Prospect Highlights: Clutch Hitting From Alen Hanson, Jaff Decker on Recent Hot Streak

In the seventh inning of the Altoona Curve game last night, they trailed 7-1, but had a chance to get back in the game with Alen Hanson up and the bases loaded. The video below is Hanson slapping a single by the second baseman into right field to make the score 7-2. Earlier in the game, he drove in the Curve’s first run with a sacrifice fly and he also had a double last night, so while Altoona lost 8-4, Hanson still had a pretty good game.

Our second highlight is from Jaff Decker, who may be turning around a disappointing season. In his last five games, he is 9-for-15 with five doubles and a home run. One of those doubles was from last night, a two-run opposite field shot that went over the left fielder’s head.

  • I still can’t figure out why Decker instead of Morel was not called up, a fast leadoff guy would be much more important than a guy that can only play 3rd base.
