Braves’ Inciarte 0-for-5, Bryse Wilson rocked in Triple-A game

Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte suited up for the Gwinnett Stripers Thursday night in a rehab assignment in Charlotte.

Inciarte handled the designated hitter duties and went 0-for-5 with a walk. Gwinnett lost to the Knights 15-12.

He has been sidelined since May with a back injury.

Meanwhile, Bryse Wilson, expected to start for the Braves next week in Milwaukee, got rocked in the Triple-A game. He gave up nine earned runs and eight hits in 2 2/3 innings. 

Wilson was sent to Gwinnett following his most impressive start of the season so the major-league team could have another reliever in the bullpen. He allowed two runs in six innings in the Braves’ win over the Phillies on July 3.

Stripers catcher Alex Jackson went 4-for-5 with two homers and six RBIs against Charlotte. Jackson has 17 homers but is hitting .229.

Another Braves pitcher, Kevin Gausman, started for Double-A Mississippi at Jacksonville. Gausman allowed just three hits in six innings and the only run scored against him was unearned. He struck out three and did not issue any walks. Mississippi won 3-1 in 10 innings.

Gausman has been out since last month because of plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
