Pirates MiLB recap: 6/19/14

Tyler Glasnow did what he does, Buddy Borden had a good start and Bristol opened its season. Indianapolis was off.

-- Altoona blew a three-run lead in the 9th and lost to New Hampshire, 7-6, in eleven innings.  Starter Pat Ludwig gave up one run in five innings.  Drew Maggi was 3-5 with two doubles, Elias Diaz 3-6, Gift Ngoepe 2-4 with a double, Alen Hanson 2-6 and Matt Curry 2-5.  Jarek Cunningham hit a three-run HR, his fourth, a day after being intentionally plunked.  Stetson Allie, who was intentionally hit in the shoulder yesterday, didn't play.

-- Glasnow continued his recent domination, throwing six shutout innings in Bradenton's 1-0 win over Jupiter.  He allowed two hits and two walks, and fanned seven.  Josh Bell was 1-2 with a walk, and drove in the only run.  He's now hitting .327.  Jordan Steranka and Taylor Lewis each had two hits.

-- Five strong innings from Borden (pictured) keyed West Virginia to a 2-1 win over Lakewood, stopping the Power's losing streak at 14.  Borden allowed one run on six hits and two walks, and struck out four.  West Virginia managed just four singles.

-- Jamestown lost to Williamsport, 4-2.  Chase Simpson had all but two of the Jammers' hits, going 3-4 with a double.  Jordan Luplow, Kevin Krause, David Andriese and Erik Forgione all made their pro debuts.  Luplow and Krause each went 1-3 with a walk, Andriese 0-3 with a walk, and Forgione 0-4.  Starter Marek Minarik walked four and allowed two runs in four innings.

-- Bristol scored a run in the top of the 9th to tie its opener with Princeton, but lost, 5-2, on a three-run, walkoff HR in the bottom half.  Starter Omar Basulto allowed one run in five innings.  He gave up five hits and two walks, and fanned two.  Michael Clemens and Palmer Betts made their pro debuts with one inning of relief each.  Clemens allowed an unearned run and walked one.  Betts allowed no runs and struck out two.  The Pirates piled up a dozen hits, but did little with them.  Pablo Reyes was 3-4 with a double.  Daniel Arribas, Nathan Tomaszewski and Ulises Montilla all went 2-4.

-- The DSL Pirates lost to the Cubs, 12-6.  Edison Lantigua was 3-4 with a double, a walk and three RBIs.  Jeremias Portorreal was 2-4 with a double.  The pitching was bad.
