Catfish win suspended game with Rome

It took nearly 24 hours, but the Columbus Catfish finally won Monday's game with the Rome Braves, 5-3.

The game was suspended about 9:00 Monday night by the umpires because of rain and lightning.

The Catfish were up 5-0 at the time. They scored a run in the 1st inning on 2B Travis Denker's RBI double that drove in CF Bridger Hunt. They added 4 more in the 3rd on 4 walks, an error, and a 2-run double by Eduardo Perez.

In the bottom of the 5th, with heavy rain falling, Rome loaded the bases with 2 outs, but the umpires had had enough and suspended the game. When it resumed, starter David Horlacher, 1 out from being the pitcher of record, remained on the bench and was replaced by Jordan Pratt, who got out of the 5th with no runs scoring.

Pratt pitched 3-1/3 innings, allowing 1 run on 3 hits, striking out 4, and was credited with the win, his 8th.

The win was the 7th in a row for the Catfish, and their 10th in 11 games. Today's regularly scheduled game is now underway, and will go 7 innings by rule. We'll have an update on that later.
