- W. Timmons 2-5 2B, 2 RBI, SB(12), .285 Avg
- D. Hernandez 4-5 2 RBI,SB(2), .333 Avg
- M. Young 3-5 .293 Avg
- J. Jurrjens 6IP 7H 4R 1BB 1K
- S. Marek 1IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K 1.50 ERA
Jair Jurrjens continues his comeback trail tonight by pitching a solid game though I am not at all thrilled about his peripherals. He threw just 81 pitches and induced 12 groundouts vs just 3 flyouts. Diory Hernandez celebrated his return to the 40 man roster with a bunch of hits but I still have no clue why we have him back on the roster. Freddie Freeman also ended his 9 game hit streak but still collected an RBI and a BB.
Mobile 1, Mississippi 2
- W. Cabrera 1-4 2B, .311 Avg
- D. Linares 2-3 .253 Avg
- B. Beachy 7IP 2H 0R 2BB 7K 1.27 ERA
Brandon Beachy is turning into Kris Medlen 2.0. Beachy has pitched most of his career out of the pen (though with 8 starts for Myrtle Beach last season) but switched to starting last game - not unlike Kris Medlen did in AA a couple years ago - and has excelled in his two starts thus far - not unlike Kris Medlen a couple years ago. Beachy is 23 years old but could they catch lightening in a bottle twice in a row like this? More likely they are just getting him some extra innings, but if he can keep doing this he could force their hand like Medlen did.
Myrtle Beach 1, Potomac 2
- C. Harrilchak 1-4 .188 avg
- Mi. Jones 2-3 RBI, BB, K, .261 Avg
- M. Crim 7IP 6H. 2R 0BB 3K 4.28 ERA
Matt Crim - the forgotten man in the Myrtle Beach rotation -has been fairly inconsistent in his last 6 games giving up 5, 1, 5, 0, 9, and 2 runs during that span. Tonight his only real blemishes were a couple of solo HR given up in the 6th and 7th innings. Unfortunately the offense had nothing for him. Cory Harrilchak also made his return to the Beach and can make a claim to stay this time around.
Rome 2, Lexington 13
- R. Hefflinger 2-4 K, .273 Avg
- RSF 1-3 BB. .278 Avg
- R. Lopez 1IP 4H 5R 1BB 0K 3.58 ERA
Robinson Lopez did not bring his A-game to the park tonight. He got 2 of the first 3 batters he faced out and then the flood gates opened after he hit a batter, loaded the bases, walked a run in and then gave up a double and a couple more singles to firmly cement a very bad inning. On the bright side RSF returned to full season ball after his wrist/hand surgery sidelined him for a couple months. Don't expect a whole lot of power from him right away as we all know these wrist injuries can take time.
Danville 7, Princeton 3
- R. Flores 2-5 RBI, 2K
- E. Gattis 2-4 2 RBI
- A. Northcraft 5IP 3H 1R 1BB 4K
- T. Stovall 1IP 1H 0R 0BB 2K
I just realized that the Princeton team plays about an hour and a half from my house and I am pretty upset that I did not know until tonight. Otherwise I would have been there watching the D-Braves kick butt. A big win from tonight however is that fact that Tyler Stovall made an appearance without walking anyone. Also I don't know how I feel about him making a 1 inning relief appearance. I am ready for him to be starting somewhere preferably higher up the ladder.
GCL Braves 5, GCL Blue Jays 2
- E. Reyes 1-3 K, 2 HBP
- F. De Los Santos 2-5
- D. Rohm 2-5 2B, RBI
- E. Sanchez 1-5 2B, RBI, 2K
- C. Browsten 2-4 3B, RBI
- W. Kempf 4IP 3H 0R 1BB 6K
The GCL Braves keep on rolling by pounding out a bunch of hits and getting solid pitching. David Rohm is supposed to have a good bad but just no but no defined position yet and the surprising thing about him is he is just 20 years old. I could envision him pulling off something like Adam Milligan did last year splitting time between Danville and Rome with a good showing.
