Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: Kyle Wright with an up and down start, big home runs highlight Monday

There were four teams in action and five games Monday night on the Atlanta Braves farm. Let’s take a look at how it went down in the Braves minor leagues on Monday night.

Norfolk Tide 6, Gwinnett Stripers 5

Wright came out guns a-blazing, striking out the side in the first. Two came on swinging third strikes and one came looking. Then, Wright had to work.

  • The leadoff hitter reached base in each of the next five innings. Four-straight balls led off the second, and that runner came around to score,
  • A lead-off double in the third inning, who eventually came around to score in a crooked inning,
  • And then he plunked Ryan Mountcastle to lead off the fifth, who came around to score.
