Gwinnett 4, Charlotte 1
- G. Blanco 1-4 3K, SB(9)
- B. Canizares 1-3 2B, 2 RBI, BB
- J. Venters 6IP 2H 1R 4BB 6K
Jonny Venters put together a nice start for Gwinnett when they really needed it. Durham and Gwinnett are tied atop the division and Durham looks like they are going to win tonight. Barbaro Canizares has fallen off a bit since the middle of the season, which is on par with what happened last year and his stats are pretty similar across the board to what he did last season.
West Tenn 4, Mississippi 5
- N. McLouth 0-2 BB, K
- M. Young 3-4 HR(4), 3 RBI, SB(38)
- C. Kimbrel 1IP 0H 0R 0BB 2K
Myrtle Beach 2, Frederick 7
- C. Johnson 1-4 2K
- G. Rodriguez 2-4 HR(10), K
- R. Gress 2-3 RBI, K
- E. Osuna 3IP 3H 1R 0BB 5K
Gerrardo Rodriguez has been a pretty solid hitter for the Pelicans since he came up, and was the heart of the R-Braves lineup when he was there as well. He doesn't walk much at all, and his strike outs are pretty attrocious, but he has managed to hit 21 homers this season between two levels.
Rome 5, Savannah 2
- S. Moody 1-4 2B
- M. Kennelly 1-3 2B, 3 RBI, K
- J. Teheran 5IP 7H 2R 4BB 4K
Julio Teheran appeared to struggle a bit with his comman on this night as added a wild pitch and a hit batter to go along with those 4 walks. I am pretty impressed that he only gave up 2 runs. The nice thing is that he was starting to settle down in his last inning, which was the only 1-2-3 inning he had.
Bluefield 1, Danville 5
- C. Harrilchak 1-3 2B, 2 RBI, BB, K
- O. Marval 3-3 2B, RBI
- B. Oberholtzer 5IP 1H 0R 0BB 6K
Another excellent start from Brett Oberholtzer. He has a 2.01 ERA on the season and only 6 walks allowed in 67IP. Osman Marval is another guy that been killing the ball in August, posting an .834 OPS for the month. He has played catcher for the most part but he is actually listed as a DH on MILB.com. I don't know what that says for his abilities.David Hale was also excellent in 3 innings of work.
GCL Phillies 1, GCL Braves 3
- J. Linger 2-4 2B
- L. Hiller 1-4 2 RBI
- A. Northcraft 4IP 1H 0R 1BB 3K
The GCL team is only 25-33 on the season so far and were in the midst of a 1-7 run. I reall wish I had more to say about these guys.
