Catfish Bullpen Falters

Go Catfish!After falling behind early, the Columbus Catfish fought back to take the lead, but the bullpen blew a late lead as they fell to the Savannah Sand Gnats 9-7 tonight.

Savannah punched across 2 in the first, then 6 in the second to take a 6-1 lead, but two home runs, a double and a triple helped the Catfish take a 7-6 lead.

The lead held up until the 7th inning when, with two out, P Matthew Gomez de Segura walked four straight batters on 16 straight balls to blow the save and tie the game. In the 8th, a hit batsman, a triple, and a wild pitch allowed the Sand Gnats to take a 9-7 lead.

The loss spoiled RF Sergio Pedroza's league-leading 17th home run of the season, and an excellent relief appearance for P Kale Garrison.

The brief four-game homestand ends Sunday night when the two teams battle at 6:00 PM.


  1. I have just found your blog a couple of weeks ago, and I enjoy what you write about the catfish. I am Pedroza's girlfriend and I appreciate the good things that you say about him. Anyways, I am sure the Catfish will do well in today's game!

  2. Sergio Pedroza has been one of the outstanding stars ... not just for the Catfish ... but for the South Atlantic League. He played well last year during his stint with Columbus ... and is really impressing the fans here.
