Pirates Prospect Watch: Keiner Delgado Continues to Crush, Bae Has Huge Game



Pirates Prospects, ji-hwan bae

Pirates’ minor league affiliates picked up two wins on Thursday night, with Keiner Delgado hitting his third home run in four games since Pittsburgh acquired him from the New York Yankees via trade.

After struggling as a closer to start the year, the Indianapolis Indians tried Geronimo Franzua’s hand as an opener. He pitched three innings—allowing just one unearned run—to get things going in a 9-6 win over the Louisville Bats.

Double-A Altoona lost 7-4 to the Somerset Patriots. The bullpen hemorrhaged six runs across the seventh and eighth innings, erasing the advantage gained from six innings of one-run ball courtesy of Po-Yu Chen.

The Greensboro Grasshoppers dropped both games of their doubleheader, unable to keep pace with the Bowling Green Hot Rods in Game 1, a 6-3 loss, before their bullpen couldn’t secure a late lead in Game 2, eventually falling 8-7.

Single-A Bradenton hit four home runs on the way to an 8-3 win. Carlson Reed struck out seven batters in five innings, dropping his ERA to 1.75 on the season and powering the Marauders to their seventh consecutive victory.
