G-Braves win 5th straight with 4-0 shutout

POSTED: May 30, 2012 12:16 a.m.

Yohan Flande threw seven three-hit, shutout innings to lead the Gwinnett Braves to a 4-0 win over Lehigh Valley on Tuesday at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville.

Anthony Varvaro and Cory Gearrin combined on the three-hit shutout, giving the International League South-leading G-Braves their fifth straight victory.

Flande (2-3) cruised through the first seven innings, surrendering just three hits and one walk, while striking out five. The lefty led Gwinnett to its seventh shutout of the season. Four of the seven have been started by Flande.

The G-Braves’ offense came alive in the fourth inning, when they crossed the plate three times.

Collin DeLome was hit by a pitch and Stefan Gartrell followed with a single. Gwinnett loaded the bases when Joey Terdoslavich reached on a fielder’s choice and Jose Yepez was subsequently hit by a pitch from IronPigs’ starter Pat Misch, forcing in DeLome for the first run. Josh Wilson followed with an RBI single to left, and Monday’s hero, Lance Zawadzki, capped the inning with an RBI groundout.

Terdoslavich hit an RBI single in the fifth to make it a 4-0 game.

Misch (3-7) took the loss for Lehigh Valley with four runs allowed, two earned, on five hits over seven innings.
Gartrell posted the only multi-hit game for either side, going 2 for 4 with a run scored. After hitting just .165 in April, Gartrell is batting .340 in May, raising his season average to .263.

The G-Braves (32-20) continue their 10-game homestand with the third of four games against Lehigh Valley (28-24) tonight at Coolray Field. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Right-hander Eric Junge (3-4, 4.44 ERA) is set to start for Gwinnett against lefty Tom Cochran (2-1, 4.55 ERA).
