G-Braves back on winning track

PAWTUCKET, R.I. — After a trip through Syracuse where weather kept the Gwinnett Braves from finishing one and playing another game, the team found better weather, and results, in Pawtucket.

The G-Braves ended a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 win over the PawSox, the team's fourth win in five games against the Boston Red Sox Class AAA affiliate.

Chris Resop (3-1) got the win for Gwinnett, allowing one run over five innings while striking out six. Reliever Michael Dunn earned his first save, pitching the final 11⁄3 innings in relief.

The G-Braves pitching staff slowed down the rehabbing Mike Cameron, giving the Red Sox major leaguer just one hit in three at-bats. No Pawtucket hitter had more than one hit.

Gwinnett got five hits combined from the middle of the order with Gregor Blanco going 3-for-4 and Joe Thurston going 2-for-4. Blanco also doubled and drove in a run, showing the former leadoff hitter can be productive anywhere in the lineup. Brent Clevlen (0-for-2) scored two runs for Gwinnett.
