Gwinnett Braves Playoff Recap: Gwinnett 8, Scranton WB 5

New, 8 comments

In game 3 Gwinnett managed to get some offense and at the very least take one game in the series.

On the day he was named Baseball America's Minor League Player of the Year, Jason Heyward was a big factor in the game. He had a 2 run single in the 3rd inning (which saw the Braves score 5). He also walked 3 times and scored 3 runs to go along with a K. Not a bad outing at all. Diory Hernandez also chipped in with 3 hits on the night, with a double 3 RBI.

Bobby Brownlie got the start for Gwinnett but he didn't make it out of the 3rd inning after allowing 4 runs all off of 2 HRs he gave up. The bullpen came in, however, and pitched 6.1 innings allowing only 1 run on 3 hits.

The series will pick back up tomorrow night with Jonny Venters taking the mound for Gwinnett and Zach McAllister toeing the rubber for the Yankees. McAllister has been pretty solid year and the Braves could have a tough time scoring runs against him. Lets keep our fingers crossed.
