McCann 1-for-3 in rehab for G-Braves in loss to Pawtucket

A stunning Pawtucket comeback led the Red Sox to a 5-3 victory over the Gwinnett Braves on Friday night at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville.

The game was highlighted by the return to action of Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann, who was on a rehab assignment.  Playing as a designated hitter, he went 1-for-3 with an RBI.

The G-Braves (66-54) remain in second place in the International League South at two games behind Durham.

Gwinnett is also second in the Wild Card race by a 1.5 game margin behind Lehigh Valley. The Red Sox (68-51) remain in first place in the IL North.

McCann’s second-ever trip to Gwinnett (he also played in a rehab game on May 7, 2009) put a nice charge in the G-Braves offense, and he was removed from the game in the 6th inning.

G-Braves pitcher Julio Teheran went seven innings, yielding two runs, walking none and striking out five no-decision.
