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.

Thursday, April 16 - Augusta 1, Rome 0

 

Things to watch:

1. Johneshwy Fargas vs. Rome catchers - Fargas stole his seventh base of the season by beating a 1.9 pop time from Bryan De La Rosa, who threw from his knees. De La Rosa transferred the ball quickly but didn't get as much on it as he normally does, and the throw sailed a little. Fargas beat it pretty easily.

ATLANTA - With the tying run at the plate and facing one of the best 2-3 hitter combinations in the National League, Jim Johnson opened eyes with perhaps the best stuff he's had in quite a while.

ATLANTA - Trevor Cahill entered the season with a noticeable change in his delivery as an attempt to regain the downhill plane and movement lost in 2014, but his first start showed there's plenty work to be done.

 

Cahill came out with a flat sinker and poor command in his first start for the Braves, resulting in four runs allowed on three walks and five hits in 2.1 innings.
