Allard impresses in second start of the season for the Gwinnett Stripers

Kolby Allard is the 6th ranked Braves prospect according to MLB.com and many people believe he will find his way into the Atlanta starting rotation in the next couple of years. The 20 year old has some great potential and possesses a fastball that is in the low 90s that has good movement. Allard also has a very good change up and one of the best curveballs in the organization. When he does make the jump to Atlanta, the Braves will hopefully have a dominant south paw in their rotation.

Gwinnett has struggled to win games so far this season due to a lack luster offense and average pitching. However, they picked up a win last night against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRaiders, who came into last night’s game with the best batting average in the International League. Kolby Allard pitched 5 2/3 innings only allowing 1 earned run on 4 hits with 5 strikeouts and 2 walks. He would pick up his first win in a Striper’s uniform thanks to offensive production from the middle of Gwinnett’s line up. Dustin Peterson, Rio Ruiz, Rob Brantly, and Christian Colon combined for an 8 for 15 performance with 1 walk and 4 RBIs.

Ronald Acuna went 0 for 3 with 2 walks and 2 strike outs. Acuna is really struggling right now as he sports a .139 batting average into the first couple of weeks of the season. Johan Camargo continues to do well in his rehab stint with the Stripers as he went 2 for 5 with 1 RBI and 2 strike outs. The Stripers currently have a 3-6 record and find themselves at the bottom of the International League South division. Hopefully, the offense will carry over into the next few games and get them back on track.

Kolby Allard has pitched 9.2 innings in his first two starts of the season. He has allowed 8 hits with 4 earned runs and has struck out 8 batters. His ERA currently sits at 3.72 with a 1-0 win/loss record. Allard has done fairly well since making the jump to the AAA level and he will surely continue to thrive as a Gwinnett Striper.

The Stripers will take on the RailRaiders again tonight (7:05 pm) at CoolRay Field. Mike Soroka will take the mound for the third time this season and looks to improve upon his last outing that saw him strike out 8 batters over 5 2/3 innings. The future is bright for the Stripers and it’s just a matter of time before everything starts clicking for all of these young players.
