Chais Fuller's grand slam in the eighth inning gave Rome the lead, and the Braves held on to beat the Lexington Legends 6-5 at Applebee's Park on Sunday afternoon.
Fuller's home run followed singles by Matt Kennelly, Calvin Culver and Chris Shehan.
Following Shehan's hit, closer Patrick Urckfitz relieved Henry Villar for Lexington, but Fuller hit a 1-1 pitch over the bleachers in left field.
The Legends scored in the bottom of the eighth to cut the lead to one on Jay Austin's RBI double.
Never miss a local story.
The Legends held leads of 1-0, 2-1 and 4-2. Albert Cartwright's fourth home run of the year, a two-run shot in the seventh inning, broke a 2-2 tie. It was first ruled foul, but after the umpires conferred, the call was changed.
Reliever Yeliar Castro (3-3) got the win. Villar (1-2), who relieved starter Ross Seaton in the seventh, took the loss.
Jaye Chapman earned his eighth save in as many opportunities and his third against Lexington this year by pitching the final inning and a third.
■ The Legends' loss Sunday followed a 9-4 win late Saturday night in a rain-shortened game. Jay Austin's bases-clearing triple was the key hit in a five-run rally in the fourth inning as the Legends defeated the Braves in five innings.
