  • Kaneoka Texeira: 6.1IP, 3H, ER, 3BB, 3K
  • Terry Doyle: IP, H, 0ER, 0BB, 0K
An implosion in the second inning was too much for Gwinnett to overcome, losing the Sunday set to Syracuse 6-1. Todd Cunningham stayed hot at the plate, going 2-3 with a double and a walk. It was his 15th double of the season. Jose Constanza had the only other multi-hit game, weaseling his way on with two singles. In the field, Edward Salcedo gunned out two men, one at home and one at second, getting a hold of the "arm" part of right field. The rest of his defense is still in question at his new home. Hector Daniel Rodriguez only lasted 38 pitches over 1.2 innings. Kaneoka Texeira came on in relief and went six strong, allowing only one earned.

Mississippi was back at it Sunday, collecting 13 hits on their way to a 6-3 win. Five players went for 2+ hits, one of which was David Rohm, who also reached twice via walk. Kyle Wren reached three times, stealing his fourth base at the doubla-A level (also caught for the first time). Kyle Kubitza too swiped a bag, his 16th, but committed a throwing error, his 20th. Williams Perez wasn't his sharpest, allowing four walks over 4.2, striking out two. He limited the damage to two runs, enough to allow the bullpen to do its job.

Lucas Sims had is second start this week, and was better, but still managed to struggle. The righty gave up four earned over 6.2, walking three and striking out six. He again showed his control issues, throwing a wild pitch and hitting a batter. Kevin Ahrens was the driving force on offense, blasting a home run and driving two singles. Will Skinner continued his doubles streak, knocking his 26th of the season. Right fielder Blake Brown continues to hit well since be promoted to the high-A level, albeit only a weeks worth of games.

    Danville Braves 4, Princeton Rays 6

    • Sean Goodfrey CF: 2-5
    • Mike Dodig DH: 1-4, HR (1), BB, R
    • Tanner Murpht C: 2-3, 2BB
    • Codel McEloy SS: 2-3
    • Andrew Waszak: 7IP, 5H, ER, BB, 4K
    • Caleb Dirks: 0.2IP, 0ER, BB, 3K

    Despite out hitting the opposition 12-7, the D-Braves gave up six runs in the 8th to fall 6-4. The meltdown was compounded by an error by Cody McElroy, allowing only ONE of the six runs to be earned. Ouch. The offense continued to rake, headed by outfielder Sean Godfrey whose two singles, drove his average to .390 of the season. Catcher Tanner Murphy also had two singles and reached twice via walk. Hopefully this will be a spark to an otherwise slow season at the plate for the 19-year-old. Mike Dodig cranked his first homer of the season in the fourth with the bases empty.
