Pirates MiLB recap: 5/20/14

All of the Pirates' affiliates got good starting pitching -- you remember good starting pitching, right? -- in winning three of four.

-- Brandon Cumpton gave up one run in eight innings as Indianapolis dropped Gwinnett, 4-2.  Cumpton allowed five hits, walked two and struck out six.  Dan Schlereth and Josh Kinney managed to hold Gwinnett to one run in the 9th.  The Indians had only six hits and struck out 13 times.  Robert Andino went 2-4 with his first HR and Chris Dickerson 2-4 with a double.  Gregory Polanco went 0-4 with three strikeouts.

-- Altoona wasted an outstanding start by Adrian Sampson in a 1-0 loss to Akron.  Sampson gave up the one run on three hits and a walk over seven innings.  He fanned eight and threw 65 of 102 pitches for strikes.  The outing lowered his ERA to 2.17.  The Curve had only three hits.  Alen Hanson and Stetson Allie each went 0-3 with a walk.  Allie fanned twice.

-- After starting off with six perfect innings in his last start, Orlando Castro (pictured) threw six and two-thirds innings of a 3-0 Bradenton shutout of Daytona.  Castro allowed four hits, walked none and fanned six.  Josh Smith pitched the last two and a third.  The Marauders had only three hits and all of their runs were unearned.  Josh Bell went 0-2 with a walk.

-- Buddy Borden allowed one run over five innings of a 4-1 West Virginia win over Delmarva.  Borden gave up five hits, walked two and struck out five.  Justin Maffei and Adam Landecker each had two hits.  Wyatt Mathisen went 1-2 with a double and a walk, and JaCoby Jones 1-3 with a double.  Harold Ramirez went 0-3 and Danny Collins 1-1 with three walks.
