Gwinnett dropped a close game to the Bats last night, losing 6-5. Christian Bethancourt, hitting cleanup, paced the offense with 3 hits, while Phil Gosselin added a pair. Tyler Pastornicky hit his second double since being demoted, and is looking more and more like a Quad-A player every day. Joey Terdoslavich, who was dropped to 6th in the order after scuffling lately, reached base three times. On the mound, Gus Schlosser was thoroughly unimpressive, allowing 4 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks over 6 innings.
Mississippi Braves 2, Tennessee Smokies 3
Emerson Landoni, 2B: 2-4, SB(5), .267
Myke Jones, CF: 1-3, BB, SB(8), .287
Elmer Reyes, SS: 1-4, 2B(14), .327
Jason Hursh, SP: 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 3.44 ERA
The M-Braves also lost a one run game last night, only scraping out 2 runs on 6 hits. Emerson Landoni was the only M-Brave to notch a multi-hit game, going 2-4 with his 5th steal of the year. Myke Jones also had a decent game as well, going 1-3 with a walk and his 8th steal of the year. Jason Hursh had a decent start, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits in 5 innings. TC's own Ian Morris was in attendance, and reported that Hursh was being hit hard, and didn't have great breaking stuff. I believe he'll be writing up his observations in more detail later, so be on the lookout for that.
Lynchburg was pretty punchless outside of the speedy duo of Peraza and Wren at the top of the order. Each notched three-hit games, with Peraza swiping his 31st base of the year and Wren his 29th. Wren is currently rocking a 14 game hit streak, during which he has raised his average almost 40 points, to .290. Daniel Castro also had a decent game, going 2-4 with his 6th steal of the year. Wes Parsons was mediocre tonight, giving up 4 runs on 7 hits in just over 6 innings.
Augusta Green Jackets 2, Rome Braves 3 (14 innings)
Rome was the only team in the system that won yesterday. They have 43 losses. Let that sink in. Yuck. Despite going 14 innings, Rome only mustered 9 hits, with a full third of them coming off the bat of Johan Camargo. Camargo is now hitting a perfectly acceptable .271, which is pretty remarkable given his awful start. Blake Brown and Ross Wilson each had impressive games as well, drawing three walks apiece to go along with a single. Carlos Sanchez, who came in midway through the game, got the walk-off winner with an RBI bases-loaded single in the bottom of the 14th. Tyler Brosius had a hell of a start, allowing just 3 hits across 7 innings. A Carlos Franco error let in both Augusta runs on the evening.
