Pirates’ minor league affiliates picked up three wins on Sunday, with 2022 fourth overall pick Termarr Johnson notching three base hits to give himself five over the past two games.

The Indianapolis Indians split their doubleheader with the Toledo Mud Hens. Matt Gorski homered for the second day in a row, while Henry Davis drew his International League-leading eighth hit by pitch despite playing just 11 games in Triple-A.

The Altoona Curve capped their series with the Akron Rubber Ducks, picking up a 6-2 win. Braxton Ashcraft went just three innings on 52 pitches, while Seth Beer and Brenden Dixon each logged three-hit games. 

Nick Cimillo and Termarr Johnson hit three-run bombs in consecutive innings for the Greensboro Grasshoppers, leading them to a 7-4 win over the Hickory Crawdads.

Single-A Bradenton fell 3-1 to the Tampa Bay Tarpons, scattering seven hits through nine innings.
