Braves Winter League Recap: 10/15-10/16

Sorry last night's didn't get put up, I was out and about, but I'll play catch up tonight.

10/15

Peoria Javelins 17, Peoria Saguaros 9

  • J. Heyward 1-4 BB
  • B. Hicks 2-5

The Saguaros appear to be having a tough go of it so far in the AFL. Heyward has a hit in every game so far and Brandon Hicks hasn't been overmatched. Our pitchers pitched well in the game they all appeared in, but none of the other pitchers appear able to get guys out.

Culiacan 2, Navajoa 5 - Game 1 - 7 Innings

  • M. Young 2-3 2B, 3B, 2 RBI, K
  • C. Rodriguez 0-3 K
  • T. Gustafson 5IP 4H 1R 1BB 2K

Matt Young is just going to play his way into the Braves plans I do believe. He has enough skills to really be a help on the big club. He won't ever have much pop, but he has speed and on base ability and good defense in the OF. All of those things can help a team win. Concepcion Rodriguez has been solid so far in Mexico, just not tonight. Tim Gustafson was solid however. Tim put together a solid year between a couple of levels switching between starting and relieving and seems poised to continue that in Mexico.

Culiacan 4, Navojoa 3 - Game 2 - 7 Innings

  • M. Young 0-3 BB
  • C. Rodriguez 0-2 2BB, K

Nothing much going on here.

10/16

Peoria Saguaros 3, Peoria Javelins 13

  • F. Freeman 1-4 BB, 2K
  • B. Hicks 1-4 K

Really. this Saguaros team has yet to win a game I believe. Freddie Freeman did pick up his first hit of the fall and Brandon Hicks has hit in two straight and has 3K in 3 games.
