The G-Braves Minute

The Gwinnett Braves (8-10) failed to make it three in a row, dropping game three of the four-game set to the Charlotte Knights, 4-3 on Sunday afternoon in front of 6,676 at Coolray Field. The largest crowd of the 2013 season came out to see first baseman Freddie Freeman, as he took the field
in his final rehab start for the Gwinnett Braves.

Freeman went 0-for-2 with an HBP before leaving in the seventh to get on a plane and head to Denver, CO to meet the rest of his Atlanta teammates.

The G-Braves ended their current two-game winning streak, as Dusty Hughes (0-2) gave up the game-winner in the seventh inning. After giving up a single and retiring the next hitter, Hughes gave up two walks and HBP to allow a run to cross the plate, making it 5-4 Knights.

Offensively, the Braves could not get going against the Knights bullpen, as they threw five innings of shutout baseball. Deunte Heath (1-0) picked up the victory, while Ramon Troncoso recorded the save.

League Leaders: Tyler Pastornicky leads the league in hits (26)… Joe Terdoslavich leads the league in doubles (11), at bats (74) and total bases (46)… Ernesto Mejia rounds up the league leaders, as he leads the IL in homers (7) and RBI (20)…

Tonight’s matchup features Yohan Flande (0-0, 5.23) and Simon Castro (0-2, 6.88)
