(Rome, GA - July 9, 2017)- The West Virginia Power couldn't get the offense moving against the Rome Braves on Sunday afternoon. Rome used a five-run first to propel them to victory.
Blake Cederlind took the ball for West Virginia in game three but was unable to escape the first inning. The right-hander recorded one out before the Braves tagged him for five runs on five hits. Mike Wallace took over thereafter and allowed just one run through the eighth inning. The Power bullpen also included a scoreless inning from Jordan Jess.
West Virginia's offense was stifled. The lone Power run came in the second. Hunter Owen doubled to begin the frame and was immediately driven home on a Carlos Munoz RBI single. In 33 offensive innings, West Virginia has been able to score just four runs against the Braves this series.
Cederlind (2-3) was handed the loss after recording just one out in the first. Alan Rangel (1-2) goes six innings and records the win. The Power and Braves wrap up the series and play their final matchup of 2017 at 1:00 P.M. on Monday. All the action can be heard on the Power Baseball network.
