Down 3-0 in the fifth inning, the Columbus Catfish fought back, eeking out a 4-3 win tonight.
Behind 3-0, the Catfish used two singles and a sacrifice fly to put one run on the board. LF Adam Godwin hit a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring C Tony Harper, who had led off the inning with a single.
In the sixth, the Catfish tied the game on a single hit. Following 2B Travis Denker's one-out walk, 1B David Sutherland singled, then moved to second when Tony Harper walked to load the bases. 3B Shane Justis and CF Bridger Hunt both walked with the bases loaded, scoring Denker and Sutherland and tying the game at 3.
In the seventh, Travis Denker gave the Catfish the lead when he doubled in SS Ivan De Jesus, who had led off with a single.
P Ramon Troncoso earned the save, his 9th, pitching the last 1-1/3 innings. Matthew Gomez de Segura picked up his 3rd win.
The win helped the Catfish keep pace with Augusta, who won their 10th straight today. Columbus is in fourth place, five games behind the Greenjackets (Giants), and a game out of second place.
Monday, the homestand ends, and the Catfish have the chance to sweep Rome since moving to Columbus.
