  • Todd Redmond had a great start, but the bullpen blew the win for him, with Scott Proctor and Craig Kimbrel, who walked 4 in 0.2 innings, allowing 5 runs in the 9th. But Jordan Schafer sealed the victory for the G-Braves, driving in Joe Thurston on a double in the top of the 10th. Nate McLouth made his 4th rehab appearance and he's gone 5-17 with a homer and 2 steals in those games.

  • In his last start, Brandon Beachy struck out a career high 11, but he topped that tonight, fanning 13 Huntsville batters. His numbers for the year are fantastic, with a 1.18 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP, 12.2 K/9, and 4.6 K/BB in 68.2 innings, and he's been even better as a starter, with a 0.90 ERA, a 0.73 WHIP, 13.2 K/9 and 7.3 K/BB in 30 innings. And he even added an RBI double tonight. Jesus Sucre made 2 errors tonight, but he did continue his hotting hitting, extending his hitting streak to 7 games, going 12-37 in that span.

    Myrtle Beach 6, Lynchburg 0

  • My. Jones 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, .295 AVG
  • Mi. Jones 2-4, .246 AVG
  • B. Schlehuber 1-3, .333 AVG
  • LV Ware 2-4, 3B, RBI, .244 AVG
  • M. Crim 7 IP, 0 R, 5 H, 3 BB, 6 K, W (5), 4.70 ERA
  • Matt Crim had given up 14 earned runs in his last 2 starts, but tonight he shutout the Hillcats over seven frames. He's been inconsistent this year but when he's on he's as talented as any pitcher in they organization. Braeden Schlehuber made his debut with the Pelicans tonight, collecting a single in 3 at bats. He was the Braves' 4th round selection in 08 and was said to be an offense first catcher, but in 703 Minor League plate appearances prior to tonight he's hit just .218 with a woeful .588 OPS. After his hot stretch to start his Myrtle Beach career, Myke Jones hit a roadbump, going hitless in 6 straight games, but in his last 2 he's gonge 4-8 with a double and a homer.

    Rome 9, Hagerstown 6

  • P. Gosselin 3-5, 2 3B, RBI, .324 AVG
  • T. Cunningham 3-5, SB (2), .293 AVG
  • J. Leonard 3-5, 2B, 3B, HR (1), 5 RBI, .600 AVG
  • B. DeVall 5 IP, 5 R, 4 ER, 11 H, 0 BB, 6 K, W (5), 4.23 ERA
  • J. Lorick 2.2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 BB, 3 K, SV (3), 1.30 ERA
  • The 3 2010 draftees on the team, Phil Gosselin, Todd Cunningham, and Joe Leonard, combined to go 9-15 with a double, 3 triples, a home run, 6 RBI, and a stolen base. Leonard had an amazing debut for the team, missing the cycle by a single while driving in 5. Brett DeVall has been doing magic all year, because he's been gving up a ton of hits without ever really giving up a ton of runs. For the year his WHIP is 1.54 and he's giving up 11.6 hits per 9. Those numbers are way too high, but you have to keep in mind that he's just 20 years old and still recovering from off season surgery. Next year should be a much better indication of what he's capable of.

    Danville 4, Elizabethton 0

  • A. Simmons 1-3, BB, SB (6), .240 AVG
  • R. Delgado 2-4, HR (3), 2 RBI, .366 AVG
  • W. Kempf 7 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 0 BB, 7 K, W (1), 1.38 ERA
  • T. Stovall 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 BB, 1 K, 1.74 ERA
  • Willie Kempf picks up his first win for Danville, dominating the E-Twins for 7 innings. In 24 innings this year for the GCL Braves and D-Braves the 21 year old, who was Atlanta's 27th round pick this year, has a 0.75 ERA and a 0.63 WHIP. Ryan Delgado was selected in the 32nd round this year and the 22 year old has settled in at the Danville DH, hitting .366 with a 1.107 OPS, 3 homers and 10 RBI in 41 at bats.

    GCL Braves 2, GCL Tigers 1

  • D. Rohm 2-4, 2B, .320 AVg
  • F. de los Santos 2-4, RBI, .340 AVG
  • W. Perez 5 IP, 1 ER, 5 H, 0 BB, 3 K, 4.50 ERA
  • A. Gaxiola 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 5 K, 3.21 ERA
  • David Rohm is trying to hit his way out of Florida. During his current 5 game hitting streak the 20 year old, who was Atlanta's 9th round pick this year, has gone 9-20 with 2 doubles, a triple, a homer, and 10 RBI. Fernando de los Santos is having a great year as the team's second baseman, hitting .340 with a .851 OPS in 50 at bats. It's a major improvement for the 20 year old, who hit .229 with a .612 OPS in 105 at bats with the team last season.

    DSL Braves 7, DSL Dodgers 2

  • G. Reyes 1-4, RBI, .294 AVG
  • A. Alcantra 1-5, 2B, 2 BI, .313 AVG
  • F. Marte 1-6, 2B, 3 RBI, .252 AVG
  • H. Garcia 2-5, .283 AVG
  • J. Gil 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 H, 0 BB, 6 K, 1.96 ERA
  • First baseman Aris Alcantra is a masher. In his last 10 the 20 year old is hitting .357 with a 1.066 OPS, 4 doubles, 3 triples, and 12 RBI. Rightfielder Felix Marte added a double and 3 RBI today, and the 19 year old has gone 6 for his last 14 with 2 doubles and a homer. Hector Garcia was one of the Braves' big international signings in the summer of 08, but the 6'2", 170 pound 18 year old switch hitter played poorly in the DSL last season, managing just a .165 average and a .446 OPS. He hasn't exactly wowed this year, but he's been much more consistent, with a .283 average and a .707 OPS.
