After Sugar Ray Marimon was sent to Gwinnett, he has shown a different side of his pitching than displayed in Atlanta. He has gone 19 innings with 8 hits and one run scored. He has struck out 10 and only walked four Opponents have only hit 0.131 against him. Maybe, Sugar Ray needed to calm his nerves for his first MLB season by going to Gwinnett to help rebound. Eury is riding a four game hit streak with three of them being multi-hit games. Jose Peraza is competing as well by extending his hit streak to six games. Also extending their hitting streaks, Adonis Garcia tallied a hit today to move to a seven game hitting streak. The Braves scored in four innings with just one run in three of the innings.
