Dodgers' top prospect Yasiel Puig was 4-for-4 with a homer, two RBIs and fell a double shy of the cycle. Puig, who scored twice and stole a base, raised his average to .500 with the performance. Manager Don Mattingly has stated in the past that the 22-year-old Cuban will begin the year in the Minor Leagues despite his strong Spring Training performance.

Top Cardinals pitching prospect Shelby Miller had his longest and strongest outing of the spring as St. Louis edged host Miami, 5-4. Miller entered the game with a 7.04 ERA in his first three Grapefruit League appearances but bounced back Tuesday to hold the Marlins to one single while fanning three over four scoreless frames. The 22-year-old right-hander improved to 2-0 this spring. Fellow Cardinals righty Trevor Rosenthal contributed a perfect eighth inning, and outfielder Oscar Taveras singled, stole a base and scored in four at-bats.

Baltimore Orioles pitching prospect Kevin Gausman relieved starter Brian Matusz in the sixth inning and chucked two scoreless frames in Baltimore's 8-7 win over the Boston Red Sox. The right-hander, ranked 37th on MLB.com's Top 100, struck out Mike Napoli and Jarrod Saltalamacchia to begin the outing, finishing with three punchouts and just one hit -- a ground-rule double by Will Middlebrooks. The outing helped the Orioles edge the Red Sox, who got a base hit each from prospects Jackie Bradley and Jose Iglesias.
