Friday didn’t go well for the Braves and it wasn’t a good night for their Triple-A affiliate, the Gwinnett Stripers, either.
The Stripers were no-hit by Columbus in Lawrenceville. The Braves lost to the Red Sox 6-2 in Boston.
Shane Bieber tossed seven no-hit innings for the Clippers in a rain-shortened 7-0 win at Coolray Field.
Bieber faced the minimum 21 batters over the seven innings and struck out seven and walked none. Xavier Avery was the only Gwinnett player to reach base in the game, taking first base on a fielding error by Clippers’ shortstop Eric Stamets with one out in the third inning. Avery was thrown out stealing.
Anibal Sanchez, making his second Gwinnett start while on rehab from the Braves, allowed just one hit while striking out four over three innings.
The Stripers are 19-27.
