Gwinnett Braves

Day off. This is Gwinnett's first day off without a scheduled game in the past 28 days. There has been a multitude of postponed games coming last week due to rain. On the 27th and 28th of last week, the Braves played two games each day. Lets just say this is a well deserved day off.

(26-22) Mississippi Braves 2, (21-27) Jackson Generals 5

  • KD Kang, RF: 2-4, 2 1B, RBI, .257/.354/.354
  • Mallex Smith, CF: 2-5, 2 1B, R, .338/.395/.416
  • Emerson Landoni, 2B: 2-3, 2 1B, R, BB, .226/.268/.261
  • Rio Ruiz, 3B: 1-2, 1B, 2 BB, .179/.297/.216
  • Greg Ross, SP: 6 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 SO, 4.62 ERA
  • Jorge Reyes, RP: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO, 1.32 ERA
The 1-2-3 hitters were stroking tonight for Mississippi as Mallex Smith, Emerson Landoni, and KD Kang all tallied a pair of base hits. The team as a whole connected with nine singles so 66% of the total hits came from these three hitters. After ending his hitting streak the other night, Smith started a new streak with two singles and a run scored. KD Kang tied with Kevin Ahrens who each drove in one RBI for the Braves. Rio Ruiz has been on a small incline as he now rides a three game hitting streak. In those three games, Ruiz has gone 4-9 with a walk and three strikeouts.

Greg Smith limited the Generals damage by going 6 innings with two runs to score. Jorge Reyes came in for an inning of work and shut down the Jackson offense, but Francisco Rondon allowed the opposition to blow the game open by allowed two hits with two runs to score in the eighth inning. He walked Ian Miller and allowed back to back hits to get the two runs across. The Braves had a chance to regain the lead while having runners on 2nd and third with only one out, but Eric Garcia and Matt Lipka could not capitalize.

(23-25) Carolina Mudcats 1, (28-23) Wilmington Blue Rocks 4
  • Levi Hyams, 2B, 1-4, Solo HR, .221/.299/.337
  • Joey Terdoslavich, LF: 1-4, 2B, .231/.313/.385
  • Johan Camargo, SS: 1-2, 1B, BB, .293/.353/.391
  • Brandon Barker, (L, 0-1), SP: 5.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 3 SO, 4.50 ERA
  • Cole Brocker, RP: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 SO, 0.00 ERA
The Mudcats could only muster up a small amount of offense which came off Levi Hyams bat by means of a solo homer that came in the third inning. Joey Terdoslavich connected with a double to put a runner in scoring position, but the team went a sad 0-8 with RISP while leaving 7 on base. Terdo has been doing fantastic thus far in his rehab by picking up at least one hit in 6 of the 7 games with at least one at bat. Brandon Barker started his second game for Carolina after moving back and forth between Rome and Carolina. In his second start for Carolina, Barker was ruffled at first by giving up a two run homer to Cody Stubbs, but Barker settled down a little bit by allowing just one run in the next 4.2 innings. Cole Brocker went lights out in his relief. In his third game this season, Brocker allowed just a hit without a run or walk to happen while striking out three. While in Carolina, he has worked four innings so far with just two hits, no runs, one walk, and five strikeouts. Mauricio Cabrera faltered in the ninth by giving up a bunt base hit then throwing back to back wild pitches to move the runner to third. The runner later scored on a sac fly. The Mudcats also ended their short four game win streak, and in those four games before today, the team outscored opponents 19-1.

(25-26) Rome Braves 5, (21-30) Lexington Legends 2
  • Alec Grosser, (W, 4-2), SP: 7 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 3 SO, 4.18 ERA
  • Joseph Daris, LF: 2-4, Solo HR, 1B, 2 R, .299/.356/.453
  • Omar Obregon, 2B: 1-4, 2B, 2 RBI, R, .290/.367/.359
  • Braxton Davidson, RF: 1-4, 1B, RBI, .248/.383/.363
  • Ozhaino Albies, SS: 1-5, 1B, R, .296/.363/.379
The Rome offense shows off in two innings by scoring 2 and 3 runs in the 5th and 7th innings, respectively. Alec Grosser gave up an early run by giving up a leadoff triple and scored on the next batter on a sac fly. However, Grosser shut down the offense for the next 6 innings by allowing 5 hits. Grosser made players put the ball in play by getting 14 batters to flyout or groundout. Joseph Daris continues to be hot as he went 2-4 with a solo homer to lead off the seventh and getting on base with a bunt base hit in the fifth. Daris is riding a small four game hitting streak and has gone 7-13 with two RBIs in that span. Omar Obregon also had a strong night with a RBI double and tacking on another RBI off a groundout. The Braves offense corralled nine total hits with 8 of the 9 batters tallying at least one hit. Tanner Krietemeier is also on a long hitting streak as he currently is on a 10 game hitting streak with 17 hits in 42 (.405) at bats in that span. Krietemeier has 5 extra base hits with just seven strikeouts in that span. He has increased his slash from .118/.184/.132 to his current .227/.275/.300.
