All four of the Pittsburgh Pirates minor league affiliates saw game action on Thursday night, going 2-2 on the day. 2022 first round pick Termarr Johnson hit the first outside-the-park home run of his career for the Bradenton Marauders.

Triple-A Indianapolis (20-21)

The Indians put up ten runs on ten hits without a single homer, grinding their way on base with nine walks in their 10-5 win. 

Catcher Endy Rodríguez went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a run scored and a triple roped the opposite way, showing off a rare set of wheels for a backstop. He also committed a passed ball on defense. 

Third baseman Malcom Nuñez went 3-for-4 with a pair of run-scoring singles and a double. Nuñez came around to score two runs. 

Double-A Altoona (17-17)

The Curve also managed to win last night, outlasting the Bowie Bay Sox in a 13-11 track meet.

First baseman Mason Martin hit a grand slam to jump out to a 9-0 lead in the fourth inning. 

Shortstop Liover Peguero went 3-for-6 on the day with three RBI and a pair of runs scored.

Closer Oliver Garcia picked up his first save of the season, allowing one run and striking out two batters in the ninth inning. 

High-A Greensboro (20-16)

The Grasshoppers couldn’t come back against the Asheville Tourists, falling 2-1. 

Starting pitcher Anthony Solometo gave up just three hits in seven innings, striking out six batters, but allowed a pair of earned runs.

Greensboro outhit the Tourists 10-3, but couldn’t come up with the decisive play as each hit went for a single. 

Shortstop Tsung-Che Chen, designated hitter Jackson Glenn and second baseman Maikol Escotto all managed two hits. 

Low-A Bradenton (20-16)

The Marauders fell to the Clearwater Threshers 10-3. 

Second baseman Termarr Johnson hit his first home run of the season, a solo shot in the fifth inning, adding a single and a pair of walks. He also committed a throwing error (and has struggled on defense to begin the year), one of four that helped sink the Marauders.
