Prospect Highlights: Base Hit From Willy Garcia, Two Homers From Indianapolis

Altoona lost 6-5 on Sunday despite two homers from Stetson Allie. Unfortunately, videos of those homers haven’t been uploaded on, possibly because they are still waiting for the second one to land. So today we got with what we got, a nice single the other way from Willy Garcia to score a run in the sixth inning. At the time, this hit put Altoona up 5-2, but the bullpen couldn’t hold the lead.

We also have a pair of home runs from Indianapolis. The first is from Saturday off the bat of Chris McGuiness, his fourth of the season.

The second Indianapolis homer is off the bat of Brent Morel, who had a big day yesterday, driving in five runs. Three of those RBIs came from this one swing in the second inning.

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.
