The Gwinnett Braves snapped a three-game losing streak and 23 consecutive innings without scoring a run with a 7-4 victory against the Syracuse Chiefs on Sunday at Coolray Field.

In a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett, Takashi Saito threw one inning and allowed only one hit. Ryne Reynoso (1-5), who had lost a franchise-record six games coming into the day, notched his first win for the G-Braves by throwing 3 1/3 innings and allowed an earned run.

Each Gwinnett batter save one player got a hit, including catcher J.C. Boscan, who had his first home run of the season and finished with a pair of RBI. Boscan also threw out two runners on steal attempts.

First baseman Freddie Freeman finished 2-for-4 with two RBI, extending his season-high hitting streak to nine games. Third baseman Wes Timmons went 1-for-1 with his 11th steal of the season and reached base four of his five times at the plate.

Gwinnett plays host to the Buffalo Bison at 7:05 p.m. tonight at Coolray Field.
