Bellevue's Ryne Reynoso, a 22-year-old former star on Wood River High School's only state baseball championship team in 2003, is throwing some strong middle relief for the Rome Braves of the South Atlantic League.

The Rome Braves, located in Georgia, are a Class A minor league baseball affiliate of the Atlanta Braves parent organization. This is Reynoso's first full season of minor league baseball. He played college baseball for Boston College.

As of Monday, the Rome Braves (18-32) were mired in the second division of the eight-team SAL Southern Division—but Reynoso's 5-2 win with two innings of shutout middle relief over Savannah on May 21 fired up Rome, who then won six of their next eight games.

Reynoso, a 6-2, 215-pound righthander pitcher, has a 2-3 record and 2.82 ERA in 12 games for the Braves. He has yielded 20 hits but no homers in his 22 innings of work. His strikeout (24) to walk (11) ratio is respectable, and he has held opposing batters to a .238 mark.

Manager Randy Ingles' Rome Braves play in Savannah again today and then travel to Columbus for a June 2-5 series. The team's season lasts through Sept. 3.
