Gwinnett 15, Columbus 4
- R. Gorecki 4-6 2 2B, 3B, 2 RBI
- C. Burke 4-6 2 2B, RBI
- B. Jones 3-6 2B, 2 RBI, 2K
- A. Colina 3-5 2 HR(5), 5 RBI, BB
- J. Reyes 7IP 5H 0R 1BB 1K
An offensive explosion from Gwinnett! The team put together a total of 21 hits with 10 of them going for extra bases. JoJo Reyes pitched pretty well, inducing a lot of groundouts and not walking guys. He only threw 80 pitches but I assume he is still on a strict count. This is definitely a nice way to start the final month of the season.
Montgomery @ Mississippi - RAIN
Kinston 7, Myrtle Beach 0
- M. Fisher 2-4 K
- CJ Lee 1-3 2B, K
There actually some decent pitching performances from our minor league games tonight. Some of them were against us. Kinston's starting pitcher left the game after striking out one batter and then the relief corps came in and shut the Pelicans down for the rest of the game.
Asheville 3, Rome 7 - Completed in 6 innings due to rain
- Y. Campusano 2-3 2 RBI, BB
- L. Sumoza 4-4 2 2B, 4 RBI
- R. Delgado 6IP 6H 3R 0BB 7K
Yoel Campusano finished July hitting .348/.397/.518 and it looks like he is picking up where he left off to start August. Luis Sumoza has posted consecutive sub .600 OPS months. May is the only month he has been over .700 for year (.793). He hasn't hit any homers since May either. Hopefully this is the start of a turnaround for him. July was the best month of the season for Randall Delgado who posted a 3.00 ERA and struck out 28 batters in 27 innings. His walks were still high (15) but he is inducing ground balls pretty well and looks like he is turning his season around a bit.
Danville 0, Bristol 1 - Game 1 - 9 Innings (these were extra)
- C. Masters 8IP 4H 1R 1BB 8K
Chris Masters came out dealing in this game. Too bad the Bristol pitchers were a little bit better. Actually Masters only run was unearned (an error by the catcher led to the run). Masters has a 47/4 K/BB in 39.2 IP so far this season. I have been told by team that these are acceptable stats.
Danville 4, Bristol 1 - Game 2 - 7 Innings
- LV Ware 3-3 2B, RBI, CS(2)
- RSF 1-3 2B, RBI
- B. Oberholtzer 6.1IP 4H 1R 0BB 7K
Here we have another excellent pitching performance that did not go to waste. Oberholtzer has been every bit as good as Masters with a 35/5 K/BB in 38IP and a 1.42 ERA. These two guys along with Teheran really give us some options going into next season. It feels like the Braves always have good LHP prospects and Oberholtzer and Masters are a testament to that.Lets hope they can carry it to the next level.
