Minor League Ball Gameday: Saturday, March 8

Mariners corner infielder DJ Peterson was 2-3 with a home run. - Otto Greule Jr

DJ Peterson and Kris Bryant leave the yard and Billy Hamilton swipes a pair of bases.

Good afternoon everyone and welcome back. Kris Bryant, DJ Peterson and Billy Hamilton led the charge offensively from the Top 100 that saw game action yesterday. Bryant launched his second home run of the spring to go along with a pair of strike outs. Peterson hit a single, struck out, and knocked his first home run. Hamilton showed his ability to terrorize a pitching staff, working a walk and stealing back to back bases before scoring.

Only four Top 100 pitchers toed the mound yesterday and all had a rough time. Yordano Ventura fared the best, allowing two runs on three hits with a walk and two strike outs over three innings. Jameson Taillon easily got the worst of it, only recording two outs, allowing three runs (one earned) on three hits, a walk and a wild pitch. Here's how the rest fared.
