Moylan Starts His Rehab, Schlosser And Wood Have Scoreless Starts, And Snitker Has A Perfect Day At The Plate In Saturday's Atlanta Braves Minor League Action

Charlotte Knights 5, Gwinnett Braves 3

Eric Junge pitched a strong game for the G-Braves allowing only 1 run on 5 baserunners across 7 innings. He stuck out 5, and was in line to snap Gwinnett's long losing streak, but Cory Gearrin imploded, allowing 4 runs and taking the loss, Gwinnett's 15th in a row. Jose Constanza had a three-single day for the G-Braves, while Tyler Pastornicky chipped in a pair. J.C. Boscan had a 2-RBI double in the 9th, but it wasn't enough to come back.

Todd Redmond goes tomorrow for Gwinnett.

Chattanooga Lookouts 8, Mississippi Braves 5

Sean Gilmartin was not at his sharpest tonight, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks over 6 innings to the Lookouts. Gilmartin did manage to strike out 4 men and get 8 groundouts to only 2 flyouts, however. Mississippi, despite 5 runs, was only able to manage 5 hits. Phil Gosselin and Keenan Wiley posted identical lines, going 1-4 with a run, RBI, and walk. Christian Bethancourt had the big hit for the M-Braves with a bases loaded triple. The triple was, startlingly, only Bethancourt's 4th extra base hit of the year.

Luis Avilan goes tomorrow as Mississippi opens a series with the Mobile Bay Bears.

Lynchburg Hillcats 1, Wilmington Blue Rocks 0
Lynchburg won a wild one, scoring the only run of the night in the top of the 9th inning on a sacrifice fly. Gus Schlosser pitched a gem against Wilmington, allowing only 4 hits across 6 innings while striking our a half-dozen. Matt Chaffee picked up the win in relief of Schlosser by throwing 2 hitless innings. Hillcat pitching limited Blue Rocks' hitters to only 5 baserunners all evening. Nick Ahmed was the only Hillcat to notch a multi-hit game, going 2-4 on the day. Edward Salcedo went 1-4 on the day, but stole his 14th and 15th bases of the year.
