Minor League Preview - April 16

Here's a look at today's schedule around the Braves' farm system.

RICHMOND

After splitting a doubleheader with Rochester on Tuesday, the Braves continue the five-game series tonight at 6:35 pm. Damian Moss is scheduled to pitch for Richmond against Glen Perkins. The Braves are in first place in the International League's South Division with a 9-4 record, a game and a half on top of Charlotte.


MISSISSIPPI

It's a lunchtime game for the Braves today as they play in Birmingham against the Barons at 12:05 am ET. Todd Redmond (0-0, 4.15) will pitch for the Braves, who have lost four in a row and are 2-10 on the season, five games back of the Barons in the Southern League's South Division.


MYRTLE BEACH

The Pelicans have a rare morning start to their game with the Winston-Salem Warthogs starting at 10:35 am ET at BB&T Coastal Field. Kyle Cofield (0-1) will pitch for Myrtle Beach against Warthogs right-hander Jacob Rasner (0-0). The Pelicans are now 6-6 on the season and go for the series sweep in today's game against Winston-Salem.


ROME

The Braves will finish out what has been a very unsuccessful six-game road trip tonight in Columbus against the Catfish. Rome is 0-5 so far on the trip, which has the overall record now at 4-9. Eric Barrett (0-1, 2.08) is scheduled to go for the Braves.
