Two Pirate Prospects Shine Today

Two players that the Pirates are counting on to have a role in the team’s future had encouraging outings this afternoon.

Clay Holmes and Austin Meadows starred as AAA Indianapolis beat Charlotte, 3-2, for their fourth straight win.

The bigger story is Meadows starting to find his stroke at the plate. The Pirates top prospect collected a season-high 3 hits including a double off the wall.

For the season, Meadows is still only hitting .215 but most people in Indianapolis believe it’s only a matter of time before he goes on an extended tear at the plate.

On the mound, Holmes turned in his best outing of the 2017 season. The 24-year old went a season-high seven innings, allowing only two runs, no walks and struck out eight batters.

Holmes threw 81 pitches with 54 of those being strikes. Prior to allowing a home run in the seventh inning, Holmes retired 18 of the last 21 batters.

Holmes was the Pirates 9th round pick back in 2011 and is fully healthy after recovering from Tommy John surgery in 2014.
