Gwinnett Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson was dominant through six innings, but the G-Braves fell 8-1 to Syracuse on Tuesday at Gwinnett Stadium.
The Chiefs improve to 14-9 and Gwinnett falls to 11-15.
Hanson recorded 10 strikeouts and allowed just two hits, one of them a solo home run off the bat of Ryan Langerhans that tied the game 1-1 in the fifth inning.
G-Braves reliever Many Acosta picked up his third loss of the season after surrendering the go-ahead home run, once again by Langerhans, in the seventh inning. In all, Gwinnett relievers Acosta, Francisley Bueno and Luis Valdez allowed seven runs on eight hits in three innings.
Langerhans led the Chiefs with a pair of home runs and four RBIs and was 3-for-3 at the plate.
J.C. Boscan put the Braves tied 1-1 in the fourth inning that plated Van Pope. But Langerhans’ home runs in the fifth and seventh innings put the Chiefs ahead permanently. Boscan was 2-for-4 with an RBI for the G-Braves.
