Endy Rodriguez impressed in his Double-A debut, Jack Brannigan continued his strong start at Low-A and more in Tuesday’s Pittsburgh Pirates minor league recap

Triple-A Indianapolis suffered a 5-1 loss against the Memphis Redbirds on Tuesday night. Following the loss, the top farm club of the Pittsburgh Pirates fell to 51-53 on the season.

Miguel Yajure started for Indianapolis. After posting three zeroes to start the game, the wheels fell off the cart for Yajure in the 4th inning when he allowed 4 runs. Yajure’s final line was 4 runs allowed on six hits, a walk, a home run, and two strikeouts in 4 innings pitched. Yajure has struggled with both the Indianapolis Indians and the Pittsburgh Pirates this season, which is setting up for a potentially tumultuous offseason for the righty.

Johan Oviedo followed Yajure. In his debut with the Pirate organization, Oviedo allowed a hit and struck a batter out in a scoreless inning pitched. This was followed by a scoreless inning from John O’Reilly. After Joe Jaques allowed a run in the 7th inning, Hunter Stratton would pitch a scoreless 8th.

Leadoff man Hoy Park was 1-for-4 for the Indians. Designated hitter Brendt Citta was 1-for-4 and right fielder Jared Oliva was 1-for-3. The rest of the Indian lineup was a combined 0-for-19 with two walks.
