Several Pirates off to hot starts in AFL

It hasn’t been a good start overall for the Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League, as the team has started 0-5, with the main culprit being some un-even pitching, as the team holds a collective 6.50 ERA and a 1.782 WHIP. But that hasn’t stopped some Pittsburgh Pirates hitters from getting off to hot starts at the plate.

Both Nick Gonzalez and Ji-Hwan Bae have hit the ball pretty well, with Bae seeing time at second base and batting lead off. He’s currently swatting .333/.421/.600 and has hit a double, a homer, and three RBIs along with stealing a base.
