Pittsburgh Pirates Prospect Watch 7/5/10
INDIANAPOLIS INDIANS (AAA)
Indianapolis lost game two 1-0. Michael Crotta pitched a great game, allowing one run on five hits in 5.2 innings, with a walk and six strikeouts. Wilfredo Ledezma finished off the game, pitching 1.1 shutout innings, with a walk and three strikeouts.
Jim Negrych, Brian Myrow, and Jeff Clement all went 1-for-3, with Clement stealing a base. Clement also started at catcher in game one, but played first base in game two. Clement’s playing time at catcher could be an interesting situation to watch. Argenis Diaz and Alex Presley each went 1-for-2, with Presley also drawing a walk.
Matt Hague went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run, and an RBI. Hector Gimenez went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs. Gorkys Hernandez went 2-for-5 with a double, a run, and an RBI. Miles Durham went 3-for-4 with a double, a run, an RBI, and a stolen base. Shelby Ford went 2-for-4 with a double, a stolen base, and a run.
David Rubinstein went 2-for-5 with a triple and two RBIs. Elevys Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs. Kyle Morgan went 1-for-3 with a double and two RBIs. Evan Chambers went 1-for-4 with a walk, a run, and a stolen base, his 21st of the season.
the sixth, and allowed all three inherited runners to score, plus two runs on three hits, only getting one out. Sandobal Septimo pitched 1.2 shutout innings, allowing two hits, two walks and a strikeout. Justin Ennis allowed two runs on two hits and two walks in 1.2 innings.
Chase Lyles went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBIs. Matt Curry went 1-for-3 with a double and two RBIs. Adalberto Santos went 2-for-5 with two runs and an RBI. Walker Gourley went 3-for-5 with a double and a run. Matt Skirving went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run scored. Hudson Valley stole ten bases off of Skirving tonight in 12 attempts. Seven of those steals came against Brooks Pounders, and three came with Sandobal Septimo on the mound. The two caught stealing were with Beckman on the mound. This is more a concern with Pounders than it is with Skirving, since you steal off the pitcher. Pounders also hit two batters. Not a good outing at all.
Manuel Moreno went 2-for-4 with a triple and a stolen base. Luis Sucre went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. Francisco Aponte went 0-for-2 with two walks and two stolen bases, giving him 17 on the season. Jose Roman went 1-for-3 with a walk.
Samuel Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs. Jodaneli Carvajal went 1-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base, and an RBI. Diego Goris went 2-for-4 with a run. Yeffrey Jaquez went 2-for-3. Alen Hanson went 1-for-3. Willy Garcia went 1-for-4.
