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.

Right-hander Todd Redmond (2-2, 3.04) looks to quiet down the Columbus bats in his team-leading sixth start tonight. He’ll go up against Clippers’ right-hander Corey Kluber (3-1, 2.67). First pitch from Huntington Park is scheduled for 7:05 PM, listen to the broadcast with Tony Schiavone on WDUN 550 AM / 102.9 FM and WDUN.com.
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.

Yet another day with not much to write about. That’s thanks to the rain that forced a suspension of last night’s G-Braves/Columbus Clippers game at Huntington Park in Columbus, OH. Stefan Gartrell homered for an early 1-0 Gwinnett lead, but Andy LaRoche answered with a homer off of right-hander Julio Teheran to knot the game at 1-1. When the rains came, J.C. Boscan was about to step to the plate with two outs and both Gartrell and Josh Wilson aboard. The action will pick up at that same spot at 5:35 PM and continue the full nine innings.
Following the completion of game one, there will be a seven-inning game two. That will pit G-Braves’ right-hander Eric Junge (3-1, 3.52) againt Clippers’ right-hander Zach McAllister (2-1, 3.00).
