Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Pittsburgh Pirates top pitching prospects Tyler Glasnow and Jameson Taillon are off to successful starts at AAA Indianapolis. Glasnow 2.57 ERA 30 K's 21 IP and Taillon 1.65 ERA 16Ks 16 IP watch for 2nd half impact for Pirates. Neal Huntington Bucs GM told me both could be ready for June. He told me there is a ton of optimism on both right now.

Davis does it on Wednesday night

Khris Davis had the longest home run by a nose Wednesday night with his fourth-inning blast against Detroit. While Byung-Ho Park may not be leading the Majors in HRs, his is a story of quality over quantity.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Trevor Story had a chance to win it in the 12th with the winning runs in scoring position and two outs, but home plate ump Ramon DeJesus rung him up on an 0-2 fastball that was clearly inside. Give Mark Melancon credit for hitting the glove of Francisco Cervelli, but a terrible call and the Rockies drop their fifth in a row.

McCutchen joins Hall of Fame company

Andrew McCutchen's three bombs on Tuesday night marked the second time he's recorded a three-homer game. Unbelievably, former Pirates Willie Stargell and Ralph Kiner achieved that feat four times in their careers, while Roberto Clemente also did it twice.
