(in Charleston, S.C.)
How it happened:
A day after a shutout, three Rome pitchers combined to hold the RiverDogs to just three hits. Rome tied the game at 1-1 in the third, then plated three runs in the fifth inning to take a commanding 4-1 lead.
Who did what for Rome: William Beckwith drove in all four of the Braves’ runs, and he
finished the day with a home run and a double.
On the mound: A.J. Holland got the start after being activated from the disabled list. Holland threw four innings and allowed Charleston’s one run. David Filak came out of the bullpen and earned his fifth win after allowing no hits in 2 2/3 innings. John Cornely closed out the game to earn his seventh save.
Game notes: The Braves (19-14) now have a two-game lead in the South standings.
Next Game: Rome faces Charleston again tonight at 7:05 p.m., for game three of their series with the RiverDogs.
