Braves’ Blair gets loss in return to Triple-A Gwinnett

Braves pitching prospect Aaron Blair allowed seven hits and four runs in six innings Wednesday in Gwinnett’s 5-0 loss to the Indianapolis Indians in Triple-A baseball.

It was Blair’s first start since being demoted by the major-league team.

Blair walked the first batter he faced, then gave up a single. He retired the next two batters before issuing an intentional walk to load the bases. The next batter doubled.

Blair (3-1) walked four and struck out five.

Reid Brignac was 2-for-4 for Gwinnett (35-45).
