ROME, GA (August 11th, 2023) – The Winston-Salem Dash fell in game four of a six game series against the Rome Braves, 5-3, Friday night at AdventHealth Stadium.

Winston-Salem (47-54) found itself trailing early after Rome (49-57) took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first.

Following the error, Jacob Burke stood at second representing the go-ahead run, and Andy Atwood gave Winston-Salem the lead making it 2-1.

Brooks Gosswein worked a clean sixth inning, but in the seventh, the Braves got to Kole Ramage. With two runners on, David McCabe doubled bringing home a pair of runs, tying the game, 3-3.

Tied at three, the Dash went down in order in the eighth, and in the bottom half of the frame, a pair of runners came home to score for Rome following two errors and the Braves took a 5-3 lead into the ninth.

Trailing by two, Loidel Chapelli singled with two outs bringing the tying run to the plate, but Rome pitcher Rob Griswold induced a pop up to close out the win for the Braves, 5-3.
