The Columbus bats came alive in the 7th when Henry Wrigley singled to center field to score Stewart and then Mike McCormick drove in Reid Fronk after grounding into a double play. In the 8th, the show turned to Fronk, as he hit a go-ahead 3-run home run to left field to give the Catfish a 7-5 lead. The Braves would add one in the 9th, but Jose Mejias shut the door for his 2nd save of the season.
The Catfish were led by Reid Fronk, who went 3-4 with 2 runs, 3 runs batted in and the big home run. Quinn Stewart went 2-3 with 2 runs and a run batted in. Glenn Gibson recorded his 4th win of the season after throwing 2 shutout innings.
The win was the 4th for the Catfish in their last 5 games against Rome. The win was also Gibson's 3rd straight.
The Catfish host Rome Saturday night, before concluding the first half Sunday.
