Stripers Can't Solve McGreevy in 4-0 Shutout Loss to Memphis

By Jack Johnson


Michael McGreevy stifled the Gwinnett Stripers (1-2) over 7.0 scoreless innings in a rough offensive night for the Stripers as the Memphis Redbirds (2-1) handed Gwinnett a 4-0 loss on Thursday night at Coolray Field. The Stripers were shutout for just the third time this season. 


Decisive Plays:  Memphis broke out to a 2-0 lead in the third inning on a two-run single by Jordan Walker. The lead was doubled in the fourth inning on an RBI triple by Thomas Saggese and an RBI sacrifice fly by Nick Dunn.  

Key Contributors: Nacho Alvarez Jr. (2-for-4) had the only multi-hit night for Gwinnett while Drake Baldwin (1-for-4, 2B) recorded the only extra-base hit. Both Hayden Harris (1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO) and Domingo Gonzalez (1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO) made their Triple-A debuts and pitched a combined 2.0 scoreless frames of relief. For Memphis, Walker had a two-RBI night and a double while Saggese had the other extra-base hit with a triple. McGreevy (7.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 8 SO) turned in his longest scoreless outing of the season. 

Noteworthy: Alvarez Jr. recorded his eighth multi-hit game in 14 total contests at the Triple-A level in his debut season. Luke Waddell saw his eight-game hitting streak snapped, going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. Gwinnett turned a season-high four double plays on defense.

LHP Dylan Dodd (2-6, 4.80 ERA) will start for Gwinnett against RHP Michael McGreevy (3-7​, 4.95 ERA) for the Redbirds. Georgia Peaches Weekend continues at Coolray Field as the Stripers will transform into specialty uniforms honoring the state of Georgia and its moniker.
