Cannonballs Coming: Scoreless starts by Osvaldo Bido and Aaron Shortridge

— Indianapolis (0-2) lost to Columbus in 11 innings, 5-4. Montana DuRapau got out of a bases-loaded, one-out situation in the 10th, but gave up a walkoff single with two out in the 11th. Mitch Keller struggled through four and two-thirds innings, walking five. He held the hits to three and allowed three runs, one unearned, while fanning six. Columbus had a lineup loaded with experienced major leaguers — Jason Kipnis, Carlos Gonzalez, Cameron Maybin and Ryan Flaherty — although that doesn’t explain 51 strikes in 91 pitches. The Indians still had a 4-3 lead in the 8th, but Michael Feliz couldn’t hold it. Cole Tucker led off the game with his first home run and Will Craig hit his second. Tucker finished 2-4 with a walk and Craig 1-4.

According to Pirates Prospects, Jared Oliva went on the injured list with a concussion sustained from a collision yesterday.

— Aaron Shortridge and Cal Mitchell led Bradenton (2-0) to a 4-2 win over St. Lucie. Shortridge threw five shutout innings against a lineup that again had Travis d’Arnaud and Todd Frazier.
