Suns reliever Beau Dannemiller came on in the ninth and retired the side for his first save of the season. The Suns (5-5) trailed 1-0 in the fifth inning and used a hit-and-run to advance Nick Alvarez to third on a base hit to the left side by Young. Alvarez scored on a wild pitch. Young and Russell Martin had two hits each. Gonzalez (2-1) earned the win, throwing one scoreless frame in the eighth and Beau Dannemiller earned his first save.

COLUMBUS, Georgia--The Rome Braves knocked a Catfish starter out early for the third consecutive game and defeated Columbus 15-6 on Sunday. Starter Landestoy Troncoso (0-2) was the latest Braves victim. He couldn't get out of the second inning before giving up eight runs on seven hits. Rome was up 8-0 after two. Columbus (2-8) shortstop Lucas May dropped the ball on an underhand toss from second baseman Brandon Carter on a potential double play ball that helped lead to the second big inning. Rome scored four in the first and second and seven runs in the ninth. Catfish pitchers finished the Rome series allowing 39 runs after winning the home-opener 4-3 Thursday night. The only Columbus starter that has an ERA under 4 is Brandon Weeden, who has a 3.12 ERA. The Catfish pitchers also entered Sunday's game with a 5.68 team ERA, worst in the South Atlantic League. However, left-hander Wesley Wright pitched 3.2 innings and allowed only two hits Sunday. Carlos Alvarez also pitched effectively with two scoreless innings. Catcher Juan Apodaca was a double short of the cycle. He went 3-for-4 with a home run, triple and three RBI after entering with a 0-12 slump to begin the season. Blake DeWitt was the only other Catfish with a multiple-hit afternoon.--Russell Moore.
