After being discounted by most, Steve Marek has done nothing but dominate this season.
Gwinnett 3, Rochester 1
Barbaro Canizares may never make an impact in the Major Leagues, but he's been a great AAA player, hitting .305 with a .809 OPS in 1625 at bats over 4 seasons. Scott Diamond allowed 6 earned run in his first AAA start, but since then he's only allowed 1 earned run in 13 innings. Steve Marek hasn't allowed a run in July, tossing 12 scoreless innings over 11 appearances.
Mississippi 0, Huntsville 6
Julio Teheran didn't have much success in his AA debut, as he allowed 12 baserunners in just 4.2 innings. He came back strong with Myrtle Beach after a game where he allowed 8 earned, so hopefully he can do the same for Mississippi.
Myrtle Beach 2, Salem 4
Jordan Kreke continues his hot hitting for the Pelicans, and he's done almost all of it playing at second base for the first stretch in his pro career. He was a solid defender at third, so he has a chance to be a good one at second, and his bat would play much better there. LV Ware is on a hot streak as well, hitting .385 with a 1.102 OPS in his last 10 games. Brett Oberholtzer gave up 8 earned runs in just 4 innings his last time out, but held the Red Sox to just 1 earned in 5 innings tonight.
Rome - Off
Danville 0, Britol 4, Game 1
The D-Braves only got 3 hits in the one, one of them a double by Barrett Kleinknect, who played second base in this game. Tyler Stovall had a 1:1 strikeout to walk ratio last season, and he's been close to that this year with 18 strikeouts and 16 walks in 16.2 innings.
Danville 2, Bristol 1, Game 2
The D-Braves only picked up 4 hits in the second game and 3 of those were by Joey Terdoslavich. Over his last 3 starts, Ronan Pacheco had allowed 13 earned runs in 9.1 innings, but he only allowed 1 earned tonight over 5 frames. He nearly doubled his season strikeout total, fanning 13 White Sox hitters.
GCL Braves 0, GCL Blue Jays 4
The Braves only picked up 2 hits in this game and starting pitcher Eduardo Castillo allowed too many baserunners.
DSL Braves - Off
