ROME


Capital City Sweeps Rome

Apparently the Rome Braves haven't solved their offensive problems just yet. Churning out only five hits in 11 innings, the Braves were swept by the Capital City Bombers in a semi-doubleheader Tuesday night in front of 1,252 at Capital City Stadium in Columbia, S.C.

DANVILLE


Danville was off on Tuesday. They will open a six game homestand Wednesday night against Princeton.

GULF COAST LEAGUE BRAVES


Braves Win Again 4-1

The Braves got another great pitching performance in their 3 run victory over the Expos in Orlando Tuesday. Eduardo Rosario won his first game of the season going five scoreless innings, allowing only one hit and striking out four.

Keith Eichas, who now has his average up to .400, was 2 for 4. Junior Guerra had a two run double in the second inning. Diory Hernandez also had a run scoring single.
