Kudos to Phillip Wellman, the former Mississippi Braves manager, on notching his 1,000th win as a minor league skipper. Wellman’s San Antonio Missions went 14 innings to beat Northwest Arkansas 5-4 in a Texas League game on Thursday. Ole Miss alum Auston Bousfield got the game-winning hit. This is Wellman’s second year with the Missions, a San Diego Padres affiliate. He spent four years with the M-Braves, including the Southern League championship season of 2008, and was the club’s winningest manager until Aaron Holbert passed him in 2015.
