Gwinnett Braves 10, Charlotte Knights 12

  • Todd Cunningham CF: 4-5, HR (10), 2 2B (24,25), R
  • Elmer Reyes SS: 1-5, HR (2), R
  • Sean Kazmar 3B: 2-4, BB, 2R
  • Steven Lerud C: 3-5, HR (4), R
  • Joe Leonard 1B: 2-5, HR (1), 2R
  • Hector Daniel Rodriguez: 2IP, 7H, 5ER, 2BB, 3K
  • Zach Stewart: 2IP, 6H, 5ER, 2BB, 3K
It was a wild one in the Queen City last night as both teams combined to plate 22 runs. BB&T Park, notedly hated by triple-A pitchers, was in full force Wednesday as both teams combined to hit six homers. The G-Braves hit four of those, but couldn't climb out of a 10-3 hole. Todd Cunningham had a night to remember, smacking a home run, ripping two doubles and a single, driving in three runs in the three spot. The bottom of the lineup did its job, with the bottom three spots going 7-14 with five runs scored and two home runs. Tough to lose when you reach base 20 times and score 10 runs, but its tough to win when you allow 24 base runners and give up 12 runs.

Mississippi Braves 1, Jacksonville Suns 0

  • Jose Peraza 2B: 0-4
  • Kyle Wren CF: 0-4
  • Mycal Jones RF: 2-4, 2B (20)
  • Jason Hursh: 5.1IP, H, 0ER, 2BB, 5K
  • Brandon Cunniff: 2IP, H, 0ER, 0BB, 2K
After a 2:45 hour rain delay, the M-Braves pushed across a run late as Braeden Schlehuber pushed across Mycal Jones who doubled earlier in the inning. The lineup only collected five hits, but it was more than enough as the staff help the Suns to only two. The shutout was started by Jason Hursh who fired five innings of one hit baseball. While the overall profile leaves much to be desired as a starter, it was good to see him put up a clean line.
