5/6

Indianapolis 7, Richmond 1

Diory Hernandez continues to hit with 2 more hits at AAA while playing 2B now. I like him better at second and some others have said so also. His bat definitely profiles better there. He still has some growing pains though as he made two errors in this game. Josh Anderson also had 3 hits in the loss. Also one last note. Scott Williamson pitched in this game. I didn't even know we had this guy. He had a great arm back in the day and was a go to reliever for a couple different teams. He hasn't really been relevant since 2005 though but *think* he has been injured.

Mississippi 2, West Tenn. 5

Jason Perry hit his 7th HR and Mark Jurich chipped in with his 3rd. I mean other than that i really don't know what to say. There aren't any prospects here to keep an eye on at this point. Soooooo moving on.

Potomac 4, Myrtle Beach 3

Brandon Powell hit his second homer of the year and other than that nothing too special went down in this game. Deunte Heath gave up 4 runs in 7 innings and still had a 1/1 K/BB rate. on the year he has a 22/25 K/BB ratio which just does not bode well at all.

Rome 0, Augusta 7

Wow a 4 game sweep by the Greenjackets. Also the Rome team piled 4 errors on themselves (2 from Freeman, Coe and Gress had the others). Let me also not forget the 15 strikeouts they piled up. Just not a good game. On top of it Jeff Locke got hammered pretty hard in his 4.2 IP and he gave up his first homer of the year.

 

5/7

Indianapolis 5, Richmond 6

Another 2 hit game for Hernandez in this one raising his average to .467 on the AAA season and extending his hitting streak to 12 games I believe. Very impressive start. Infante also had a couple knocks and 3 RBI for the R-Braves and Scott Thorman and Canizares both chipped in with hits. Nothing else exciting here other than Phil Stockman lowering his ERA to .89

Mississippi 7, West Tenn. 5

Mark Jurich busted out the whoopin stick in this one with a 3-4 ,2 doubles and 5 RBI performance. He is probably the second best hitter on the team right now, which isn't really saying a whole lot, but this is one of the toughest hitting environments in organized baseball (the Southern League). Perry, Holt and Guzman all had 2+ hits in the game to drive the offense a little more. Todd Redmond has given up 4 runs in 3 straight starts. The shine is starting to wear off a little.

Potomac 5, Myrtle Beach 11

There were a lot of hitters in this game but Willie Cabrera and Chad Ludahl both get special props for 3 hits and a HR. Kyle Cofield continues to have control issues. He walked 4 in 3 innings of work tonight and has walked 3+ in 6 straight starts. His stuff must be good because he isn't giving up a lot of runs. But still...

Rome 5, Greenville 1

Freddie Freeman continues to be the most consistent hitter for the Rome team going 2-4 with 2 doubles and 3 RBI. Heyward went 1-4 with a double and Benji Johnson hit his first homer of the season. Scott Diamond went 7 strong innings giving up only 1 run. He has pitched very solid baseball so far this season.


5/8

Indianapolis 2, Richmond 1

This is another 1 run game for Richmond. They are 7-7 in 1 run games this year (thats right, 14 of them total). Scott Williamson started the game for some reason but he gave up 2 runs in 1.2 innings and Charlie Morton promptly came in and went 7.1 allowing only 5 hits and no runs. Nice. He is currently sporting a 1.76 era.

Mississippi 9, West Tenn 7

OH MY GOD KALA KAAIHUE FINALLY HIT A HOMER IN AN AA GAME!!!!! STOP THE FREAKING PRESSES.

Myrtle Beach - Off Day

 

Rome 3, Greenville 5


Freddie Freeman added another double and Adam Coe chipped in a 2-4 performance but again these young Braves couldn't bring in the win. Eric Barrett wasn't his usual dominant self as he gave up 5 runs (3 earned) in his 3.1 innings of work. Michael Broadway did come in for 3.2 innings of work allowing only 1 hit and striking out 5
