Gwinnett 5, Columbus 7
- M. Young 3-5 2B, SB(12), .300 Avg
- B. Canizares 2-5 HR(4), 2 RBI, K, .310 Avg
- J. Schafer 1-4 HR(1), 2K, .219 Avg
Matt Young gets his average up to .300 for the first time this year and now has 9 hits in his last 3 games. Young is having a pretty good all around season and I still contend he should get a shot in Atlanta at some point. Jordan Schafer touched off for his first HR of the season and now has a very modest 5 game hitting streak (just one hit in each of those games).
Mobile 5, Mississippi 3
- W. Cabrera 1-2 2B, 2 BB, CS(5), .312 Avg
- J. Sucre 2-4 2 2B, .407 Avg
- M. Minor 7IP 9H 2R 1BB 8K 4.03 ERA
The good Mike Minor showed up for Mississippi tonight and pitched well enough to get the win but Benino Pruneda and Tyler Palica gave up a combined 3 runs in the top of the 9th inning to lose the game. Minor is now up to 109 Ks in just 87 innings pitched this year. That is a stat I would never have guessed at the beginning of the season. My boy Willie keeps on hitting.
Myrtle Beach 7, Potomac 4
- LV Ware 2-5 2B, 2 RBI, K, CS(2), .256 Avg
- C. Harrilchak 2-5 2B, 2 RBI, K, CS(1), .216 Avg
- A. Vizcaino 5IP 3H 1R 0BB 4K 4.61 ERA
Arodys Vizcaino looks to have made some adjustments in this game and came out finished with something akin to his last month in the Sally League. Yeliar Castro relieved him in the 6th inning and promptly allowed 3 runs to vulture the win for himself. Cory Harrilchak and LV Ware posted exactly the same line score tonight which kind of creeps me out.
Rome 6, Lexington 3
- J. Hanson 1-3 2B, RBI, .265 Avg
- B. Schlehuber 2-4 2B, 2 RBI, .207 Avg
- B. DeVall 6.2IP 9H 3R 1BB 4K 3.95 ERA
Brett DeVall continues his comeback from offseason arm surgery with a fairly impressive start. Brett has allowed 2 ER or less in 6 of his last 7 starts and while his hits allowed are high and his Ks are low you have to be encouraged by his outing. His defense really tried to give it away tonight with 4 errors on the infield (one from DeVall himself).
Danville 9, Bluefield 4
- R. Flores 2-5 2B, K, .294 Avg
- J. Terdoslavich 2-5 2B, RBI, .250 Avg
- E. Gattis 2-4 2 2B, 2 RBI, K, .500 Avg
- L. La Point 5IP 3H 1R 2BB 6K 1.80 Avg
Danville pounded out 14 hits in their rout of Bluefield improving their record to 4-0 on the season. All but one starter had at least one hit and Lucas La Point pitching a pretty solid ball game. La Point was taken by the Braves in last years draft in the 23rd round and is just 19 years old. He pitched a few games last year and was solid but with some control issues. Danville also has to be trying to make my job much harder with names like Terdoslavich and Kleinkneicht on the roster this season.
GCL Pirates 9, GCL Braves 6
- E. Reyes 2-4 HR(1), 2 RBI, SB(3), .368 Avg
- D. Rohm 2-5 .471 Avg
- K. Fleming 3-5 CS(1), .273 Avg
- R. De Los Santos 2-3 .750 Avg
The GCL team knocks out 14 hits on the day but the pitching staff couldn't keep up with the offense. David Rohm continues to hit the ball and 19 year old Elmer Reyes has been pretty impressive so far with 5 RBI and a hit in a every game. I feel like for once the Braves have more interesting bats than arms on their rookie level teams.
