Pirates MiLB recap:  6/8/14

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Vance Worley won a game almost single-handedly, while several notable prospects went deep in the other games. The DSL Pirates were off, not that their box score ever shows up anyway.

-- Worley did it all for Indianapolis in a 4-2 win over Lehigh Valley.  On the mound he went eight innings, giving up two runs on six hits and a walk, while striking out seven.  He threw 72 of 103 pitches for strikes.  At the plate, Worley went 3-3 with a HR, his third as a pro (all in the minors), and two RBIs.  Mel Rojas went 2-4 and is now hitting .367.  Nevin Ashley went 2-3 and Gregory Polanco 1-5.  Andy Oliver continued to pitch well in relief, getting the save with a 1-2-3 9th, including one strikeout.

-- A six-run 7th pushed Altoona past Trenton, 9-7.  Stetson Allie was 2-3 with his 11th HR and two walks, and Alen Hanson was 2-5.  Matt Curry and Drew Maggi also had two hits apiece.  Zack Dodson allowed four runs on nine hits in four innings.

-- Bradenton edged Charlotte, 5-4.  Starter Chad Kuhl allowed three runs in five and two-thirds innings.  He allowed seven hits and two walks, and fanned five.  Eric Wood, Jin-De Jhang and Jose Osuna all went 2-4.  Wood had a double and three RBIs, and Jhang hit his second HR.  Josh Bell was 1-4.

-- West Virginia lost a rain-shortened game, 4-2, to Hickory.  The game was called in the bottom of the 6th.  The Power's runs came on back-to-back HRs by Harold Ramirez and Edwin Espinal, their first and second, respectively.  Erich Weiss went 2-2, the only other hits.
