Prospect Highlights: RBI Hits From Gregory Polanco, Tony Sanchez and Jaff Decker

Just like yesterday, today’s highlights are all in one video and all about Indianapolis. The best of the highlights from yesterday’s 11-6 Indianapolis win, were the RBI hits from Gregory Polanco, Tony Sanchez and Jaff Decker. The video also includes a strikeout from Jay Jackson and an RBI double from Blake Davis, plus a couple Scranton/WB highlights that unfortunately tagged along.

The RBI single by Gregory Polanco came in the third inning and started the scoring for Indianapolis, bringing home Jaff Decker. Polanco now has 45 RBIs on the season and he is batting .466 with runners in scoring position. Decker has a .901 OPS in his last ten games and he has driven in nine runs over that time. Tony Sanchez has played nine games for Indianapolis and has ten RBIs. That all adds up to a productive top of the lineup.

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.

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.
