Pirates Prospect Watch: Curve Score Double-Digit Runs Second Day in a Row



Pirates Prospects, Liover Peguero

Just as they did on Wednesday, the Altoona Curve offense was again firing on all cylinders with a double-digit performance from the offense.

Several Pittsburgh Pirates’ prospects such as Liover Peguero and Lolo Sanchez were among the top contributors in Double-A on Thursday.

Some lesser-known Pirates’ prospects had notable performances in the minor league system, perhaps vying for more conversation. Here are the players who stood out.

Indianapolis (5-7)

DH Nick Gonzales

  • Game stats: 1 for 4, one triple, one run
  • Season stats: .195/.327/.415, one double, one triple, two home runs, four RBIs, 12 games

The Indians dropped their third straight game in their 3-2 loss to the St. Paul Saints. Gonzales hit his first triple of the season while Stratton tossed a couple nice innings in relief.

Catcher Endy Rodriguez was 1 for 4 and threw out a runner attempting to steal third base.

One day after scoring 17 runs, the Altoona Curve scored 10 times on Thursday but a bullpen meltdown led to a 13-10 loss to the Erie SeaWolves in 10 innings.

Sanchez and Peguero helped to pace the offense. Mason Martin drove in a pair and stole his second base of the season. Catcher Dylan Shockley went 2 for 4 with two runs scored.
