Baseball Blogging: Another Split

CatfishThe Catfish earned another series split tonight, closing out the series against the Charleston RiverDogs (Yankees) with a 4-2 win. That's the second series in a row in which the Catfish split with the division leader.

While that doesn't get them any closer to the top of the division, it does show that they are as good as the division leaders. And, with a break here or there, they could easily be the division leader.

Dan still leads the team with a .304 average, going 1-for-4 with an RBI. Luke's 1-for-3 night brought his up slightly.

They head out in the morning for a four-game series against division co-leader Augusta GreenJackets (Giants) followed by a visit to Charleston for four more.


  1. I don't care for MLB, and haven't since the strike way back when, but minor league ball still has the charm that once made the game almost magical. I'm touched and I'm glad that you still get so much obvious enjoyment from those players that still (for the most part) play for the love of the game instead of the flash of a camera.

  2. CY:
    Yeah, I had a hard time getting back into it. I was glad they were playing, but that strike really, really bothered me. And when I went to a minor league game in Savannah afterwards, I was struck by how much different the minor leaguers were than the major leaguers I was on TV. And that's when I began actively planning more trips to Savannah to watch them play.

    Yeah, I know they want to reach the majors, but I suspect the one's I've met that do reach that level will be the good ones, that is, the ones that do sign the baseballs for the kids and not charge $10 for it.
