G-Braves: Medlen shuts down Durham
Placeholder Image

LAWRENCEVILLE — Durham scored in the first inning for the first time this year on Ray Sadler’s RBI single, but the Gwinnett Braves answered and defeated the Bulls 5-2 on Monday night.

Sadler’s single off Kris Medlen (2-0) scored Jon Weber, who had doubled and moved to third on Reid Brignac’s flyout to center.

The Braves (5-7) would answer, batting around against Mitch Talbot (1-1) to score four times. Brooks Conrad singled to right to start the inning, and after Joe Borchard lined to center, J.C. Holt tripled into the right field corner, tying the score at 1-1. The next five hitters singled, with Clint Sammons, Wes Timmons and Brandon Jones picking up the RBIs for a 4-1 advantage. Talbot then settled down, allowing just two more base runners over the next 3Ãinnings.

Durham cut the deficit to 4-2 in the fourth on John Jaso’s triple. However, the Bulls had a runner at third with one out and the infield back in the fourth and sixth, and couldn’t get either run across.

Gwinnett took advantage of a two-out walk to score an insurance run in the seventh. The Bulls managed just one hit over the final four innings against the Braves bullpen.
