Indians couldn’t get theirs in from second. Keller allowed just two hits and an unearned run over five innings, but he needed 91 pitches to get that far. He walked three and struck out two. A.J. Schugel followed and recorded only two outs, giving up a run on three hits. He struck out one. Jose Osuna went 3-5, Jason Martin 1-3 with a walk, Max Moroff 1-5 and Kevin Kramer 0-5.

— Bryan Reynolds went 4-5 as Altoona (69-55) beat Binghamton, 9-2. Reynolds had a double and his seventh home run, and scored three times. Eduardo Vera had an excellent start, allowing just a run and three hits over seven innings. He walked one and fanned seven. Jin-De Jhang went 2-5 with three RBIs and Logan Hill 2-3 with a walk and his 16th home run. Will Craig was 1-5 with a double and his 97th RBI. Cole Tucker was 0-5 and Stephen Alemais 1-5.

— Bligh Madris led off the bottom of the ninth with a walkoff home run to give Bradenton (54-65) a 3-2 win over Charlotte. Madris was 2-4 and the home run was his ninth. Domingo Robles gave up two runs in six innings. He allowed seven hits and two walks, and fanned seven. Hunter was 2-4 with a double, Jason Delay 2-3 with a triple, and Raul Siri 2-3 with a double. The game produced an interesting play description: “Casey Hughston bunt lines out to pitcher Ivan Pelaez.”

— West Virginia (63-58) came from behind in the bottom of the ninth to tie their game with Charleston, but lost, 3-2, in ten innings. Cal Mitchell, who finished 2-5, doubled to tie the game with two out. In the tenth, though, Charleston scored their phony runner but the Power never moved theirs off second. Hunter Stratton had a good start, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks in six innings. He struck out five. Logan Stoelke made his full-season debut with a perfect inning, striking out two. Travis Swaggerty went 0-5, Connor Kaiser 1-4 with a walk, and Lolo Sanchez 1-3.

— Morgantown (25-38) beat Batavia, 9-2. Mike LoPresti gave up a run on four hits in five innings. He walked one and struck out five. Cody Smith fanned six in three innings of relief. He gave up an unearned run. Zack Kone hit his first professional home run, a three-run shot, and walked his other three times up. Fabricio Macias went 3-5 with two doubles, a triple, and three RBIs.

— The GCL Pirates (25-24) won the completion of a suspended game against the Yankees West, 5-3. The Pirates blew a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the seventh, but scored three in the top of the eighth and gave up only the bogus run in the bottom half. Michael Burrows threw three scoreless, hitless innings before the game got suspended. He walked one and struck out three. Fernando Villegas went 2-3 with a double. Jack Herman was 0-4 and Samuel Inoa 1-2.

The Pirates lost the regularly scheduled game, 5-2. Braham Rosario, just promoted from the DSL, gave up three runs, one unearned, in four innings. Herman, taking a day off from tormenting GCL pitchers, went 0-3. Inoa was 1-3 with a double, and Francisco Acuna was 2-3.

— The DSL Pirates1 (32-36) beat the Brewers/Indians, 7-2. Emilson Rosado (17) was 2-4 with three RBIs and Bladimir Susana (18) was 2-4. Juan Pie (17) was 0-3 with a walk. Arlinthon De Dios (18) threw four shutout innings.

— The DSL Pirates2 (26-42) beat the Royals2, 3-1. Fleury Nova (17) was 2-4 with a double and a walk. Mario Garcia (19) threw six shutout innings. He gave up five hits, walked nobody and struck out two.
