Pirates MiLB recap: 6/28/14

Several hitting streaks got extended and Jamestown continued to show some solid offense.

-- Indianapolis lost to Louisville, 2-1.  Jay Jackson threw five and two-thirds shutout innings, allowing three hits and two walks, and striking out six.  He left with a 1-0 lead, but Josh Wall gave up two runs in the 7th to take the loss.  Wall now sports a 4.97 ERA, with peripherals to match, since his puzzling acquisition.  Matt Hague provided the Indians' lone run with his 11th HR.  Michael Martinez was 3-3 and Chris McGuiness 2-4 with a double.  Tony Sanchez continued to struggle, going 0-3 to drop his AAA average to .192.

-- Altoona fell behind Binghamton 7-0, then battled back with six runs in the 7th inning, only to blow some late chances and lose, 8-7.  Elias Diaz and Willy Garcia were each 3-5 with a double, Matt Curry 2-4 with a double and Jarek Cunningham 2-4.  Stetson Allie returned from the disabled list to go 1-4.  Alen Hanson was 0-6 and stranded eight runners.  Dilson Herrera went 4-5 with a HR and five RBIs for the Curve Binghamton.  Starter Zack Dodson gave up five runs in six innings.

-- Bradenton scored two in the top of the 8th to tie its game with St. Lucie, but lost, 4-3, when Robby Rowland gave up a walkoff HR to the first hitter in the bottom of the 9th.  Josh Bell, for whom FSL pitching seems to hold no more mysteries, was 3-4 with a double to extend his hitting streak to 14 games,  He's now batting .337.  Jordan Steranka went 3-4 with his fifth HR.  Adam Frazier went 1-5 to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.  Starter John Kuchno gave up two runs in six innings.

-- West Virginia beat Lakewood, 4-3.  Harold Ramirez (pictured) went 3-5 with a triple to extend his hitting streak to 20 games and raise his average to .303.  JaCoby Jones returned from the disabled list (and was replaced there by Wyatt Mathisen) to go 2-3 with a double.  Jeff Roy and Ashley Ponce also each had a single and a double.  Dovydas Neverauskas allowed three runs, two earned, over six innings.

-- Jamestown exploded for eight runs in the 6th and went on to a 12-5 win over Mahoning Valley.  Kevin Krause was 2-3 with two doubles and four RBIs, while Taylor Gushue reached base five times, going 3-3 with a double, a walk and a hit batsman.  Kevin Ross was 2-5 with his first HR and three RBIs, Carl Anderson 3-6, Tyler Filliben 2-5 with a double, and Michael Fransoso 1-4 with a triple and three RBIs.  Frank Duncan gave up five runs in four and two-thirds innings, but three relievers allowed no runs in four and a third.

-- Bristol got shut out by Elizabethton, 6-0.  The Pirates had just five hits, all singles.  Starter Billy Roth gave up three runs, one earned in three and a third innings.  He allowed four hits and two walks, and struck out four.

-- The GCL Pirates edged the Astros, 4-3.  Yoel Gonzalez was 3-4 with a double.  Cole Tucker went 2-4, but also committed two errors and got picked off base.  Starter Dario Agrazal gave up three runs, all unearned, on five hits in four innings.  He walked none and struck out one.  Four relievers combined for five shutout innings.
