Atlanta Braves rookie power-hitter Evan Gattis doubled in four at bats Saturday night in his second rehab game with the Gwinnett Braves. The 26-year old Texan, like he did Friday night, hit third in the line-up. The G-Braves lost for the second consecutive night to Durham, this time by an 8-1 score.  Gwinnett managed only five hits in the game.

It is not known at this time if Gattis will play rehab games with another Braves minor league affiliate before h...
