The Rome Braves loss to the Crawdads on Friday night at State Mutual Stadium was decided in the top of the first inning, as Hickory scored all three of their runs. That was all it would take.
Patrick Weigel took the loss for Rome, allowing two earned runs on three hits in seven innings of work. Two innings of shutout bullpen work split between Josh Graham and Taylor Lewis would go unrewarded as the offense could only manage one run on the night.
