Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 4/16

Gwinnett 3, Durham 0

  • G. Blanco 0-3 BB, 3K, SB(3)
  • V. Pope 3-4 2B, RBI

Not a lot of offense as the AAA club beats uber-prospect David Price by allowing only three hits between Vladimir Nunez, Boone Logan, Francisley Bueno and Mariano Gomez. We also had a rare sighting of Van Pope in this game with three whole hits! Gwinnett moves to 4-4 on the season.

Mississippi 3, Huntsville 4

  • G. Hernandez 1-5 2B , 2RBI, K
  • K. Kaaihue 2-3 2B, BB, K
  • S. Diamond 5IP 2H 0R 4BB 5K

Gorkys Hernandez has a double in three straight games (which isn't close to matching Ernesto Mejia's 12 game XBH run last season) and seems to be fully healthy. Some people around here think he is trade bait. Those people are fools! He has 5:6 BB:K rate so far this season which is an improvement so far over years past. Scott Diamond was solid though his walks are up in his first two starts this year. I'll attribute it to knocking off some rust at this point. Mississippi is 2-6 thus far.

Frederick 7, Myrtle Beach 4

  • M. Fisher 2-5 2B, K
  • J. Heyward 3-3 HR(2), 3 RBI, 2BB
  • C. Kimbrel 1.2IP 2H 2R 2BB 1K

Heyward put together and excellent game in this one and four of his nine hits this season have gone for extra bases. Craig Kimbrel has been Boyer-esque so far this season giving up runs in every one of his appearances so far. He has allowed eight runs and walks in 4.2 innings pitched so far. Either he is hurt or last year was a fluke.

Charleston 7, Rome 2 Final 10 Inn.

  • S. Sime 2-4 2 2B
  • J. Thompson 6IP 6H 0R 0BB 4K
  • D. Francis 4IP 11H 7R 1BB 5K

Well Samuel Sime answered my my lone criticism by getting a couple doubles tonight and lowering his AVG to .571. Jake Thompson was lights out and I really don't think he'll be in Rome for real long having been a college pitcher. David Francis was very bad.
