Both Yohan Flande and Gary Moran turned in strong starts tonight, and while Flande got a win, Moran was let down by his defense. Stefan Gartrell had a two hit game while Keenan Wiley did a little bit of everything tonight.
Lehigh Valley IronPigs 0, Gwinnett Braves 4
- Stefan Gartrell, RF: 2-4, R, .263
- Joey Terdoslavich, 3B: 1-4, R, RBI, .194
- Josh Wilson, SS: 1-3, R, .234

- Cory Gearrin, RP: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 0.91 ERA
The good Yohan Flande from the beginning of the year showed up tonight and tossed a gem against the Phillies
AAA affiliate Lehigh Valley. Flande went 7 innings, allowing only 3 hits and a walk while striking out 5. Over his last 14 innings, Flande has only allowed 8 hits, 2 walks, and 1 run - not too shabby at all. Cory Gearrin kept on doing Cory Gearrin things, tossing a perfect 9th. He should really replace Medlen in the bullpen. Gwinnett only mustered 5 hits all game, but somehow found a way to string together 4 runs. Stefan Gartrell was 2-4 and was the only G-Brave to have a multi-hit game. Joey Terdoslavich went 1-4 and is now 5 for his last 19, which is something positive.
Montgomery Biscuits 4, Mississippi Braves 1
- Keenan Wiley, RF: 1-3, 2B, RBI, BB, SB(9), .309
- Todd Conningham, CF: 2-4, 2B, .303
- Alden Carrithers, LF: 1-3, 2B, R, .324
- Gary Moran, SP: 7 IP, 6 H, 4 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 4 K, 2.82 ERA
Gary Moran was dealing tonight and was shutting down the Biscuits until the 4th inning when his defense collapsed behind him. 2 errors led to 4 unearned runs scoring, and that would prove to be the difference. Moran threw very well, allowing only 7 baserunners across 7 innings while striking out 4. Moran takes the loss despite allowing no earned runs (pitcher W-L is silly) and dropping his already excellent ERA down to 2.82. Behind him, the M-Braves were only able to muster 5 hits. Keenan Wiley reached based twice with a double and a walk, the former driving in Mississippi's lone run. Wiley also stole his 9th base of the year. Andrelton Simmons
, who was just named the Southern League Hitter of the Week, went hitless in 4 at-bats.
Luis Avilan takes the mound tomorrow against the Biscuits.
