Pirates Prospects: Henry Davis Homers Again



Pirates prospects, Henry Davis

Pirates prospects went 3-2 on Saturday as Greensboro and Altoona split their doubleheaders: Indianapolis earned the tiebreaking win with an 8-5 victory over Columbus. The Marauders were the only Pirates’ farm team that didn’t play on Saturday, as rain pushed their game to a Sunday doubleheader.

Indianapolis (10-16)

The Indians took care of business on Saturday, winning 8-5. They had as many hits (seven) as Columbus did but made the most of their chances, drawing ten walks and hitting two home runs. 

RHP Luis Ortiz

Ortiz (2-1, 2.45 ERA) got the start and continued his strong season, allowing two runs in six innings of work. He was far from perfect on the day, allowing five hits and three walks, but showed an excellent ability to pitch through traffic until his final inning, when Columbus tagged him for two runs.

CF Josh Palacios

Palacios starred for the second game in a row, batting in four runs with a pair of homers and a sacrifice fly. He also drew a pair of walks and stole a base, boosting his OPS to 1.478 in seven games with Indy. 

3B Ryan Vilade

Vilade helped set the table for Palacios, going 3-for-5 on the day with two singles, a double and two runs scored.

Altoona (10-9)

2020 first overall pick Henry Davis hit his sixth home run of the season in Altoona’s 4-3 win in Game 1, a two-run blast that scored the eventual game-winning run.

 The Curve managed just two hits in the nightcap (admittedly, a seven inning affair). Alvarez added a double, and first baseman Mason Martin hit a solo homer in the 3-1 loss. 

SS Andrés Alvarez 

Alvarez hit a home run of his own in Game 1, tying the score in the fifth inning. He then hit a double in the second game of the doubleheader.

2B Liover Peguero 

Peguero went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a walk in Game 1. 

RHP Noe Toribio

Toribio worked a six-out save to clinch the win in Game 1, punching out four and allowing one hit, a solo home run.

Greensboro (13-7)

The Grasshoppers dropped the first game of their doubleheader 7-4. Left fielder Head went 2-for-3 in Game 2, hitting a two-run homer along with a single, while shortstop Maikol Escotto hit a home run of his own in the 9-4 win.  

SS Mike Jarvis

Jarvis went 5-of-6 on the day with a pair of home runs, a walk, four RBI and four runs scored. 

2B Tsung-Che Cheng

Cheng hit a three-run bomb in the Grasshoppers’ Game 2 victory, adding a walk and a single on the day. 

Bradenton (13-7)
