The Rome Braves open home stand vs. Winston-Salem with a 6-1 win Tuesday. Media release: Rome would open up the scoring with a Vaughn Grissom single into center field that would score Beau Philip. Andrew Hoffmann would cruise for the first three innings before hitting a bump in the top of the fourth when Tyler Osik signled into center to knot up the score at one.

Both pitching staffs would fall into a groove for the next two innings before the Braves would put the Braves out in front thanks to a two-out Christian Robinson single that would put Rome up three runs to one. Cody Milligan would tack on one more run after reaching on a fielding error by Winston-Salem.

Andrew Hoffmann would call it a day after going five full innings and only giving up one run on three hits while striking out eight. Lisandro Santos would come on in relief of Hoffmann and continue a streak of dominant pitching out of the bullpen. In four innings on Tuesday, Santos would surrender no runs on two hits while striking out four. Santos has yet to allow an earned run through sixteen innings pitched in eight games.

Landon Stephens would make his return to AdventHealth Stadium known in the bottom of the seventh with his ninth homer of the year that sailed into the trees beyond the left field fence. Stephens has now hit eight of his nine longballs within the friendly confines of AdventHealth Stadium.

Rome would tack on one more run in the form of a Vaughn Grissom single before Lisandro Santos would retire the side in order in the top of the ninth.

Atlanta Braves fall 9-4 to Red Sox ; rematch tonight. Off Thursday; home vs. Padres through Sunday. Game updates / Schedule
