Braves center fielder Cristian Pache may be finding his swing in Triple-A.
Pache, who is hitting .348, homered twice and drove in four runs and went 3-for-5 as the Gwinnett Stripers (18-15) routed the host Memphis Redbirds 11-0 on Thursday night.
Pache is hitting .348.
Johan Camargo crushed a two-run home run (his fourth for Gwinnett) to make it 3-0. Veteran catcher Jonathan Lucroy added a three-run homer in the seventh.
Pache’s homers were his first two this season in a Stripers’ uniform. It was his first multi-homer game as a pro.
Camargo and Orlando Arcia both had four hits.
Six pitchers combined on a two-hit shutout: Connor Johnstone, Tanner Roark (W, 1-1), Jesse Biddle, Ty Tice, Chasen Bradford and Victor Arano. Bradford extended his scoreless-innings streak to 15 over nine appearances.
