(13-15) Gwinnett Braves 3, (9-20) Lehigh Valley IronPigs 4

  • Adonis Garcia, 3B: 2-4, 2 1B, R, .362
  • Cedric Hunter, LF: 2-4, 2B, RBI, R, .261
  • Todd Cunningham, CF: 1-4, 2B, R, SO, .293
  • Jose Peraza, 2B: 0-4, 0 SO, 0 BB, .300
  • Manny Banuelos, SP: 6 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 6 SO, 3.06 ERA
  • John Cornely, RP: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 SO, 1.29 ERA
The IronPigs walked off to defeat Gwinnett. Lehigh Valley led the entire game until the top of the ninth where the Braves scored three runs. Cedric Hunter scored the first run off his single to right. The second run scored on a wild pitch by the IronPigs, and the last run was tacked on by a sacrifice fly by Daniel Castro. However, a one run lead for Gwinnett was not enough when Brian Bogusevic doubled to center field and plated the tying and game winning runs. The Braves had three batters contribute at least one hit, but \the team as a whole only struck out three times and walked three times. Manny Banuelos was pinned with a no decision after being taken out after the sixth inning. Adonis Garcia extends his hitting streak to eight games with four being multi-hit games.

(13-13) Mississippi Braves 4, (17-11) Biloxi Shuckers 2
  • Mallex Smith, CF: 2-4, 2 1B, 2 RBI, R, .333
  • Emerson Landoni, SS: 2-3, 2 1B, BB, .255
  • Chris O'Dowd, C: 1-3, 1B, RBI, R, BB, .432
  • Rio Ruiz, 3B: 0-4, 0 BB, 0 SO, .202
  • Jake Brigham (3-2), SP: 6.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 7 SO, 4.55 ERA
  • Ryan Kelly, RP: 1 IP, SV (7), 0 SO, 0.71 ERA
Mississippi jumped out on board first. Mallex Smith started the game with a base knock to center. After a throwing error and a double play, Chris O'Dowd roped a single to right field to plate Smith from third. The Braves added insurance in the fourth inning with three runs. KD Kang scored O'Dowd on a ground out. Corbin Joseph later singled to put "ducks on the pond". Then Smith came in the clutch by connecting with another single to score David Rohm and Joseph. The Shuckers picked up a pair of runs in the seventh inning but couldn't manufacture more runs to tie or gain the lead. Smith moved to a four game hit streak with three being multi-hit games. Smith is also 8-18 in his last four games. Jake Brigham recorded his highest strike out total this season by striking out seven in his longest outing. Brigham has won his last two starts and has given up three runs in 12.1 innings pitched.

(16-11) Carolina Mudcats 0, (15-13) Salem Red Sox 1
  • Johan Camargo, SS: 1-3, 1B, 1 SO, .260
  • Jose Briceno, C: 1-3, 2B, .157
  • Dustin Peterson, DH: 0-4, 1 SO, .286
  • Yean Carlos Gil (0-5), SP: 7 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 6 SO, 3.27 ERA
  • David Peterson, RP: IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO, 1.23 ERA
We had a pitcher's duel in Salem where Yan Carlos Gil and Ty Buttrey took the mound for their respective teams. Unfortunately for Yan, he surrendered the only run of the game for either team. He only allowed five this with only one walk and six strikeouts. For Salem, Buttrey matched with seven innings but only gave up 3 hits and no runs or walks with six strikeouts. David Peterson for the Braves kept the offense silent for the Red Sox by going one inning without giving up a hit or run. He struck out two batters in the inning pitched. Johan Camargo is on a five game hitting streak by picking up one hit in each game with two hits being doubles. Yan has provided several solid outings this season but has yet to pull out his first win with the lack of offensive support.

(12-15) Rome Braves 13, (12-15) Hagerstown Suns 0
  • Ozhaino Albies, SS: 2-4, 3B (4), 4 RBI, BB, .303
  • Braxton Davidson, RF: 2-4, 2-R HR (3), BB, 3 R, .225
  • Bryan De La Rosa, DH: 2-4, 2 2B, RBI, BB, 3 R, .250
  • Omar Obregon, 3B: 1-4, 2 RBI, SP, .299

  • Caleb Beech (1-2), RP: 5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 1 SO, 4.50 ERA
Hits, hits, and a little more offense came from Rome as the Braves toppled and dismembered the Suns. The team tallied 12 total hits with 6 of the hits being extra base knocks. Ozhaino Albies led the team in RBIs by tallying four on his two hits (one was his fourth triple of the season). Keith Curcio also connected for a triple, and it was his fifth of the season. Braxton Davidson smacked his third homer of the season and leads the team. Omar Obregon tacked a pair of RBIs for the Braves off his single and sacrifice fly. Bryan De La Rosa's has been a pleasant surprise lately as he has gone 5-12 in this home stand against the Suns. He has tallied three doubles and three runs in the four games. De La Rosa continued his hitting streak to ten games that dates back to mid-April. Max Povse looked solid starting his first game back from the DL. Povse was limited to three innings but did not allow a hit, run, or walk at all. Caleb Beech went most of the game and picked up his first win of the season. In his best outing thus far, Beech went five innings with no runs and five hits. He walked a pair of hits with one strike out.
