Pirates Prospect Watch: Bradenton Erupts For 16 Runs



Pirates prospects, Termarr Johnson

Among the Pittsburgh Pirates prospects who stood out on Wednesday were a whole bunch of position players with Low-A Bradenton.

The Marauders exploded for 16 runs on 18 hits and scored at least one run in each of the first seven innings of the game.

Looking at the lineup, eight of the nine players had at least one hit while six players drove in at least one run in a complete team effort at the plate.

The club went 10 for 26 with runners in scoring position — maybe the big league club should take notes.
