The Pirates are playing the Yankees over at McKechnie Field. Here at Pirate City, the Pirates are playing the Yankees minor league teams. The A-ball teams are home today, featuring a lot of interesting hitting prospects. A group of hitters just came over from McKechnie, so they’ll probably be jumping in to take at-bats each inning. I saw Ali Solis in uniform, so it looks like he’ll finally be getting into some action this afternoon. Tyler Waldron will also be starting the high-A game. The lineups, pitchers, and notes are below.
Lineup: Darren Ford (8), Drew Maggi (4), Clint Robinson (3), Tony Sanchez (DH), Matt Hague (5), Jerry Sands (DH), Andrew Lambo (9), Jeff Larish (7), Alex Valdez (6), Devin Ivany (2)
Pitchers: Tyler Waldron, Hunter Strickland, Tim Alderson, Nate Baker, Jeff Inman
Notes: Tyler Waldron is starting the Triple-A game, but he mentioned yesterday that he’ll be starting the year in Altoona.
Lineup: Gift Ngoepe (6), Mel Rojas Jr. (8), Jarek Cunningha...
