AAA - Richmond
Brian O'Connor pitched a great game but the normally reliable Peter Moylan blew it in the 8th. O'Connr gave up just 1 run on 5 hits in 7 innings while striking out 5. Moylan gave up 4 hits and 4 runs while recording just 1 out. Scott Thorman was once again the leader of the offense with 3 hits including 2 doubles and 1 RBI. Just a matter of time before his promotion.
AA - Mississippi
Paul Bush got pounded for probably the first time this year. He gave up 9 runs on 10 hits in 4 innings. Francisley Bueno was the only effective pitcher as he threw 3 shutout innings on only 1 hit. The offense was good but not good enough. Yunel Escobar stayed red hot with 2 hits including a 3-run homer as he started at 3B once again. Mike Rosamond also homered for the Braves.
High A - Myrtle Beach
The offense and pitching was pretty bad in this one. Charlie Morton and Gonzalo Lopez gave up 7 runs in the first 6 innings. Van Pope drove in a run while Steven Doetsch had 3 hits and an RBI but that was it for the offense.
Low A - Rome
Two of the big 3 came up big whle Beau Jones got his 2nd victory of the year. Beau gave up 5 hits and 4 runs in 5 innings for the win. Devin Anderson relieved Jones with 3 good innings lowering his ERA to 1.47. Kala Kaaihue reached base 5 times with 2 hits and 3 walks rasing his average to .340. Eric Campbell had 2 hits, 1 home run, and 3 RBI's. Max Ramirez uncharacteristically went 0-5 but is still batting .303.
