Gwinnett gets walk-off homer from Gartrell

ST. LOUIS -- Outfielder Stefan Gartrell blasted a walk-off home run in the 10th inning to lead Triple-A Gwinnett to a 5-3 win over Buffalo on Thursday. Starting pitcher Todd Redmond allowed just one run and struck out 10 in 6 2/3 innings.

Outfielder Jose Constanza had two hits and two stolen bases in helping the first-place Braves improve to 20-13.

Meanwhile, starting pitcher Gary Moran allowed just one earned run in five innings as Double-A Mississippi of the Southern League dropped a 4-3, 10-inning decision to Pensacola on Thursday. Moran, a former pitcher for the River City Rascals of the Independent Frontier League, struck out six.

Outfielder/catcher Evan Gattis ranks second in all of Minor League baseball with 13 home runs. Gattis, recently promoted to Mississippi, leads the team in home runs with four, despite only 10 games as the Double-A level.
