Gwinnett Braves at Syracuse Chiefs: Canceled, rain

The Chiefs and Braves were rained out due to wet weather in New York. The game will not be made up, as the two teams will not play again in the 2014 season.

Gwinnett now heads to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for a series beginning tonight.

Mississippi Braves: 6 vs. Pensacola Blue Wahoos: 2

  • Mycal Jones, RF: 2-4, R, BB, K, .260
  • Kyle Wren, CF: 0-4, R, BB, K, .270
  • Kyle Kubitza, 3B: 1-4, R, HR (5), 3 RBI (44), 2 K, .297
  • Daniel Castro, SS: 2-4, R, 2B (6), .326
  • Braeden Schlehuber, C: 2-4, 2 R, RBI (29), SB (2), .216
  • Williams Pérez (W): 6 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, BB, 3 K, 9:4 GO:FO, 3.48 ERA
  • Ryne Harper: 2 IP, 2 H, 3 K, 2:1 GO:FO, 2.97 ERA
The M-Braves knocked off the Blue Wahoos by a 6-2 final last night. Williams Pérez started on the mound for the Braves and had a typically strong start, allowing only two runs on seven hits and a walk in six innings. I saw Pérez last week, and the sinkerballer sat in the low-90's with good feel for his sinker, which he used to induce plenty of ground balls, and this looks to be what happened last night. He doesn't have the secondary pitches to miss many bats, but he's gotten the job done admirably at AA this season.  Ryne Harper pitched two scoreless innings in relief, and John Cornely was perfect in the final frame. The biggest blast for Mississippi offensively last night was Kyle Kubitza's three-run homer, his fifth long ball of the season. Myke Jones had a good night at the top of the order with a pair of singles and a walk. Daniel Castro and Braeden Schlehuber also chipped in with two-hit games of their own. Kyle Wren was held hitless in five trips, although he did walk once, and José Peraza had the night off. Ryan Weber will oppose Robert Stephenson at Trustmark Park tonight.

Lynchburg Hillcats: off-day

The Hillcats had Monday off after returning home from Frederick. They'll begin a series against the Wilmington Blue Rocks tonight with Daniel Watts on the bump.

Rome Braves: 5 vs. West Virginia Power: 1

  • Johan Camargo, SS: 2-3, R, RBI (34), BB, E (28), .275
  • Victor Caratini, C: 1-4, R, .282
  • Jacob Schrader, DH: 1-4, R, 2B (13), RBI (40), .291
  • Tanner Krietemeier, 1B: 2-4, R, 2 RBI (12), .264
  • Ross Wilson, 2B: 2-4, RBI (30), .261
  • Matt Marksberry (W): 7 IP, 3 H, R (0 ER), 2 BB, 5 K, 9:6 GO:FO, 3.43 ERA
  • Caleb Dirks: 2 IP, 2 BB, K, 3:2 GO:FO, 2.25 ERA
Rome knocked out the Power at State Mutual Stadium last night by a 5-1 score. Matt Marksberry made the start on the bump for the Braves and had a great outing, allowing three hits and a pair of walks in seven innings, striking out five. Only one run crossed the plate against Marksberry, and it was unearned due to a Johan Camargo error. Caleb Dirks walked a pair of hitters in his two-inning outing, but didn't allow a hit. Johan Camargo had a nice day offensively despite his error, singling twice and walking in four tries. Ethan also said that he showed drool-worthy arm strength in fielding practice, so there's that too. Tanner Krietemeier and Ross Wilson also had two-hit games, and Victor Caratini singled once and scored a run as well. Steve Janas will pitch for Rome tonight in their series finale against West Virginia before an off-day.

Danville Braves: 7 vs. Kingsport Mets: 1

  • Joseph Daris, CF: 1-3, 2 R, BB, SB (6), .268
  • Ozhaino Albies, SS: 0-2, R, 2 BB, E (2), .400
  • Jordan Edgerton, 3B: 1-3, R, RBI (31), BB, .282
  • Matt Tellor, 1B: 2-4, R, HR (1), 3 RBI (5), .364
  • Omar Obregón, 2B: 1-3, R, RBI (8), K, SB (2), .303
  • Andrew Waszak (W): 7 IP, 3 H, ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 8:5 GO:FO, 4.25 ERA
  • Tyler Vail: IP, K, 1:0 GO:FO, 0.00 ERA

Danville beat the K-Mets by a 7-1 score last night. Andrew Waszak had a good start on the mound, pitching seven strong innings and allowing three hits and three walks, allowing only one run. He struck out six batters, and didn't allow any extra base hits. Tyler Vail and Michael Flores each pitched one scoreless inning in relief. Matt Tellor hit his first professional home run, a solo shot in the fourth inning. He also added a single and drove in three runs. Joseph Daris singled and walk at the top of the lineup, and Ozhaino Albies also reached twice on walks despite not picking up a hit. He also committed a fielding error in the game. Jordan Edgerton also drove in a run, singled, and walked. Max Povse will pitch against the Mets as the two teams face again in Danville tonight.

GCL Braves: 9 vs. GCL Tigers: 8

  • Ray-Patrick Didder, SS: 1-4, R, BB, 2 K, .237
  • Luis Monasterio, 3B: 1-4, R, RBI (3), BB, K, .364
  • Luke Dykstra, 2B: 2-4, RBI (17), BB, CS (1), .354
  • Braxton Davidson, LF: 1-4, R, RBI (2), BB, 2 K, .236
  • José Morel, RF: 3-4, 3 R, 2 2B (3), BB, K, .343
  • Jordany Santana: 5 IP, 6 H, 6 ER, 2 BB, K, 8:5 GO:FO, 5.97 ERA
  • Aldo Silva: IP, BB, 2 K, 0:1 GO:FO, 2.16 ERA
  • Luis Gamez: IP, BB, 2:0 GO:FO, 4.70 ERA
The GCL Braves won a slugfest against the Tigers yesterday afternoon. Jordany Santana got the start on the mound and struggled, as he was hit around for six runs in only five innings of work, allowing six hits and a pair of walks. After Caleb Beech allowed a pair of runs in a one-inning relief appearance, Aldo Silva, Luis Gamez, and Abraham Espinosa all pitched a shutout inning to keep the Tigers at bay. The team didn't have any problems with scoring runs yesterday, as they plated nine as a team. Luke Dykstra had a two-single game to go with a walk in 5 PAs, although he was caught stealing for the first time. José Morel had a big day, with three hits and a walk, including a pair of doubles. Braxton Davidson reached twice in five PAs, singling and drawing a walk. The Braves and Tigers will play again this afternoon.
