Jose Constanza, LF: 2-4, R, BB, K, SB(12) - .264/.318/.306
Omar Poveda, SP: 5 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 4 BB, 6 K - 3.39 ERA
Luis Ayala, RP: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K - 0.00 ERA
Cory Rasums, RP: 1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 1 K - 2.42 ERA
Gwinnett won a wild one over the Chiefs last night in the bottom of the ninth. Tasked with protecting a 2-run lead, Cory Rasmus imploded, giving up a go-ahead three run bomb to Chiefs 3B Zach Walters. But, luckily for Rasmus, Joey Terdoslavich got to hit in the bottom of the frame. Terdo delivered with his second bomb of the day, this one a two-run walk-off job, and Gwinnett triumphed 9-8. The homers were Terdo's 16th and 17th, and he's now slugging a robust .582. The rest of the outfield combined for 4 hits, with Todd Cunningham and Jose Constanza each hitting 2 singles. Luis Ayala made his second relief appearance, and was sharp, whiffing two in a scoreless frame.
Birmingham Barons 5, Mississippi Braves 4
Christian Bethancourt, C: 3-4, HR(3), 2 RBI, K - .258/.276/.362
Christian Marrero, 1B: 1-3, 2B, R, BB - .242/.399/.408
Myke Jones, CF: 2-3, R - .226/.315/.306
Gus Schlosser, SP: 6.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 5 K - 2.35 ERA
Mark Lamm, RP: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 K - 2.23 ERA
Ryne Harper, RP: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 1 K - 2.49 ERA
The bullpen spoiled a great start from Gus Schlosser and cost Mississippi a win last night. Schlosser was fantastic, hurling 6.2 innings of one-run ball. He only allowed 6 baserunners, and struck out 5 men. Unfortunately, Mark Lamm and Ryne Harper each gave up a pair of runs in the 9th to give the Barons the win. Christian Bethancourt hit his third home run of the year, bringing his OPS all the way up to .638. I'm beginning to wonder if the bat will ever come around, but, shockingly, that .638 OPS is actually higher than it's been since Bethancourt was in Rome.
Winston-Salem Dash 5, Lynchburg Hillcats 0
David Rohm, DH: 1-4 - .287/.340/.405
Elmer Reyes, SS: 1-3 - .299/.325/.429

Billy Bullock, RP: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K - 1.42 ERA
Not too much to say about the Hillcats, who got three-hit last night by the Dash. David Rohm, Elmer Reyes, and Matt Weaver each had a single and that was the extent of the offense for Lynchburg. Jarrett Miller had a so-so start, allowing 4 runs in 6 innings of work. He did strike out seven, however.
Charleston RiverDogs 3, Rome Braves 7
Jose Pereza, SS: 3-5, RBI, K, SB(21) - .266/.315/.340

Edison Sanchez, DH: 3-4, 2 2B, 2 R - .283/.306/.457
Chase Anselment, C: 2-4, 2B, 2 R, K - .295/.317/.436
Trenton Moses, 1B: 2-4, 2B, RBI, K - .364/.447/.523
Williams Perez, SP: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 0 BB, 6 K - 4.17
Shae Simmons, RP: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 2 K - 2.12 ERA
Rome rapped out a whopping 16 hits in win of Charleston last night, including 4 doubles. Jose Pereza and Edison Sanchez lead the way with 3 hits apiece, including two doubles by Sanchez. Josh Elander, Chase Anselment, and Trenton Moses each had a pair as well. Pereza showed off his wheels by swiping his 21st bag of the year and even Elander got in on the fun, stealing his 6th. Williams Perez had a solid start for Rome, allowing 3 runs over 5 innings of work. He whiffed 6 men and didn't walk a batter. Shae Simmons pulled a rare feat in the 8th inning, allowing 4 baserunners but no runs.
Danville Braves - Postponed
GCL Braves 0, GCL Astros 8
Victor Reyes, LF: 1-4
Reed Harper, SS: 1-4, K
Ibrahim McKenzie, 1B: 1-4
Nelson Leon, SP: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 3 K
Andy Otero, RP: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K
Rafael Rodriguez, RP: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K
Not wanting Lynchburg to feel left out, the GCL Braves were also three-hit yesterday. Ibrahim McKenzie, Reed Harper, and Victor Reyes accounted for the three hits - all singles. For McKenzie and Harper, it was their first hits of the year. The GCL Braves got several good pitching performances, but an implosion by reliever Christian Barczykowski put the game firmly out of reach.
