Pirates Prospect Watch: Charles McAdoo Continues Hot Streak



Pirates left-handed pitching prospect Michael Kennedy winds up to pitch.

Pirates’ minor league affiliates couldn’t pull off any wins on Saturday night, with each of the three teams that played losing tough one score decisions.

Triple-A Indianapolis saw their game postponed due to inclement weather for the second consecutive night: they’ll make up Friday’s game as part of a Sunday doubleheader, meaning that Saturday’s game has been postponed to an undetermined date.

The Altoona Curve fell 5-4 to the Akron Rubber Ducks, surrendering the game-winning RBI single in the top of the ninth inning. High-A Greensboro lost 6-5 despite a three-run homer from Charles McAdoo, who continues to tear it up at the plate.

The Bradenton Marauders fell 3-2 after a tenth inning walk-off despite an excellent start from left-hander Michael Kennedy.
