I'd Have Figured The Catfish Could Have Held Them To Under 15 Runs

The previous day, the Columbus Catfish were held to one hit, but won the game anyway. Tonight, they sent their undefeated All-Star ace to the mound, and offensively pounded out 11 hits and scored 6 runs.

It was nowhere near enough.

The Charleston RiverDogs' (Yankees) bats came alive as they scored 15 runs on 18 hits to beat the Catfish, 15-6.

Heath Rollins, named to the South Atlantic League All-Star game earlier in the day, allowed 8 runs (4 of them earned) on 9 hits, to suffer his 1st loss of the year. He's now 6-1, and his ERA has jumped to 1.51 -- still 2nd best in the league.

Offensively, Ryan Royster was 3-for-4 with a home run -- his 9th of the year. John Matulia was also 3-for-4. Desmond Jennings was 2-for-5.

The Catfish are now 9-7 against Charleston this season. Tonight's loss was the 3rd in a row to the RiverDogs, and the 5th in the last 6 games between the two teams.

The Catfish and Charleston continue their series Thursday night. The Catfish need to take three of four to stay on track for a playoff spot.
