Mississippi 3, Birmingham 2 - Final 11 Innings - Braves lead 2-0
- K. Kaaihue 2-5 2 K
- J. Schafer 1-4 RBI, SF
- V. Pope 1-4 2B, RBI
- T. Hanson 7IP 6H 2R 0BB 9K
You know I think the thing I like the most about Hanson is his size. Dude is like 6' 6". That means he is probably going to be pretty durable and will be able to eat some innings. Jordan Schafer hit a sac fly in the 11th inning to score Matt Young (whose stolen base had put him on second and then was singled over by Kala) to give the Braves the win. Luis Valdez got the save in the game, his second in the series. There are some very good relievers on this team, especially if you still consider Medlen one. One more win and Mississippi moves on to the championship series.
Myrtle Beach 5, Winston Salem 1 - Pelicans lead 2-1
- E. Campbell 1-4 2B, BB
- E. Mejia 2-5 2B, 2 RBI
- T. Flowers 3-4 2 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB
- J. Heyward 0-2 3 BB, K
- C. Rohrbough 6IP 2H 1R 3BB 3K
So Tyler Flowers has got to be the MVP of this series already. Dude is hitting .538 in the series with a couple bombs and double. Heyward, I think, is doing a great job of contributing without having to get a bunch of hits. Cole Rohrbough showed up to this game and pitched like a man (or Tommy Hanson) as he only gave up 2 hits in his 6 innings. These teams play again tomorrow night and the Pelicans will have the chance to move on to the championship series. I think we will probably see Ryne Reynoso for the Beach.
