In one of the most thrilling games of the 2012 season so far, the Gwinnett Braves pulled off yet another last at-bat comeback win against Norfolk, 4-3, on Monday night at Coolray Field. J.C. Boscan’s RBI single tied the score in the bottom of the 12th, and Drew Sutton’s RBI double claimed the victory for the first place G-Braves.

The G-Braves entered the bottom of the 12th trailing 3-2, but scored twice against Tides’ right-hander Willie Eyre (L, 0-2) to earn their third last at-bat victory of the season. Right-hander Adam Russell (W, 2-0) got the win in relief despite allowing a go-ahead sacrifice fly to Steve Tolleson in the top of the 12th.

The Gwinnett Braves (8-4) continue the series with the Norfolk Tides (5-7) on Tuesday night at Coolray Field, first pitch scheduled for 7:05 PM. Listen to the game on WDUN 550 AM and 102.9 FM with Tony Schiavone calling the play-by-play.

G-Braves Righty Julio Teheran (1-0, 4.05) will be making his third start of the season, as he will oppose the Orioles top pitching prospect, Norfolk right-hander Chris Tillman (1-1, 3.60).
