Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 8/29

Randall Delgado seems to have this AA thing figured out.

Playoff Hunt

Myrtle Beach - Another Pelicans loss coupled with another Kinston win puts Myrtle Beach 3.5 games back with 7 games to go.

Danville -The D-Braves lost to Burlington, putting the two into a tie for the league's final playoff spot. The teams will be able to decide their own fate, as their final two games are against each other.

Gwinnett 8, Norfolk 4

  • M. Young 2-5, RBI, .305 AVG
  • T. Glaus 1-3, BB, .385 AVG
  • B. Canizares 2-4, 2B, HR (11), 4 RBI, .337 AVG
  • W. Timmons 2-3, BB, .298 AVG
  • B. Beachy 6 IP, 4 R, 1 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 5 K, 2.50 ERA
  • C. Kimbrel 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 2 K, 1.71 ERA
  • Brandon Beachy was the vicitm of his own defense, as the team allowed 3 unearned runs to cross, but the offense more than made up for it and it ended up being another good outing for the Braves' most surprising prospect. In his last 3 starts, Beachy has a 1.53 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. Freddie Freeman was 0-5, ending his 10 game hitting streak. Matt Young rapped out another pair of hits, making him 7-14 in his last 3 starts. Barbaro Canizares has basically locked up the IL batting title, and his .391 average and 1.022 OPS since the All-Star break are just insane.

    Mississippi 6, Carolina 2

    T. Pastornicky 2-2, HR (2), RBI, .254 AVG
  • C. Colonel 1-1, HR (1), 2 RBI, BB, .143 AVG
  • R. Delgado 6.2 IP, 2 ER, 1 H, 2 BB, 9 K, W (2), 5.26 ERA
  • R. Sullivan 2 IP, 0 R 1 H, 0 BB, 3 K, SV (1), 5.18 ERA
  • After a rough adjustment period, Randall Delgado seems to have gotten the hang of AA, allowing just 1 hit and 2 walks while striking out 9 over 6.2 innings tonight. In his last 2 starts, he's has a 2.84 ERA and a 0.79 WHIP after having a 6.48 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP in his first 5 starts with the M-Braves. Richard Sullivan continues to thrive in relief, 2.02 ERA and a 0.85 WHIP in 22.1 August innings. Tyler Pastornicky extends his hitting streak to 4 games, hitting his second homer in three games. Christian Colonel, a corner infielder playing for his 4th team in his 3rd organization this season, made his first hit with Mississippi count, cracking out a 2 run homer.

    Myrtle Beach 4, Winston-Salem 5, 13 innings

  • G. Rodriguez 2-4, HR (12), RBI, BB, .249 AVG
  • C. Johnson 3-4, HR (4), 3 RBI, 0 K, .277 AVG
  • S. Sime 2-5, .255 AVG
  • P. Clemens 7 IP, 4 ER, 7 H, 1 BB, 6 K, 3.49 ERA
  • T. Palica 2 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 BB, 5 K, 2.45 ERA
  • Winston-Salem's Drew Garcia hit a 13th inning walkoff single off Tom Berryhill to seal the victory for the Dash, putting the Pelicans' playoff hopes in doubt. Paul Clemens made his longest start of the season and while 4 earned runs is too many, he's still been good as a starter, with a 2.45 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP in 36.2 innings. Gerry Rodriguez clubbed out his 12 homer of the year, and he's 4-7 in his last 2 games. Last season with the Pelicans Cody Johnson struck out in 40% of his at bats, this year, in a very limited amount of time, he's struck out in 31% of his at bats.
