Prospect Highlights: Another Big Hit From Alen Hanson, Lambo’s Latest Homer

Alen Hanson had two hits, drove in two runs and stole his seventh base in Altoona’s 5-4 loss on Friday night. In his last ten games, he has five multi-hit games and his overall numbers are looking much better than they did at the beginning of last week. He has extra-base hits in three of his last four games and leads the Eastern League with four triples. He is also tied for fourth in stolen bases. Today’s clip is his two-run double from last night.

It was posted a little too late for yesterday’s Prospect Highlights, but Indianapolis had a clip of Andrew Lambo’s two-run homer from Thursday night. The Lambo homer immediately followed a triple by Gregory Polanco.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.

    Good to see Hanson driving the ball. Even though he’s young, I was beginning to worry his bat wouldn’t play at the higher levels. He sure does look the part as being the in the next wave of talented middle infielders (hopefully SS) arriving in the bigs.
