It's a full day of action around the Braves' farm system. Ricardo Rodriguez tries to help Richmond get on track against Ottawa, while lefty Jo Jo Reyes goes for the hot Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The Braves Show's Bill Shanks has more.

RICHMOND


The Braves play game two of its four-game series against Ottawa tonight at 7:00 pm at the Diamond. Ricardo Rodriguez (3-7, 4.34 ERA) will pitch for the Braves, who are 29-53 on the season, 24 games behind Charlotte in the International League’s South Division.


MISSISSIPPI


The struggling Mississippi Braves finish out a series in Montgomery tonight at 8:05 pm ET. Matt Wright, the probable starter in next Monday’s Southern League All-Star Game, will pitch for the Braves. He’s 7-3 with a 2.27 ERA. With a six-game losing streak, Mississippi is now 3-11 in the second half of the season, six games back of Montgomery in the South Division of the Southern League.


MYRTLE BEACH


Lefty Jo Jo Reyes pitches for the Pelicans as they go for their third win in a row tonight at 7:05 in Potomac against the Nationals. Myrtle Beach is in first place with a 6-3 record in the second half of the season. They are a half game up on Winston-Salem in the Carolina League’s Southern Division.


ROME
