Indianapolis Indians  4,  Columbus Clippers  3



Alex Presley has had 4 hits and a walk in 9 trips to the plate in the past two games.

LF Alex Presley, who has been with the Indianapolis Indians on a rehab assignment, is sending a message to the Pirates that he's ready to come back.  Presley has shown that he is ready at the plate -- he was on base three times yesterday, with a walk and two singles, and added two more singles today, going 4-for-8.  And, today he showed that he is also ready in the field.  Presley ended today's game at Victory Field with a perfect throw from left field to C Tony Sanchez at the plate, allowing Sanchez to tag out the Columbus base runner (and former Indianapolis Indian) Luke Carlin for the final out of the 9th inning.
