The Catfish broke out of a five-game losing streak tonight, beating the Savannah Sand Gnats (Nationals) 4-0 in the first game of a double-header, but dropped the second game, 5-3.
With rain this week wreaking havoc with the schedule, tonight's games were seven-inning affairs. Well, the second game went 8 innings because it was tied after 7.
Our two players played in both games tonight, with Dan Batz at first base for both, and Lucas May playing left field in the opener and DHing in the nightcap. Both were hitless in the two games, but each scored a run in the first game. Savannah's pitchers were outstanding tonight, allowing just nine hits over the two games, and some good defense made it hard to punch runs across.
The loss in the second game took a little of the smile off the players' faces, but they did feel good to break out of that losing streak.
Tomorrow night is game three of the four-game series, which wraps up Sunday.
