Gwinnett - Postponed, Rain

Mississippi 2, Brimingham 6

  • W. Cabrera 1-4, 2B, RBI, .312 AVG
  • O. Mercado 2-4, 2B, .281 AVG
  • K. Cofield 5 IP, 4 ER, 8 H, 1 BB, 2 K, 5.01 ERA
  • In his 5 starts since returning to the rotation, Kyle Cofield has a 6.75 ERA and a 2.02 WHIP in 17.1 innings. Yeliar Castro was very solid for Myrtle Beach, with a 3.49 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP in 59.1 innings, but he's gotten lit up in 3.2 innings with Mississippi, with a 17.18 ERA and a 2.72 WHIP.

    Myrtle Beach 3, Frederick 6

  • C. Harrilchak 2-4, .283 AVG
  • Mi. Jones 2-4, .269 AVG
  • P. Clemens 5 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 5 H, 1 BB, 2 K, 3.02 ERA
  • Paul Clemens pitched well in his second straight starting assignment; he's allowed just 1 earned run in 10 innings over those 2 starts with 11 strikeouts and just 1 walk. Big Mike Jones has been tearing it up in August, with a .448 average and .948 OPS in 29 at bats.

    Rome 2, Greenville 4

  • P. Gosselin 2-4, 2B, RBI, .329 AVG
  • T. Cunningham 2-4, .268 AVG
  • C. Masters 5 IP, 3 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 9 K, 3.60 ERA
  • D. Hale 2 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 4 BB, 3 K, 4.20 ERA
  • Phil Gosselin has also enjoyed August, with a .364 average and a .886 OPS in 33 at bats. Chris Masters struck out 9, but he also allowed 3 earned runs in 5 innings, continuing a bad trend that has seen his ERA rise dramatically since the start of June. Since the start of July, David Hale has a 0.61 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP in 29.1 relief innings. His future definitely lies in the pen.

    Danville 2, Bristol 8

  • E. Reyes 2-4, .286 AVG
  • R. Delgado 2-3, RBI, .263 AVG
  • R. Pacheco 4 IP, 7 R, 6 ER, 11 H, 1 BB, 3 K, 6.62 ERA
  • T. Stovall 2 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 0 K, 3.26 ERA
  • Elmer Reyes has a 4 game hitting streak and has gotten a hit in 6 of his last 7 games, going 11-27 in that span. With a 6.62 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP in 35.1 innings, Ronan Pacheco hasn't had much success this year, and tonight was one of his worst outings of the season. The 22 year old is averaging 10.4 K/9, but his numbers overall just aren't good.

    GCL Braves 2, GCL Blue Jays 10

  • M. Lipka 1-5, SB (15), .310 AVG
  • D. Falcon 2-4, HR (2), RBI, .342 AVG
  • Ku. Fleming 2-4, 3B, .223 AVG
  • R. Tate 1.2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 2 K, 0.00 ERA
  • Matt Lipka has cooled off a lot, with a .176 average in his last 9 games, but still, the Braves have to be pleased with how this year's first selection has played. With a .342 average and .833 OPS in 76 at bats in the GCL, Daniel Falcon has done well enough he deserves another crack at Danville.

    DSL Braves 7, DSL Blue Jays 4

  • G. Reyes 5-5, 2B, 3 RBI, 3 SB (18, 19, 20), .302 AVG
  • A. Alcantra 3-5, RBI, .293 AVG
  • F. Marte 2-4, RBI, BB, .260 AVG
  • H. Garcia 2-2, 2B, 3B, RBI, BB, .263 AVG
  • A. Nin 5 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 0 BB, 2 K, W (1), 4.76 ERA
  • 19 year old second baseman Gerardo Reyes cause havoc today, with  5 hits and 3 steals. In his last 4 games he's gone 9-16. 20 year old first baseman Aris Alcantra continues his fine season with a 3 hit game. 18 year old centerfielder Hector Garcia, a childhood friend of Julio Teheran, has heated up with the summer, with a .316 average and .954 OPS in 19 August at bats.
