Indianapolis Indians 4, Gwinnett Braves 3 (F/7) - Game 2

  • Todd Cunningham CF: 1-4
  • Mark Hamilton 1B: 1-3, HR (4), R
  • Christian Bethancourt C: 1-3, E (3)
  • Brandon Boggs RF: 1-3, R
  • Tommy La Stella PH: 1-1
  • Mitch Atkins: 4IP, 3H, 3ER, BB, 3K, 72 pitches - 43 strikes
  • Mark Lamm: 3IP, 2H, 0ER, 0BB, 3K, 44 pitches - 36 strikes

Gwinnett took a normally shorted game one into the 10th and came away victorious as Brandon Boggs hit a walk off double to score Mark Hamilton. Hamilton started the inning with a one-out double, good for his second hit of the night.  The offense went for 11 hits, including five extra-base hits. Edward Salcedo filled up the box score going 1-2 with a double and HBP, scoring two runs. He added his fifth stolen base of the season, swiping third off Indians starter Jake Bringham. On the mound Cody Martin used a mix off movement and off speed pitches to go six strong, giving up two runs on five hits. His strikeout and walk rates won't knock your socks off, but his ability to keep hitter off-balance has allowed him to be a viable insurance option for the Atlanta rotation.

Game two only took the scheduled seven innings, but Gwinnett took the loss and a reversal of game one's final. Mitch Atkina and Mark Lamm split the game, giving up three runs on five hits. Lamm pounded the zone, throwing 82% of his pitches for strikes, striking out three. Aside from Mark Hamilton's solo shot in the fourth, there wasn't much offense to speak of. Gwinnett only reached five other times, but failed to drive any other runners across the plate. Indianapolis's star right fielder Gregory Polanco again filled up the box score, ripping his 14th double of the season.

Tennessee Smokies 3, Mississippi Braves 1

  • Daniel Carroll CF: 0-3, HBP
  • Emerson Landoni 2B: 0-1, BB, 2HBP
  • Elmer Reyes SS: 0-4
  • Kyle Kubitza 3B: 1-3, BB, R
  • David Rohm RF: 2-2, 2B (8), BB
  • Jason Hursh: 7IP, 7H, 3ER, 0BB, 4K
  • Ryne Harper: 2IP, 2H, 0ER, 0BB, 4K
It took Jason Hursh only 85 pitches to get through seven innings, but the three runs surrendered were too much to overcome Monday at Trustmark Park. The 22-year-old was able to strikeout four, issuing no fee passes for the second time all season. Ryne Harper put together an impressive two innings, striking out four, raising his strikeout-to-walk to 36:12 in 22 innings of work. The offense was pretty 'blah' aside from Emerson Landoni who reached three times, once via walk and twice after being hit by a pitch. Right fielder David Rohm also reached three times on the night, drawing only his fourth walk of the season.

In somewhat unrelated yet related news, old friend Arodys Vizcaino threw a scoreless frame for Tennessee. The righty, still only 23-years-old, has thrown 13 innings for the Cubs organization this season, his first game action since 2013 2012 2011 with Atlanta. It's great to see a once highly touted Braves prospect back on the hill.
