Catfish beat Savannah in 10

After being no-hit for over 7 innings, the bats finally came alive for the Columbus Catfish Monday night, who squeezed out a 3-2 win over the Savannah Sand Gnats (Mets).

It was a game where both starting pitchers pitched well enough to win. And neither did.

Catfish starter Alex Cobb went 6 innings, allowing a run on 6 hits, but left the game down 1-0. Savannah P Nick Carr went 7-1/3 innings, allowing 2 runs on 1 hit.

Stephen Cheney replaced Carr and gave up a single to McCormick to drive in Cipriano. Omar Luna tied the game on a suicide squeeze bunt, scoring Wrigley.

Nick Abel replaced Cheney to start the 10th inning, and he retired the first two batters he faced. But Luna doubled then scored on Maiko Loyola's liner to right.

Josh Johnson got the win in extra innings when, with 2 out in the 10, CF Maiko Loyola singled in 2B Omar Luna, putting the Catfish up 3-2.

The short series concludes Tuesday night in Savannah.
