Gwinnett Braves: 2 at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: 7

  • José Constanza, LF: 2-5, 2 R, 2B (8), SB (23), .297
  • Tyler Pastornicky, 2B: 1-5, .301
  • Todd Cunningham, CF: 1-5, 2B (22), RBI (45), 3 K, .279
  • Joey Terdoslavich, 1B: 1-4, RBI (42), BB, 2 K, .255
  • Christian Bethancourt, C: 2-5, 2 K, PB (10), .273
  • Elmer Reyes, SS: 2-3, BB, K, .290
  • Cody Martin (L): 3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 1:3 GO:FO, 3.73 ERA
  • Ryan Buchter: 1.2 IP, H, 2 K, 1:2 GO:FO, 3.66 ERA
  • Pedro Beato: IP, K, 1:1 GO:FO, 4.06 ERA
Gwinnett was defeated by Scranton (I refuse to type out that whole abomination) 7-2 last night. Cody Martin didn't give the Braves much of a chance to win, as he was shelled for five runs on seven hits and four walks in only three innings. Needless to say, it wasn't the best night for Martin. Zach Stewart wasn't much better in relief, getting seven outs and allowing a pair of runs. Ryan Buchter and Pedro Beato stopped the bleeding, however, with each pitcher contributing a scoreless relief appearance. Quite a few G-Braves had multi-hit games yesterday, with José Constanza, who also stole a base in the game, Christian Bethancourt, and Elmer Reyes, who also drew a walk, all getting in on the action. Todd Cunningham also doubled in the game, but it ultimately wasn't enough for the team. Aaron Northcraft will oppose Chien-Ming Wang (!) tonight as Gwinnett returns home to begin a series with the Charlotte Knights.

Mississippi Braves: 1 vs. Mobile BayBears: 3

  • José Peraza, 2B: 1-4, SB (22), .359
  • Kyle Wren, CF: 0-4, K, .263
  • Cedric Hunter, LF: 1-3, .294
  • Daniel Castro, SS: 1-4, R, E (4), .317
  • Mycal Jones, RF: 2-4, 2B (19), K, .265
  • Greg Ross (L): 4 IP, 5 H, 2 R (ER), 2 BB, 7 K, 5:1 GO:FO, 2.49 ERA
  • Brandon Cunniff: 3 IP, 3 H, 4 K, 2:2 GO:FO, 1.54 ERA
  • Ryne Harper: 2 IP, H, ER, BB, 3 K, 3:0 GO:FO, 3.02 ERA
The M-Braves' offense was stymied by Mobile in a 3-1 loss yesterday. Greg Ross made the start on the mound for Mississippi and threw 92 pitches in only four innings. He struck out seven, walked two, and gave up five hits. It was a bit of a strange outing, but despite the shortness of it, he did a decent job of throwing strikes (61/92 pitches). Brandon Cunniff made a strong three-inning relief appearance, allowing zero runs and striking out four. Ryne Harper allowed a run in two innings of work on a solo homer following Cunniff. The M-Braves' offense was mostly silent, but Myke Jones did chip in with a two-hit ballgame, including a double. José Peraza and Daniel Castro both notched a single in four tries at the plate. Peraza stole his 22nd base since being promoted. Notably, Kyle Kubitza had the night off for Mississippi. Williams Pérez will start tonight for the Braves against Mobile.

Lynchburg Hillcats: 2 at Winston-Salem Dash: 3

  • David Nick, 2B: 3-5, RBI (31), 2 K, SB (5), .296
  • Tyler Tewell, C: 1-4, R, K, .261
  • Emerson Landoni, 3B: 2-4, K, .308
  • Levi Hyams, 1B: 2-4, RBI (35), .237
  • Blake Brown, RF: 1-4, R, 2B (6), K, .270
  • Lucas Sims: 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R (1 ER), BB, 5 K, 7:6 GO:FO, 4.42 ERA
  • David Peterson (L): 2 IP, 2 H, ER, K, 4:1 GO:FO, 5.63 ERA
Despite twelve hits as a team, the Hillcats couldn't muster up enough run support to back a strong start by Lucas Sims yesterday night. Sims was effective last night, allowing five hits (all singles) and a walk in six innings of work, striking out five batters. Two runners crossed the plate against Sims, but only one of the runs allowed was earned. Sims has strung together five consecutive quality starts, posting a 2.14 ERA and a 30:7 K:BB ratio in 33.2 innings pitched in that span of games. It's certainly nice to see Sims starting to regain the form that made him a top 50 prospect in baseball last off-season. David Peterson followed Sims and allowed the game-deciding run in the bottom of the eighth. A bunch of Hillcats had multi-hit games, including David Nick, who singled three times. Emerson Landoni and Levi Hyams had two-hit ballgames, and Blake Brown doubled for the sixth time since his promotion to high-A ball. Cody Scarpetta will toe the rubber against the Dash tonight.

Rome Braves: 5 at Greenville Drive: 1

  • Johan Camargo, SS: 0-4, K, .269
  • Sean Godfrey, LF: 1-3, R, RBI (14), BB, .296
  • Ross Wilson, 2B: 1-4, R, HR (5), 3 RBI (33), .260
  • Carlos Franco, 3B: 1-4, R, 2B (16), K, .233
  • Connor Lien, RF: 1-4, K, .270
  • Tyler Brosius (W): 7 IP, 6 H, 4 BB, 2 K, 9:2 GO:FO, 4.50 ERA
  • Andy Otero: IP, 2 BB, 3 K, 4.22 ERA
Rome defeated the Drive by a 5-1 count yesterday evening in Upstate South Carolina. Tyler Brosius didn't allow a run in seven innings of work in his start on the mound, and it was a miracle considering that he allowed six hits and four walks and only struck out a pair of hitters. Andy Otero flirted with danger in the eighth, walking two hitters, but he struck out the side. Matt Kimbrel gave up a run in the ninth. The biggest hit for the night for Rome was a three-run Ross Wilson home run in the sixth, Wilson's lone hit on the night. Sean Godfrey reached twice in four tries, walking, singling, and scoring a run. Carlos Franco doubled in the game, and Connor Lien also produced one hit, a single. It'll be same time, same place for Rome today against the Drive at Fluor Field.

Danville Braves vs. Pulaski Mariners: Postponed, rain

The D-Braves' game last night was postponed until tomorrow due to rain. The two teams will play a doubleheader beginning at 5 p.m.


GCL Braves: 6 vs. GCL Yankees1: 5

  • Braxton Davidson, LF: 1-4, R, RBI (3), .259
  • Ray-Patrick Didder, PH-DH: 1-1, 3B (4), RBI (6), .256
  • Dylan Manwaring, 3B: 2-2, 2 R, 2B (4), 2 BB, .200
  • Kelvin Estevez, RF: 2-3, 2 2B (3), 3 RBI (13), .195
  • John Franco, 2B: 2-2, R, BB, CS (1), .279
  • Francisco González: 5 IP, 8 H, 4 R (3 ER), 2 BB, 4 K, 7:1 GO:FO, 5.05 ERA
  • Aldo Silva: IP, 0:2 GO:FO, 1.93 ERA
  • Jorge Zavala (SV): IP, H, 0:2 GO:FO, 0.51 ERA
The GCL squad eked a win out over the Yankees yesterday by a 6-5 final. Francisco González started the game for the Braves and was hit around, allowing eight hits and two walks in five innings, striking out four. Caleb Beech allowed a run in an inning of work following him, and then Luis Gamez, Aldo Silva, and Jorge Zavala each tossed a scoreless inning to end it. The Braves got big offensive days from Dylan Manwaring and Kelvin Estevez, who each collected a pair of hits. Estevez hit his second and third doubles of the season and drove in three runs, while Manwaring doubled, singled, and walked twice. Braxton Davidson reached once on a single in four tries at the plate, and Ray-Patrick Didder smacked a pinch-hit RBI triple. John Franco, who's the son of the former Mets pitcher of the same name, also had a good afternoon, walking and singling two times. The same two teams will play this morning at 10 am before taking their customary Sunday off.
