Huascar Ynoa was dominant over 7.0 no-hit innings as the Gwinnett Stripers (28-27) opened the road trip with a 7-0 win over the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (28-27) on Tuesday night at 121 Financial Ballpark. Jacksonville ended the no-hitter against Brandyn Sittinger with one out in the eighth, but he and Brad Brach finished off a one-hit shutout.
Decisive Plays: Gwinnett took a decisive 2-0 lead on Chadwick Tromp's two-run single off left-hander Will Stewart (L, 0-1) in the second inning. RBI doubles by Joe Dunand and Braden Shewmake helped extend the lead to 6-0 in the fifth, and Drew Waters blasted an opposite-field solo home run (3) in the sixth to make it 7-0.
Key Contributors: Ynoa (W, 2-2) matched a career high with 7.0 innings, holding Jacksonville to three walks while striking out six. Sittinger saw the no-no snapped on Bryson Brigman's one-out double in the eighth, but added a scoreless frame. Brach worked around a one-out walk in the ninth. Waters finished 4-for-5 with the homer, two runs, and one RBI. Dunand and Shewmake each went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs, and Tromp went 1-for-4 with two RBIs.
Noteworthy: The one hit allowed was the fewest in a game by Gwinnett pitchers this season, paving the way for the Stripers' fourth shutout win of the year. The club's last no-hitter remains June 30, 2016 at Louisville, a combined effort by Rob Wooten, Matt Marksberry, and Jose Ramirez.
