Tuesday, April 21 - Charleston 5, Augusta 4

 

Things to watch

1. Tempers: There was some chirping about the strike zone during this game, a day after Reid Joyner made a controversial call on a potential game-ending double play. Joyner rang up Augusta's Jeremy Sy to end this game, and Joyner pointed at Sy as an indication that too much was said.

Monday, April 20 - Charleston 5, Augusta 4

 

Things to watch

1. Sam Coonrod's Augusta debut: Coonrod gave up two runs on three hits in five innings, walking one and striking out six. He now has 13 strikeouts in his first 10 innings for the GreenJackets. The runs allowed came on a groundout and sacrifice fly, the second after a fly ball was lost in the night sky and should have been a flyout.

April 13-19

Pitch of the week

Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson had already pounded the Braves in the series when he came up to face Shelby Miller for the third time Sunday, down 5-0. With two strikes on Donaldson, Miller froze the star slugger with an 87-mph cutter on the outside corner for the third strike. It helped snap a five-game hitting streak for Donaldson which saw him go 11 for 21 with three home runs and seven RBI. Photo 1 shows how perfectly placed the cutter was for Miller.

Friday, April 17 - Rome 6, Augusta 3

 

Things to watch:

1. Ricardo Sanchez - The young Braves left-hander only threw 2.2 innings after failing to get out of trouble in the third, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks with five strikeouts. He had swing-and-miss stuff but was inefficient and lacked command at times.
