Pirates' Minor League Roundup: Pirates1 Win DSL Title; Gerrit Cole Gets Annihilated

It's all playoff action now:

-P- Gerrit Cole got unmercifully hammered and a big comeback effort fell short as Indianapolis lost again to Charlotte in game two of their opening playoff series. Cole lasted two batters into the third inning and allowed eight runs, all earned, on nine hits. The hits included three doubles and a HR. Bryan Morris wasn't much better, allowing two inherited runners to score and then giving up three of his own in one inning. Evan Meek gave up another two in one inning. Trailing 9-0 in the 3rd, though, the Indians came back, pulling to within 11-8 in the 5th. By the 8th it was 14-8. Indy scored five in the bottom half of the 8th, the last three on a HR by Yamaico Navarro, but they couldn't get another runner on base and lost, 14-13. Chase d'Arnaud went 3-5 with a walk, a double, a HR, three runs scored and five RBIs. Navarro had a double and a single in five ABs in addition to the HR. Ramon Cabrera and Hector Luna each had two hits. Starling Marte went 1-4 with a walk and a hit batsman, and scored three times. The Indians will have to win on Friday to avoid elimination.

-P- The DSL Pirates1 won the fifth and decisive game of their title series, 4-3, to take the crown from the Angels. Pablo Reyes broke a 3-3 tie with a two-out, RBI single in the top of the 8th to provide the winning margin. Reyes, a shortstop who turned 19 on Wednesday, batted .393 in the playoffs. Daniel Arribas had two RBIs on a double and a groundout. Omar Basulto got the win after taking over with one out in the 4th and allowing just one run on three and two-thirds, while striking out four.
