The Star of the Night had to be Rome’s Coleman Huntley….He pitched 3 perfect innings in relief for the Braves, to help them get the win in Game Two of the doubleheader….Huntley is now (3-0) on the season, after his win this evening/Thursday evening…Huntley worked the third, fourth and fifth innings for the Braves in Game Two, and allowed 0 runs, 0 hits, 0 BB’s and he had five strikeouts…Not one Hopper reached base vs. Coleman…Coleman is a 28 year-old pitcher who has college experience, but after college he was out of baseball for 5-6 years until he signed and went to work for the Braves this season….Huntley picked up two wins versus the Winston-Salem Dash last week, and then he comes into Greensboro, and he takes home the win tonight/Thursday….Coleman Huntley has yet to give up a run this season, and he has worked three games, after his efforts at First National Bank Field this evening…Again, Huntley was missing from baseball, from 2016, until 2021….
Again, Coleman Huntley, still has not allowed a run to be scored this season….
