Moylan gets first game action for Gwinnett
CHICAGO -- After anxiously waiting for the chance to pitch in a game again, Braves right-handed reliever Peter Moylan returned to the mound Monday night and tossed a scoreless inning for Triple-A Gwinnett.

Facing the Charlotte Knights, Moylan allowed a single and pitched around a two-out walk. More importantly, he exited the 18-pitch inning without any discomfort. This marked the first time he had pitched in a game setting since he began experiencing back pain in the middle of April.

"It wasn't pretty, but it was effective, " Moylan said via text message.

Since undergoing a surgical procedure to repair a herniated disc on May 17, Moylan has experienced a long rehab process. He underwent similar surgical procedures in 2001 and 2003, while he was selling insurance and playing club baseball in his native Australia.

Moylan is scheduled to pitch again for Gwinnett on Thursday and then make back-to-back appearances within the following few days. He is not expected to be activated from the disabled list until the Major League rosters expand in September.
