Catfish Split With Savannah

Columbus Catfish logoNeeding a win to earn a split with the Savannah Sand Gnats (Nationals), the Columbus Catfish used what's been their downfall in this series: the big inning.

The Catfish used a 5-run 7th inning to come from behind and beat Savannah, 8-5.
John Matulia's two-run triple capped a five-run seventh inning as visiting Columbus defeated Savanah, 8-5, on Saturday.

Matulia had two hits, including his South Atlantic League-leading fifth triple that snapped a 5-5 tie. He scored an insurance run on Cesar Suarez's sacrifice fly.

Desmond Jennings had three hits, an RBI and a run scored, while Quinn Stewart doubled, tripled, scored a run and knocked in another for the Catfish (28-15).

Chris Kelly (1-0) fanned two and allowed one hit in two scoreless innings before Neal Frontz got the final six outs to earn his sixth save. Columbus starter Woods Fines allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk with one strikeout in five innings.

The Catfish are off today, and return home for an 8-game home stand, starting Monday night.
