Durham Bulls 5, Gwinnett Braves 1

  • Jose Constanza LF: 3-5
  • Joe Leonard 1B: 2-4, R
  • Phil Gosselin 2B: 2-4
  • Matt Pagnozzi C: 2-4, 2B (9)

  • Yohan Flande 2IP, 3H, 0ER, BB, K
  • Joe Beimel: IP, 2H, 0ER, BB, K

Gwinnett couldn’t string together enough hits to get past Durham Wednesday night, losing 5-1. Jose Constanza provided a spark at the top of the lineup, singling three times. The bottom third of the lineup also provided some punch, going 6-for-12 with Joe Leonard scoring the only run of the night. David Hale got roughed up in 5.1 innings, giving up five earned. He walked four while only striking out two. However, look for Hale to be called up once rosters expand and get some work with the big club in September. Yohan Flande threw two scoreless innings in relief.

Lynchburg brought out the bats again in the first game of Wednesday’s double-header, scoring 11 runs for the second straight game. Unfortunately, they gave up 12 runs in this one instead of pitching another shutout. Matt Lipka reached on two singles and stole his 34st base of the season. Kyle Kubitza continued to stay hot, reaching in three of his five plate appearances including his 12th home run of the season, raising his OBP to .379. Carolina teed off on starter Ryan Weber, who game up nine runs on eight hits. His defense didn’t quite help him out, but it was far from his finest showing. Nate Hyatt actually took the loss in this one, surrendering a run in the 7th as the game was tied at 11.

Eric Pfisterer followed up in relief with 2.2 solid inning of work striking out five. He also made a fairly nifty between the legs grab, courtesy of Ben Poplin. Rome pitchers were able to induce four double plays, leaving 10 runners stranded. Kyle Wren, again, was a spark for Rome reaching four of his five time at the plate. He doubled for the 11th time and stole his 31st base in low-A. His partner in crime, Jose Peraza, recorded his 60th swipe of the season - impressive considering he’s doing it at an 81% rate! Joey Meneses also collected three hits on the day.
