Following are Minor League Coach Pitch reports on games played March 31, April 1 and April 3.

D’Backs 10, Orioles 5

Twins 14, Rays 5

The Twins bats were hot once again as they jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. The Twins’ hitting attack was led by Maddox Frazier (2-for-2 including an inside-the-park home run), Kamden Woods (3-for-3), Cade Horn (3-for-3), and Davis Wilkey (3-for-3) including an inside-the-park home run). Tom Bowen was cited for his outstanding play on defense.

Orioles 6, A’s 3

Both offenses struggled with both teams playing great defense. The Orioles had a big inside-the-park home run by Adarrian Taylor Wilson in the sixth to open it up. Solid glove work by first baseman Coby Barrett and great outfield alertness by Brock Wilson. The A’s got RBIs from Gavin Tatum and Adam Cornwell, who also shined defensively in the outfield.

D’Backs 18, Reds 11

The Diamondbacks erupted in the top of the sixth inning and pulled away from the scrappy Reds. The D’Backs were led by Charlie Rothschild, who had three good hits. Gabe Cox had a couple of hits as well and Sam Jarrett had some great defensive plays.

Orioles beat Twins

 The Orioles battled back in the bottom of the sixth to knock off the previously undefeated Twins. Adarrian Taylor Wilson continued his strong hitting with another home run, and there was great glove work and game control at first by Coby Barrett. A line-drive was hit into left field by Annaston Wilson to tie the game in the sixth. In a tough loss to a good Orioles team, the Twins were led by Turner Abernathy (3-for-3), Cliff Chatman (3-for-3 including an inside-the-park home run), and Parker Browning (2-for-2). Maddox Frazier had outstanding play at catcher.

D’Backs 11, Rays 1

Landon Kellner had a couple hits, and Julez Pratt played great defense for the D’Backs.

A’s 11, Reds 9

In a slugfest, back-and-forth game, the A’s jumped out to an early lead 7-2, but the Reds stormed back behind Eli Odell and some timely hitting to lead 9-8 heading into the bottom of the fifth. Brodie McWhorter’s inside-the-park home run tied it, and Riley Mann singled in the winning run. Sam Wiedetz also went 3-for-3 with an inside-the-park home run for the A’s.
