Matt "Mad Max" Wilser (hopefully this catches since the movie just came out and I called him Max his last start)...what a performance! Almost had the complete game shut, but Snitker pulled Wisler in the ninth after he walked Francisco Lindor. The only Clipper that had Wisler's number tonight was James Ramsey who went 2-3 with two singles. Wisler corralled seven strikeouts, which tied his season high. This was the longest outing he had this season by going 8.1 innings while tossing 112 pitches with 80 being strikes. His most comparable start came on May 10 where Wisler went 8 innings with 90 pitches while allowing one run on five hits. He continues to improve against batters as his walk to strikeout ratio is now 11 to 46. He lowered his ERA (3.58), opponent batting average(.250), and WHIP (1.17) after todays start. David Carpenter came to shut down the next two batters by getting the first to fly out and striking out the last batter.
Mycal Jones led the braves offense with two singles, and Eury Perez connected with a hit as well and tallying his 25th stolen base on the season.

The Mudcats suffered a 12 game losing streak that came to an end last night after the team defeated Myrtle Beach, but Carolina started a new streak as they extend their winning ways to two games. The Mudcat offense exploded in the first half of the game as the scored all of their runs in the first five innings. The Mudcats totaled 11 hits with 6 coming from Sal Giardina, Joseph Odom, and Johan Camargo. However, the pitching really shut down the Blue Rocks as Andrew Waszak picked up the win by going 6.1 innings. He allowed five hits without a run to score while striking out three. This was Waszak's longest outing of the season and fourth game starting. In his first three starts he allowed at least two runs. Mauricio Cabrera came out with a good outing. It was his first outing in the past eight games that he did not allow at least one walk. From a long ball day, the Mudcats launched two homers from Jacob Schrader and Joseph Odom. Each of the players ended with three RBIs in the game.

TC's POW, Joseph Daris, kept his honors alive today as he went 4-5 with 4 singles in the two game split between the Braves and the Crawdads. The offense was very limited in the first game as the team connected with only five base hits. The other three hits came from Ozhaino Albies, Tanner Krietemeier, and Connor Oliver. All the offense from both teams came in the fifth inning. However, Carlos Salazar let the Rome lead slip away as he went one inning with four hits and four runs to score (only one was earned).
The Braves came out a different team as the team roped 10 hits in the seven inning game. Braxton Davidson, Jordan Edgerton, and Daris each connected with a pair of hits. The Braves had three of their hits by means of doubles. Davidson led the team in runs scored as he scored two runs. He has two multi hit games in his last 12 games, but in that span, he had at least one hit in 8 of those games. The team showed some patience at the plate as the walked seven times while only striking out five times.
Zach Quintana tossed his third start of the season as he just allowed one hit in four innings of work. Kinman came in for the save to get his 7th of the season out of 9 opportunities. Kinman is now tied for 3rd in saves in the SAL.
