  • Rome Braves get 4-2 win over Augusta; goes for series sweep. Media release: The Rome Braves defeated the Augusta GreenJackets 4-2 Wednesday afternoon at State Mutual Stadium before a crowd of 2,407. Rome started right where they left off from last night, taking an early 2-0 lead in the first inning, thanks to an RBI double by Brett Cumberland and an RBI single by Anthony Concepcion. The Greenjackets countered in the top of the second with a Michael Bernal RBI single to make it a 2-1 game. The Braves then came back to score one in the fifth after Cristian Pache scored on a double play, and one in the sixth on a Kevin Josephina sacrifice fly to make it a 4-1 game. Augusta scored a run in the ninth but Brandon White was able to shut them down after that for the 4-2 victory. Braves starter Ian Anderson pitched well, going five innings giving up one run on three hits. Anderson (4-4) picked up the win for the Braves while Garrett Williams takes the loss for Augusta. Brandon White (6) picks up the save.
