Pirates minor league affiliates went 3-2 on Saturday, with the Indianapolis Indians sweeping their doubleheader—largely thanks to continued standout performances from the bats of Liover Peguero and Nick Gonzales—and Hudson Head helping the Greensboro Grasshoppers snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with a three-run walkoff home run. The Altoona Curve didn’t fare so well, falling 5-2 despite a late offensive push, while the Bradenton Marauders lost their contest with the Clearwater Threshers by a lopsided 13-2 margin.
