Quinn Priester, Pittsburgh Pirates

A day after Endy Rodriguez and Matt Gorski made their Triple-A debuts for the Indianapolis Indians, a couple more Pittsburgh Pirates’ prospects had their first taste of the minor leagues’ highest level Wednesday.

Quinn Priester made his first start with Indianapolis and looked impressive and  Malcom Nunez homered in his first game.

In addition to Priester and Nunez, Colin Selby made his Triple-A debut and tossed a scoreless inning out of the bullpen.

Here are the notable performances from Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Indians (73-70)

RHP Quinn Priester

  • Game: 5.0 innings, two hits, no runs, two walks, six strikeouts
  • Season: 1-0, 0.00 ERA, five innings, two walks, six strikeouts, one game/one start

3B Maclom Nunez

  • Game: 2 for 3 with a home run, an RBI and a walk
  • Season: .667/.750/1.667, one home run, one RBI, one game

Priester’s five scoreless frames were more than enough for Indianapolis in their 7-1 victory over the St. Paul Saints.

Just to be sure, Nunez helped lead the offense with a longball as one of his three times reaching base.

After going 2 for 3 in his first game with the Indians, Rodriguez had three more hits, including a double in the game. He is 5 for 7 through his first two games with Indianapolis. Rodriguez drove in four runs in the win on Wednesday.

Outfielder Jared Oliva continued his solid stretch of play at the plate as he recorded three singles, two runs scored and a stolen base.

Blake Sabol, who was manning left field for Indianapolis, connected on his fifth homer in 19 games since his promotion from Altoona.
