Pirates Minor League Report: Chandler, Jimenez Excel in Relief



Bubba Chandler, Pittsburgh Pirates, Pirates prospects

Pirates’ affiliates picked up three wins on Sunday, with strong pitching performances from Bubba Chandler and Carlos Jimenez.

Chandler picked up a win in relief for the Altoona Curve, who toppled the Richmond Flying Squirrels 6-4. Dustin Peterson hit two home runs and Joe Perez added a dinger of his own, together accounting for all the scoring.

Greensboro got boat raced 18-5 by the Jersey Shore BlueClaws, with five hits and three walks nowhere near enough to keep up with the onslaught.

The Bradenton Marauders leapt out to a double digit lead in the first two innings against the Clearwater Threshers, riding the wave to a 10-2 win. Carlos Jimenez punched out eight batters across four innings out of the bullpen, while Javier Rivas and Axiel Plaz hit home runs.

Triple-A Indianapolis, meanwhile, managed just three hits in their 8-3 loss to the Columbus Clippers.
