Gwinnett (57-58) has won six games in a row.

The Stripers scored the lone run early when Hernan Perez doubled and scored on Alex Dickerson’s groundout in the second inning.

Gwinnett managed to escape multiple jams, with reliever Thomas Burrows navigating a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the top of the sixth. Jesus Cruz, Silvino Bracho, and Jay Jackson finished off the shutout.
