Late Games

Padres 8, White Sox 0 Box »

Padres prospects Joe Wieland and Keyvius Sampson combined for four innings of strong relief in a blanking of the White Sox on Wednesday. Wieland allowed a single to Paul Konerko in his two-inning stint, but the duo was otherwise perfect as both registered a pair of strikeouts. Rymer Liriano went 2-for-3 and scored a run for San Diego. Marcus Semien played the entire game at shortstop for the White Sox and singled for his second hit of the spring.

Early Games

Cardinals 8, Red Sox 6 Box »

Sure, the Red Sox may not have liked what they saw on the scoreboard Wednesday afternoon, but they did like one major thing on the field. Top prospect Xander Bogaerts connected on his first home run of the spring -- a two-run no-doubter to left in the sixth inning -- in Boston's loss to St. Louis. The 21-year-old shortstop is now 3-for-9 with the homer, two RBIs and two walks thus far in Grapefruit League play. Right-handed pitching prospect Anthony Ranaudo, however, did little to help the cause in his second outing, surrendering five runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks in just 1 1/3 innings of relief. Of the four Cardinals prospects to feature in the win, only Stephen Piscotty recorded a hit, although Kolten Wong scored twice after entering as a pinch-runner in the fourth.
