Thanks to Jamie Workman for the updates. Nice pictures Jamie. Were the Pirates there?
Josh Beckett was happy with his day. But, don’t get too excited Pirate fans. He was probably just glad to be standing up. Beckett gave up four runs on six hits. He struck out one and walked two. His 70th pitch on the day was Delwyn Young’s latest home run. This one was a two-run shot that helped the Bucs to a 9-7 victory.
Here is a cool box score.
Neil Walker with another hit in the game. Jamie said his foray into RF was a little wind challenged. Brandon Moss is off the snide. He ripped a single in the eighth inning off losing pitcher Jorge Sosa. It’s not like Sosa is a slouch, we saw him pitch with the Nats last year. He was also a Met, but ehhh…his Baseball Reference page is here.
Charlie Morton will pitch tomorrow (5/75). DJ Carrasco, Javier Lopez, Jean Machi, Jack Taschner, and Chris Jackubauskas will also face the Orioles tomorrow.
DUNEDIN: Starting pitcher Brad Lincoln dazzled with a three-inning shutout effort and shortstop Brian Friday drove in the only run of the contest for the Indianapolis Indians as the Tribe played to a 1-1 tie with the Las Vegas 51’s on Friday, March 19 at the Englebert Complex in Dunedin, Fla.
Indians’ DH Brandon Jones tripled to right-centerfield and scored the Tribe’s lone run on Friday’s sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. The 51’s tied the contest in the eighth on a single by 2B Luis Sanchez that scored CF Mastroianni, who led off the frame with a single, stole second and moved to third base on a throwing error.
Indians pitchers, led by Lincoln (3.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 SO) and RHP Ronald Uviedo (1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO), limited Las Vegas to six hits on the afternoon. 51’s starting pitcher Dustin McGowan (2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 1 SO), who is recovering from a Darseason-ending labrum injury, tossed two scoreless frames, while RHP Kyle Drabek (3.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 SO), son of former Pittsburgh Pirates’ starting pitcher Doug Drabek, struck out three in 3.1 innings for Las Vegas.
