Rome Braves get the shut out, 5-0, over Dash. Media release: The Rome Braves (48-56) shut out the High-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, the Winston-Salem Dash (39-65), 5-0 on Thursday evening at State Mutual Stadium. Solid pitching for the Braves staff only surrendered two hits, adding to a strong night at the plate.
- What’s next: At home today through Sunday vs. Winston-Salem.
- Roster moves: The Rome Braves have announced a swap of infielders.
-Shortstop Vaughn Grissom (Braves No. 13 prospect) has been promoted to High-A Rome from the Low-A Augusta GreenJackets. Grissom has batted .313 in his second professional season through 75 games with Augusta. In 280 at-bats, Grissom has 15 doubles, four triples, and five home runs with 33 runs driven in.-Infielder Luke Waddell receives the call to Double-A Mississippi after just 21 games with Rome Braves and following being selected in the 5th round of the 2021 MLB Draft. In his brief stint, Waddell hit six home runs and drove in 13 runs while batting .304 and owning a .952 OPS.-The Rome roster now has 28 active, 3 injured, and 2 inactive players.
The Atlanta Braves cling to 6-5 lead over Rockies. Media release: When the Rockies’ Connor Joe belted a drive to deep center field in the seventh inning at Coors Field on Thursday night, the Braves’ precarious lead hung in the balance. The man chasing after the ball had only 11 career games in center on his resume.
“I could hear our bullpen [beyond the center-field wall] telling me as I got closer to the wall, kind of giving me some insight on that,” said Adam Duvall, who made a leaping grab at the fence to preserve Atlanta’s one-run advantage. “When I caught it, I didn’t think I was on the wall, but I ended up closer than I thought I was.”
The game was closer than the Braves would’ve liked, too. But thanks to Duvall’s defense, not to mention the key hit of the game — a 477-foot go-ahead homer in the fifth inning — and a stellar bullpen effort, Atlanta came away with a 6-5 victory against a Rockies club that entered the contest 43-22 at Coors Field.
- What’s next: At Rockies through Sunday.
- Roster: The # recalled LHP Sean Newcomb to Atlanta and placed RHP Chris Martin on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation.
