A crowd of 3,085 fans, at State Mutual Stadium, watched the Rome Braves shutout The West Virginia Power 2-0 in the second shortest game in Rome history. The game lasted one hour and fifty-four minutes and was over before the stadium lights were turned on.
Rome scratched the board first in the fourth inning when Kevin Josephina scored on an infield single
by Micah Johnson to give the Braves the 1-0 lead. Rome got their second run in the fourth when
Josephina notched an RBI single to score Lucas Herbert and make it a 2-0 game. The two runs were
all the Braves needed as Bryse Wilson was dominant from beginning to end, giving up only five hits,
with no walks and seven strikeouts on one hundred and five pitches to complete the shutout.
Wilson (6-4) earns the win for Rome while Eduardo Vera (3-4) takes the loss for West Virginia.
