Four of Adam Hall’s Canadian Junior National Teammate pitchers combined to limit Atlanta Braves hitters to just two hits, while the Juniors smacked out nine hits en route to their first win of Fall Instructional League – a 7-1 victory over a group of Atlanta Braves prospects.
The Juniors opened the scoring in the first as Edouard Julien walked and put himself in scoring position when he stole second. Noah Naylor followed with a two out, RBI single and Canada was in front 1 - 0.
The only Braves run of the afternoon scored in the second when JNT starter Ben Abram surrendered a solo home run.
That would be the only hit that Abram allowed over three inning of work that saw him record three strikeouts.
The game remained tied until the sixth when the Juniors exploded for three runs to move in front 4 - 1.
All three runs came with two out as Denzel Clarke got things rolling with a walk before Cooper Davis followed with a single. A Julien doubled to score Clarke, while Davis crossed home plate on a wild pitch and a Hall single brought in Julien to complete the scoring.
Michael Stovman singled and scored on a Lucas Parente double in the seventh before Julien knocked in a pair of runs in the eight on a base hit to put the Junior up 7-1.
