Another W for Danville, moving to 11-3 on the season. Might be time to move some of these guys up a level to help the struggling Rome. Max Provse made his first pro start, tossing two scoreless innings, striking out three. The rest of the staff did its job, totaling 16K's, only surrendering one walk. That's a solid outing right there. The offense only collected five hits, but managed seven walks allowing five runners to cross. They also leveraged their speed, stealing five bases, four off of the Henery/Vallot battery in the 7th and 8th.

The GCL squad took on the Phillies again, losing 6-5 despite the 12 hit performance. A late rally by the Phillies spoiled a good offensive showing, most notably from Luke Dykstra who reached all five times - a double, three single and a walk. A source at a the game told our own Ethan Purser he walked away impressed with this year's 7th round pick. He praised his swing and ability to drive the ball into the gaps. Ray-Patrick Didder hit leadoff, ripping a triple and a single, scoring one of the five runs. 22-year-old Erison Mendez also had two hits, adding a walk, scoring two of the Braves runs. On the bump, Jordany Santana went five innings, giving up three runs on nine hits. The bullpen couldn't hold the lead, allowing three runs in the final innings.
