Emergency Alarm Sounds At Braves’ Ballpark


The Braves said an equipment malfunction was the source of confusion in the top of the third last night when an emergency alarm sounded in the ballpark and a message stated the building was being evacuated.  Umpires did not stop play, and the game continued.


Braves Top Bucs


Matt Adams singled in the ninth inning to lift the Braves past the Pirates 6-5.  The game was delayed by rain, for three hours, in the top of the seventh inning.  Game three of the four-game series is tonight.  Trevor Williams faces Julio Teheran.  Join the OVSN at 7:10 for the pregame.


Frazier Leads Bucs Past Nats


Adam Frazier drove in a career-high four runs, Josh Bell and John Jaso homered and the Pirates took two of three from the Nationals with a 10-4 win yesterday afternoon.  The Bucs start a weekend set with Philadelphia tonight at 7:05.  (2-2) Trevor Williams faces (4-1) Jeremy Hillickson.  Join the OVSN at 6:40 for the pregame.


Court Upholds Kang’s Sentence


A South Korean court upheld a suspended prison sentence for Pirates’ infielder Jung Ho Kang over a drunken driving conviction, a ruling that may complicate his plans to rejoin the Pirates this season.  The court said the suspended prison term was “rational” because there wasn’t much room for leniency.  Kang was previously fined on drunk driving related charges in 2009 and 2011.


Polanco On 10-Day DL


Pirates’ outfielder Gregory Polanco was placed on the 10-day disabled list because of a hamstring injury.  Outfielder Danny Ortiz was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis to fill the open roster spot.
