The bullpen tried to give this one away giving up 5 runs from 6-8th innings, but Valdez came in to get one in the 8th and 3 in the 9th. If the bullpen in Atlanta hadn't stabilized itself the last few days you would have seen him in Atlanta. Matt Wieters was kept in check for most of the night with only one hit and an RBI.

The second straight good start from Edgar Osuna. I like this guy a lot and I think he could surprise some people this year. Cody Johnson hit another homer. He went like 8 straight games without homering and now has one in two straight games. He really is an all or nothing guy. He is now at 19 hits with 13 for extra bases. The problem is he is striking out even more than he was last season. Last season he was at 37-38% on his Ks. This year he is at 42%. GOOD GOD.
Rome 2, Lexington 4
- S. Shults 1-4 2B, K
- S. Sime 2-4 3B
- B. Schlehuber 1-3 2B, BB, K
Richard Sullivan actually had a decent game here going the distance (8 innings in this case) and not walking any to go along with his 5 strike outs. Schlehuber did throw out 1/2 base stealers and Samuel Sime committed his 8th error of the season.
