Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 7/28

Rochester 7, Gwinnett 1

  • V. Pope 2-4 2B, K

Man, call this the rehab game. Jeff Bennett, Buddy Carlyle and James Parr all made appearances and only Carlyle pitched well tossing a scoreless inning. Alvin Colina was the only other Brave to collect more than 1 hit. We were up against Philip Humber for crying out loud.

West Tenn 1, Mississippi 4 - Game 1 7 Innings

  • J. Heyward 1-3 HR(3), 2 RBI
  • W. Cabrera 1-3 RBI
  • J. Ortegano 7IP 5H 1R 1BB 6K

Jose Ortegano comes out DEALING in his first AA start. You know, for a guy that probably never touches 90 on a radar gun the guy actually strikes out a decent amount of batters. Another thing to remember about him is that he doesn't turn 22 for another week. Not bad at all. Also Jason Heyward is good.

West Tenn 0, Mississippi 1 - Game 2 7 Innings

  • J. Heyward 3-3 RBI, BB
  • T. Gustafson 4IP 0H 0R 1BB 4K

Jason Heyward is now hitting .443 in AA.


Myrtle Beach 7, Potomac 6
  • D. Linares 2-5 2 RBI, K
  • C. Johnson 1-3 2 BB, 2K
  • CJ Lee 2-4 2 2B, 2 RBI, K
  • C. Kimbrel 2IP 1H 0R 0BB 5K

I didn't put it up there, but Cole Rohrbough had another bad outing in this game giving up 5 runs in 4 innings. He was doing fine until the 5th inning and then walked a guy, surrendered a double, a single and then a homer and then was pulled from the game. He just seems to lose confidence or fall apart when one thing doesn't go his way. I really don't know what to make of his season so far.

Rome 4, Kannapolis 1

  • A. Milligan 3-4 HR(6), 4 RBI, K, CS(3)
  • M. Kennelly 2-4
  • C. Culver 3-4 2 2B, K
  • D. Delgado 7IP 3H 1R 3BB 9K

I really wonder if the Delgado guys try to match each other every time out? Whatever it is they posted consecutive excellent starts. Adam Milligan is going to make me keep writing about him as he has now homered in 4 straight games and is batting a Heyward-like .500 in his last 10 games. I f he keeps this up he is probably going to catapult himself into our post season top 10 lists.

Danville 6, Burlington 4

  • M. Jones 2-5 HR(4), 2 K
  • C. Harrilchak 3-5 HR(1), 2 RBI, SB(10)
  • RSF 2-4 RBI, BB, K, CS(2)
  • T. Stovall 5.1IP 5H 3R 4BB 6K

Mycal Jones is keeping up his impressive run with a 9 games hitting streak that has seen him knock 11 XBH in that time. In 100 ABs in July he has a .942 OPS and is looking like a good pick up in the 4th round. The only issue I have with him is that he is already 22 years old and I think he needs to be pushed up to Rome, but I don't think there is room for him right now. Tyler Stovall kept up his erratc behavior in this one with lots of Ks and walks. On the season his line is 26.2IP/33BB/35K.

GCL Braves 3, GCL Tigers 7

  • J. Dalfonso 2-2 RBI
  • L. Hiller 1-4 HR(5), 2 RBI

Hooray Baseball!
