G-Braves split pair in Columbus

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- J.C. Boscan's RBI double broke a fourth-inning tie and sparked a four-run rally that lifted the Gwinnett Braves past the Columbus Clippers 7-4 Wednesday in the completion of a game suspended a day earlier by weather.

Later in the day, the G-Braves fell 3-2 in seven innings in the regularly-scheduled game despite a strong pitching outing from Eric Junge.

Luisa Durango added a two-run single and Jose Constanza chipped in an RBI single in the decisive fourth inning of the opener, while Buddy Carlyle (2-0), Cory Gearrin and Anthony Varvaro combined to limit Columbus to just a single run each over the next six innings to help the G-Braves hold the lead.

In the nightcap, Junge (3-2) gave up just one earned run and five hits with two strikeouts over six innings, but Matt LaPorta drove in a pair of runs, one on an error on his infield grounder in the first and another on an RBI single in the third, to lift Columbus to the win.

Stefan Gartrell homered for the second straight game for the G-Braves.
