It was an ugly game for Gwinnett, only reaching base four times in a 7-0 loss. There were not many positives to report from Monday night. The offense only came away with 3 singles and a double. Joe Bisenius made the start and went six innings giving up three earned. Mark Lamm got two outs and gave up four runs in the 9th in his fifth outing with Gwinnett which put the game out of reach. Tyler Pastornicky put another hit up on the board in his return to Triple-A.
Mississippi Braves - PPD (Wet Grounds)
Both games will be made up as part of two separate doubleheaders on August 8 & 10.
Myrtle Beach Pelicans 1, Lynchburg Hillcats 2
- Matt Lipka CF: 1-4, SB (21) – (.275/.318/.396)
- Josh Elander LF: 0-3, BB – (.224/.361/.299)
- Elmer Reyes SS: 1-2, 3B (3), BB, R – (.275/.311/.393)
- Kyle Kubitza 3B: 1-2, 2BB, R – (.253/.381/.439)
- Ryan Hinson: 7IP, 4H, ER, 4BB, 4K (13 IP, 1.38 ERA, 7K/4BB)
- John Cornley: IP, 0H, 0ER, 0BB, 2K (32 IP, 4.22 ERA, 48K/16BB)
Lynchburg was able to tie the game in the 8th and then go ahead in the 9th for the 2-1 victory. They were only able to scatter five hits, but with some errors and some luck, they pulled it off in walk-off fashion thanks to a wild pitch scoring Kyle Kubitza. Speaking of Kubitza, he reached base three of his four times at the plate, pushing his season OBP to .381. Elmer Reyes added his third triple of the season. Ryan Hinson made his second start with Lynchburg, going seven innings, only giving up one run. John Cornley pitched the 9th, striking out two, picking up the win.
Lakewood BlueClaws 2, Rome Braves 3
- Kyle Wren CF: 3-5, 3B (1), 3R – (.381/.422/.560)
- Jose Peraza SS: 0-2, R, SB (42) – (.275/.345/.351)
- Carlos Franco 3B: 2-4, 2B (13), R – (.218/.297/.274)
- Chase Anselment C: 2-4, HR (2), R – (.282/.320/.437)
- Daniel Carroll RF: 1-4, 2B (1), 2R, SB (1) – (.130/.261/.130)
- Jason Hursh: 3IP, 0H, 0ER, BB, K (9.2 IP, 0.00 ERA, 8K/6BB)
- Patrick Scoggin: 3IP, 3H, 0ER, 0BB, 3K (80 IP, 3.60 ERA 68K/33BB)
Rome put the beat down on Lakewood Monday night, 10-2. Jason Hursh made his fourth appearance in Rome; he didn’t allow a hit or a run over three innings. Watching some of his start, I was impressed by the tempo at which he worked. It was quick pace, but he still seemed under control and was able to induce weak contact. Patrick Scoggin came in for the next three innings and also pitched shutout baseball, striking out three. Kyle Wren was at it again, going 3-5 with a triple and three runs scored. He has now reached base in 19 of his 20 career games as a pro, hitting safely in 18 of them. Jose Peraza was removed from the game in the 6th after being hit by a pitch, no word on the severity of his injury. He did steal his 42nd base earlier in the game and is now 42 for 50 on the season.
Danville Braves 3, Elizabethton Twins 3 (Suspended in 5th)
From what I could find, this game will end in a 3-3 tie and Danville will start a three game series today with Bluefield.
Danville jumped ahead and scored three in the first before giving back those runs in the 3rd and 5th innings. Mikey Reynolds, Johan Camargo, Victor Caratini and Bryan De La Rosa each had hits, while the lineup as a whole worked seven walks. Michael Flores had a rather pedestrian start, giving up three runs on four hits.
