WEDNESDAY’S GAME RECAP
Final: Rome 4, Lakewood 0
How it happened: An RBI single from Cristian Pache broke a scoreless duel in the sixth, and a few more insurance runs gave Rome a 4-0 victory against the BlueClaws Wednesday night. Two walks paired with an Isranel Wilson triple and Lucas Herbert double gave Rome a perfect cushion in the eighth. It’s Rome’s third shutout win this month.
Who did what for Rome: Wilson, playing in only his fifth game since being called up, recorded two hits including his triple in the eighth. Randy Ventura reached base twice with a single and walk, scored both times and recorded a stolen base. Pache also reached base two times, including his single that broke the tie game in the sixth inning.
On the mound: Tucker Davidson had his best night since becoming a starter in June, going six innings with no runs, five hits and four walks allowed. Davidson was clutch, getting out of three different innings with runners in scoring position. Meanwhile, Bladimer Matos struck out five and allowed one hit in two innings of relief, and Matt Custred retired the side in the ninth.
Next Game: The Braves play a doubleheader against Lakewood today at State Mutual Stadium, with Game One scheduled at 5 p.m.
