HOW SWEEP IT IS: For the second time this season, the M-Braves swept a doubleheader from Biloxi. Two of Atlanta’s top three prospects, Hurston Waldrep (#2) and Spencer Schwellenbach (#3), dominated their respective starts en route to a Mississippi Braves sweep of visiting Biloxi at Trustmark Park on Wednesday night. Waldrep went the distance in the opener, allowing one run while striking out eight in the eight-inning 2-1 victory. In his Double-A debut, Schwellenbach struck out a career-high nine and scattered three hits and a walk over six frames in a 1-0 win. MLB’s No. 75 overall prospect, Waldrep, set the tone in Game 1. The 22-year-old right-hander allowed six hits but didn’t issue any walks. The M-Braves walked off in the bottom of the eighth via a sacrifice fly from Tyler Tolve. Drake Baldwin blasted his second home run of the year. In his first four innings, Schwellenbach struck out two batters per frame in game two. Yolbert Sanchez was 2-for-3, collecting an RBI in the second inning for the lone RBI of the contest.
