Twins, Braves break it off in fifth

1:01 am | July 23, 2013

From a base-running mistake to a game-changer, Zach Granite put the brakes on another Elizabethton skid.
The center fielder opened the bottom of the fifth with a triple and reeled off an almost impossible stolen run out of a rundown situation before heavy rains flooded Monday’s series with Danville at Joe O’Brien Field.
Tied 5-5 with one out in the fifth, the third game of a series controlled by the Braves will resume in Danville on Aug. 12.
“It didn’t take a meteorologist to see we were going to get hammered,” said Twins manager Ray Smith. “It was going to rain 40 days and 40 nights in just a couple of minutes.”
