Pirates MiLB recap: 5/15/14

Orlando Castro threw six perfect innings for Bradenton and Buddy Borden threw six no-hit innings for West Virginia, but both teams lost anyway.

-- Indianapolis got blanked by Pawtucket, 4-0, as the Indians' hitters couldn't handle Anthony Ranaudo and Adam Wilk couldn't handle Bryce Brentz.  Wilk gave up four runs and eight hits in five and a third innings.  Indy had only five hits.  Gregory Polanco was 1-4.

-- Altoona lost to Binghamton, 3-2, when Quinton Miller gave up a walkoff HR to the first batter he faced in the bottom of the 9th.  The Curve wasted a good start from Adrian Sampson, who allowed two runs in seven innings, on five hits and a walk, with six strikeouts.  Alen Hanson went 2-3 with his third HR.  Stetson Allie and Gift Ngoepe were both 1-4, Allie with no strikeouts and Ngoepe with two.

-- Bradenton took the first game of its doubleheader with Lakeland in ten innings, 7-6, on a walkoff error.  Josh Bell came up a triple shy of a cycle, going 3-5 with his third HR and three RBIs.  Max Moroff went 2-4 and Jeff Roy 2-3.  Starter Jason Creasy struggled, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks in four innings.  He fanned four.  Robby Rowland threw three perfect innings to get the win.

-- In game two, Castro took a perfect game, and a 3-0 lead, into the top of the 7th.  Castro ran out of gas, though, and Thomas Harlan followed by allowing six of the eleven hitters he faced to reach base.  The Marauders ended up losing, 4-3, in eight innings.  Castro allowed one hit and one walk, both of which scored, in six and a third innings.  He fanned four.  Moroff and Taylor Lewis each went 2-3 with a walk.  Bell went 2-4 and is now hitting .315.  He did, however, get picked off first while representing the potential winning run in the bottom of the 7th.

-- Borden (pictured) left with a no-hitter and a 1-0 lead after six innings, but West Virginia still lost to Augusta, 2-1.  Borden walked four, three of them in the 6th, and fanned seven.  Will Kendall gave up the two runs to take the loss.  The Power had only three hits.  Wyatt Mathisen went 2-4 with a double and Reese McGuire 1-4.
