G-Braves Notes for 5.4.12 at Columbus

The Gwinnett Braves (18-9) close out the eight-game road trip tonight, looking for a series split with the Columbus Clippers (15-12) after falling in a 12-8 slugfest last night.  Josh Wilson, J.C. Boscan and Stefan Gartrell all homered for the G-Braves, but left-hander Yohan Flande was shelled for seven runs (six earned) in his first loss of the year and the bullpen surrendered five more runs to put the game out of reach.

Wilson ans Boscan went back-to-back for solo homers off right-hander Kevin Slowey in the second inning, becoming the first G-Braves’ tandem to do so this year.  Gartrell, meanwhile, stayed red hot with his third home run of the series.  He’s hitting .421 (8-for-19) with the three blasts and eight RBI on a five-game hitting streak.  Ernesto Mejia also contributed, going 1-for-5 with a two-run double to extend his team RBI lead to 17.
