Gwinnett Beats Durham 6-4: Sweeps Two Game Series

The Lead:  The Gwinnett Braves beat the Durham Bulls 6-4 at Durham Bulls Athletic Park in Durham, NC.  The Braves sweep the two game series and win the season series over the IL Southern Division Champions, 12-9.  With the win, the Braves are now 71-69 on the season with three games left to play.  The Bulls are 86-54.

It Was Over When: Braves center fielder Antone Richardson drew a bases loaded walk off of Durham reliever Jake McGee in the top of the eighth.  It broke a 4-all tie and gave the Braves a lead they would never lose.  Barbaro Canizares hit a solo homer in the ninth—his 13th of the season—to provide the final margin of victory.
