For the second consecutive night, the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves pulled past the Norfolk Tides in 11 innings at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville. The G-Braves (53-41) are riding a five-game winning streak.

Diory Hernandez had a walk-off, bases-loaded single for Gwinnett in the 11th inning and a 4-3 win, just one day after his walk-off single against the Tides in the 11th inning on Friday.

G-Braves starting pitcher Mike Minor threw six innings and allowed eight hits, two walks and tallied seven strikeouts. Juan Abreu and Jairo Asencio combined for four innings of scoreless relief for Gwinnett.

Ruben Gotay led the G-Braves with two hits, including a two-run single to send the game into extra innings.

Hernandez and Mauro Gomez each added an RBI.

Today, Gwinnett and Norfolk wrap up their series at 2 p.m. at Coolray Field. With 996,188 fans that have walked through the gates in three seasons in Gwinnett, they expect to cross the 1,000,000 mark today.

That lucky fan will receive a prize pack, including two free Suntrust Club tickets to an upcoming Atlanta Braves game and Gwinnett Braves tickets for the remainder of the season.
