Richmond 4, Norfolk 8
- J. Anderson 2-5
- S. Thorman 2-4 2B, HR(15), K
Honestly, there wasn't a whole lot of good that came from this game. Thorman hit a meaningless homer and he appears to turned into somewhat an all or nothing type of guy. I guess we knew that. Damian Moss isn't going to help the team in the future either since he gave up 8 runs in less than 2 innings tonight. But we knew that too.

Kris Medlen's transition from starter to reliever is still a success and he appears to be getting more and more comfortable as the season progresses. We have to remember this guy was a DOMINANT reliever in Rome and Myrlte Beach last year. I don't know why he struggled so much this year as a reliever but as a starter his ERA is now 2.63. Not bad at all.
Myrtle Beach 8, Potomac 0
- G. Hernandez 2-5 2 SB(10)
- B. Hicks 1-3 3B, 2 RBI, BB, 2 K
- T. Jones 2-4 2B, HR(12), 2 RBI, K
- C. Rodriguez 1-3 HR(6), 2 RBI, BB, K
This team really does have a ton of power. Four players have 10+ homers and another 4 have more than 5 long balls. All of that while playing half their games in an offensive vortex. It is also good to see Gorkys stealing some bases again. I guess that hamstring is fully healed.

Tigers 2, Braves 5
- J. Hanson 2-4 K
- L. Hiller 2-3 HR(2), 2 RBI, K
- A. Feliz 3-4 2B, RBI
- B. Oberholtzer 5IP 5H 1R 0BB 6K
I spelled Oberholtzer right on the first try. Feliz is a 20 year old Dominican OF that showed some extra base power last year in the Dominican and so far has been hitting well for the GCL Braves. I can't figure out who this Hanson guy is. Baseball America says we drafter a guy named Jason Hanson, 3B in the 14th Rd. and then MinorLeagueBaseball.com has this guy listed as Jake Hanson, 3B but I can't really find anything about him. I don't think they are the same people, just a weird coincidence of some sort.
