G-Braves Game Notes for 4.29.12 at Toledo

It’s another busy Sunday for the G-Braves today as they continue a four-game set at Fifth Third Field in Toledo, OH.  Gwinnett captured its third-straight win last night with an 8-3 decision over the Mud Hens, getting some serious production out of the middle of the order.  Ernesto Mejia and Joey Terdoslavich each went 2-for-4 with home runs and two RBI (both hitting their third blasts of the year), while Stefan Gartrell notched a two-run double to give the G-Braves a permanent lead in the fifth inning.   Right-hander Todd Redmond (W, 2-2) turned in his second quality start, limiting the ‘Hens to three runs over 6.0 innings while striking out seven.  As usual, the G-Pen was air-tight as right-handers Erik Cordier and Jason Rice combined on 3.0 scoreless, one-hit innings.

Dave Brundage’s IL South-leading crew will try to capture the series with Toledo today with right-hander Jair Jurrjens set to make his first start since being optioned to Triple-A.   Jurrjens is 2-1 with a 4.74 ERA (10 ER in 19.0 IP) in four career Triple-A starts, all coming on previous MLB Rehab assignments with the G-Braves.  Ironically, he’ll face the Triple-A affiliate of the organization that signed him in 2003 today, the Detroit-affiliated Mud Hens.  Jurrjens skipped over Toledo on his way to the big-leagues in 2007 and has never faced the Tigers nor one of their minor league affiliates since arriving in Atlanta.  Needless to say, it’s an interesting match-up for JJ’s first start.

Speaking of MLB Rehab assignments, right-hander Tim Hudson’s is now officially done.  He’s been activated from the Atlanta DL and starts for the Braves today against Pittsburgh.  That means a chain of roster moves affecting your Gwinnett Braves.  Right-hander Cory Gearrin has been optioned back to Gwinnett, where he’s 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and two saves in seven outings this year…he did not pitch for Atlanta after being recalled on April 24.  To make room for Gearrin, left-hander Ben Swaggerty (0-0, 4.32 in six games) has been transferred to Rookie-A Danville.

With all of these moves, it’s been a busy Sunday morning  for Media/PR managers also.

Good to see the blog up and running. Tell TODD REDMOND to hold his mud together. He’s needed in an emergency in ATLANTA.

Any word on whether JAIR was scheduled to start last night’s game and was pulled?
