The Catfish didn't get a runner into scoring position until there were 2 out in the 8th, and never mounted any offensive threat the entire night.

The loss means the Catfish lost another series, dropping 3 out of 4 to Asheville.

The Catfish head to Greenville then Augusta for a pair of 4-game series, before returning home on the 12th.
