- J. Thurston 1-3 HR(7), K, .238 Avg
- M. Dunn 1IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K 0.65 ERA
Gwinnett scattered their hits all over the place tonight and Joey Thurston got a HR too little, too late. Jo Jo Reyes gave up 4 runs (2 earned) in 5 innings with 2 HR allowed. Mike Dunn is still fan-freaking-tastic and I don't know what the Braves are going to do with their surplus of pitching in the minors, especially all of the relievers.Jordan Schafer started the game in CF but gave way to Alex Romero after just a couple of innings. I am not sure why so if anyone has any details feel free to share.
Chattanooga 4, Mississippi 1
- E. Cordier 6IP 4H 1R 2BB 4K 3.99 ERA
There wasn't a whole lot going on in this game. Eric Cordier pitched solidly but his offense and bullpen didn't do him any favors. Eric Duncan and Donell Linares both left this game pretty early on but I have no idea why. If anyone else does know please fill us in in the comments section.

- J. Sucre 1-4 HR(4), BB, 2K, .214 Avg
- M. Crim 8IP 5H 0R 2BB 9K 3.80 ERA
Matt Crim hasn't been bad this season and this start was his best one of the year. It isn't that he has been bad or really good, he has just been consistently mediocre so far and he is another that may get lost in the shuffle of Braves pitching prospects. His peripherals are pretty bad honestly but tonight they were fantastic and I am always going to root for a Citadel guy.

- R. Hefflinger 3-5 2B, RBI, K, .275 Avg
- S. Kent 1IP 2H 0R 0BB 2K
I feel like Steve Kent has been around forever but he is just 21 years old. He was a non-drafted free agent the Braves signed out of Australia in 2005(!!!) and he pitched two seasons in the GCL and one in the Appy league but missed all of last season from injury. He finally made his full season debut tonight and I don't know how he is going to be used going forward but scouting reports on his stuff were pretty good back in the day so I can't wait to see what he can do.
