Jordan Schafer is still having trouble with AAA pitching and nearly a year's worth of rust. I still believe he is a great talent and I'm not too worried about him long term. Freddie Freeman has had excellent control of the strike zone but he just hasn't been taking tons of walks and has just a .313 OBP on the season. Gwinnett continues their slump, dropping to 6-13 since May 4

Lynchburg 1, Myrtle Beach 0
- R. Delgado 7IP 5H 1R 0BB 12K 2.43 ERA
Randall Delgado was fantastic yet again but his offense offered him no support and he takes the loss in what may have been his best all around game of the season. What I love about Delgado this season is how he has command and control of the strike zone. He hasn't walked more than 2 batters in game this year and he has just 12 in nearly 60 innings so far. There is a lot to like here.

Rome continues their offensive resurgence by pounding out 17 hits against the Greenjackets. I have procured my tickets for tomorrow nights game in Augusta and will be on hand if any other fans will be present let me know! I can honestly say I had never heard of this Chris Curley character until tonight. The Braves picked him up as a non drafted free agent last season after he was a 3B at Campbellsville University where he was the Mid-South Conference player of the year (NAIA). He played 2B tonight for Rome and is currently 22 years old so he needs to prove himself fast, but I'm not sure what to expect from him.
