Carlos Perez picked up his second win of the season for Danville, allowing just 2 unearned runs while striking out 8.

Gwinnett 3, Durham 0

  • M. Young 1-3, 2B, BB, .304 AVG
  • F. Freeman 2-4, 2B, .285 AVG
  • B. Canizares 1-3, 2B, RBI, BB, .309 AVG
  • M. Jones 1-4, HR (14), RBI, .260 AVG
  • J. Thurston 2-4, HR (7), RBI, .249 AVG
  • T. Redmond 7 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 2 BB, 7 K, W (8), 3.92 ERA
  • C. Kimbrel 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 1 K, SV (11), 0.95 ERA
  • Matt Young and Freddie Freeman stay hot, with Freeman extending his hitting streak to 9 games. Mitch Jones has been exactly what the Braves expected him to be when they signed him. After leading Gwinnett with 9 wins last season, Todd Remond already has 8 this year. He's been a little off and on this year, but he's actually been a lot better than last season. Craig Kimbrel is awesome, ho hum.

    Mississippi 1, Birmingham 2

  • A. Richardson 1-2, BB, SB (9), .291 AVG
  • L. Bolivar 2-2, HR (2), RBI, .305 AVG
  • S. Diamond 7.2 IP, 2 ER, 6 H, 2 BB, 4 K, 3.68 ERA
  • After spending most of May and June with Gwinnett, Luis Bolivar was sent back to Mississippi this week, and he's making a case to head back up to AAA, going 8-15 with 2 homers in the 5 games since his return. Nobody deserves to lose if they only give up 2 runs in 7.2 innings, but Scott Diamond's offense let him down. Diamond's on a nice little roll, with a 2.20 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP in his last 5 starts. He could stand to give up a few less hits, but he's really been pitching well.

    Myrtle Beach 0, Salem 2

  • C. Harrilchak 1-3, 2B, .225 AVG
  • J. Teheran 5 IP, 2 ER, 2 H, 4 BB, 6 K, 2.92 ERA
  • Despite taking the loss, Julio Teheran made a nice comeback after allowing 8 earned runs in his last start. He had more walks than he had in any previous start with the Pelicans, actually as many as he had in his last 3 starts combined. Myke Jones' 8 game hitting streak ended as he went 0-4 in the game.

    Rome 6, Greensboro 4

  • R. Flores 1-4, 2B, RBI, SB (3), OF Assist, .243 AVG
  • RSF 2-4, 2B, RBI, .321 AVG
  • T. Cunningham 2-4, .270 AVG
  • E. Salcedo 1-3, RBI, .143 AVG
  • J. Hanson 2-4, 2B, RBI, .252 AVG
  • C. Rasmus 5 IP, 4 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 7 K, 3.15 ERA
  • D. Hale 4 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 5 K, W (2), 5.98 ERA
  • Since rejoining Rome, Ramon Flores is 4-11 with 3 RBI. Todd Cunningham is on a tear of his own, with 4 hits in his last 7 at bats. Edward Salcedo collected his first hit and his first RBI in the US. Cory Rasmus got knocked around a little tonight, but fortunately David Hale was masterful in relief. There's realy no questioning the stats, as a starter Hale has been very bad, as a reliever he's been very good. Frankly, because at 22 he's old for the league, I think it's worth moving him up to Myrtle Beach and letting him work out of the bullpen there.

    Danville 5, Princeton 3

  • J. Leonard 1-3, 2B, RBI, .333 AVG
  • J. Terdoslavich 1-3, 3B, RBI, BB, .261 AVG
  • J. Whitmer 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, .281 AVG
  • E. Reyes 2-3, 2B, .167 AVG
  • C. Perez 7 IP, 2 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 8 K, W (1), 0.53 ERA
  • R. Pacheco 2 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 3 BB, 4 K, SV (1), 7.50 ERA
  • Joe Leonard made his professional debut toinght, rapping out an RBI double and striking out twice. Jace Whitmer is 5 for his last 8 with 4 RBI. Carlos Perez is a skinny lefty who's looking to join the slew of recent foreign signees who've made a huge splash at Danville, and so far he's forcing everyone to learn his name.

    GCL Braves 12, GCL Tigers 3, Game 1

  • M. Lipka 3-4, RBI, BB, .300 AVG
  • W. Beckwith 2-4, HR (1), 4 RBI, 2 E (1, 2), .276 AVG
  • E. Sanchez 3-5, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 E (2, 3), .333 AVG
  • F. de los Santos 3-4, 2B, .400 AVG
  • D. Jurik 3 IP, 2 R, 0 ER 0 H, 1 BB, 4 K, 2.25 ERA
  • D. Winnie 3 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 0 BB, 1 K, W (2), 4.50 ERA
  • This game's biggest hitting stars, first baseman William Beckwith and third baseman Edison Sanchez, who combined to go 5-9 with 2 doubles, a homer, and 6 RBI, also combined to make 4 errors, helping toward allowing 2 unearned runs. Matt Lipka extends his hitting streak to 5 games, going 9-20 with 2 doubles, 3 RBI, and 3 walks in that span. 20 year old second baseman Fernando de los Santos is on a tear as well, with a 4 game hitting streak of his own, going 8-14 with 4 doubles and 3 RBI in those games.

    GCL Braves 0, GCL Tigers 2, Game 2

  • D. Rohm 3-5, .310 AVG
  • E. Sanchez 1-4, .324 AVG
  • W. Perez 4 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 BB, 4 K, 6.08 ERA
  • Edison Sanchez slid across the diamond to play first base in the second game, finishing the double header going 4-9. He's started the season well, hitting .324 with a .851 OPS in 11 games. After a couple of poor showings to start the year, 19 year old Williams Perez pitched great in this one, shutting out the Lakeland Tigers over 4 innings.

    DSL Braves 7, DSL Blue Jays 1

  • A. Alcantra 3-4, 2 2B, RBI, .291 AVG
  • C. Franco 1-3, HR (2), 4 RBI, BB, .204 AVG
  • E. Maldonado 2-4, .222 AVG
  • L. Madrid 2-4, RBI, .222 AVG
  • J. Gil 6.2 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K, W (2), 1.99 ERA
  • 20 year old first baseman Aris Alcantra continues his solid season, collecting 3 hits, including 2 doubles. 18 year old third baseman Carlos Franco did most of the damage today though, driving in 4 on a grand slam. 19 year old righty Jean Carlos Gil continues his own good work, fanning 8 Jays de Azul.
