At the plate: Gwinnett’s Stefan Gartrell hit a solo homer in the second, and Luis Nunez (2-for-4) drove home the G-Braves’ other run with a two-out single in the fourth. Five other G-Braves had a hit apiece, including a double by Matt Pagnozzi.

On the mound: G-Braves starter Omar Poveda (5-5) gave up three runs on seven hits in seven innings. He walked two and struck out four. Buffalo starter Todd Redmond (3-1), a former G-Brave, struck out nine in five innings.
