Beachy Goes Five Strong For Gwinnett

Braves Minor League Report : Friday 719

Saturday, July 20, 2013 - by David Jenkins
Brandon Beachy had an outing we were all waiting for Friday; five innings, five hits, one run, three strikeouts. He threw 70 pitches and did not give up a run until the fifth against the Pirates' Triple-A club.

One surprise in Gwinnett's lineup is the coming of age of Phil Gosselin.
The second baseman's average with the G-Braves is higher than it was at any previous professional level. The former Virginia Cavalier is a savvy baseball player who figures to have a future if he can maintain his offense.
-------- 
Critics of Christian Bethacourt's lack of power may have to find a new argument. The up-and-coming Braves catcher hit two homers tonight for Mississippi, giving him a solid nine for the year in the M-Braves' tough, tight game with Jackson.

Bethancourt this week was the only Southern League all-star to repeat his 2012 honor in 2013. My goodness, what could he bring in a trade?
-------- 
Earning his first professional win for Danville today was all-name team member Dakota Dill. He followed a shaky outing from still-healing Jean-Claude Gil with two hitless innings of relief. Dill was a 2013 draft pick (26th round, the latest pitcher to sign) out of Sullivan Ross State. And he seems to be settling in; he has not allowed a run over his last three outings (4.1 innings).

Roy Exum: UT A 34-Point ‘Dog

I can’t remember a time in my life when a University of Tennessee football team has been a five touchdown underdog and this comes at a time when my primary-care physician tells me, “Let’s face it … you are old.” That said, even when I look at myself naked in the bathroom mirror I ain’t as ugly as what I fear will happen in Tuscaloosa this coming Saturday. I can remember the Tide ... (click for more)
