Astros 4, Yankees 4 (10 innings) Box »

Astros No. 10 prospect Brad Peacock solidified his case for the club's fourth starter role against the Yankees, allowing a run on two hits over five innings.

Acquired in February from the A's in the five-player trade involving shortstop Jed Lowrie, Peacock struck out one while walking two, lowering his spring ERA to 3.20. He was 12-9 with a 6.01 ERA for Triple-A Sacramento last season.

Early-Afternoon Games

Twins 9, Orioles 5 Box »

Twins top prospect Miguel Sano knocked home a run in his second Major League Spring Training start on Tuesday, combining with fellow farmhand Aaron Hicks to help Minnesota earn its 15th win of the Spring.

Sano went 1-for-5 and gave the Twins a 5-3 lead in the fifth inning when he reached on an error by third baseman Manny Machado, allowing Justin Morneau to scramble home in the Twins' 9-5 victory. Sano, who made his big league Spring debut on March 21 with a pair of hits, came around to score on a grounder later in the frame.

The Twins scored two runs in the third against Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman, Baltimore's first-round pick in last year's Draft. Hicks, the Twins' No. 6 prospect who went 3-for-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored, started the inning with an RBI triple to score Wilkin Ramirez before Brian Dozier brought Hicks home with a single to left.

"Some of the kids that you read all about, well, we read about them, too," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said of Sano after his Spring debut. "I know he's been working really, really hard [at third base]. I know Paul Molitor and him have been really getting after it and they're working on his approach and his stance on getting reads. Obviously, it's working out pretty good."
