The Gwinnett Braves dropped their second straight game and fell out of first place on Sunday, falling 4-3 on the road to the Indianapolis Indians.

The loss puts Gwinnett a half game behind Durham in the International League South division standings.

Erik Cordier (1-2) took the loss for the G-Braves, surrendering four runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings. Indianapolis was paced by former Braves prospect Andy Marte, who went 3 for 3 with two RBIs.

Gwinnett leadoff man and centerfielder Jose Constanza continued his tear atop the lineup, going 4 for 5 with his 17th stolen base to creep within two points of the International League lead in batting average at .356. Sunday was the Dominican Republic native’s fifth multi-hit game in the last eight contests, and his third game with four hits in the last six.

The G-Braves will play Indianapolis at 7:05 p.m. Monday, with Todd Redmond (4-6, 2.81) taking the mound.
