Max Fried Tosses Scoreless Rehab Start as Stripers Secure Win


Max Fried struck out the first batter he faced and picked off the first baserunner he allowed over 1.1 innings in a scoreless rehab start on Sunday (Paul Daniel)

Atlanta Braves’ ace Max Fried struck out the first batter he faced and dealt 1.1 scoreless innings in a rehab start, and the Gwinnett Stripers (37-49) put up eight runs in the sixth and turned a triple play in the seventh to beat the Omaha Storm Chasers (41-42) 8-1 on Sunday afternoon at Coolray Field.


Decisive Plays: With the game still scoreless entering the bottom of the sixth, Vaughn Grissom led off with a shallow pop fly to right that landed for a leadoff single. From there, the Stripers drew two walks to load the bases and Joe Hudson was hit by a pitch by Brad Keller (L, 0-2) to give Gwinnett a 1-0 lead. The Stripers scored twice more on two bases-loaded walks, once on a fielder’s choice, once on an error and twice on a two-run single by Jesus Aguilar to leave the frame with an 8-0 lead. Omaha got its only run on a Tucker Bradley RBI double in the seventh to make it 8-1. The Stripers turned a 5-4-3 triple play to end the inning.

Key Contributors: Grissom (2-for-4, double) had the only multi-hit game for Gwinnett while Aguilar (1-for-4, 2 RBIs) drove in a pair with his only hit of the day. Allan Winans (6.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 SO) pitched the bulk of the game for the Stripers and collected the win. For Omaha, John Rave (1-for-4, double), Logan Porter (1-for-3, double, BB), and Bradley (1-for-3, double) all had extra-base hits.

Noteworthy: The 5-4-3 triple play included Daniel Robertson, Grissom, and Joe Dunand and was the seventh in Gwinnett history (first since July 1, 2022). Grissom collected his team-best 24th multi-hit game of the season. The Stripers had more walks (5) than hits (2) in their eight-run sixth inning. Gwinnett finished 9-2 in its first-ever season series against Omaha.
