6/4/10 - GBraves vs SWB Yankees (Schafer shows what he's capable of)

My wife and I attended the Gwinnett game on Friday night.  We had a 30 minute delay to the start as there was a T-Storm that rolled through at around 6:15 PM so they had to dry off the field.  Anyway, Jordan Schafer and Matt Young stole the show in this game.  Schafer batted leadoff and showed why he was a top prospect a few years ago as he truly set the table for the Braves.  Matt Young made a game saving diving catch at the fence in the top of the 8th to preserve the lead for the Braves (I was too busy watching and not photographing that play unfortunately, but it was on the other side of the field and it was DARK!) and he also contributed with a long 3B to left center field.  Tim Gustafson carried a no hitter into the 5th or 6th inning too, as there was an all around great performance by the team.  Mitch Jones also had a cameo at first base, so now onto the pictures (and eventually the videos).

Freddie Freeman (didn't play as he was still nursing his sore knee) talks to one of the GBraves staff (who consequently was the one who decided to not keep me on as the photography intern) before the game.

Wes Timmons is talented, he can catch a ball and blow a bubble at the same time

I'm just glad he didn't hurt himself on the slide after seeing him make this face.
