Short Season A

West Virginia (13-10) wins 9-6 over visiting Auburn (11-12)

2018 2nd Round pick Braxtan Ashcraft (0-4, 6.35) had another poor start, giving up two first innings runs but surrendering five hits and three walks in four innings while striking out just one. He threw just 44 of 76 pitches for strikes (58%).

Ashcraft left with a 4-2 lead and the Black Bears added four insurance runs on five hits in the bottom of the seventh.

CF Brett Kinneman (167/278/302) hit a two-run homer in the first, his seventh homer of the year. 2B Corey Wood (271/358/373) was 3-for-3 with a pair of walks and DH Matt Frazier (190/250/238) and LF Blake Sabol (259/365/426) had two hits each.

SS Ethan Paul made his professional debut batting second, and was 0-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout.

Advanced Rookie

Bristol (11-9) blanked 5-0 by visiting Pulaski (11-8)

Starter Jose Maldonado (2.70 ERA in 16 23 IP) was lifted after just two innings and 31 pitches, allowing a run on two hits and two walks, then was followed by five relievers.

The Pirates only managed five singles and two walks, with the Pulaski starter Ken Waldichuk departing after three perfect innings.

CF Daniel Rivero (230/309/246) was 2-for-3.


GCL Pirates (6-6) 4-1 winners at Twins (5-7)

2019 1st Round pick Quinn Priester made an impressive second start as a pro, allowing one run in four innings on two hits and two walks while fanning five.

CF Jase Bowen (316/409/474) was 1-for-4 and LF Sammy Siani (241/389/241) was also 1-for-4 but with three whiffs.

Dominican Rookie

Pirates-1 (16-16) walk off with 6-5 win over visiting Rays-2 (19-13)

Starter Valentin Linarez (2.93 ERA in 27 23 IP) didn’t allow an earned run in five innings, giving up just three hits and a walk with four strikeouts.

Leading 3-1, the Rays struck for four in the seventh. Then down 5-3 in the bottom of the ninth they loaded the bases with one out. A wild pitch made it 5-4, then a single by CF Sergio Campana (308/387/477) tied the game and another by LF Osvaldo Gavilan (234/291/383) drove in the winner.

Both Campana and Gavilan finished with two hits each.

Pirates-2 (26-6) victorious 5-3 in 10 at Royals-2 (14-17)

17 year old right-hander Felipe Mezquita (4.07 ERA in 24 13 IP) gave up just one hit in five scoreless innings, walking three and fanning five.

Tied 3-3 in the tenth, SS Dariel Lopez (368/413/537) tripled to drive in the fake runner then scored one out later on an infield single by DH Eduar Ramirez (308/538/423)

2B Deivis Nadal (340/452/447) was 3-for-4.
