Pirates’ affiliates picked up three wins on Sunday, highlighted with a shutdown performance from Thomas Harrington, the organization’s No. 5 prospect per MLB Pipeline.

Triple-A Indianapolis put just four runners on base in their 5-0 loss to the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp.

Thomas Harrington got the start for the Altoona Curve, striking out five batters and allowing just one hit in five innings of work.

The Greensboro Grasshoppers put the hurt on the Winston-Salem Dash in a 12-4 win. Lonnie White Jr. and Shawn Ross homered, each recording three hits. Charles McAdoo and Mitch Jebb also reached base three times, with McAdoo finishing a homer shy of the cycle.

Axiel Plaz homered to tie the game in the ninth inning for the Bradenton Marauders, then Javier Rivas and Jeral Toledo doubled to notch the eventual game-winner in a 4-3 decision.
