P2 Top 30

A look at how the current top 30 prospects did today. If a player is in the majors and loses his prospect eligibility, he will be removed. Everyone below him will be shifted up a spot, and a new player will be added to the bottom of the list. If a player is out for the season, he will be removed and everyone below him will move up a spot. Removing these guys doesn’t mean they have lost prospect status. It is just an attempt to get 30 active prospects on the list. Rankings are from the 2016 mid-season update, and links on each name go to their Pirates Prospects player pages.

Indianapolis won 6-2 over Toledo, as Alen Hanson returned to the lineup after missing five days with a leg injury. Hanson led the offense, picking up two doubles, a walk and two runs scored. Max Moroff walked twice and scored two runs. He leads the league and all Pirates with 82 walks. Danny Ortiz went 3-for-4, with two doubles, giving him 17 on the season. Willy Garcia hit his 27th double, which ties his career high.

Frank Duncan got the start, coming into the game with a 1.94 ERA and 20 innings of shutout ball over his last three outings. He did not have it going in this game, giving up two runs on five hits and three walks in four innings. He had six strikeouts, but he needed 90 pitches to get through his limited work because he was going deep in counts and getting a lot of foul balls. Duncan had a chance to take over the ERA lead in the International League. He needed seven innings today to qualify, which means he will likely fall short of qualifying at the end of the season now.

Altoona had their game canceled due to rain. Clay Holmes got in one inning before the rain got heavy. He walked the first batter on four pitches, then got a double play grounder one pitch later. The next batter hit a soft line to shortstop for the third out and a quick inning. In between the top and bottom of the first, it started pouring and that was the end of play, with the game called about two hours later. His stats will not count from this game.

Bradenton won 4-3 in game one of a doubleheader, coming back from a 3-2 deficit in the final inning for the walk-off victory. Yeudy Garcia started and his mound opponent was Greg Harris, who led the FSL with 127 strikeouts coming into the game. Garcia ranked second in the league, seven behind him. Harris opened up a bigger lead on this day with seven strikeout, compared to just two for Garcia, who went five innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and one walk. It was a tough game despite average results for Garcia. He needed 90 pitches to get through his five innings, with 58 going for strikes. He had a nice 7:1 GO/AO ratio. He now has a 2.77 ERA and 122 strikeouts in 123.1 innings.

This game was 3-2 Charlotte going into the bottom of the seventh inning (last inning in doubleheaders) and Taylor Gushue tied up the score with his eighth home run of the season. Pablo Reyes was up next and he singled, then moved to second on a wild pitch. Cole Tucker sacrificed him over to third base, then Tito Polo hit the walk-off sacrifice fly.

The Marauders had just four hits in the first six innings, all singles. Tito Polo also had a hit and a run scored in this game. Jordan Luplow drove in his 50th run. Tate Scioneaux got the win with two scoreless innings.

Game Two: Bradenton lost an uneventful game two by a 6-2 score. Both Marauder runs were unearned. In the bottom of the first inning, Cole Tucker reached on a single. He was forced out at second on a Pablo Reyes grounder. Reyes stole second, then went to third on a throwing error. Connor Joe walked, then Jerrick Suiter reached on an error, scoring Reyes. A double by Chase Simpson would score the second run.

Bradenton had one base runner in each of the next five innings and couldn’t score a run. Besides the double, Simpson also drew two walks. Tucker had two singles, though his seventh inning error led to an unearned run.

Buddy Borden started and allowed four runs over 2.1 innings. Jose Regalado followed with 2.2 scoreless innings, then Henry Hirsch and Luis Heredia each allowed one run in one inning of work.

CHARLESTON, WV – After a spotless start against Lexington, Gage Hinsz hit a speed bump in the first inning against the Lakewood Blueclaws. Each of the first four batters reached and three of those runners scored to break the game open for Lakewood. From that point on, though, Hinsz settled in to allow only two additional hits in seven innings.
Even with the relative success, many of Hinsz’s pitches lacked movement, and he didn’t seem to have strong command of his breaking ball until the later innings. His first four innings resulted in eight fly ball outs against three groundouts in addition to two hit batters and one walk.

When the curveball command returned, Hinsz pitched quite effectively. He retired the side in order in each of his final three innings, getting exclusively grounders.

Another slow day by the Power offense set up a dramatic finish for the second day in a row. The Power had a man on in each of the first five innings, but poor base running and a lack of timely hits held the Power to a mere two runs.

The first run came in the third inning when John Bormann hit a one-out double, and Logan Ratledge followed with a single. Casey Hughston brought home Bormann with a sacrifice fly, but Ratledge ended the inning getting caught stealing on the next pitch.

Hughston’s four other at-bats were less successful. He finished the game with four strikeouts, the third time Hughston has worn the golden sombrero this year.

Logan Hill took care of the second Power run with a solo home run in the fourth inning. He now has 11 home runs on the year (four in the month of August alone).

For the second day in a row, the Power plated the tying run in the ninth inning. Mitchell Tolman and Logan Hill hit back-to-back singles to lead off, and a one-out walk by Daniel Arribas loaded the bases. Stephen Alemais brought Tolman home on a sacrifice fly, making up for two costly base running errors earlier in the game.

After three unremarkable innings of extras, the Lakewood Blueclaws took the lead off of reliever Seth McGarry. McGarry bounced back to strikeout the final batter of the 13th with runners on the corners.

The Power got the first two runners on to lead off the bottom of the 13th. Logan Hill, Carlos Munoz, and Daniel Arribas failed to get the ball out of the infield. Munoz was the only Power player without an appearance on the basepaths in today’s 4-3 loss.- Abigail Miskowiec

Morgantown lost 5-1 on Sunday, as starter Danny Beddes had a rare subpar outing. Beddes was actually cruising along for five shutout innings, following up a start earlier this week in which he threw five shutout innings. In the sixth tonight, Beddes fell apart and before the inning was over, Mahoning Valley put five runs on the board.

Not only did Beddes have a bad inning, Brandon Bingel had a rare poor outing. He started his career with one earned run over 19 innings. In his last game, he gave up two runs over 1.1 innings, then followed it up tonight with two walks and a hit before he could record an out. Bingel allowed all three inherited runners to score, plus a run of his own.

The Black Bears scored their only run in the third inning and it was unearned. Nick King reached on an error, going to second base on the play. That was followed by an RBI single from Sandy Santos. Morgantown finished with four hits and all of them were singles. Ty Moore had two of the hits. Will Craig reached on a walk, and has now reached base safely in 51 of his 55 games.

Mike Wallace has been the best pitcher recently for Bristol, but even he couldn’t keep them from dropping their 40th game of the season. Bristol lost 7-3 to Princeton, as Wallace gave up five runs over 4.2 innings. The only highlight to his outing was seven strikeouts. He finishes the season with a 3.10 ERA in 52.1 innings. This is the first time he allowed more than two runs in a game since his first appearance of the season.

Julio de la Cruz was the highlight on offense and he didn’t even play the first six innings. Returning from a minor ankle injury that kept him out nine days, he doubled in a run as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning, then hit a solo homer in the ninth inning. The other run scored on an Adrian Valerio home run. He also scored the run on the Julio de la Cruz double. Valerio had his sixth multi-hit game this week.
