The Gwinnett Braves defeated the Indianapolis Indians 2-1 Wednesday night at Coolray Field. Indians starting pitcher Jeremy Powell carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, but it was broken up by Gwinnett's Barbaro Canizares.

Gwinnett (24-28) remains in second place in the International League South, 5 1/2 games behind first-place Durham.

In the bottom of the seventh inning, Braves outfielder Mitch Jones hit his 10th home run of the season, a two-run home run to left that put the G-Braves ahead of the Indians, 2-1.

Todd Redmond (5-5), who threw his first no-hitter and the first in G-Braves history in his last outing at Louisville, struck out 10 in the victory. Craig Kimbrel earned his eighth save of the season, pitching a scoreless ninth.

Canizares (1-for-3, run) hit his first triple of the season in the bottom of the seventh inning. It was his first triple since August 3, 2009 at Columbus. Jones went 1-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored.
