Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 12, Gwinnett Braves 4

  • Edward Salcedo, RF: 2-4, HR(8), 2 K, .205
  • Elmer Reyes, SS: 2-5, K, .275
  • Todd Cunningham, CF: 1-5, HR(5), OF Assist(home), K, .276
  • Kanekoa Texeira, SP: 2.2 IP, 8 H, 8 R, 2 BB, 1 K, 6.00 ERA

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 3, Gwinnett Braves 1 (7 innings)

  • Elmer Reyes, SS: 2-3, 2B(5), .289
  • Phil Gosselin, 2B: 1-3, 2B(29), .348
  • Edward Salcedo, RF: 1-3, E(22), K, .206
  • Todd Cunningham, CF: 1-3, .277
  • Terry Doyle, SP: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R(1 ER), 4 BB, 1 K, 3.13 ERA
Gwinnett played two yesterday after being rained out the day before. Unfortunately, the RailRiders stomped them in both games. The starting pitching was terrible as Kanekoa Texeira and Terry Doyle were both far from sharp. Edward Salcedo had a pair of hits, including a homer in the first game, but committed his 22nd throwing error in the nightcap. Elmer Reyes had two hits in each game, boosting his average up to .289. Todd Cunningham also collected his 5th homer of the year.

Mississippi Braves 2, Tennessee Smokies 4

  • Jose Peraza, 2B: 1-4, SB(17), 2 K, .370
  • Kyle Wren, CF: 1-4, PO(1), K, .299
  • Cedric Hunter, LF: 1-3, BB, .288
  • Daniel Castro, SS: 1-3, BB, .313
  • Ryan Weber, SP: 5.1 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 0 BB, 3 K, 4.54 ERA
  • John Cornely, RP: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 2.93 ERA
The Smokies knocked off Mississippi last night, as the M-Braves could only manage 6 hits in the contest. Kyle Wren and Jose Peraza each had one apiece. Peraza swiped #17 after his single, while Wren was picked off for the first time in AA. Cedric Hunter and Daniel Castro each posted 1-3 evenings with a walk. Ryan Weber was quite hittable though, allowing 4 runs on 8 hits in a little over 5 innings, a margin that would prove too big to overcome for Mississippi.

Salem Red Sox 0, Lynchburg Hillcats 5

  • Jose Martinez, DH: 2-4, HR(3), .354
  • Blake Brown, RF: 1-3, BB, .268
  • Daniel Carroll, LF: 1-3, 2B(9), BB, .202
  • Jarrett Miller, SP: 7.2 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K, 3.76 ERA
  • David Peterson, RP: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 5.54 ERA
After being shut out two nights ago by Salem, Lynchburg returned the favor last night. Jarrett Miller was in control all night, pitching into the 8th inning while only allowing 4 hits, only one of which went for extra bases. He also posted 6 strikeouts. David Peterson wrapped up the game by getting the last four outs, all via strikeout. On offense, Jose Martinez carried the Hillcats with a homer and an RBI single.

Delmarva Shorebirds 9, Rome Braves 4

  • Johan Camargo, SS: 2-4, 2B(14), .262
  • Victor Caratini, C: 1-3, 2B(17), BB, .280
  • Ross Wilson, 2B: 1-3, 3B(3), .265
  • Connor Lien, CF: 1-4, 2B(12), .260
  • Steve Janas, SP: 5.2 IP, 10 H, 4 R(2 ER), 0 BB, 10 K, 5.53 ERA
What a weird start for Steve Janas. The Kennesaw State product was hit hard, allowing 10 base hits in 5.2 innings, but he also posted a ridiculous 10:0 K:BB ratio. Overall, I'd call that a pretty good day. Johan Camargo was the only R-Brave to notch a multi-hit game, as he went 2-4 with a double. Victor Caratini kept up his good work, walking and doubling in 4 plate appearances.

Danville Braves 7, Burlington Royals 2

  • Joseph Daris, CF: 3-5, SB(4), .296
  • Mike Dodig, DH: 2-4, 2B(3), .262
  • Tanner Murphy, C: 1-5, 2B(7), .231
  • Ozhaino Albies, SS: 2-3, 2B(2), SB(1), BB, .400
  • Max Povse, SP: 4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 5 K, 7.30 ERA
Danville smacked the B-Royals last night, winning 7-2 behind Joseph Daris and Ozhaino Albies, who each reached base 3 times. Daris smacked three singles and added a steal, while Albies walked, singled, doubled, and stole his first base with Danville. Max Povse turned in a nice little start, allowing 4 hits across 4 innings while striking out 5. This year's third rounder has notched 12 strikeouts in 12 professional innings so far while posting a 3:2 groundout:flyout ratio. Not too shabby at all.

GCL Astros 2, GCL Braves 9

  • Luke Dykstra, SS: 3-5, 3 2B(6,7,8), .328
  • Braxton Davidson, LF: 2-4, 2 2B(6,7), .246
  • Erison Mendez, CF: 3-5, 2B(2), .266
  • Jose Morel, RF: 2-4,.269
  • Jacob Webb, SP: 4 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 2.63
It was a banner day for the GCL Braves' offense yesterday as they banged out a whopping 17 hits en route to a 9-2 drubbing of the Astros' GCL affiliate. Luke Dykstra led the way with three doubles, giving him 8 on the year and raising his average all the way up to .328. Braxton Davidson notched another multi-hit game as well with two doubles of his own; it appears Atlanta's first rounder may be breaking out of his early-season funk. Backup center fielder Erison Mendez got in on the fun as well, posting three hits including his 2nd double of the year.
