G-Braves Looking To Extend Win-Streak Monday

5.14.12 GBraves Game Notes

What a way to end a homestand than with a doubleheader the night before the team leaves for an eight-game road trip? It is the final day of this enormous 11-game homestand from Coolray Field and your first place Gwinnett Braves (23-13) couldn’t be feeling much better about themselves these days.

Currently, the G-Braves are 5-4 on the homestand after splitting a two-game set with the Charlotte Knights, losing three of four to Buffalo and winning all three against Toledo so far. In 2012, the G-Braves are a perfect 6-0 against the Toledo Mud Hens as they get set to do battle in a Monday double-dip. First pitch is scheduled for 5:05 p.m. and the second game will begin approximately 30 minutes after the first game has concluded.

The newest G-Brave Felix Pie will be making his Braves debut Monday night as he is slotted in the No. 5 spot in the batting order and set to start in right field. Pie was a former top prospect for the Chicago Cubs from 2003-2007, before jumping ship to the Baltimore Orioles organization. There, he played three seasons at the Major League level with the AL East Orioles. He batted a career-high .274 in 2010, his second season with the ballclub.

The first place IL South G-Braves stole the first game of a twinbill, 3-2, from the first place IL West Mud Hens on Friday night. Luis Durango cracked the game-winning hit with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning as both teams were stuck in a tie. With the RBI, the speedster has four in his last three games and is also leading the International League in stolen bases with 18 in 20 attempts. Jair Jurrjens (2-0) went the distance for the complete game win, while allowing just two runs.

In Game 2 Friday night, Gwinnett took advantage of Toledo pitching mistakes from the outset and never looked back. After scoring a few runs in the first inning, a bases loaded walk to Christian Marrero in the fourth inning opened up the floodgates. Anthony Varvaro made the spot-start and Erik Cordier grabbed the win as the G-Braves pitching was stellar for both games of the doubleheader. Joey Terdoslavich and Marrero each had multiple-RBI games in the second contest as they led the Gwinnett offensive charge.

Stefan Gartrell was named the International League Batter of the Week on Monday and he continued his torrid pace over the last three games. The slugger has five home runs in his last nine games, including 12 hits, six runs scored, 12 RBI, an .850 slugging percentage and a walk-off home run to beat Buffalo on Thursday afternoon. Gartrell rose his batting average from .165 to .216 in a matter of days and is only looking to keep climbing from there.

Toledo Mudhens (20-16, 2nd IL West) vs Gwinnett (23-13, 1st IL South) 

The No. 2 hitter in Toledo’s line-up for Monday’s game and the leadoff man for the three previous games, Justin Henry, has been on fire lately for the Mud Hens. The third baseman has reached base nine times in three games and will be looking to do more damage in two more games from Coolray tonight.

It will be interesting to see what the Toledo Mud Hens have in store for the G-Braves on Monday. The No. 1 overall prospect in the Detroit Tigers system, Jacob Turner, will be taking the mound against the G-Braves in his Triple-A debut at Coolray Field. Turner was just promoted from Single-A Lakeland as he completely skipped Double-A. In all liklihood this will be a spot-start for the righty and will be demoted to Double-A following the game. However, with a dominant performance he could prove his organization right and stick around for awhile. Either way, it should be exciting to witness Monday night.

Monday, May 14:  Game 1 – First Pitch 5:05 p.m. @ Coolray Field

Game 2 – First pitch approximately 30 minutes after the first game has ended 

Both games are scheduled to last seven innings. The International League South Division-leading G-Braves (23-13) will likely start right-hander Eric Junge (3-3, 3.09) in game one and left-hander Yohan Flande (1-2, 2.93) in game two. Toledo is slated to start the Detroit Tigers No. 1 prospect in the form of right-hander Jacob Turner (0-0, 0.00) alongside left-hander Casey Crosby (3-2, 4.55). Both games will be broadcast on WDUN 550 AM and 102.9 FM with Tony Schiavone calling the play-by-play.

Sunday’s Mother’s Day Diamond Dig has been rescheduled for Sunday, May 27, following Gwinnett’s 2:05 PM game against Rochester.

Monday is another Kids Eat Free night at Coolray Field, where all kids 12 and under will receive a voucher for a free hot dog, a bag of chips and a small soda.

G-Braves Seeking Fourth Straight Win

Photo courtesy of Kyle Hess

It is day No. 8 of this 11-game homestand in 10 days and we are all still standing, especially your first place Gwinnett Braves (22-13). Even with the untimely losing skid that lasted into the Buffalo series, the G-Braves have seemingly righted the ship. After losing their sixth game in seven contests in Game 3 of the Buffalo series, something started to click and the G-Braves have won three straight games and are looking reinvigorated at the plate.

Friday the Gwinnett Braves begin their five-game series with the Toledo Mudhens (20-15) from Coolray Field. It was originally scheduled to be a four-game set, but a rain postponed game in Ohio last week caused the International League to create a doubleheader this week from Coolray Field since the two teams will not see each other the rest of this season…barring a playoff match-up.

The first place IL South G-Braves stole the first game of a twinbill, 3-2, from the first place IL West Mud Hens on Friday night. Luis Durango cracked the game-winning hit with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning as both teams were stuck in a tie.

Jair Jurrjens Set To Start Game 1 of Doubleheader

5.11.12 GBraves Game Notes

Photo courtesy of Kyle Hess

Friday the Gwinnett Braves begin their five-game series with the Toledo Mudhens from Coolray Field. It was originally scheduled to be a four-game set, but a rain postponed game in Ohio last week caused the International League to create a doubleheader this week from Coolray Field since the two teams will not see each other the rest of this season…barring a playoff match-up.

The first place IL South G-Braves will host the first place IL West Mudhens in the first game of a double-dip on Friday for a 5:00 p.m. first pitch. Then, Toledo will actually become the home team for the second game on Friday night, which will begin approximately 30 minutes after the first game has concluded.

Thursday the G-Braves were on the verge of being swept by the Buffalo Bisons (20-14) before some major heroics by Stefan Gartrell and company. Gwinnett was on the verge of taking the ballgame, 3-1, in the ninth inning following a would-be game-winning two-out, two-run double by Luis Durango in the bottom of the eighth inning. However, Thursday’s closer Cory Gearrin could not stave off Buffalo as they scored twice to knot the game up once again and force extra innings. However, the G-Braves wouldn’t extend the game for long as Gartrell blasted them to victory in the 10th with a walk-off shot.

The G-Braves have now won two of their last six games, but are still resting comfortably in first place of the International League South Division at 20-13. Gwinnett does not own the best record in the league anymore after their latest skid, however they are just two games behind the IL-leading Pawtucket Red Sox (22-13).

Toledo comes into town winners of six of their last 10 games including an identical first place record as Gwinnett at 20-13. The last time these two teams met in Toledo last week, the G-Braves won all three games while the fourth was obviously postponed until tonight.

Stefan Gartrell was named the International League Batter of the Week as he continues his torrid pace. The slugger is batting over .400 in his last seven games, including five home runs, 12 RBI and an .850 slugging percentage. Gartrell rose his batting average from .165 to .216 in a matter of days.

Currently Jose Constanza is on an 11-game hit streak that he will be looking to extend in both games on Friday night. Luis Durango is also on a tear of his own this season. The speedster stole three bases in Wednesday’s game pushing his season total to 18 stolen bases in 20 attempts for the IL lead.

Toledo Mudhens (20-13, 1st IL West) vs Gwinnett (20-13, 1st IL South) 

Jair Jurrjens (1-0, 1.80) will be facing the organization that originally drafted him in the form of the Detroit Tigers. The righty will be opposing Toledo southpaw Adam Wilk (2-1, 1.06) in what should be a phenomenal match-up in the first of two games from Coolray Field on Friday night.

Friday, May 11:

Game 1 – First Pitch 5:05 a.m. @ Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, GA

Game 2 – Approximately 30 minutes after first game concludes @ Coolray Field

Good Morning from Coolray Field

5.10.12 GBraves Game Notes

Thursday is “Education Day” with a 10:35 a.m. start time from Coolray Field, so be at the ballpark early for some coffee, donuts and morning baseball. Saturday night began an 11-game homestand in 10 days for the Gwinnett Braves. Game No. 6 from Coolray Field is set for Thursday morning and it should be a good one between Gwinnett and Buffalo.

Wednesday the G-Braves fell to Buffalo yet again, 4-1, after fighting through a tie ballgame for most of the evening. The Bisons won their third straight against Gwinnett after scoring three runs and breaking the 1-1 tie in the seventh inning. Jeurys Familia was outstanding for the New York Mets affiliate, as he moved his record to 3-1 on the season. Yohan Flande was handed his second loss of the season for Gwinnett.

The G-Braves have now lost six of their last seven games, but are still resting comfortably in first place of the International League South Division at 19-13. Gwinnett does not own the best record in the league anymore after their latest skid, however they are just two games behind the IL-leading Pawtucket Red Sox (21-13).

Buffalo (20-13) is surging after going 7-3 in their last 10 games and staring up in the standings at the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate, trailing by just a single game. The Bisons possess the second best record in the IL and are loaded with pitching talent in 2012. The G-Braves have already faced the Mets No. 2 and No. 4 stud pitching prospects in their system in the current series and wound up losing to both of them.

Stefan Gartrell was named the International League Batter of the Week as he continues his torrid pace. The slugger is batting over .400 in his last seven games, including four home runs, 10 RBI and an .850 slugging percentage. Gartrell rose his batting average from .165 to .216 in a matter of days.

Currently Jose Constanza is on a 10-game hit streak that he will be looking to extend on Thursday against Jeremy Hefner. On the season, the G-Braves left fielder is hitting a team-high .348 with 13 RBI and five stolen bases. Luis Durango is also on a tear of his own this season. The speedster stole three bases in Wednesday’s game pushing his season total to 18 stolen bases in 19 attempts for the lead in the IL.

Thursday, May 9 – First Pitch 10:35 a.m. @ Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, GA

The host of the 2012 IL All-Star Game, Buffalo Bisons, are in town for their first match-up with the G-Braves this season.

Gwinnett Looking To Halt Skid Wednesday

5.9.12 GBraves Game Notes

Photo courtesy of Melinda Pease

Saturday night began an 11-game homestand in 10 days for the Gwinnett Braves. Game No. 5 from Coolray Field is set for Wednesday night and it should be a good one between Gwinnett and Buffalo.

Tuesday the G-Braves were shutout by the Bisons, 3-0. Buffalo scored one run in each of the first three innings of the game and would not look back from there. Add the fact that Matt Harvey, the No. 2 prospect in the New York Mets system, was on the bump and the G-Braves were looking at a near improbable comeback situation.

The G-Braves have lost five of their last six games, but are still resting comfortably in first place of the International League South Division at 19-12. The next closest team in the division is Charlotte at 15-16 who is four games behind your G-Braves. Gwinnett does not own the best record in the league anymore after their latest skid, however they are just one game behind the IL-leading Pawtucket Red Sox (20-13).

Buffalo (19-13) is surging after going 7-3 in their last 10 games and staring up in the standings at the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate, trailing by just a single game. The Bisons are loaded with pitching talent and will have their No. 4 overall prospect on the mound Wednesday, as he follows the No. 2 prospect last night.

Stefan Gartrell was named the International League Batter of the Week as he continues his torrid pace. The slugger is batting over .400 in his last seven games, including four home runs, nine RBI and an .850 slugging percentage. Gartrell rose his batting average from .165 to .216 in a matter of days.

Currently Jose Constanza is on a 9-game hit streak that he will be looking to extend on Wednesday against Jeurys Familia. On the season, the G-Braves left fielder is hitting a team-high .352 with 13 RBI and five stolen bases.

First Place G-Braves Facing Tough Test Tuesday

5.8.12 GBraves Game Notes

Photo courtesy of Daniel Hamby

Saturday night began an 11-game homestand in 10 days for the Gwinnett Braves. Game No. 4 of from Coolray Field is set for Tuesday night and it should be a good one between Gwinnett and Buffalo. Monday the G-Braves fell to the Bisons, 4-3, in an uncharacteristic game for Gwinnett. For seemingly the first time all season, the G-Braves bullpen let them down. Gwinnett was leading the entire game, 3-0, until the top of the eighth inning when Buffalo struck for four runs to take a 4-3 lead.

Three G-Braves relievers combined to allow the four runs and Jaye Chapman was tagged with the blown save and loss. Regardless, this is why baseball is the best game in the world…The next day, you get to do it again with a chance for redemption.

Stefan Gartrell and company will indeed be looking to redeem themselves, but it won’t be easy against one of the top prospects in the country in Matt Harvey. Gartrell however was named the International League Batter of the Week today as he continues his torrid pace. The slugger is batting over .400 in his last six games, including four home runs, nine RBI and an .850 slugging percentage. Gartrell rose his batting average from .165 to .216 in a matter of days. The big bopper is looking to extend his hit streak to nine games and his RBI streak to seven games on Tuesday night.

Buffalo Bisons (17-14, 3rd in IL North) vs Gwinnett (19-11, 1st in IL South) 

One of the top pitching prospects in baseball Matt Harvey (2-1, 4.80) is set to take the mound Tuesday against G-Braves righty Eric Junge (3-2, 3.10) for a 7:05 p.m. first pitch. Matt Harvey is the New York Mets No. 2 prospect and the No. 35 overall prospect according to Baseball America. The righty has punched out 27 batters and walked 13 through 30 innings of work so far this season, while allowing just one home run.

G-Braves Julio Teheran Set To Start Monday Night

5.7.12 GBraves Game Notes

Photo courtesy of Daniel Hamby

Saturday night began an 11-game homestand in 10 days for the Gwinnett Braves, but it did not start the way Gwinnett like with a loss to Charlotte. Sunday the G-Braves concluded their two-game series with the Knights with a 6-2 victory, pushing the season series to a 4-4 tie. Jair Jurrjens was stellar, working eight innings of two-run baseball en route to his first win with the G-BRaves in 2012.

The former New York Met 1986 World Series winner, Wally Backman, is managing the Mets Triple-A affiliate as he continues his New York legacy. The skipper will be managing in the National League format tonight as both teams are farm clubs of NL teams. Therefore, for the first time this season from Coolray Field, both pitchers will be batting in this four-game series.

The top pitching prospect in baseball Julio Teheran (2-1, 3.66) will take the mound for the G-Braves against Buffalo right-hander Chris Schwinden (2-2, 2.05). Teheran’s last start was cut short due to rain, as he continues to seek his third win of the season.
