Prospect Highlights: Lambo Homer, Mathisen Triple, RBI Hits From Bell and Allie

Prospect Highlights: Lambo Homer, Mathisen Triple, RBI Hits From Bell and Allie
John Dreker

Four highlights today from three different levels, including a rare West Virginia Power video. Since the Rome Braves are the only team in the SAL that seems to tape games, and only during their home games, we don’t see many Power highlights. We also have a home run from Andrew Lambo from last night and RBI hits from Stetson Allie and Josh Bell.

Lambo hit his fifth homer for Indianapolis. Since returning ¬†from his thumb injury, he has hit .302/.339/.528 in 13 games at Indianapolis. His last six games haven’t been too good though, despite this homer. He is 3-for-24 during that stretch.

Stetson Allie had this RBI hit from Tuesday night. He went 0-for-3 with a walk last night. Allie was also highlighted a couple days ago after he homered.

Josh Bell had an RBI infield single last night. This is the first highlight clips we’ve seen since he was promoted to Altoona and the only Bradenton highlights were ones that we got on our own. So far in 14 games with the Curve, he is hitting .241/.317/.278 with two doubles, six walks and two stolen bases.

Like Lambo, Wyatt Mathisen also missed time recently with an injury, hurting his ankle on a play at third base. He was out for exactly a month. In three games since coming back, Mathisen is 4-for-12 with a double and this triple show below. He has a .266/.347/.354 slash line in 77 games this year. Last year with West Virginia, he hit .185/.286/.210 in 32 games before missing most of the season due to labrum surgery.

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.
