Pirates MiLB recap: 6/17/14

Adrian Sampson and A.J. Morris had strong outings, and Taylor Gushue went deep twice. West Virginia was off.

-- Morris (pictured) pitched well but Indianapolis lost to Gwinnett, 2-1.  Morris went five, giving up one run on five hits and two walks.  He struck out three.  Josh Wall allowed one run on four hits in two innings.  He struck out four.  Chase d'Arnaud was 2-3 with a double after replacing Chris Dickerson, who left after being hit by a pitch.  Chris McGuiness was 2-4.

-- Sampson threw seven strong innings as Altoona beat New Hampshire, 4-2.  He gave up one run on five hits and a walk, and fanned six.  He threw 66 of 90 pitches for strikes.  Sampson didn't get the win, though, as the bullpen blew a 2-1 lead before Altoona scored two in the 9th.  Gift Ngoepe hit his fourth HR and Andy Vasquez his fifth.  Alen Hanson was 1-4 with a double and Justin Howard 2-4 with a double.

-- Bradenton lost to Fort Myers, 4-2.  John Kuchno allowed three runs over six innings.  The Marauders had only three hits.  Josh Bell was 1-3 with a walk.

-- Eighth round pick Austin Coley had a rough debut as Jamestown got hammered by Williamsport, 12-5.  Coley failed to get out of the 2nd inning as a two-out error led to six unearned runs.  Coley went one and two-thirds, allowing three hits and two walks, and striking out none.  Twenty-second rounder Eric Karch also made his debut, giving up a run in one inning.  Gushue was 2-5 with his third and fourth HRs and three RBIs.  Chase Simpson added his first pro HR.  Carl Anderson was 2-4.

-- The DSL Pirates lost to the Mets2, 6-3.  Starter Francis Rodriguez allowed three runs, two earned, in five innings.  He gave up four hits and a walk, and struck out six.  Raul Siri was 2-4 with a triple.  Jeremias Portorreal was 1-3 with a double.  Those were the only hits.
