The Rome Braves took a 2-0 victory from the Charleston RiverDogs in game two of a four game series last night in Charleston, South Carolina. With the win, the Braves have reclaimed the top spot in the Southern Division of the South Atlantic League.
The Atlanta Braves beat the Florida Marlins 4-3 last night in game two of a three game series in Miami, Florida. Tim Hudson got the win for Atlanta. After giving up three runs in the first two innings (including a two-run homer to Jose Reyes in the second), he settled down and gave up only those three runs on five hits in seven innings of work. Craig Kimbrel got the save last night. The Braves scored one in the first, one in the third, one in the fourth and one in the seventh and ended up with the final victory, again, of 4-3 over the Miami Marlins.
