Dean Nevarez was 4 for 4 and the West Virginia Power pounded out 13 hits in earning a 5-2 victory over the Rome Braves at Appalachian Power Park Monday.

Onil Pena added three hits for the Power (21-23) and Julio Rodriguez and Bobby Honeyman both contributed two hits each in the West Virginia offensive attack.

Rome (21-23) scored the first two runs of the game, one each in the first and second inning to take a 2-0 lead but it was all Power after that in scoring the final five runs.

Trailing 2-0, Pena hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning to tie the game at two and West Virginia took the lead for good in the sixth inning on a Charlie McConnell RBI single.

The Power tacked on two more insurance runs in the bottom of the seventh inning on RBI singles from Nevarez and Charlie McConnell.
