Gwinnett Braves 2, Durham Bulls 4

  • Jose Constanza LF: 2-4, CS (10)
  • Todd Cunningham CF: 0-2, BB, HBP, R, E (3)
  • Christian Bethancourt C: 1-4, R
  • Sean Kazmar: 3B: 2-3, 2B (17), BB
  • Edward Salcedo RF: 0-3
  • Terry Doyle: 7.2IP, 7H, 3ER, 0BB, 7K
It's not everyday you see Terry Doyle pitch into the 8th inning with seven strikeouts and zero walks. He did just that last night, but allowed four runs, as the Rays executed with runners in scoring position to take a 4-1 win. There was not much to speak of on offense, as the team only went for five hits, including the 17th double of the season for Sean Kazmar. Jose Constanza had the only other multi-hit game for the G-Braves.

Birmingham Barons 3, Mississippi Braves 8

  • Kyle Wren CF: 1-4, BB, R
  • Gustavo Nunez 2B: 2-5
  • Seth Loman DH: 3-5, 2B (20)
  • Barrett Kleinknecht 3B: 1-3, 2B (18), R
  • Mycal Jones RF-LF: 2-4, R, OF assist
  • Joe Gardner: 7IP, 3H, ER, 0BB, 4K
  • JR Graham: IP, 0H, 0ER, 0BB, K

Mississippi jumped out to an 8-0 lead and never looked back, beating Birmingham 8-3. Every starter reached base safely, led by Seth Loman who ripped out three hits including his 20th double of the season. Joe Gardner went seven strong innings only allowing three hits while striking out four. The 26-year-old was making his second start for Mississippi, only allowing one run over a 12 inning stretch. He was formerly a 3rd round pick by the Indians in 2009.

Myrtle Beach 10, Lynchburg Hillcats 4

  • Sean Godfrey CF: 1-4
  • Jose Martinez LF: 2-3, 2B (13), R
  • Levi Hyams 1B: 1-4, R
  • Johan Camargo SS: 2-4, HR (1), R
  • Navery Moore: 2.1IP, 3H, 0ER, BB, 5K
  • Mauricio Cabrera: IP, 2H, 2ER, 0BB, 2K

Wes Parsons was roughed up and couldn't make it out of the 4th, allowing six earned runs to the Pelicans lineup. Parsons allowed eight runs overall on five hits, walks and striking out three. The 21-year-old has continued his less than stellar year, even though his peripherals suggest he may be getting a bit unlucky in regards to his 5.20 ERA. Navery Moore cleaned up the mess, throwing a scoreless 2.1 innings, striking out five. Mauricio Cabrera gave up two runs on two hits, including a home run to Ryan Cordell. A bright spot at the plate was 20-year-old Johan Camargo who hit his first home run of the 2014 season.

Danville Braves 1, Princeton Rays 4

  • Ozahino Albies SS: 1-4, BB
  • Omar Obregon 2B: 2-5
  • Tanner Murphy C: 2-4
  • Braxton Davidson LF: 0-4
  • Jose Morel RF: 2-4, 2B (1), R, OF assist
  • Trevor Sprowl DH: 2-4
  • Alec Grosser: 5IP, 7H, 3ER, 2BB, 5K
  • Tyler Vail: 2IP, 2H, ER, 0BB, 2K
Despite outhitting the Rays, Danville lost 4-1 as they went 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position. Ozahino Albies continued his stellar work at the plate, upping his OBP to .435 in 34 games at Danville. Again, Albies is only 17-year-old, having a breakout season in rookie ball. He was one of five players to record a multi-hit game, including Jose Morel who doubled and recorded an OF assist from right field. Alec Grosser didn't have his finest stuff, allowing three runs on seven hits, striking out five, continuing his near perfect K/IP rate on the season.

GCL Braves 3, GCL Yankees2 2

  • Stephen Gaylor CF: 2-4, 3B (1)
  • Alejandro Flores C: 1-4, HR (4), R
  • Ray-Patrick Didder SS: 1-4
  • Dylan Manwaring 3B: 2-3, R
  • Francisco Gonzalez: 5IP, 2H, ER, 2BB, K
  • Jared Dettmann: 2IP, 0H, 0ER, 0BB, 0K
  • Mitchell Ossnowitz: 1.1IP, 2H, ER, 0BB, K
The Braves held off the Yankees2 squad in the 9th to take a 3-2 win Monday. Alejandro Flores provided the pop, smacking a home run in the 8th to give the Braves a much needed insurance run. Stephen Gaylor ripped a triple in the leadoff spot. While old for the level, the speedy center fielder has impressed in limited action after being signed earlier in the month. 19-year-old Francisco Gonzalez made his 7th start of the season, throwing five innings of two hit ball. Mitchell Osnowitz recorded the four out save, escaping the ninth after allowing the Yankees2 to pull within a run.
