Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 5/27

Indianapolis 4, Gwinnett 9

  • B. Canizares 2-4 2B, 3RBI
  • B. Conrad 1-3 HR(7), BB, 2K

James Parr gave up 3 runs  un 4 innings in his first game back in Gwinnett. Lucky for him the offense was on its game with every start except for Brian Barton collecting at least one hit (a PH for the pitcher collected one as well, I will count it).

Mississippi 3, Birmingham 2

  • T. Jones 1-4 HR(2), K
  • B. Hicks 2-4 K
  • E. Campbell 1-4 HR(1), 2RBI, K

If Travis Jones can keep the power he showed in the Carolina League last year he could be something useful in the next couple of seasons. Brandon Hicks continues his slow turnaround. He is up to .274 for the month with a .727 OPS. And I really can't believe it took Eric Campbell this long to hit a homer, but he is on a 10 game hitting streak right now, the problem so far is he just isn't hitting for any power on the season which is the opposite of what he has always done. Maybe he was juicing.

Winston-Salem 0, Myrtle Beach 6

  • F. Freeman 2-4 2B
  • D. Linares 2-4 2B, RBI
  • CJ Lee 2-4 3B, 2RBI
  • R. Sullivan 9IP 3H 0R 2BB 9K

This might be the best pitching line any Braves farmhand has put up this year. It certainly rivals any of the ones Medlen and Hanson have put up. This is a little surprising considering Sullivan has given up 4 runs in all but one of his starts in Myrtle Beach. I guess something clicked today or he was facing a puny offense. Jason Heyward was off for the day and Cody Johnson went 0-4.

Greenville 5, Rome 3 - Game 1, 7 Innings

  • J. Sucre 2-3
  • S. Shults 1-2 HR(3), 2RBI, K
  • R. Delgado 5.1IP 8H 5R 3BB 6K

It looks like Delgado may not be quite ready to to assume the mantle of teen pitching sensation I was so ready to crown him with. I'll put it back on the mantle until Teheran is ready. Jesus Sucre keeps on hitting singles putting his AVG at .337 on the season.

Greenville 3, Rome 4 - Game 2, 10 Innings

  • G. Rodriguez 4-5 2B, 3B, HR(9), 3 RBI
  • C. Kimbrel 3IP 1H 0R 0BB 5K

Yes that is right, Gerrardo Rodriguez hit for the cycle today. To cap it off his homer came in the bottom of the 10th in walk off fashion. That is one hell of a day. Also it is nice to see Craig Kimbrel to come out of the pen for more than an inning and get it done. Nice work. You have to wonder when he will be shuffled back to Myrtle Beach.
