M-Braves win again vs. Mobile

Published 10:20 am Monday, August 4, 2014

The Mississippi Braves keep winning, but they can’t get any traction in the standings.

Braeden Schlehuber hit a tiebreaking double to spark a three-run rally in the seventh inning, Barrett Kleinknecht followed with a two-run homer, and the M-Braves went on to beat Mobile 5-1 Sunday for their eighth win in 10 games.

Despite the hot streak, the M-Braves remained four games behind first-place Jacksonville in the Southern League South Division. Jacksonville beat Huntsville 7-1 Sunday for its sixth win in a row.
