Catfish 8, Savannah 5

Go Catfish!The Catfish closed out their short home stand with an 8-5 victory over the Savannah Sand Gnats (Nationals) this afternoon. The victory gives the Catfish the series, 3 games to 1.

Our two players, Dan Batz and Lucas May, both played. Dan, playing 1B, had a double and scored a run. Luke broke out of an 0-for-15 slump with a single and an RBI. Another Catfish player, recently acquired RF Sergio Pedrosa, broke an 0-for-18 slump with two home runs.

The win moves the Catfish into at least third second place in the division, thanks to Rome's loss to Asheville. They can take over second place if Charleston loses and Charleston's loss to division leader Kannapolis.

Although the Catfish played seven games in this home stand (eight were scheduled), the weather necessitated two double-headers. So they only had five game days during the home stand.

After a scheduled day off tomorrow, the Catfish hit the road for four games with the Rome Braves and four more against the Greenville Bombers (Red Sox).
