Charlotte 1, Richmond 3
A solid win for the R-Braves with all the runs coming off a 4th inning shot from Clint Sammons. Also put me in the Phil Stockman fan club. I am really surprised by what has been up with Lillibridge this season. He is batting .152 after having a solid spring and nearly making the big club. I was really high on him but he just hasn't hit at all. Has anyone seen him in Spring Training or Richmond that could tell what may different between the two? Also Canizares 8 game hitting streak ended tonight if you were keeping track.
Huntsvilles 10, Mississippi 2 (in progress)
Carlos Sencion got lit up in his first AA outing giving up 2 runs in 0.2IP and Dan Smith is getting beat hard so far this season. Also Van Pope was activated from the DL with little fanfare. Diory Hernandez hit his second homer of the season and drove in the only other run of the game for the Braves. How long do you guys think before Hanson is the anchor here? A month? Two?
Myrtle Beach 8, Kinston 0
So until Tommy Hanson allows an earned run he won't move off the top of my HOTLIST. I'm just saying. The dude has allowed 6BB and 5H this season in 22IP. Just amazing. Maybe he has developed the double gyro-ball. Also, if Gorkys goes hitless in a game he is guaranteed to get at least two hits in the next game. He has done it following every hitless game he has had this season. Deunte Heath looks to one up Tommy tomorrow.
Savannah 5, Rome 4
Ortegano pitched pretty damn well, but Rodgers came in and blew it for him. They did K 12 in 9IP, but this team needs to stop letting people cross home plate. Freddie Freeman has turned into the most consistent hitter on this team. He had a little adjustment period at the beginning of the season but he has 4 multi-hit games in his last ten played and 5 of his 6 XBH. Hopefully these guys will start to show more power soon as a whole.
