DSL Pirates1 win two on slow day

New, comments

Not much action in the minors as nearly everyone was off in deference to The Exhibition Game. Altoona was the only full season team in action.

-- Altoona outhit Bowie, 9-4, but lost on the scoreboard, 3-2. Eliecer Navarro gave up just three hits and a walk in seven innings, but was charged with three runs. He struck out six. Alex Dickerson went 3-4 and Mel Rojas, Jr., 1-4, and each had a double. Gregory Polanco went 0-2 with two walks.

-- The GCL Pirates rallied for four runs in the top of the 9th to beat the Astros, 6-3. Reese McGuire went 2-5 and Ulises Montilla 1-2 with a double and three walks. Montilla's having an interesting year so far. He's hitting 304/431/536 and, although he's not a big guy, 12 of his 17 hits have gone for extra bases (11 doubles and a triple). He also has 13 walks to ten strikeouts. Austin Meadows went 1-4 with a triple, a walk and two strikeouts. Nick Buckner went 1-4 with a walk and three strikeouts. Wei-Chung Wang (pictured) allowed one run in four innings, on three hits and no walks. He struck out two.

-- The DSL Pirates1 took a doubleheader from the Yankees2, somehow scoring a total of nine runs on just four hits in the two games. The Pirates took game one, 4-1, despite getting only one hit . . . and that hit played no role in the scoring. Starter Jherson Esqueda threw four shutout innings, allowing three hits and a walk, and fanning three.

The score in game two was 5-0. Julio De La Cruz went 1-3. Jandy Vasquez went five innings, giving up three hits and no walks, and fanning three.

No results were available for the DSL Pirates2.
