LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – The Gwinnett Stripers (70-57) scored four runs thanks to a pair of Jacksonville errors in the fourth inning, eventually cruising to a 7-2 victory over the Jumbo Shrimp (74-54) on Friday night at Coolray Field.

Decisive Play**s:** Trailing 1-0 entering the fourth inning, Gwinnett tied the contest as Maikel Franco reached on a throwing error by shortstop Bryson Brigman with two outs, scoring Travis Demeritte. Shea Langeliers then ripped an RBI double to give the Stripers a 2-1 lead. Yolmer Sanchez followed up with a two-run triple, making it 4-1.

Key Contributors**:** Demeritte smacked two doubles, going 3-for-4 with a run to lead the Stripers in hitting. Langeliers totaled two doubles, two runs, and one RBI in his third Triple-A game. Johan Camargo crushed his 19th home run in the sixth inning, a solo shot that gave the Stripers a 5-1 lead.
