Prospect Highlights: Gregory Polanco Drives a Double to the Gap

Prospect Highlights: Gregory Polanco Drives a Double to the Gap

From Monday night, this highlight was posted too late for yesterday’s article, so we present it today. Gregory Polanco hits a double into the left-center field gap to bring home Chris Dickerson in the ninth inning of a 7-6 loss for Indianapolis. The double was the eighth of the season for Polanco. It was also his fourth hit of the game and it raised his batting average at the time to .397, tops in the International League. He went 1-for-4 with a stolen base on Tuesday night.

There weren’t any other videos on, so to fill this out, we get some highlights(and lowlights) from WJAC out of Johnstown, who posted this video/interview with Wandy Rodriguez following his outing last night. Rodriguez dominated for three innings, then imploded in the fourth. He pitched in the fifth inning like he did in the first three innings, then ran out of gas in the sixth when his pitch count was at his limit. Rodriguez threw 39 pitches in the fourth inning. If he was an actual prospect/minor league player, that single inning pitch total would have ended his night.

    Just wondering if the Pirates manage to rebound in the next month to fancy themselves contenders,will they be bidders on Stephen Drew after the draft?

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.
