Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 8/10

I am going on vacation starting tomorrow so I am not sure if I will be up to date on the updates or not. I shouldn't miss more than a couple though.

Durham 3, Gwinnett 6

  • G. Blanco 2-3 2 RBI
  • O. Infante 1-3 HR(1), 2 RBI
  • B. Jones 2-4

Gwinnett is now tied for the division lead! Hopefully they can put together a hot streak this month and run into the playoffs! This series with Durham will help since they are the co-leaders. Brandon Jones continues his hot August with a .360 AVG and an .800(!!!!) SLG for the month so far. Where did this come from?

Mississippi 2, Huntsville 8

  • B. Hicks 2-3 2 2B, BB
  • J. Heyward 1-4 3B, RBI

Jason Heyward is only hitting .385 in August (GASP!). But he does have 5 XBH in 9 games. Don't be fooled by Brandon Hicks. He has been pretty horrible in every month this season never posting an OPS over .662.

Myrtle Beach - Off


Rome 2, Hagerstown 1

  • Y. Campusano 3-4 K, SB(10), CS(5)
  • A. Milligan 2-4 2B, RBI
  • JJ Hoover 6IP 7H 1R 3BB 5K

Man, three whole walks for JJ Hoover? Thats like a meltdown for him. And he was still lights out. John Sickels loves Hoover, so me being the sheep that I am, love him too. Ok and his amazing K/BB ratio helps. Adam Milligan keeps on doing his thing. He has actually been better in August than he was in July.

Danville @ Princeton - RAIN

GCL Braves 4, GCL Tigers 1

  • K. Rose 2-5 RBI, K
  • C. Bethancourt 0-2 RBI, 2 BB
  • R. Lopez 6IP 1H 0R 1BB 5K

Robinson Lopez has just been dealing in the GCL. His ERA is a paltry 1.11 now with 28K in 32+ innings of work. He is only 18 years old so it will be interesting to see if they jump him to Rome next year or run him into Danville first. I would guess he gets a shot at Danville first. Rome will probably have its own share of guys.
