Rome starter Kolby Allard gave up five runs to Greenville Thursday night on the road, and it would be all the Drive would need to beat the Braves 5-4.
Allard went six innings, giving up five earned runs on six hits. He struck out five and walked four in the outing, giving up on homer. Matt Custred and Oriel Caicedo each had scoreless outings in relieve for Rome.
The usual suspect stayed hot on offense for the Braves. Austin Riley homered in the game, going 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI. Justin Ellison had a 2-for-4 night as well with a home run of his own. Carlos Castro also went 2-for-4. Darien McLemore and Leudys Baez also had a hit apiece in the game.
