Pirates MiLB recap:  5/11/14

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Jeff Locke finally had a good AAA start, while Altoona and West Virginia got some offense. Bradenton was off.

-- Locke got a couple of strikeouts to rescue himself from a bases loaded, one-out jam in the 1st and went on to pitch Indianapolis to a 5-2 win over Norfolk.  The win snapped the Indians' seven-game losing streak.  Locke gave up two runs in seven innings on five hits and two walks.  He struck out five.  Phil Irwin threw two scoreless innings for the save.  Michael Martinez went 2-4 and Matt Hague 2-3 with a double.  Gregory Polanco was 0-4.

-- Altoona dropped Akron, 7-4.  Stetson Allie evidently benefited from getting a day off, as he broke out of a severe slump by going 3-5 with a double and one strikeout.  Alen Hanson (pictured) was 2-5 with a double, his second HR and three RBIs.  Mel Rojas also went 2-5 with a HR, his third.  Justin Howard and Jarek Cunningham each had two hits.  Starter A.J. Morris gave up three runs on five hits and four walks in five and two-thirds innings.  He fanned four.

-- Cody Dickson struggled again as West Virginia lost to Greenville, 9-6.  Dickson allowed four runs over four innings on four hits and four walks.  He struck out only one.  Harold Ramirez returned to the lineup and went 2-5.  Erich Weiss was 3-5, Wyatt Mathisen 2-3 with two walks, and Edwin Espinal 2-4 with a walk.  JaCoby Jones went 1-5 with his fifth HR and Reese McGuire 1-3 with two walks.
