- J. Schafer 2-3 RBI, BB, .221 Avg
None of the Braves pitchers could keep the Bulls from scoring today and their top three did basically what our top four did yesterday going 10-14 with 5 XBH (Matt Joyce went 5-5 with 3 2B). Freddie Freeman hasn't been getting bunches of hits this week but at least he has been getting some doubles (though HRs should be nice). Jordan Schafer spent more time on base today than he has in the last 10 games.
Chattanooga 5, Mississippi 4
- C. Johnson 2-5 2B, 3K, .205 Avg
- M. Minor 3IP 7H 5R 1BB 3K 4.32 ERA
Mike Minor had his second straight rough outing (though only two of the runs were earned) when he gave up 5 runs in the 2nd inning. You can read more about Minor in tomorrow's Hotsheet. Also appearing on the Hotsheet tomorrow will be Cody Johnson who had his first multi-hit game since... well it has been a while, just trust me on that. Despite Minor putting the team at a 5 runs disadvantage the Braves bullpen came on and pitched 6 hitless innings while striking out 8. unfortunately the offense didn't have quite enough to come back from the deficit.
Myrtle Beach 2, Kinston 10
- M. Jones 3-4 K, .526 Avg
- JJ Hoover 1IP 3H 4R 3BB 1K 3.65 ERA
I am not real sure what happened to JJ Hoover in this game and I am wondering if he exited from just pitching terribly or maybe something was bothering him and caused him to pitch poorly and leave early. He doesn't have any injury history that I am aware of but if anyone was there please let us know if you heard anything. Myke Jones continues to hit the ball even after his promotion and you can be sure he will make an appearance on tomorrow's Hotsheet! Also this game produced a great double play: 4-6-3 or Travis Jones-Myke Jones-Mike Jones. Fantastic.

There wasn't really anything else worth noting here as some of the other top performers on the team had off days.
