PEARL, Miss. - St. Amant native Ben Sheets gave up three runs in 5 2-3 innings during his second start with the Double-A Mississippi Braves.

The 33-year-old right-hander allowed seven hits - all singles - while striking out four. His fastball was consistently around 90-91 miles per hour.

Sheets gave up four runs in five innings in his first Double-A start on Wednesday. Sheets last pitched in the majors with the Oakland Athletics in 2010.
