The Catfish (25-41) scored three unearned runs in the fifth inning without hitting a ball out of the infield off Sand Gnats reliever Brant Rustich. Columbus used a pair of bunt singles, 2 walks, three Savannah errors, a passed ball and a wild pitch to plate the runs and take a 4-2 advantage.
After Columbus starter Bryan Flores was ejected for arguing at the end of third, Glenn Gibson and Boggan held the Gnats scoreless for the final six frames. Gibson (3-8) struck out 4 in 4.0 innings for the win. Boggan pitched the final 2.0 innings for his fourth save.
The series concludes Thursday night. A Catfish win would give them their second straight series win.
