The Gwinnett offense appears to have righted the ship. Through April 17th they had scored more than 4 runs in just 2 games, in the 15 games since they have scored less than 4 runs just once and have gone 10-4 in that span. Mitch Jones has 10 XBH and 11 RBI in his last 10 games and has a 4 game XBH streak working right now. The team sits just 2 games behind the slumping Durham Bulls.
Mississippi 4, Jacksonville 10
- E. Duncan 2-4 2 2B, BB, K, .342
- M. Gomez 2-5 2B, RBI, .214
- C. Johnson 2-4 HR(6), 2 RBI, 2K, 2 SB(5), .253
Cody Johnson has found a groove of late with homers in 4 of his last 5 games. Yes he is still striking out a lot and he isn't walking much, but those bombs are nice to watch. Surprisingly he stole 2 bases today as well including 3rd. Cody isn't as slow as some make him out to be, but I think I'd be embarrassed if he ever took 3rd on me.
Frederick 8, Myrtle Beach 4
- C. Miles 2-4 K, .265

JJ Hoover was not sharp in this game giving up 3 runs (1 earned) in the 1st inning and then 5 more in the 3rd before being pulled in favor of Yeliar Castro who was pretty dominant for 5 innings. With the loss Myrtle Beach is now 7-16 on the season, last in their division and possessors of one of the 10 worst records in the minors. They lead the league in homers but have the 2nd worst SLG and the worst OBP all while their pitching staff has posted the worst ERA in the league by almost a full run. None of that adds up to a fun season.
