Gwinnett Braves 0, Pawtucket Red Sox 3

  • Jose Constanza LF: 1-4
  • Christian Bethancourt C: 0-4
  • Joey Terdoslavich 1B: 1-4, 2B (14)
  • Tommy La Stella 2B
  • Phil Gosselin 2B: 1-4, 2B (14)
  • Edward Salcedo 3B: 0-1, 2BB
  • Yunesky Maya: 6IP, 5H, 0ER, 0BB, 7K
  • Kameron Loe: 0.1IP, 3H, 3ER, 0BB, K
  • Ryan Buchter: 1.2IP, 0H, 0ER, BB, K
Gwinnett's offense was punchless in the absence of Tommy La Stella (direct correlation). All they could do was muster up three hits, which included doubles from Joey Terdoslavich and Phil Gosselin, their 14th each. Aside from Edward Salcedo drawing two walks, they were shut down most of the night. Starter Yunesky Maya held his own, throwing five shutout innings, striking out seven. However, Kameron Loe made his first appearance for the G-Braves, recording one out... but not before giving up three runs. Good to see him back in form. They'll finish up the four game set with Pawtucket tomorrow at 7.

Mississippi played their second extra inning affair, this time going 13, winning on a throwing error by the Pensacola second baseman Brodie Greene. The star on offense was Mycal Jones who collected three hits. The center fielder tagged his 8th double of the season and is putting together a rather impressive .322/.432/.470 line this season. The converted outfielder, who turns 27 today, was a former fourth round pick back in 2009 and is looking to make a final push up the minor league ladder. JR Graham has a nice outing on the mound, only giving up two runs on two hits in 5.1 innings. The bullpen came through again in the final frames allowing Mississippi to pick up their second extra inning win in as many days.

Frederick Keys 4, Lynchburg Hillcats 5

  • Jose Peraza 2B: 1-4
  • Kyle Wren CF: 1-5
  • Levi Hyams 1B: 2-4, R
  • Will Skinner RF: 1-3, HR (4), 2R
  • Tyler Tewell C: 2-4, HR (2), R
  • David Nick DH: 2-4
  • Daniel Castro SS: 1-4, R
  • Lucas Sims: 6IP, 6H, 4ER, 2BB, 3K
  • Zach Jadofsky: 4IP, 0H, 0ER, 0BB, 3K
Lycnhburg also needed extras, but was able to finish it off in the 10th, also by a 5-4 final. The Hillcats only needed two pitchers to complete the contest, starting with top prospect Lucas Sims. The rightly was touched up again, and is now sporting a 4.23 ERA after 11 starts. It also should be noted that Sims hit a batter and threw a wild pitch, both things happening at too frequent of an occurrence lately. Zach Jadofsky on the other hand was brilliant, going four perfect innings. The 6'3" righty was able to induce seven ground balls to go along with his three strikeouts. The main power sources on offense came from the bats of Will Skinner and Tyler Tewell, who each went deep with a runner on. Josh Elander drove in Daniel Castro, who reached on an error in the, giving Lynchburg the win in the 10th.

West Virginia Power 11, Rome Braves 6

  • Connor Lien CF:1-5
  • Johan Camargo SS: 5-5, 3B (2), 2B (4), 2R
  • Victor Reyes RF: 0-4, BB
  • Carlos Franco DH: 2-5, HR (3), 2R
  • Seth Moranda 2B: 1-5
  • Ronald Luna 3B: 3-4, R
  • Daniel Watts: 3IP, H, ER, BB, 3K
  • AJ Holland: 2.1IP, 3H, 3ER, BB, K
  • Colby Holmes 1.2IP, H, 6R, 0ER, 0BB, K

Another ugly one from Rome. A rather interesting line from Colby Homes too, who gave up six runs, yet none managed to be earned. Seth Moranda had a nightmare game in the field, recording two throwing errors and missing a catch at second base. Ronald Luna also had two fielding errors which contributed to the six unearned runs. Rome's pitching has been, to put it quite frank, terrible, totaling a team ERA of 5.57 and giving up 45 more runs than the next closest Sally League opponent. On the bright side, Johan Camargo had a five hit game, falling a home run shy of the cycle. Below are a couple comments from assistant hitting coach Nestor Perez about Camargo's day at the plate,

"We were very happy, we've been working had all season like he said, he was struggling in April last month, he was uncomfortable at the plate," Perez added. "It's good to see, the hard work with him every day and all the things, to see him now getting better, he goes 5-for-5 tonight, I think he's happy and confident, he knows he can do it."

"He's one of the top prospects, and one of the reasons is because of how he plays short," Perez said. "He's a natural shortstop, he can play the position, he looks very comfortable, he plays with high energy, he's solid and he's got a great future in this position."
