Smokies halt M-Braves’ streak

Published 10:00 am Wednesday, July 23, 2014

A couple of late-inning rallies brought an early end to the Mississippi Braves’ winning streak.

Luis Flores tied the game with a two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning, and Jae-Hoon Ha delivered a game-winning ground-rule double in the 10th to lift the Tennessee Smokies to an 8-7 victory Tuesday night.

The M-Braves scored in each of the first five innings, but couldn’t hold a 7-3 lead and had their two-game winning streak snapped.
