5/26 Recap

AAA - Richmond
Brian O'Connor had been pitching very well this year until tonight.  Through 5 innings, he had only given up 2 runs but he had also given up 10 hits.  The hits finally caught up to him in the 6th when Durham scored 6 times.  Overall, O'Conner gave up 7 runs on 13 hits in 5 innings.  Kelly Johnson led the offense with 3 hits, a double, and 2 RBI's.  He also stole a base.  Another interesting note involves Rocco Baldelli who was making his 3rd rehab appearance for Durham.  He only had 1 at-bat before being taken out of the game.  This is only speculation, but he could have reinjured himself.  That would be a shame because injuries have already taken such a toll on his young career.

Durham 9, Richmond 3

AA - Mississippi

Paul Bush made another good start going 6 innings, giving up 5 hits and 2 runs.  Ryan Basner gave up only 1 hit in the 7th and the 8th, and Zach Scheiber continued his strong pitching since his call-up from Myrtle Beach with 2 strikeouts in a scoreless 9th.  Mike Rosamond led the offense with a grand slam in the 5th inning.  Matt Esquivel had 2 hits and an RBI and Barbaro Canizares also drove in a run.  Gregor Blanco reached base 5 times with 2 hits and 3 walks while stealing his 15th base.

Mississippi 8, Birmingham 2

Low A - Rome
Beau Jones pitched well for 5 innings with no run support and then gave way to the bullpen who let it get out of hand.  Jones only allowed 1 run on 4 hits and 4 walks in 5 innings.  The bullpen gave up 6 runs in the final 4 innings.  The Braves made a comback with 4 unearned runs in the bottom of the 9th but it was too little, too late.  Jordan Schafer stayed hot going 1-3 with an RBI.

Savannah 7, Rome 5
