Prospect Watch: Travis Swaggerty Keys Indy Win

Published:

Indy got a good start from Bryse Wilson, while Jared Jones and Kyle Nicolas both had some good and some bad.

Bradenton was rained out.  They’ll try to play two tomorrow, although I wouldn’t put money on it.

TRIPLE-A: INDIANAPOLIS INDIANS

Game Recap:

Indianapolis (26-25) beat Omaha, 5-2.  Bryse Wilson had a good start, going seven innings on 94 pitches.  He allowed just three hits and a walk over seven innings.  Two of the hits were home runs, accounting for two runs.  Travis Swaggerty led the offense, accounting for all but one of the runs with a double and his fourth home run.  He scored the first Indy run after the double and hit a three-run bomb to put them up, 4-2.  He now has his OPS up to .801 (280/362/439) after a .506 April.  Mason Martin had an RBI double, and Oneil Cruz reached twice, on a single and a hit batsman.  Cam Vieaux threw an inning and a third, and Austin Brice got the last two outs.

DOUBLE-A: ALTOONA CURVE

P2Daily: It’s Altoona Curve Week on Pirates Prospects

Game Time: 6:00pm

Box Score

Starting Pitcher: Kyle Nicolas

  • Final Line: 4.1 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 K

Notable Performances:

  • Matt Gorski 2-4

Game Recap:

Altoona (22-26) lost to Bowie, 3-2.  Kyle Nicolas had a decent-ish start, giving up one earned run and one unearned in four and a third innings.  He struck out six, but needed 84 pitches.  Brad Case worked the last four and two-thirds, allowing one run.  They both had help, as the Curve turned four double plays.  The Altoona offense was hampered by the first four hitters — Matt Fraizer, Jared Triolo, Liover Peguero and Blake Sabol — going a combined 0-for-14.  Triolo and Sabol did manage a walk and run scored each.  The unstoppable Andres Alvarez had two doubles and took part in all four DPs.  Matt Gorski had two singles.

HIGH-A: GREENSBORO GRASSHOPPERS

P2Daily: It’s Greensboro Grasshoppers and Matt Gorski Week on Pirates Prospects

Game Time: 6:30pm

Box Score

Starting Pitcher: Jared Jones

  • Final Line: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K

Notable Performances:

  • Yoyner Fajardo 2-4, HR (2)
  • Endy Rodriguez 0-4
  • Abrahan Gutierrez 1-3, BB

Game Recap:

Greensboro (21-27) lost to Wilmington, 4-3.  Jared Jones once again had trouble going past three or four innings.  In this one he gave up just a single and two walks through four shutout innings, then allowed three runs in the fifth before leaving with two out.  Wandi Montout followed with two and a third shutout innings, fanning five.  Greensboro initially had a 1-0 lead on Yoyner Fajardo’s second home run of the year.  After they fell behind 3-1, Francisco Acuna tied the game with a two-run double in the seventh.  In the top of the eighth, though, Eddy Yean threw a wild pitch that let the go-ahead run score from second.  The Hoppers had a chance in the ninth when two singles put runners at first and second with nobody out.  In imitation of the major league club, though, they had Eli Wilson try to sacrifice and he bunted into a double play, leaving the organizational track record on bunts at 100% stupid.  Fajardo was the only Hopper with two hits, as they had only six.  Hudson Head left the game after being hit by a pitch.

Having followed the Pirates fanatically since 1965, Wilbur Miller is one of the fast-dwindling number of fans who’ve actually seen good Pirate teams. He’s even seen Hall-of-Fame Pirates who didn’t get traded mid-career, if you can imagine such a thing. His first in-person game was a 5-4, 11-inning win at Forbes Field over Milwaukee (no, not that one). He’s been writing about the Pirates at various locations online for over 20 years. It has its frustrations, but it’s certainly more cathartic than writing legal stuff. Wilbur is retired and now lives in Bradenton with his wife and three temperamental cats.
