  • Joe Leonard, 3B: 1-2, 2B, .226
  • Alden Carrithers, LF: 1-3, 2B, .299

  • Joe Bisenius, SP: 5 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 3 K, 5.63 ERA
Gwinnett was swept in an abbreviated doubleheader last night, scoring only 2 runs in 14 innings of play. The first came on a Joe Leonard double, while the second came on a Stefan Gartrell home run - his eighth of the year. Cody Martin took the hard luck loss in game one, allowing two runs on only 1 hit. Joe Bisenius was the hard luck loser in the nightcap, allowing only 1 run in his 5 innings of work. Jordan Schafer continued his rehab, going 0-7.

Mississippi Braves 7, Huntsville Stars 5
  • Barrett Kleinknecht, 3B-SS: 3-4, 2 HR(7,8), BB, 3 R, .251

  • Christian Bethancourt, C: 1-6, .277
  • Michael Lee, SP: 6 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 4.27 ERA
Mississippi was the only Braves affiliate to post a win yesterday, and they did thanks largely in part to a career day from super utility man Barrett Kleinknecht. "Klank," as he's nicknamed, blasted a pair of home runs, singled, drew a walk, and scored three times. It was the first multi-homer game of his career. Meanwhile, Tommy La Stella extended his team-record hitting streak to 23 games with a bases-clearing, go-ahead 3 RBI double in the fourth inning.

Lynchburg Hillcats 0, Winston-Salem Dash 5
  • Kyle Kubitza, 3B: 1-3, BB, .263
  • David Rohm, RF: 1-4, OF Assist, .289
  • Jarrett Miller, SP: 4.1 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 6 K, 3.61 ERA
Ugly game last night for Lynchburg, as they were four-hit by the Dash. Kyle Kubitza was the only Hillcat to reach base more than once, with a single and a walk. Jarrett Miller struck out 6 men in 4.1 innings of work, but was victimized by 2 Dash home runs.

Augusta Green Jackets 7, Rome Braves 4
  • Kyle Wren, CF: 2-5, 3B, .325
  • Carlos Franco, 3B: 3-3, 2B, 2 BB, .224
  • Frank Lafreniere, SP: 5.2 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 1 BB, 3 K, 5.93 ERA
Rome lost to Augusta last night despite a perfect night at the plate from Carlos Franco. The Rome third baseman reached base in all 5 plate appearances, with 2 singles, 2 walks, and a double. Kyle Wren flashed his speed, legging out a triple as part of a 2-5 night. Unfortunately for Rome's offense, starter Frank Lafreniere was shelled over his 5.2 innings of work. He allowed 5 runs on 10 hits.

GCL Braves 6, GCL Phillies 9
  • Cody Livesay, CF: 2-4, BB, SB(12), .311
  • Ian Hagenmiller, 3B: 3-4, 2B, RBI, BB, .239
  • Fernelys Sanchez, RF: 1-3, BB, .204
  • Jose Morel, LF: 2-5, 2 SB(4,5), .288
  • Sean Gilmartin, SP: 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K
Sean Gilmartin rehabbed with the GCL team last night and looked great, allowing 1 hit and nothing else through 4 innings of work. He also whiffed 6 men. Unfortunately, the GCL pen promptly blew the game by allowing 9 runs after Gilmartin came out. Cody Livesay continued his strong leadoff work for the GCL Braves, while Ian Hagenmiller reached base 4 times.
