Gwinnett Braves: McLouth returns to action in loss
Placeholder Image

Atlanta Braves center fielder Nate McLouth was in the lineup for the Gwinnett Braves on Friday, but his presence wasn’t enough as the Charlotte Knights defeated the G-Braves 7-4 at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville.

McLouth, who has been on the disabled list since June 10 with concussion-like symptoms after colliding with right fielder Jason Heyward, went 1-for-3 with a single.

With Atlanta, McLouth was hitting just .176 (30-for-170) in 57 games. The length of his rehab assignment has yet to be determined.

The Knights pulled away in the third inning with six runs on  six hits off G-Braves starter Ryne Reynoso, who fell to 2-7 on the season.

Gwinnett was led by Joe Thurston’s two RBIs on 2-for-4 hitting. Freddie Freeman was also 2-for-4.

Gwinnett (42-47) has now lost five of its last six after winning seven in a row. The G-Braves will host Charlotte again today at 7:05, with left-hander Jose Ortegano taking the mound for Gwinnett.
