Presley’s Pinch-Hit Triple Sparks 7th Inning Rally

"With the first pick in the 2011 draft, the Pirates take UCLA's RHP Gerrit Cole"









Indianapolis Indians  6,  Syracuse Chiefs  4
[ box

A 7th-inning rally featuring a pinch-hit triple by Alex Presley gave the Indians the win over the Syracuse Chiefs at Victory Field tonight.   Reliever Justin Thomas earned his 4th win, and closer Tim Wood earned his lucky 13th Save.  2B Brian Friday went 3-for-4 and all three hits were doubles, while SS Chase d'Arnaud and C Eric Fryer had 2 hits each.

In three of the past four games, the Indians had surrendered at least one run in the top of the 1st inning.  Tonight, starter Brian Burres (photo) broke that tradition, even though the Chiefs threatened in the top of the 1st.  2B Matt Antonelli opened the game with a double over the head of Tribe 1B Miles Durham and down the right field line into the corner.  Antonelli had to stay at second while Burres struck out CF Corey Brown and got RF Jesus Valdez to bounce into a ground out at second.  Burres walked 1B Chris Marrero, then C Jesus Flores ripped a line drive into right field.  It looked like both runners were going to have plenty of time to come around to score, but RF Andrew Lambo had other thoughts.  He raced toward the line and made a diving catch as the line drive sank, to end the inning for Burres and the Tribe.  

Tom Milone made the start for Syracuse and before he could get himself settled in on the mound, d'Arnaud rifled Milone's first pitch into the right center gap, all the way to the wall, and raced around to third base as the Chiefs' outfielders chased it down.  Brian Friday quickly followed the lead-off triple with a double down the left field line, ending up the Indians' bullpen bench.  That drove in d'Arnaud for a 1-0 lead.
