Gwinnett Braves 3, Charlotte Knights 4

Sean Gilmartin made his AAA debut last night, and while it wasn't too pretty, it was still a quality start for the Braves 1st rounder. Gilmartin went 7 innings allowing 3 earned runs on 5 hits and 3 walks. Gilmartin struck out 4 over the 98 pitch outing, but took the tough loss. Stefan Gartrell went 2-4 with his 17th homer of the year, accounting for almost all of the Gwinnett offense by himself. Ernesto Mejia and Josh Wilson both posted 2-hit days as well.

Randall Delgado will make his second AAA start tonight.
