Winners of three of their past four games, the Braves — who made numerous personnel moves in the past week — host Greenville tonight in the opener of a 10-game homestand.
The slate begins with four games against Greenville, followed by a five-game series against Kannapolis.
The long homestand will give Rome fans a chance to see some of the newcomers, including former UGA standout Alex Wood.
The left-hander pitcher was a second-round draft pick by the Braves.
The numerous roster moves came about after the Braves endured their worst half in the team’s 10-year history.
They posted an 18-52 record prior to the All-Star break and finished in last place in the South Atlantic League’s Southern Division.
But the second half of the season has started with more promise, with the Braves winning three straight games in Asheville in their first series after the All-Star break before losing to the Tourists on Sunday.
Tickets for tonight’s game, and for all remaining home games, can be purchased at the SMS ticket windows or online at romebraves.com.

SUNDAY’S GAME RECAP
Final: Tourists 4, Braves 1
The turning point:
The Tourists didn’t have any explosive rallies, but they scored one run in four different innings — the first, fifth, sixth and eighth — while preventing the Braves from completing a four-game sweep.
Who did what for Rome: Catcher Cory Brownsten drove in the Braves’ lone run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh. Tony Mueller went 2-for-3 with a walk, and Chase Anselment was 2-for-4.
On the mound: Rome starter David Filak, a SAL All-Star, went six innings and was charged with three runs on eight hits. He finished with one walk and four strikeouts. Reliever Bryam Garcia followed Filak and worked two innings, allowing one unearned run.
Next Game: The Braves host Greenville tonight at 7 p.m. in the first game of a nine-game homestand.
