Worth noting

• Peter Moylan, coming back from shoulder surgery, made his first appearance for Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday at Durham. He worked the eighth inning of a 5-3 loss and allowed one run on three hits. He struck out two and walked none. Moylan had appeared in nine games at three lower levels earlier in the season, posting a 1-1 record and 7.20 ERA in 10 innings. He went 2-1 with a 3.24 ERA in 13 games with Atlanta last year before getting injured.

• The Rome Braves continued their stunning turnaround by setting a franchise record with their 12th straight victory on Friday, beating Kannapolis, 9-1. The R-Braves lead the South Division of the Class A South Atlantic League at 28-14 in the second half after going 18-52 in the first half for the worst record in the Minor Leagues. Manager Randy Ingle's team got a boost with the addition of six players from the 2012 First-Year Player Draft. Second-round pick Alex Wood struck out eight in five innings against Kannapolis, and 18th-rounder Ross Heffley hit a three-run homer.
