Toledo 4, Gwinnett 6
- W. Timmons 1-2 HR(6), 2 RBI, 2BB, .297 Avg
- B. Canizares 2-3 RBI, BB, .323 Avg
- W. Cabrera 1-4 RBI, CS(1), .125 Avg
- W. Ramirez 1-4 K, .217 Avg
- B. Beachy 6IP 5H 1R 1BB 5K 3.60 ERA
Brandon Beachy made his first start in AAA tonight and picked up right where he left off in AA. He wasn't quite as god-like as his last couple of starts in Mississippi but definitely still impressive. Wes Timmons continues his hot play by reaching base 3 times tonight including his 2-run HR. Timmons had 0 home runs through the first two months of the season but has hit 6 since June started and has hit nearly .340 with an OPS hovering near .900 during that span. He may give Freddie Freeman a run for his money as Gwinnet hitter of the year.
Mobile 0, MIssissippi 2
- Y. Gomez 2-4 .318 Avg
- E. Duncan 2-4 HR(6), .284 Avg
- J. Teheran 5.2IP 0H 0R 3BB 7K 4.35 ERA
- T. Harris 3.1IP 0H 0R 1BB 6K 0.00 ERA
Julio Teheran and Ty'relle Harris combined for the first No Hitter of the year for Mississippi and (I believe) the first since Tommy Hanson's 7 inning No Hitter in 2008. Teheran, in just his second game in Mississippi, dominated the Mobile lineup racking up 7 K and striking out the side in the 5th inning. Harris, who has been solid at Rome and Myrtle Beach was fantastic in his first appearance for Mississippi. Cody Johnson also went 0-4 with 3K in this game.
Myrtle Beach 3, Kinston 1 - Suspended
I'll do the stats on this when the game actually finished tomorrow.
Savannah 1, Rome 4
- J. Leonard 2-3 2B, 2 RBI, BB, .284 Avg
- RSF 1-4 HR(2), 2 RBI, K, .283 Avg
- C. Bethancourt 3-4 .257 Avg
- B. DeVall 9IP 6H 1R 0BB 4K 3.62 ERA
Brett DeVall had a great game tonight but it wasn't even the best in the system. His complete game is one of the few tossed by any Braves pitcher (majors or minors) this season. He had a shutout going into the 9th inning but a lead-off double came around to score on a pair of groundouts. After a hot start and then a rough week or two Joe Leonard's bat is coming around again with 3 XBH in his last 5 games. he even picked up his 3rd walk in Rome!
Bluefield 1, Danville 7
- J. Terdoslavich 2-4 2 RBI, K, .268 avg
- D. Rohm 1-3 2B, 2 RBI, BB, K, .319 Avg
- E. Reyes 2-4 RBI, 2K, .262 Avg
- A. Northcraft 6IP 6H 1R 0BB 3K 2.90 ERA
- D. Filak 2IP 0H 0R 2BB 4K 2.25 ERA
The resurgent Danville Braves pull off another win and holds off Pulaski for 1st place. Aaron Northcraft improved to 5-0 on the season in his best Matt Crim impersonation. I hear good things about David Rohm's bat and so far he isn't disappointing me though I would like to see a little more power and a couple more walks.
GCL Braves 1, GCL Phillies 2
- M. Lipka 1-5 K, CS(3), .308 Avg
- D. Falcon 3-4 .351 Avg
- W. Perez 6IP 4H 0R 1BB 4K 4.28 ERA
The awesomely named Williams Perez put together his best start of the season but lost the win after his bullpen blew the game for him. Danny Falcon continues to show that the GCL is no match for him. Unfortunately he also showed that he is no match for the Appy League. Matt Lipka continues to slump and my guess is he is probably getting tired from never having played this much baseball this long into the summer.
