Second baseman Jose Peraza, the Braves' No. 3 prospect, collected four hits Tuesday and Double-A Mississippi defeated Montgomery, 7-4.

Peraza, ranked No. 99 on MLBPipeline.com's Top 100 Prospects list, went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a stolen base and an RBI. It was the fourth four-hit game of his career and second of the season.

Third baseman Kyle Kubitza, the Braves' No. 9 prospect, went 1-for-5 with double, a run and an RBI and shortstop Daniel Castro added five hits.
