In Saturday’s version of Pirates Prospects Daily, we highlighted several top prospects who displayed their skills, including Mike Burrows, who pitched a scoreless inning during the Futures Game during All-Star week. Sunday afternoon/evening, several Pirates prospects deserve some highlighting, and yes, Bubba Chandler is one of them. You people just can’t get enough of Chandler.

Carlos Jimenez pitched a brilliant five innings for the Pirates Single-A club in game one of the doubleheader. Bubba Chandler decided to grow a clutch gene and delivered the games only run in walk-off fashion for a sac-fly.
