Bryse Wilson struggles in hometown debut

Starting in his hometown for the first time in his professional career Bryse Wilson was not his best.

The Braves’ 21-year-old pitching prospect allowed four runs on seven hits over 4 innings, walking one and striking out two in Gwinnett’s, 6-2, loss to Durham Sunday in North Carolina. 

Wilson is now 0-3 in five starts, with a 5.68 ERA, since starting the season in Atlanta. 

Left fielder Adam Duvall finished 1-for-4 with an RBI — his eighth of the road trip — while third baseman Pedro Florimon was 1-for-2 with a double and an RBI. 

Travis Demeritte went 1-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to 11 games, the longest active streak on the club. 

Reliever Jonathan Aro yielded two runs on three hits over two innings on his Stripers debut.

Atlanta left-hander Jonny Venters struck out two over a scoreless rehab inning. Venters has pitched six scoreless innings over six rehab outings since April 25.
