Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 7/6

Norfolk 5, Gwinnett 6

  • R. Gorecki 2-4 2B, RBI, BB, K, SB(11)
  • B. Canizares 2-5 2B

Reid Gorecki hit great  in June but has started off pretty slow this month batting only .133 through 4 games. That isn't much really so I can't make anything of it, and tonight he had an excellent all around game. Barbaro Canizares continues to hit well, even if his power has slipped a little. He hit 4 homers in April and May each, and then only 1 in June. I have expected him to fall off all season, but he keeps hanging in there.

Jacksonville 9, Mississippi 4

  • J. Heyward 2-5 3B, 3 RBI
  • F. Freeman 1-5 K
  • C. Rodriguez 3-4 RBI
  • J. Lyman 5IP 2H 2R 2BB 5K

Jason Heyward hasn't hit any homers yet, but he does have 3 XBH in 3 games with Mississippi and hasn't struck out yet. Frederick Freeman hasn't been as good yet, but he hasn't been overmatched either. Their performace so far is a testament to their maturity as hitters. I am just glad to see that they aren't getting beat around like Mike Stanton is. You know I didn't realize that Jeff Lyman is only 22 years old. And he has actually been pretty solid this year for Mississippi, especially as a reliever.

Myrtle Beach - Off


Rome 1, Lexington 2

  • B. Schlehuber 1-4 HR(4), 2K
  • D. Delgado 6IP 4H 2R 0BB 8K

A nice bounce back game here for Dimaster Delgado who had struggled in his last couple of starts. All of his components look good and he actually retired 14 straight at one point in the game but he just bunched his hits together in the 6th and allowed the two runs.

Danville 4, Pulaski 3

  • LV Ware 3-5 2 2B, RBI, K, SB(7), PO(1)
  • RSF 1-5 2B, 3K
  • R. Hefflinger 2-4 HR(5), BB, K
  • M. Jones 3-4 2B, 2 RBI, SB(3)

A nice come from behind win for the Danville team with Hefflinger hitting what would be the game winning homer in the top of the 9th inning. Hefflinger has been solid so far but he has struck out 18 times in 59 AB. Very Cody Johson of him. Also Tyler Stovall started this game and was just OK. He did K 6 in 4IP, but walked 5 and threw two wild pitches. That is a 17/14 K/BB in 11.2 IP. He needs to get those walks down and keep the Ks where they are.

GCL Tigers 4, GCL Braves 5

  • C. Bethancourt 2-5 2K
  • A. Feliz 4-4 2 2B, 3B

Yay! A bunch of guys I don't know anything about!
