Gwinnett - Postponed, Rain
Mississippi 2, Brimingham 6
In his 5 starts since returning to the rotation, Kyle Cofield has a 6.75 ERA and a 2.02 WHIP in 17.1 innings. Yeliar Castro was very solid for Myrtle Beach, with a 3.49 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP in 59.1 innings, but he's gotten lit up in 3.2 innings with Mississippi, with a 17.18 ERA and a 2.72 WHIP.
Myrtle Beach 3, Frederick 6
Paul Clemens pitched well in his second straight starting assignment; he's allowed just 1 earned run in 10 innings over those 2 starts with 11 strikeouts and just 1 walk. Big Mike Jones has been tearing it up in August, with a .448 average and .948 OPS in 29 at bats.
Rome 2, Greenville 4
Phil Gosselin has also enjoyed August, with a .364 average and a .886 OPS in 33 at bats. Chris Masters struck out 9, but he also allowed 3 earned runs in 5 innings, continuing a bad trend that has seen his ERA rise dramatically since the start of June. Since the start of July, David Hale has a 0.61 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP in 29.1 relief innings. His future definitely lies in the pen.
Danville 2, Bristol 8
Elmer Reyes has a 4 game hitting streak and has gotten a hit in 6 of his last 7 games, going 11-27 in that span. With a 6.62 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP in 35.1 innings, Ronan Pacheco hasn't had much success this year, and tonight was one of his worst outings of the season. The 22 year old is averaging 10.4 K/9, but his numbers overall just aren't good.
GCL Braves 2, GCL Blue Jays 10
Matt Lipka has cooled off a lot, with a .176 average in his last 9 games, but still, the Braves have to be pleased with how this year's first selection has played. With a .342 average and .833 OPS in 76 at bats in the GCL, Daniel Falcon has done well enough he deserves another crack at Danville.
DSL Braves 7, DSL Blue Jays 4
19 year old second baseman Gerardo Reyes cause havoc today, with 5 hits and 3 steals. In his last 4 games he's gone 9-16. 20 year old first baseman Aris Alcantra continues his fine season with a 3 hit game. 18 year old centerfielder Hector Garcia, a childhood friend of Julio Teheran, has heated up with the summer, with a .316 average and .954 OPS in 19 August at bats.
