Tonight, it doesn't get any easier for the Catfish. They conclude the series against the Rome Braves, who are sending Braves pitcher John Thompson to the mound.
No, that's not a Rome Braves pitcher with the same name as the Atlanta Braves pitcher. That's the Atlanta Braves pitcher, John Thompson.
Yes, the National League East Division leading Atlanta Braves pitcher, John Thompson.
Thompson is working a rehab assignment after injuring his hand in May. He'll pitch in the minors until he's ready to rejoin the Atlanta Bravers. And, tonight, the Catfish get the opportunity to face the recovering major leaguer.
It should be loads of fun.
