Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 8/18

A crazy day here at Talking Chop! In light of all the craziness we have had what may be the busiest day in the history of our wonderful little (BIG?) site. As I start writing this post we are about 150 visits from hitting 30,000 in one day which is about 10,000 more than any day in the past month (including the trade deadline). So I just wanted to thank everyone who visits Talking Chop for helping us grow and show support to the Braves!

Gwinnett - Off

Mississippi 7, Tennessee 6 - 10 Innings

  • T. Pastornicky 2-4 .235 Avg
  • E. Duncan 2-5 2B, 3 RBI, .276 Avg
  • M. Gomez 3-5 HR(14), 2 RBI, K, .279 Avg
  • J. Teheran 5.2IP 3H 4R 5BB 4K 3.41 ERA

The AA squad did their best road imitation of the big club tonight knocking in the winning run in extras. Julio Teheran fell off the wagon in this one by surrendering 5 walks for the second time in his stint with Mississippi. He had a few good games in a row but don't be surprised when he has some more growing pains. Jordan Schafer was 0-3 with a K in this one.

Myrtle Beach 4, Lynchburg 2

  • C. Harrilchak 1-4 2K, SB(4), .274 Avg
  • C. Johnson 1-4 2B, 2 RBI, 3K, .310 Avg
  • P. Clemens 5IP 4H 2R 2BB 4K 3.34 ERA

Paul Clemens continued his rise to respectable prospect with yet another solid outing for the Pelicans. He gave up 6 runs in his last outing but other than that he has allowed 2 runs or less in his last 10 appearances. One interesting development is he has been better as a starter this season. In 23 innings starting he has posted a 1.52 ERA vs 4.64 as a reliever. Scouts have said Clemens has one of the best arms in the organization and if he is truly harnessing that arm he could be another the long line of pitching for the Braves. Also, isn't that just a stereotypical line from Cody Johnson up there?

Rome 2, Charleston 0

  • J. Terdoslavich 1-4 2B, .455 Avg
  • C. Bethancourt 1-4 2B, .250 Avg
  • W. Kempf 5IP 2H 0R 0BB 8K 3.00 ERA
  • S. Kent 3IP 0H 0R 0BB 6K 0.99 ERA

At one point in this game the Braves pitchers set down 17 straight Riverdogs hitters. Willie Kempf and Steve Kent were flat out dominant with both guys striking out the side once. Kent has been filthy all season long with 42 K in 27.1 innings this season. He is allowing more runs as the season goes on but his peripherals are actually getting better with improved H/9, BB/9 and K/9 in each month (SSS warning).
