Pirates MiLB recap:  6/13/14

Nick Kingham had a stellar AAA debut, while Taylor Gushue and Carl Anderson had strong pro debuts for Jamestown. West Virginia was rained out and Bradenton was off.

-- Kingham (pictured) dominated in his AAA debut, throwing seven shutout innings.  He gave up five hits and a walk, fanned eight, and threw 60 of 95 pitches for strikes.  Kingham left with a 1-0 lead, but was deprived of the win when Vin Mazzaro walked three in the 9th to blow the save.  Josh Wall then gave up a run in the 10th to seal the 2-1 loss to Durham.  The Indians had just four hits.

-- Altoona beat Reading, 5-4, on a walkoff sac bunt (I hope Clint Hurdle doesn't hear about this) by Alen Hanson that was thrown away by the third baseman.  Hanson was 1-4 with a triple.  Andy Vasquez, Jarek Cunningham, Gift Ngoepe and Willy Garcia all went 2-4.  Ngoepe had a triple and Cunningham hit his third HR.  Stetson Allie was 1-4 with two strikeouts.  Starter Zack Dodson gave up four runs on seven hits in six innings.

-- Jamestown fell behind by six early in its opener, but battled back only to lose, 10-9, to Mahoning Valley.  Gushue went 2-5 with a triple and a HR in his debut.  Anderson also had a great debut, going 4-5.  Kevin Ross, who kinda disappeared for after being drafted in the 8th round two years ago, was 3-5 with a double and three RBIs out of the cleanup spot.  Ulises Montilla was 2-5 with a double.  Starter Miguel Rosario, who I'm guessing probably won't be in the rotation after all the draftees are on board, failed to get out of the first inning.

-- The DSL Pirates edged the Astros Orange, 4-3.  Raul Siri was 2-3 with a walk, a double and his second HR.  Adrian Valerio was 0-3 with a walk.  Starter Nestor Oronel gave up two runs on five hits and a walk in four innings, with two strikeouts.
