Richmond 2, Indianapolis 3 (Final 11 inn.)

  • W. Timmons - 2-5 2B
  • J. Borchard - 1-1 HR(4)
  • D. Moss - 4IP 5H 0R 2BB 5K

Former Braves great Damian Moss threw four solid innings in the start but the offense couldn't muster much in support of him. Joe Borchard did hit a pinch hit homer in the 8th which sent the teams into extras. Wes Timmons has a couple of hits and I kind of wish he would get called up this year and get a a couple of at bats because the guy has been in the organization since 2002 and has spent parts of 4 years at Richmond. He is just one of those classic organizational guys that I'd like to see rewarded for staying with the team for so long.

Mississippi 4, Chattanooga 6

  • R. Gorecki - 3-4 HR(1)
  • M. Young -  2-5 RBI, 2 K

Dan Smith gave up 6 runs in the first 2 innings of the game. That pretty much sealed the deal for the other 7 innings. Reid Gorecki is a guy we picked up a few days ago. He is a pretty good hitter and has been around for a while (mostly in the St. Louis system). He has been injured enough the past couple of seasons for the Cardinals to release him and the Braves quickly snapped him up to build up their surplus of journeymen OFs at Mississippi.

Myrtle Beach 3, Potomac 4

  • E. Mejia - 1-4 2B, K
  • B. Hicks - 1-2 HR(5), 2 RBI, 2 BB
  • P. Britton - 2-4 HR(1), 2 K

Hicks gets back to hitting a little and I'm encouraged by the fact that he did walk twice and didn't strike out any. For a college guy he racks up a lot of Ks. Phil Britton is a guy I was high on last season but he hasn't done a whole lot this season. Looking at his stats though he is hitting .252 which isn't bad for a catcher that plays half his games in Myrtle Beach. I'll give him some more time.

Augusta @ Rome ppd due to Raining
