Young Bucs sweep up Minors' weekly honors

DETROIT -- Players in the Pirates organization dominated Minor League play last week, collecting a trio of Player of the Week awards.

Matt Hague, who saw extensive action with the '12 Bucs, led off the haul as Player of the Week in the Triple-A International League after collecting seven extra-base blows among his eight hits for the week.

Stetson Allie, the former pitching prospect who transitioned to the other side of the ball less than a year ago, keeps racking up offensive awards. West Virginia's DH/first baseman was named the Double-A South Atlantic League's Player of the Week for after batting .517 with 15 RBIs.

It's the second POW award of the season for Allie, a No. 2 pick as a pitcher in the 2010 First-Year Player Draft who resurfaced as a position player last June. For the season he is hitting .340 with 13 homers and 47 RBIs in 49 games.

Finally, shortstop Alen Hanson picked up the Class A Florida State League Player of the Week award after going 9-for-21.
