Prospect Highlights: Home Runs From Tony Sanchez and Stetson Allie

Indianapolis won 7-5 on Thursday night in a game that included half the runs scored in the ninth inning. Half of those six runs came off the bat of Tony Sanchez, who hit his first home run since being sent to AAA.

The Altoona Curve swept the Harrisburg Senators Thursday night with their 6-1 win. Stetson Allie homered for the third game in a row, his sixth homer of the season. Tyler Sample pitched six shutout innings, striking out eight batters and Willy Garcia had two extra base hits. All those highlights and more, can be found in the link below.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
