Catfish Drop Finale In Kannapolis

The Columbus Catfish dropped a chance to sweep an opponent for the first time in two seasons when they dropped the final game of a series in Kannapolis, 3-2.

Leading 2-1 going into the bottom of the eighth, relief pitcher Miguel Sanfler allowed a walk and three straight singles before being lifted with Columbus down 3-2. Sanfler was charged with his fourth loss of the season.

RF Sergio Pedroza homered in the fourth to tie the game for the Catfish, and scored following a double, a wild pitch, and a Jason Mooneyham single in the eighth to take the lead, 2-1, before Kannapolis took the lead in the bottom of the eighth.

After a day off Wednesday, the Catfish return home Thursday for an eight-game home stand. Thursday night is College Night ... and Thirsty Thursday, where beer is cheap. Just a coincidence, I'm sure.

In a roster move, the Dodgers promoted a Catfish pitcher to Vero Beach. From the Columbus Catfish:

The Catfish will send LHP Alberto Bastardo (3-1, 1.39) to the Vero Beach Dodgers (Advanced-A) effective today. In six starts with the Catfish Bastardo allowed just 22 hits over 32 1/3 innings. He lasted at least five innings in each of his outings and did not allow an earned run in four of them.

The 21-year-old native of Venezuela was originally signed by the Baltimore Orioles as a nondrafted free agent in 2002. The Dodgers selected him in the First Round of the Triple-A Phase of the 2005 Rule 5 draft.
