Game Notes: Jamestown lost, but Lowell also lost, so Jamestown didn’t lose any ground in the Wild Card race. Tomorrow is the final day of the season. Jamestown has a one game lead, so a win or a Lowell loss sends them to the playoffs. Cody Dickson threw five innings without an earned run for the sixth time in his last seven starts. The 2013 4th round pick finished his season with a 2.37 ERA in 57 innings, along with a 59:24 K/BB ratio. Austin Meadows picked up two more hits. In his four games in Jamestown going 8-for-16 with a home run and two walks.

Prospect Watch: The Austin Meadows Show Continues in Jamestown

  • smurph

    Looks like another great draft for the Pirates, getting Meadows and McGuire. Catcher was a weak spot in the system a year and a half ago. Now it is a strength, possibly the most depth of any position other than pitcher.

    • deacs

      2012’s draft was a little bit of a dud considering we lost Appel and Barnes seems to be hurt all the time. Early returns would say they nailed this year’s draft. Of course it’s extremely early but the stats are there. I can’t tell though if some of the college guys are taking advantedge of the rookie leagues or what but the top 3 HS picks definitely show promise. And if nothing else farm depth for the Bucs at this point will get you a Byrd and Morneau for the stretch run.
