Salcedo Leads Big Day From Lynchburg's Offense, Alcantara Drives In 4, And Teheran Struggles Again In Sunday's Atlanta Braves Minor League Action

Edward Salcedo, David Rohm, and Chris Garcia led the way as Lynchburg's offense exploded again, albeit in a losing effort, Aris Alcantara had a big day for Danville, and Julio Teheran struggled again for Gwinnett.

World Futures 5, US Futures 17

Christian Bethancourt C 0-3

Christian Bethancourt, a 20 year old native of Panama, started at catcher and batted 9th for the World team in the Futures Game, going 0-3 in a losing effort. Bethancourt is an excellent defensive catcher, but his bat still needs work, as evidence by his .254 batting average and .558 OPS in 189 at bats for AA Mississippi this season.

Gwinnett Braves 11, Durham Bulls 9

Julio Teheran's struggles continued, as he allowed 7 earned runs in just 5 innings. He's allowed 20 earned runs in 16.2 innings over his last 4 starts after allowing 20 earned runs in 58.1 innings over his first 12 starts. That slump has raised his ERA from 3.09 to 4.92. Dusty Hughes followed him with 3 scoreless innings, and over his last 6 appearances, he's allowed 1 earned run in 7.2 innings. Luis Durango reached base 4 times, drove in a pair of runs, and stole a base for the second straight day. In his last 8 games, he's gone 11-31 with 4 walks. Tyler Pastornicky hit his first homer with Gwinnett and over his last 10 games he's hitting .308 with a .878 OPS, 3 doubles, 8 RBI, and 7 walks. Stefan Gartrell had a pair of hits, and in his last 5 games he's gone 8-21 with 2 doubles, a homer, and a RBI. In his last 5 games, Ruben Gotay has gone 6-17 with 2 doubles, 2 homers, 4 RBI, and 3 walks. Jose Yepez extended his hitting streak to 8 games, and during that stretch he's gone 11-29 with 4 doubles, a homer, and 5 RBI.

Gwinnett is off for the next 3 days for the All-Star break before beginning a series in Louisville on Thursday.
