Pirates MiLB recap:  6/4/14

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Tony Sanchez went deep twice in an Indianapolis rout and the DSL Pirates got in the W column. West Virginia was rained out. And some guy who does or does not have a plane ticket in hand got three hits.

-- Sanchez (pictured) went 3-6 overall and drove in five as Indianapolis hammered Syracuse, 11-2.  The HRs were his second and third in AAA.  Matt Hague also went 3-6, driving in three.  Gregory Polanco made three outs in six ABs, jeopardizing his not-currently-planned callup, which is not planned for Friday.  One of Polanco's three hits was a double that he didn't stretch into a triple, which is something else he'll need to work on in the next 36 hours.  Mel Rojas went 2-3 with a double and a walk, and is now hitting .353 since his promotion.  Jaff Decker was 2-5 with a double.  Starter Jay Jackson, who's been turning things around after a horrible early season, went six innings, allowing two runs on six hits and no walks.  He fanned six.

-- Altoona edged Binghamton, 6-5.  Joely Rodriguez gave up two runs in six innings.  He allowed six hits and a walk, and struck out four.  Elias Diaz was 3-4 with a double, Matt Curry 2-4 with two doubles, Alen Hanson 2-4 with a triple, and Willy Garcia 1-3 with a double.

-- Bradenton lost to Brevard County, 3-1.  The Marauders had only four hits.  Josh Bell was 0-4.  Starter John Kuchno went seven innings, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks, with two strikeouts.

-- The DSL Pirates got their first win, beating the DSL Braves, 9-6, in ten innings.  Raul Siri, who's off to a fast start, went 2-4 with a double.  Siri is a 19-year-old infielder in his first pro season.  Yunelky Adames, a 23-year-old first baseman in his fourth season, went 3-4 with three RBIs.  Sandy Santos was 2-4 with a double.  Among the more prominent prospects, Adrian Valerios was 1-4; Jeremias Portorreal, an outfielder with power potential who's still just 16, was 1-3 with a walk; and Edison Lantigua was 0-4.  Starter Richard Mitchell, who was considered a solid prospect when signed before the 2012 season, threw five shutout innings, allowing just a hit and a walk, and striking out four.
