Quinn Priester dominates again, an extra innings walk-off victory for Greensboro and more in Saturday’s Pittsburgh Pirates minor league roundup
The Indianapolis Indians have now won four games in a row. Following a 4-1 victory over the Louisville Bats on Saturday night, the Triple-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates have ridden this recent hot stretch to a 66-60 record.
Hoy Park started at second base and bat leadoff for the Indians. Park went 3-for-4 with his 9th home run of the season, two runs scored and two RBI. Diego Castillo was 1-for-4 with a double and Ji-Hwan Bae was 1-for-4 with a run scored. Travis Swaggerty hit his 14th double of the season, and Blake Sabol was 2-for-4. Sabol now owns a 1.009 OPS since being promoted to Triple-A.
Osvaldo Bido started for the Indians and pitched 6 masterful innings. Bido allowed just one hit, walked a batter and struck out seven. This came as he shut the Bat offense out across his 6 innings pitched.
Cody Bolton was then summoned out of the Indian bullpen. Bolton allowed a solo home run in his lone inning of work. However, he did not walk a batter and still struck out a pair while pitching the 7th inning.
