Richmond 3, Scranton/WB 4
- B. Canizares 2-4 2B, HR(12), 2 RBI
- D. Hernandez 2-4
- J. Parr 6IP 1H 1R 2BB 4K
Well James Parr is getting better with each of his starts in AAA and really pitched well tonight. As I have said, I don't know if this guy will be a starter in the majors but he has been compared to a poor man's Kyle Davies in the past (would that make him Good Davies or Evil Davies?). He will get a chance at some point with the Braves I believe and he probably deserves to be on someones prospect list.

Frederick 0, Myrtle Beach 10
- G. Hernandez 1-3 2B, 3 BB, K
- E. Campbell 1-3 HR(13), 3 BB, K
- E. Mejia 2-3 2B, HR(14), 3 RBI, 2 BB
- T. Jones 2-5 2B, 4 RBI
- J. Owings 3-5 3B, SB(9)
If Tyler Flowers had played in this game he would have walked 11 times. Eric Campbell continues to hit well this month, raising his average to .263 and his SLG to .505. I wonder if he will be a trade chip if not now in the off season. Gorkys Hernandez has been pretty bad at the play in July but he has been ok in his past 10 games so he might be recovering a little. Ryne Reynoso also pitched 6 strong innings in this one.
Rome 0, West Virginia 7
- J. Heyward 1-4 K
- R. Sullivan 4.2IP 8H 4R 0BB 1K
I'm going to see the last game in this set tomorrow at noon. I wish Heyward or Freeman were in the middle of one of their hot streaks. Richard Sullivan is a draft pick of ours out of SCAD this year and was promoted pretty quick to Rome. He is a big lefty with decent stuff and throws from a quirky delivery apparently. A lot of people seem to like him though and he could have some room to learn since he was playing at an NAIA school.
Pulaski 0, Danville 1 (Final 7.1 Innings)
- J. Gilmore 1-3 2B
- D. Francis 6IP 0H 0R 2 BB 16K
- M. Small 0.1IP 0H 0R 0BB 0K
Seriously, 16 strikeouts? Just look again for a second. Got it? Cause the guy MAN recorded 18 total outs. So only two people got out in some ways other than a strike out. Thats pretty impressive. Actually even more impressive is he got the elusive 4 strike out inning in the 4th. Francis throws in the low 90s with a curve and change but something must have been working for him tonight.
Yankees 4, Braves 5
- D. Delgado 4.1IP 3H 0R 1BB 4K
Dimaster Delgado is supposed to be one of our top foreign signings from recent years and so far he is doing well in his first 6 games of complex ball. He has only allowed runs to score in 2 of his 6 outings and has 23K in 22IP and has only given up 6 BB.
