Tomahawk Take Editor Notes: “It was the worst call I’ve ever seen,” said Manager Fredi Gonzalez after the 9th inning play at second base. The rule is called the neighborhood rule and it was designed to not hurt the stars of the sport (or protect any ball player) around the bags. Andrelton Simmons grazed the bag with his foot when he received the ball and then threw it to first. At first, the umps called him out but the Mets asked for a reviewal. After calling the MLB replay headquarters, the runner was called safe. This didn’t effect the game during that inning but you never know what could of happened. Umpires must know the rules of the game!

Mets beat Atlanta Braves 4-3 with Ruben Tejada‘s walk-off single in 11th inning
Tomahawk Take Editor Notes: Curtis Granderson…ugh. He blasted a home run in the 8th inning to tie the game off Luis Avilan. With the trade deadline quickly approaching, the Mets are trying to decide if they are sellers or buyers come July 31st.
A blown lead in the eighth had brought upon extra innings but in the 11th, Ruben Tejada sliced a single into center field, scoring Juan Lagares for the winning run and giving the Mets a 4-3 victory
“We needed it bad,” Mets manager Terry Collins said of the victory, which improved the Mets’ record to 40-49. “We can’t lose another game like this to these guys.”
By the time Tejada stepped into the role of hero, Daisuke Matsuzaka’s seven shutout innings were a footnote and David Wright’s home run was but a step along the way. After it was over, the NL East-leading Braves were a step closer, now nine games ahead in the division.

Atlanta Braves GM watches son play at Riverwalk
Tomahawk Take Editor Notes: Kyle Wren was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the 8th round of the 2013 draft out of Georgia Tech. He has excelled with every team he’s been with so far in the Braves organization and looks to continue that at Mississippi. The son of GM Frank Wren, Kyle is a speedy outfielder with good pop in his bat. A potential leadoff kind of guy for the Braves.
Kyle Wren is the newest member of the Mississippi Braves outfield.
“I love the Atlanta Braves. It kind of always was the dream to play for them,” Kyle Wren said.
Many players say it’s a dream to play in the Braves organization but for Kyle it truly is something to cherish. Kyle is the son of Atlanta Braves General Manager Frank Wren.
In fact, Frank Wren was at Riverwalk Stadium Monday night checking out the action between the Biscuits and MBraves and watching his son play.
