Jair Jurrjens' first rehab start didn't go so well, as he allowed 8 baserunners in just 2.2 innings. Fortunately his bullpen backed him up with with 6.1 scoreless innings. Matt Young stays hot with 13 hits in his last 26 at bats.

    Mississippi 3, Chattanooga 11

  • Jacob Thompson had was has unfortunately become a typical start for him, adding in the odd stat of not recording a single strikeout in 5 innings. Over his last 7 starts he has a 7.30 ERA. Chris Anderson is one of the more likeable guys in the organization, though he rarely plays. Since signing in 2007, he's played in just 78 games and had just 197 at bats. He's played in just 6 games this year after spending the first half of the season inactive, serving as Mississippi's bullpen catcher.

    Myrtle Beach - Off

    Rome 4, Savannah 10

  • K. Rose 1-5, SB (16), .270 AVG
  • R. Hefflinger 0-3, 2 RBI, .266 AVG
  • J. Whitmer 2-4, 2B, 2 E (3, 4), .306 AVG
  • B. DeVall 4 IP, 6 ER, 10 H, 1 BB, 0 K, 4.50 ERA
  • Robby Hefflinger managed to plate 2 runs without a hit, one on a ground out and the second on a sacrifice fly. Jace Whitmer's transition from catcher to first base hasn't been without it's bumps, as he committed 2 errors tonight. Brett Devall is still recovering from offseason surgery and he was bound to have a start like this sooner or later.
