LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - The Gwinnett Stripers (69-77) rode a two-RBI performance from Greyson Jenista to a 4-1 win over the Louisville Bats (58-90) on Monday night at Coolray Field.

Decisive Plays: The Stripers broke a scoreless deadlock in the fourth inning when Jenista lined a pitch from Levi Stoudt into shallow left field to plate Rylan Bannon. The score held at 1-0 until Stephen Piscotty's RBI single off Jay Jackson (BS, 3, W, 2-0) tied the game in the top of the eighth. Jenista did it again in the bottom of the eighth, slapping a hard ground ball past the shortstop to score Bannon and put the Stripers back on top for good. Hendrik Clementina provided insurance with a two-run single later in the frame.

Key Contributors: Jenista knocked in two runs and scored once on a 2-for-4 showing. Bannon reached three times and scored twice on a 1-for-2 night. Starter Silvino Bracho and reliever Odalvi Javier (H, 2) tossed 2.0 scoreless frames each. Michael Tonkin (SV, 16) tossed a perfect ninth inning to earn the save. For Louisville, Piscotty went 2-for-3 with an RBI.
