Saturday night starts an 11-game homestand in 10 days for the Gwinnett Braves and what better way to start their extended stay in Georgia than with Todd Redmond (2-2, 3.04) on the mound? The right hander is seeking his third win, while continuing to role his way through the IL with his league-leading 34 strikeouts. The G-Braves hurler will match-up against the Charlotte Knights southpaw Charlie Leesman (1-3, 3.68) for a 7:05 p.m. first pitch from Coolray Field.

Stefan Gartrell is on fire right now for the G-Braves, as he has raised his batting average from .165 to .209 in a matter of days. The power-hitting righty has blasted a long ball in each of the teams’ last three games and will be seeking his fourth home run in four games tonight in Lawrenceville.

Starters: Charlotte Knights (14-14, 2nd) vs Gwinnett (18-9, 1st) Saturday, May 5 @ 7:05 p.m. @ Coolray Field

The G-Braves and Knights season series is tied, 3-3, at three wins per team this season. This two-game set will mark the third series of seven between Gwinnett and Charlotte during the 2012 season. The next time these two will play one another will be part of a 4-game home-and-home series to start June. On June 1-2 the G-Braves will be playing hosting to the Knights once again for two games from Georgia. Then, June 3-4 the G-Braves will head to Charlotte for another 2-game set with the Knights on the back end of their home-and-home series’.

Be sure to catch to the voice of the G-Braves Tony Schiavone as he broadcasts the game live on 550 AM, 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 for more information.

Too bad Todd Redmond ruined this game for the G Braves. His pitching has really not shown up so far not to mention he is a giant racist scum bag. Not quite the type of player I want representing my team. I guess Karma is catching up to him.
