The right-handed Jurrjens (W, 3-2) needed just 108 pitches to get through eight innings of baseball, and did so without yielding a walk all afternoon. He struck out five while surrendering just three hits in the game en route to his first win since May 11. Cory Gearrin (S, 6) recorded his fourth consecutive save as he retired the side in a perfect ninth inning. Gearrin struck out two of the three batters he faced.
Both teams struggled to score any runs and were locked in a pitcher's duel in front of 4,169 fans. However, the G-Braves pushed across the lone run of the day in the sixth when Marrero laced a ball down the right field line. Rochester right fielder Wilkin Ramirez hesitated to throw the ball back in to the infield, allowing Mejia to score from first base. Marrero's first triple of the season gave Gwinnett a 1-0 lead.
The G-Braves had a promising start to then afternoon when the first two runners of the game reached base in the bottom of the first inning. All would be for naught as Stefan Gartrell's blistering shot to left field was caught by a diving Michael Hollimon and turned into a double play. The G-Braves recorded three hits in the inning but couldn't come up with anything to show for it. Felix Pie and Mejia were the only Gwinnett players to record multiple-hit games on a day that saw the club register seven total hits.
Spot starter Brendan Wise turned in 3.0 scoreless innings for Rochester. Reliever Casey Fien (L, 0-5) yielded the only run of the day over 2.0 innings of work. Carlos Gutierrez and left-hander Tyler Robertson combined for 3.0 scoreless innings for Rochester.
Sean Burroughs went 2-for-3, accounting for two of the three hits for the Red Wings on the day.
