Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 4/27

Gwinnett - Off Day

 

Mississippi 5, West Tenn 6

  • G. Creek 4-4 2 RBI
  • T. Jones 2-3 BB, SB(3)
  • P. Britton 2-3 2 PB, 1 RCS

Scott Diamond's run at AA hasn't been going well the past couple of starts as in this one he gave up 4 runs in 5IP. Granted all 4 runs came in one innings and 3 of them off of one homer. but still. Get it in gear kid. Phil Britton is surpring me a little. I wonder when he will come back down to earth. He needs to get some power in that bat though.

Lynchburg 5, Myrtle Beach 4

  • F. Freeman 1-5 HR(4), 2 RBI, 2K
  • C. Johnson 2-3 BB, K
  • E. Cordier 2IP 1H 0R 2BB 3K

Freeman flashes a little power in this game, though not much else. It is good to see him carry his power over from last season though. Cody Johnson doubled his number of singles for the year in just one night but the team as a whole went 0-7 with RISP. Can't win games if you don't take advantage of the opportunities. And as you can see Eric Cordier takes another step back from his injuries. He could be valuable if he ever get healed. Heyward sat out his third game in the last week. I don't know what the deal is but he had a tendency to do this last year too. Anyone know what is up?

Augusta 9, Rome 5

  • L. Sumoza 2-3 BB, K
  • G. Rodriguez 2-5 HR(5), 3 RBI, K
  • S. Shults 1-3 HR(1)

Rodriguez continues to make this league his bitch. Pardon the French. He is slugging to the tune of .652 right now. Problem is he only has 4 BB against 69 AB. Also 17K which I could forgive if he walked more. He looks like he might put together some kind of season like Ernesto Mejia did last year (for those that don't know Mejia was the 1B for Myrtle Beach last year who had 74 XBH on the season and 12 straight games at one point with an XBH but he posted a 28:139 BB:K rate). I hope he can keep it up all year just because it will be fun to watch.
