Pirates Minor Leaguer Alex Presley Hits For Cycle In Third Triple-A Game

And does it by the fifth inning, MILB.com reports. Presley went 5-for-6 in the game. Presley, a small outfielder who had never shown much promise before 2010, is having the best offensive year of any Pirates prospect - he earned himself a promotion from Altoona a few days ago by hitting .350 with 26 extra-base hits there, and he's off to a huge start so far for Indianapolis. He still looks like more of a fluke than a star in the making, but don't be shocked if he's with the Bucs by September - they need all the help they can get.
