HAYDEN DEAL (Class A Rome, Ga.)

Rome’s home doubleheader against Greensboro on Wednesday was rained out and the games will not be made up as the Braves go to Greenville (S.C.) to start a four-game series on Thursday night.

Former Bandys High left-hander Hayden Deal has not pitched since last Thursday night when he didn’t get a decision in a 14-5 victory over visiting Columbia (S.C.). He went 4 2/3 innings, allowing seven hits, five runs (four earned), walking one and striking out seven.

Deal is 5-1 with an ERA of 2.30 in 21 appearances this season, pitching 62 2/3 innings. He’s hit four batters, intentionally walked one and walked 11 to go with 69 strikeouts. Opponents are hitting .207 against him this season.

In his last 10 outings, he’s 1-1 with an ERA of 2.58, pitching 38 1/3 innings with four walks and 34 strikeouts.

Deal is four strikeouts away from 100 in his pro career with 96 in 93 1/3 innings.

He is not listed as a probable starter for Thursday night in Greenville, S.C.

The Braves are 57-50 overall and 17-21 in the second-half SAL Southern Division standings.

Rome won a first-half title, securing a postseason berth.

HUNTER HARVEY (Class AA Bowie, Md.)

Former Bandys High star Hunter Harvey is recoving from a shoulder injury sustained while trying to maneuver away from a foul ball into the dugout on a day he was not pitching.

When he twisted to avoid being struck by the ball, his right shoulder popped out of socket.

Harvey is now throwing some and is expected to pitch in a game in Florida on Aug. 4.

He was scratched from his 10th start (June 8).

Harvey is 1-2 with 32 1/3 innings pitched. He’s allowed 36 hits, 20 runs (all earned), walked eight and struck out 30. His ERA is 5.57.

Bowie finished last in the first-half West Division of the Eastern League, 8 ½ games back of division winner Akron (Ohio).

The visiting Baysox nipped Akron (Ohio) 6-5 on Wednesday night before 2,632 and improved to 49-58 in the Eastern League.
