VIDEO: Jordy Mercer Bomb, Andrew Lambo Grand Slam, Pirates Minor League Stats


The Indianapolis Indians were walk off winners.  Andy Oliver did some impressive work with his 94-mile-per-hour fastball.  Check out Jordy Mercer crush a baseball for his first homer of the season at the 2:15 mark.    Jared Goedert walked off the Mud Hens and cranked up the victory bell.

The Altoona Curve got some serious production from Andrew Lambo who hit for the cycle.  Some quotes from the MiLB site.

“Honestly, I thought I walked on a close call and then [the umpire] called it a strike, but I wasn’t thinking about [the cycle],” the California native said. “I got the head out and the guy threw a good pitch; fortunately, I got the barrel on the ball and it took off. I came back to the dugout and it kinda hit me, ‘Wow, I did the cycle in four at-bats.’ It was a pretty cool night, I’m definitely happy. As a team, we put it to them tonight.”

Lambo missed most of last year after he had surgery on his right wrist.  He is crushing the ball with Altoona and just missed a cycle on April 6.  Lambo’s numbers are all listed below…gotta love the ten hits.

"“It was a great individual night, but also a great team night,” said Lambo. “I definitely won’t forget it. I’ve never done that, period, so it’s definitely a big accomplishment."

Cool video on Jared Hughes pitching in Altoona that rolls into a video on Pedro Alvarez too…

Those four Alen Hanson errors have me very curious when I look at the Bradenton Marauders numbers.

The West Virginia Power stats with impressive power from Stetson Allie….along with nine punch outs.
