ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Tyler White snapped a scoreless tie in the top of the eighth inning with a towering solo home run to left field, leading the Gwinnett Stripers (59-61) to a 2-0 win over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (66-54) on Thursday night at Coca-Cola Park. Starter Kyle Muller and three relievers combined on a four-hit shutout.

Decisive Plays: Held to three hits over the first seven innings by Lehigh Valley left-hander Kent Emanuel, the Stripers jumped on left-hander Jace Fry (L, 4-2) in the eighth. White led off with his go-ahead homer (15) to left field, giving Gwinnett a 1-0 lead. Hendrik Clementina followed with a single and later scored on a two-out single by Hernan Perez to make it 2-0.

Key Contributors: Muller scattered four hits and two walks over 6.2 innings while striking out nine. Relievers Jesus Cruz (W, 2-1), Darren O'Day (H, 2), and Jacob Webb (S, 3) combined on 2.1 hitless frames to finish the game.
