Gwinnett's offense was clicking on all cylinders Thursday evening, putting up ten runs on 15 hits. Left fielder Brandon Boggs was the star of the show and finished a home run shy of the cycle, going 3-for-4 with a couple of RBIs and runs scored. Joey Terdoslavich, who is currently mired in a bit of a slump over his past ten games, showed positive signs at the plate, lacing a pair of doubles. Tommy La Stella collected three hits and walked once, bringing his season line to .303/.389/.349. Catcher Steven Lerud, occupying the ninth spot in Gwinnett's order, launched his third home run of the season. Gus Schlosser was hit around in his six innings of work, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks, fanning one. Atahualpa Severino and Pedro Beato were solid in middle relief, and Juan Jaime allowed a run in his one inning of work to close out the game.

Good job, good effort, Mississippi. Chattanooga flat-out dominated the Braves in this contest, totaling 15 runs on 15 hits. Ian Morris and I were in attendance for this contest and will probably have something scouting-based up in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Kyle Kubitza and Elmer Reyes were the only bright spots in Mississippi's lineup, with the former ripping two doubles and the latter going 2-for-4 on the evening. After a miserable April, Kubitza is putting together an absolute torrid May, slashing .368/.507/.474 since the calendar flipped. The Braves' pitching was an absolute disaster, headlined by David Bromberg's start. Bromberg allowed nine runs on seven hits and three walks, striking out three. In addition, he allowed a fourth inning grand slam to Darnell Sweeney, Chattanooga's shortstop. Ryan Weber and Ryne Harper had so-so appearances out of the bullpen, while lefty Chasen Shreve was lit up in an inning and two-thirds, allowing four runs on four hits and a walk, striking out three.

Lynchburg Hillcats 6, Potomac Nationals 4
  • Jose Peraza, 2B: 3-4, 2 R, 3B (4), RBI, BB, SB (22), .330
  • Kyle Wren, CF: 0-3, R, RBI, K, .263
  • Josh Elander, DH: 2-5, R, 2B (7), RBI, K, .248
  • Levi Hyams, 1B: 1-3, 2B (7), RBI, BB, K, .296
  • Will Skinner, RF: 1-4, .255
  • Daniel Castro, SS: 1-4, R, 2B (9), .282
  • Joseph Odom, C: 1-3, R, BB, .210
  • Lucas Sims, RHP: 7.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 4:13 GO:FO, 4.04 ERA
  • Benino Pruneda, RHP: 2.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 1:2 GO:FO, 3.18 ERA
Top prospect Lucas Sims started for the Hillcats on Thursday and pitched seven solid innings in the winning effort, allowing three runs on five hits and no walks, fanning two. He was relieved by Benino Pruneda, who gave up a run on three hits and two walks in two innings of work, fanning two. Jose Peraza was the straw that stirred the drink at the top of the order, collecting three hits, including his fourth triple of the season, and taking a walk. The second baseman also swiped a bag, scored a couple of runs, and knocked in one of his own. Josh Elander continued his hot hitting of late since being taken off the disabled list. He collected a couple of hits, including his seventh double of the season, scoring and knocking in a run. Levi Hyams and Daniel Castro also collected doubles in this contest.

Greensboro Grasshoppers 7, Rome Braves 3
  • Connor Oliver, CF: 0-5, 4 K, .301
  • Ronald Luna, 2B: 1-4, R, RBI, E (1, throw), .190
  • Victor Caratini, C: 1-4, 2 K, PB (3), .289
  • Joey Meneses, 1B: 1-3, RBI, BB, K, .300
  • Victor Reyes, RF: 0-2, RBI, BB, .342
  • Carlos Franco, 3B: 1-3, R, BB, E (9, fielding), .213
  • Blake Brown, 0-4, 3 K, .214
  • Johan Camargo, SS: 2-3, R, BB, .208
  • Matt Marksberry, LHP: 5.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 5:4 GO:FO, 3.94 ERA
  • Tyler Brosius, RHP: 2.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 4:4 GO:FO, 4.71 ERA
  • Michael Swanner, RHP: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 1:1 GO:FO, 4.76 ERA
Rome's offense was held in check for most of the night against Greensboro, scoring all three of their runs in the bottom of the eighth inning. All six of Rome's hits were singles, with Johan Camargo being the only player to collect multiple hits. Though he has looked rough for the most of the season, Camargo looks to be turning a corner, slashing .303/.343/.333 in his past ten games. Though this line isn't wholly impressive, when one looks at his .167/.242/.167 line from April, it's hard not to be impressed with his recent improvements. Matt Marksberry allowed three runs on five hits in five and one-third innings of work, walking and fanning three apiece. Tyler Brosius was victimized by bad defense, allowing four runs, though none of them were earned, over two and two-thirds innings, fanning two. Michael Swanner also contributed a scoreless inning in relief.
