Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 7/17

LV Ware had a perfect night at the plate, reaching base all 4 times up and he even added 2 steals.

Gwinnett 3, Buffalo 4

  • N. McLouth 1-4, BB, .296 AVG
  • F. Freeman 2-4, HR (11), RBI, .292 AVG
  • M. Jones 2-4, HR (19), 2 RBI, .261 AVG
  • M. Young 1-1, BB, SB (22), .304 AVG
  • C. Martinez 5 IP, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 3 K, 4.19 ERA
  • C. Gearrin 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 2 K, 4.08 ERA
  • Freddie Freeman collected 2 hits, including his 11th homer of the year, extending his hitting streak to 7 games. In Mitch Jones' last 2 games he's gone 5-8 with 2 homers, 6 RBI, and 2 walks. Cristian Martinez made his first start of the year and pitched well, though he was victimized by errors by Joe Thurston and Brandon Hicks. After allowing 6 earned runs in 0.2 innings on July 7th (which was a nationaly televised game), Cory Gearrin has had 4 straight scoreless appearances, covering 8 innings.

    Mississippi 0, Mobile 1

  • T. Patornicky, 1-4, E (1), .333 AVG
  • W. Cabrera 1-4, SB (13), .329 AVG
  • D. Linares 2-4, .248 AVG
  • C. Resop 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 1 K, 0.00 ERA
  • E. Cordier 7 IP, 0 R, 5 H, 1 BB, 8 K, 3.93 ERA
  • I commented earlier in the week that if the Braves didn't promote Willie Cabrera after the All-Star break it would say a lot about how they viewed him internally. He has nothing left to prove at AA and the fact that he wasn't promoted may be a strong indication that the Braves don't think he can contribute at the highest level. Or, they could be waiting until Nate McLouth's rehab is over to promote him. Or, it could mean nothing. Chris Resop had a solid rehab appearance for the M-Braves, throwing 2 scoreless, and was followed by Erik Cordier who had his best appearance of the season, striking out 8 Bay Bears over 7 scoreless frames.

    Myrtle Beach 5, Lynchburg 2

  • My. Jones 2-4, RBI, 3 SB (8, 9, 10), .300 AVG
  • C. Harrilchak 2-4, 2 2B, RBI, BB, .267 AVG
  • J. Kreke 1-2, 3B, RBI, 2 BB, .308 AVG
  • LV Ware 2-2, 2B, 2 BB, 2 SB (7, 8), .250 AVG
  • B. Oberholtzer 5 IP, 2 ER, 7 H, 0 BB, 5 K, W (3), 4.11 ERA
  • The Pelicans had absolutely no respect for Lynchburg catcher Chris McMurray, as Myke Jones, LV Ware, and Luis Sumoza combined to steal 7 bases against him. Ware had a perfect night, collecting a single, a double, and 2 walks in 4 plate appearances. Jones is now 7 for his last 12 and Cory Harrilchak is 8 for his last 20. Brett Oberholtzer had a solid start, picking up his 3rd win.

    Rome 3, Hagerstown 10

  • C. Bethancourt 3-4, 3B, E (7), .259 AVG
  • E. Salcedo 1-4, 2B, SB (3), E (6), .229 AVG
  • C. Curley 2-3, 2B, RBI, .220 AVG
  • M. Weaver 2-2, RBI, .240 AVG
  • C. Masters 5 IP, 5 ER, 7 H, 5 BB, 3 K, 3.27 ERA
  • Christian Bethancourt rapped out 3 hits tonight, including a triple, and he's gone 6-13 in his last 3 games. After putting up a 2.84 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP in 57 innings in April and May, Chris Masters has put up a 6.23 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP in 26 innings in June and July.

    Danville 6, Pulaski 7

  • D. Rohm 1-3, 2B, RBI, .429 AVG
  • B. Gattis 2-4, RBI, .328 AVG
  • R. Weber 6 IP, 7 ER, 9 H, 1 BB, 6 K, 3.25 ERA
  • In 21.2 innings for Danville before tonight, Ryan Weber had only allowed 3 earned runs and 14 hits, but he gave up 7 earned and 9 hits in just 6 innings against Pulaski. David Rohm stays hot, driving in a run on a double.

    GCL Braves 6, GCL Blue Jays 0

  • M. Lipka 2-4, BB, .346 AVG
  • C. Drury 1-4, 2 RBI, SB (2), .217 AVG
  • D. Falcon 3-4, 2B, SB (1), .750 AVG
  • R. de los Santos 2-5, 2B, RBI, SB (1), .290 AVG
  • V. Cadette 2-4, 2B, .192 AVG
  • I. Marshall 6 IP, 0 R, 5 H, 1 BB, 2 K, W (3), 4.79 ERA
  • After hitting just .206 with a .651 OPS in 68 at bats for Danville, Daniel Falcon was demoted to the GCL, but he had a great first game for the team, rapping out 3 hits, including a double, and stealing a base. Matt Lipka is trying to do the opposite and get himself promoted to Danville, he extended his hitting streak to 9 games and during that stretch he's hitting .432 with a 1.070 OPS. 23 year old Ian Marshall, this year's 40th round selection of out the University of Richmond, picked up his 3rd win, shutting out the GCL Jays over 6 frames.
