The Rome Braves announce that catcher Brett Cumberland and pitcher Ian Wilson have been named as players of the week in the South Atlantic League for May 22-28.
Cumberland had an outstanding week hitting .429 (12-28) in seven games played including three doubles, four home runs, and 15 RBI. Pitcher Ian Anderson started one game during that span and enjoyed the best start of his professional career going six innings allowing one hit, no runs, while striking out eleven. “This is great for Ian and Brett,” says Rome General Manager Michael Dunn. “The team has been playing well and this is a wonderful honor for them as well as the team.”
The Braves continue their road trip tonight in Greenville. The team returns home tomorrow to begin a four game homestand. For ticket information call the Rome Braves ticket office at 706-378-5144 or purchase tickets online at wwww.romebraves.com.
