Norfolk Tides 4, Gwinnett Braves 5

  • Tyler Pastornicky 2B: 1-4
  • Joey Terdoslavich DH: 2-3, BB, R
  • Christian Bethancourt C: 2-4, HR (6), 2B (15), R
  • Ozzie Martinez SS: 3-3, 2B (9), BB, 3R
  • Joe Leonard 1B: 2-3, 2B (3), BB
  • Cody Martin: 6IP, 7H, 4ER, 3BB, 6K
  • Carlos Fisher: 2IP, H, 0ER, BB, 2K
  • Chasen Shreve: IP, H, 0ER, 0BB, 3K
The G-Braves found themselves in a 4-0 hole before scoring five unanswered runs to take the win Thursday. It wasn't Cody Martin's finest outing, allowing four runs over six innings, but he did manage to whiff six. The bullpen did the job from there, including Chasen Shreve who stuck out the side for his first save with Gwinnett. Christian Bethancourt made noise on offense with a YABO and a double, starting behind the plate (gunned down two runners), snapping a three game hitless skid. Ozzie Martinez reached all four times at the plate while coming around to score three of the five runs.

Mississippi Braves 6, Jacksonville Suns 2 - Game 1 (F/7)

  • Jose Peraza 2B: 2-4, 2B (7), SB (25)
  • Kyle Wren CF: 2-4, R
  • Kyle Kubitza 3B: 3-4, 2B (26), R
  • Cedric Hunter LF: 2-3, BB, R
  • Rich Poythress 1B: 2-4, HR (6), R
  • Mycal Jones RF: 2-4

Mississippi Braves 3, Jacksonville 2 - Game 2 (F/8)

  • Kyle Kubitza 3B: 0-3
  • Cedric Hunter LF: 1-4, 2B (25), R
  • Barrett Klienknecht 2B-1B: 3-3, HR (5), R
  • Williams Perez: 5IP, 4H, 2ER, BB, 4K
  • JR Graham: IP, 2H, 0ER, BB, 0K
  • Ryan Kelley: 2IP, H, 0ER, BB, 2K
Mississippi came away on the positive side of both games, outscoring Jacksonville 9-4 on the day. Kyle Kubitza and Jose Peraza had themselves a game one, each ripping a double and scoring from the top of the order. Jose Peraza also stole a base, but left the game early and didn't play in the second game for precautionary reasons. The rest of the offense was in full force raking out 16 hits, including multi-hit games from seven players in the shortened contest.

In game two, Williams Perez got the start, giving up two runs over five innings. JR Graham same on again to pitch in relief, but report from sources at the game were less than positive. It continues to be a disappointing season for the highly touted prospect along with many of the other Braves arms. Barrett Klienknecht was the star on offense going 3-3 with hit fifth home run of the season. Cedric Hunter had the only other XBH, ripping his 25th double of the season.

The lack of punch outs left a little to be desired, but overall he reports say he threw well. The offense lacked punch ager the first inning which it scored the only two runs of the game. Jose Martinez ripped two hits and scored one of two Hillcats runs. He is now hitting .333 for Lynchburg this season.

Connor Oliver collected the only multi-hit game, going for his 18th double and scoring two of the three runs. Carlos Franco had the only other XBH and run coming from the DH spot. Matt Marksberry threw six scoreless innings, somehow escaping around four walks. Pete Perez picked hip a four out save, his sixth of the season.

Danville Braves 0, Elizabethton Twins 12

  • Codey McElroy 3B: 1-3
  • Tanner Murphy C: 1-3
  • Omar Obregon 2B:1-4
  • Fernelys Sanchez RF: 1-3
  • Andrew Waszak: 4IP, 12H, 7ER, BB, 5K
  • Michael Flores: 2IP, 3H, 2ER, 0BB, 2K

It was an absolute blood bath at Joe O'Brien field Thursday in front of 450 fans. Danville was blanked 12-0 while getting outhit 21-5. Andrew Waszak got the start and allowed seven runs on 12 hits, managing to strikeout five to one walk. The rest of the staff was nothing to write home about either giving up five runs over four innings. The offense was also no bueno at the plate, singling five times and walking twice. That's enough about this one.

GCL Braves 1, GCL Pirates 10

  • Jared Cruz 2B: 1-3
  • Braxton Davidson LF: 0-2, 2BB
  • Alejandro Flores C: 2-3, HR (1), R
  • Francisco Gonzalez: 4.1IP, 7H, 2ER, 2BB, 4K
  • Rafael Rodriguez: 0.2IP, H, 0ER, BB, K
  • Caleb Beech: 2IP, 5H, 3ER, BB, 0K
The GCL team once had a one run lead in this one, but it didn't last long as the Pirates came back to score 10 unanswered over the final six innings. Poor pitching and defense was the culprit, alloying 15 hits, six walks and three errors. Francisco Gonzalez got the start, going 4.1 innings giving up five runs (only two earned). The offense was silent aside from Alejandro Flores who collected two of the three hits on the day, including his first homer of the season. Braxton Davidson was one of two other players to reach, walking twice.
