Greensboro gets walked off by Greenville

Triple-A Indianapolis was not the only Pirate farm club to get walked off on Sunday afternoon. The High-A Greensboro Grasshoppers suffered a 6-5 walk off loss against the Greenville Drive, falling to 33-28 on the season.

Tres Gonzalez was 1-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored at the top of the Greensboro lineup. Tsung-Che Cheng was just 1-for-4, but that lone hit was his 9th home run of the season. It's time for Cheng to get to Double-A.

Mike Jarvis went 2-for-5 with a triple, a run scored, and a RBI. Second baseman Maikol Escotto was 2-for-4, Sammy Siani was 1-for-4 with a RBI, and catcher Wyatt Hendrie was 1-for-3 with a walk, a run scored, and a RBI.

Bubba Chandler started for Greensboro and continued to struggle. Chandler pitched just 3.2 innings, allowing 3 runs on six hits, walk, a home run, and three strikeouts. He threw 42 of 63 pitches for strikes and his ERA on the season now sits at 6.44.

Michell Miliano pitched 1.1 scoreless innings and Grant Ford allowed a solo home run while walking/striking out two in 1 inning pitched. In the 9th inning Cy Nielson, who has pitched extremely well this season, was charged with a pair of runs leading to the walk off loss. Part of that was Dante Mendoza taking over for Nielson and failing to strand the runners he inherited.
