Pirates MiLB recap: 6/1/14

Bradenton got a good start and Indianapolis didn't, but both won. Altoona and West Virginia lost, and the DSL Pirates were off.

-- Indianapolis scored four in the 8th to take a seesaw game from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 9-7.  Jeff Locke continued to show that he shouldn't be a candidate for the Pirates' rotation, allowing five runs on ten hits and two walks in five innings.  He struck out two.  Andy Oliver continued what's quietly been a good year, striking out two in the 9th to pick up the save.  In 28.2 IP so far, he's held opponents to a .152 average and struck out 42.  Unfortunately, he's walked 20.  Matt Hague went 2-4 with his seventh HR and four RBIs.  Michael Martinez went 3-4 with his first HR.  Gregory Polanco, still hitting leadoff, and Jaff Decker each went 2-5.  Mel Rojas was 2-4.

-- Altoona lost to New Hampshire, 2-1, in 12 innings.  Starter A.J. Morris allowed one run on six hits in six innings.  He walked one and fanned six.  Alen Hanson went 1-5.  Stetson Allie didn't play.

-- Bradenton edged Clearwater, 4-3, on the strength of an outstanding start by Jason Creasy (pictured) and a three-run HR by Josh Bell, his fifth.  Creasy threw six shutout innings, allowing just two hits and a walk, and striking out seven.  Adam Frazier was 3-4 with a double and a walk.  Walker Gourley had two hits.  Bell went 1-5.

-- West Virginia lost to Greensboro, 8-3.  Cody Dickson continued to struggle, allowing four runs in four and two-thirds innings.  He gave up six hits and three walks, and struck out six.  Harold Ramirez went 2-5 with a double and Danny Collins 2-5 with his third HR.  Reese McGuire was out of the lineup for the second day in a row.  He's not on the disabled list, so he evidently has some minor issue.
