Pirates’ affiliates picked up two wins to open their new week of games on Tuesday, with Dominic Perachi continuing his excellent season for the Greensboro Grasshoppers.

Triple-A Indianapolis breezed past the Louisville Bats 8-2, with homers from Seth Beer, Matt Fraizer and Liover Peguero. 2019 first round pick Quinn Priester went five innings, allowing just one run. 

The Altoona Curve lost 3-1 to the Harrisburg Senators, managing just four hits—all singles—but stringing three of them together in the seventh inning to scrape a run across. 

Greensboro powered past the Aberdeen IronBirds 6-1 thanks to five scoreless innings from Dominic Perachi and a Nick Cimillo homer, while the Bradenton Marauders lost 6-4 to Fort Myers after a rare down night from Carlson Reed.
