Louisville 10, Richmond 2
Brian O'Connor was hit hard yesterday, as was Carlos Almanzar and Peter Moylan. Of course it comes as no surprise that Moylan got blasted because I don't think he has had a good outing in weeks. David Bush continued his good work in AAA with 1.1 scoreless innings to finish the game. Jamal Strong stayed hot with 3 hits and a run. Martin Prado also went 2-3 with a run. Gregor Blanco went 0-4 and is hitting .179 since his callup to Richmond.
AA - Mississippi
Mississippi 1, Birmingham 0
Chris Waters pitched a beauty and standout relievers Arthur Santos and Zach Schreiber did the rest. Waters threw 6 shutout innings with only 2 hits and 3 walks. Santos pitched 2 shutout innings and Schreiber saved it. Santos still hasn't given up a run in AA and Schreiber's ERA is 1.61 to go with his 9 saves. Brandon Jones doubled and scored the only run of the game on Jarrod Saltalamacchia's sacrifice fly. However, Salty went 0-1 to drop his average to barely above the Mendoza line at .201.
Low A - Myrtle Beach
Rome 11, Savannah 8
Jairo Cuevas had a rough start but Rudy Quinonez pitched 4 hitless innings to collect the win. Jordan Shafer had a huge day with a double, triple, and 5 RBI's. Cody Clark also had 2 RBI's and is hitting .320. Josh Morris, just drafted out of the University of Georgia, made his debut and collected 2 hits in 5 at-bats while scoring once. Also, Elvis Andrus drove in a run and didn't make an error at shortstop.

Tigers 7, Braves 2
Adam Coe continues to tear the cover off the ball with 2 hits and a homer yesterday. He is currently batting .455 with 2 home runs. Jose Ortegano gave up 6 runs in 3 innings for the loss but the bullpen pitched well by only surrendering an unearned run.
