Former Rome Brave and Atlanta Braves' pitcher Mike Soroka was back with his old team Friday night when the Rome Braves took on the Columbia Fireflies in a weather-delayed matchup at State Mutual Stadium.

Soroka was in Rome as part of a rehab assignment after being placed on the 10-day disabled list. He pitched 3 2/3 innings and struck out three as the Braves led 3-0 when he left the game. 

Soroka was part of the 2016 Rome Braves team that won the South Atlantic League championship.
