The Gwinnett Braves are coming off a disappointing three-game road trip, losing two of three games to the Charlotte Knights. The Chicago White Sox affiliate is currently two games behind the G-Braves for first place in the International League South Division.

In fact, the Knights are now at Coolray Field for three more games with Gwinnett, as the G-Braves have payback on the mind. Tuesday night, Atlanta Braves ace Tim Hudson (1-0, 0.00) will be making his second start for the G-Braves as he inches closer to the big leagues.

Infielder Drew Sutton is currently on an 11-game hit streak entering play Tuesday night for the G-Braves. The switch-hitter is batting .258 this season with seven RBI and two stolen bases. He also added a game-winning hit to his resume, against Norfolk last week in extra innings from Coolray Field.

Starting Line-up: Charlotte Knights (10-8, 2nd) vs Gwinnett (12-6, 1st) – Tuesday, April 24 @ 7:05 p.m. @ Coolray Field

Righty Tim Hudson will be looking for a repeat performance of his masterful, five-inning win against the Norfolk Tides a week ago. Huddy will be matching up against the Knights southpaw Charlie Leesman (1-1, 5.02) from Lawrenceville, Georgia. Be sure to catch to the voice of the G-Braves Tony Schiavone as he broadcasts the game live on 550 AM, WDUN.com or 102.9 FM.

Tickets for all Gwinnett Braves home games are on sale now at the Coolray Field Box Office. Call (678) 277-0340 or visit gwinnettbraves.com for more information.
