Prospect Watch: Light Day on the Schedule Highlighted by Braylon Bishop’s Debut

Just three games on the schedule today, with all of the full-season teams off on Monday and the DSL games getting wiped away by weather. All of the DSL games are listed as canceled, not postponed, so it appears for now that they won’t be made up at a future date.

The Pirates tied this game up in the bottom of the seventh on a Wyatt Hendrie single after a lead-off double by Jackson Glenn.

The Braves scored five runs (four earned) in the eighth inning off of Yunior Thibo, who tossed scoreless sixth/seventh innings. Kevin Disla recorded the final out of the eighth.

The Pirates had just one hit in the first six innings and it resulted in a run. Francisco Quintero had an infield single. He moved to second on a wild pitch, third on a passed ball, then scored on a ground out by Fleury Nova. In the seventh, they scored much the same way. A hit-by-pitch was followed by a balk, wild pitch, walk, walk, ground out and an error. They ended up scoring three runs on one hit all game. Solomon Maguire walked twice.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
