Pirates Minor Leaguer Alex Presley Perfect In Loss

New, 1 comment

Bucs minor leaguer Alex Presley's inexplicably great season just got a little more great tonight, as he went 5-for-5 for Indianapolis in their 10-8 loss to Lehigh Valley. Presley, you might recall, hit for the cycle a few weeks ago, shortly after being promoted to Indianapolis. His performance tonight brings his average at Indianapolis up to .356; he batted .350 at Class AA Altoona before that. Strangely, Presley never looked like much of a prospect before this year - he was utterly forgettable for Class A+ Lynchburg in 2009. He seems to be doing everything possible to get the Bucs to take notice.
