Carolina Mudcats 0, Myrtle Beach Pelicans 1 (suspended, not final)
The game was suspended due to lightning at the end of the third inning. The Mudcats were getting no hit by the Pelicans, but the only exciting part as it relates to the Braves was Connor Lien walked in his two plate appearances in the game thus far. The game has been moved as a double header tomorrow afternoon.

Rome finally wins one in extras for once! It's been awhile since Rome has won in extras...kinda refreshing. Rome jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the 4th with RBI double by Connor Oliver and a run scoring groundout by Matt Tellor. The GreenJackets retaliated with two runs of their own. Rome took Augusta into extras, and the Braves plated the first run in extras with a RBI single by Omar Obregon to score Stephen Gaylor who reached on a fielding error earlier in the inning. Augusta answered with a run of their own with a RBI double, but the Braves put a two spot in the 10th to cap off the win. Erison Mendez was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, and Gaylor followed with a walk to score the second run. The Braves pitching allowed three runs on nine hits combine (seven of those from Yean Carlos Gil). They walked six batters while striking out eight GreenJackets.
