  • C. Kimbrel 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 1 K, SV (19), 1.53 ERA
  • Since the start of July, Jose Ortegano had a in 8.21 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP in 30.2 innings, but he allowed just 1 over 5 innings tonight. The bullpen was great, with Cory Gearrin picking up the win with 2 scoreless and Eric O'Flaherty and Craig Kimbrel each throwing perfect innings. Gearrin has been on a roll since the All-Star break, with a 1.80 ERA and a 1.05 ERA in 20 innings over 11 appearances. Barbaro Canizares extended his hitting streak to 7 games, while Freddie Freeman extended his to 4. He had 2 hits tonight, but since joining Gwinnett Wilkin Ramirez has hit just .179 with a .615 OPS in 39 at bats.

    Mississippi 1, Montgomery 7

  • M. Daniel 2-4, .271 AVG
  • J. Sucre 2-4, .303 AVG
  • Y. Gomez 2-4, .339 AVG
  • R. Delgado 7 IP, 5 ER, 5 H, 4 BB, 5 K, 6.48 ERA
  • Randall Delgado continues to struggle at AA, giving up 5 earned over 7 innings. The walks have been killing him, as he's averaging 5.8 every 9 innings, more than double the 2.4 he was averaging for Myrtle Beach. Mike Daniel has been on a roll since the All-Star break, with a .318 average and a .802 OPS and 5 steals in 66 at bats. Yasser Gomez collects a pair of hits, extending his hitting streak to 6 games. In 41 August at bats he's hit .366 with a .849 OPS. He's excelled with runners on, hitting .462 with a 1.024 OPS in those situations. After missing 6 days with the complications stemming from his wrist injury, Jordan Schafer has been back in centerfield every day, but he's continued to struggle, going 3-25 in his last 7 games.

    Myrtle Beach 5, Potomac 7, 10 innings

  • C. Miles 2-4, 2B, .249 AVG
  • G. Rodriguez 2-5, 2B, HR (10), 3 RBI, .251 AVG
  • C. Johnson 1-4, RBI, 0 K, .294 AVG
  • L. Sumoza 3-5, 2B, 3B, .232 AVG
  • M. Crim 5.1 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 4 H, 1 BB, 2 K, 4.87 ERA
  • Matt Crim had what's become a typical start for him, average, not bad, not great, just average. The Pelicans lost on a 2 run homer in the bottom of the tenth to P-Nats shortstop Jose Lozado, but they did manage to keep rehabbing National Nyjer Morgan hitless in 3 at bats. Of course, he's not very good, so maybe that's not a huge accomplishment. Gerry Rodriguez homered, extending his hitting streak to 6 games, going 10-25 in that span. Luis Sumoza has been hot, with a .321 average and 1.044 OPS in his last 10 games. 2008 fourth round pick Braeden Schlehuber has just been bad for the pelicans, with a 1.50 average and .465 OPS in 60 at bats.

    Rome 2, Augusta 4

  • M. Weaver 3-4, .258 AVG
  • J. Leonard 2-4, RBI, .262 AVG
  • R. Hefflinger 1-2 HR (5), RBI, .252 AVG
  • C. Masters 6 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 3.57 ERA
  • I'd love to know what adjustments Matt Weaver has made, because he's not only turning his season around, but also his career. He extended his hitting streak to 7 games, going 14-27 with 4 doubles and 4 RBI in that span. Robby Hefflinger played for the first time since July 4th, hitting his 5th homer of the season. Chris Masters had his best start in a month, fanning 6 over 6 innings. He's struck out 15 in 11 innings in his last 2 starts.

    Danville 4, Burlington 5

  • E. Reyes 2-3, 2B, HR (5), 2 RBI, .293 AVG
  • J. Frierson 2-4, SB (2), CS (2), .286 AVG
  • Ke. Fleming 2-3, 2B, RBI, .211 AVG
  • K. Farrell 5.1 IP, 4 R, 2 ER, 7 H, 0 BB, 4 K, 4.82 ERA
  • B. Sims 4.2 IP, 1 ER, 8 H, 0 BB, 3 K, 1.74 ERA
  • Kenny Fleming hasn't done much this year, with a .211 average and a .540 OPS in 128 at bats, but he's working on a 4 game hitting streak where he's gone 7-16 with a double and 2 RBI. Elmer Reys has been great all year, but in his last 10 he's been on fire, with a .378 average, a 1.196 OPS, 3 home runs, and 7 RBI in 37 at bats.
