Chris Resop pitched 6 2/3 innings and only allowed two earned runs, but it wasn’t enough as the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves lost 2-1 to the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees on Saturday night at Coolray Field. He threw a career-high 106 pitches for the G-Braves.
With the loss, Gwinnett falls to 7 1/2 games behind the Durham Bulls in the International League’s Southern Division.
Shortstop Brandon Hicks and J.C. Boscan each had two hits for Gwinnett (25-30), and Freddie Freeman drove in a run and walked three times in his return from a strained right knee injury.
Trailing 1-0 in the seventh, Scranton-Wilkes Barre took the lead with a two-run home run from David Winfree. Gwinnett plays host to the Triple-A Yankees at 2 p.m. today at Coolray Field.
