G-Braves Notes for 5.3.12 at Columbus

The rain finally took a break last night in Columbus as the G-Braves were able to finish Tuesday’s suspended game and get game two in as well against the Clippers.  J.C. Boscan, Luis Durango and Jose Constanza all recorded RBI hits in a four-run fourth that led Gwinnett to a 7-4 win in game one, but game two saw the G-Braves tie a season high with four errors in a 3-2 loss in seven innings.  Stefan Gartrell had himself a day, going 5-for-9 with two home runs (his second and third on the year) and three RBI, while pitching proved to be strong once again.  Right-hander Buddy Carlyle improved to 2-0 with his relief win in game one, while right-hander Eric Junge went the full 6.0 innings in a tough-luck loss in game two.  Junge (L, 3-2), yielded three runs but just one earned, extending his quality start streak to three while seeing his winning streak snapped at three.

Tonight, the G-Braves attempt to secure at least a series split against the Clippers with left-hander Yohan Flande (1-0, 0.90) on the mound.  Flande saw his 19.2-inning scoreless streak end in his last outing on April 27 at Toledo, but will look to start a new streak as he faces the top hitting team in the International League (Columbus is hitting .283 this season).  Right-hander Kevin Slowey (1-2, 4.85) will start for the Clippers.
