When I checked the box scores Saturday and Sunday during my vacation, I noticed Ryder Jones wasn't in the lineup consecutive days. I assumed he was dinged up or would go on the disabled list for rest, and I planned to ask when I returned from vacation Monday.

 

I never got to ask, because Jones was in Salem-Keizer by the time I returned. The thought of a demotion to short-season ball at this time of the season never crossed my mind.

Monday, July 28 - Augusta 7, Greensboro 3

 

The GreenJackets rebounded well from a rough Sunday loss to claim two leads and an eventual win Monday night, all backed by a tremendous night from catcher Ty Ross.

 

Ty Ross:

Ross has made great strides at the plate over the course of the season. After plodding along the first few months, he started to pick up steam around the All-Star break. He turned on the jets in July, and it's been his best stretch over the past 18 games.

A fun storyline often mentioned during Braves games this season is Freddie Freeman's ineptitude against Marlins pitching. It obviously isn't fun to Freeman. But the fact that such a good hitter is struggling this much against one team raises eyebrows.
