Durham Bulls 1, Gwinnett Braves 0

  • Todd Cunningham CF: 1-3, BB, SB (13)
  • Evan Gattis: 0-2
  • Joey Terdoslavich 1B: 1-2, 2BB
  • Kaneoka Texeira: 6IP, 3H, 0ER, 3BB, 4K
  • Carlos Fisher: IP, H, 0ER, 0BB, 2K
  • Terry Doyle: IP, 0H, 0ER, 0BB, 3K
Gwinnett was shutout for the second night in a row, falling 1-0. It was an unfortunate night for the staff as they combined to throw nine innings of four hit ball, allowing one unearned run, while striking out 11. It's pretty had to lose while putting up that line, but the Braves did it. With only three hits to speak of, there was not much of anything to speak of. Joey Terdoslavich did reach three times in the cleanup spot. Evan Gattis went 0-2, but he is hopeful return to Atlanta Monday.

Kyle Kubitza was again the star on offense collecting two hits, raising his average back to the .308 mark. Williams Perez was a mess on the mound, allowing seven earned within the first 2+ innings. Jorge Reyes came in and put out the flames, striking out four over his 2+ innings of work.

    Absolute wild one at Appalachian Power Park Friday night - one for the ages (if you're a Power fan). Down 8-2 in the 6th, West Virginia rallied to score one, two, one, and three runs, capping a walk off win against Matt Kimbrel. Battling for the worst record in the league, Rome continued to maintain their ground. The three hitters in the lineup combined for five hits, two walks and six runs scored. Ross Wilson drove in three of those runs and collected his 5th double of the season at A-ball.

    • Jordan Edgerton 3B: 1-4, R
    • Matt Tellor DH: 2-4, R

    • Bradley Roney: 2IP, H, 0ER, BB, 4K
    Danville rallied late scoring three runs in the 8th, fighting off the Pirates to a 7-5 victory. Daniel Cordero got worked in 3+ innings, allowing four earned on six hits.

    GCL Phillies 2, GCL Braves 4

    • Ozhaino Albies SS: 0-4
    • Ray-Patrick Didder DH: 2-4
    • Braxton Davidson LF: 0-2
    • Erson Mendez RF-LF: 2-3
    • Ian Thomas: 3IP, 3H, ER, 0BB, 4K
    • Abraham Espinosa: 1.2IP, 2H, 0ER, 0BB, K

    Ian Thomas was on the bump again for the GCL squad, throwing three innings of one run ball. He did allow a home run, but a 4:0 strikeout-to-walk is a good sign. The rest of the 'pen only allowing one run in the final six innings. Despite only six hits, the offense sequenced them right, plating three runs. The lineup only managed six singles, but five walks, including two from Dylan Manwaring, was enough to grab a Friday afternoon W.
