Last Saturday, in Columbus, a game was suspended in the 2nd inning because of rain. The game concluded Thursday ... in Charleston ... and was followed by a second game.
The good news is the Catfish outscored Charleston 2-1 in both games Thursday. The bad news? The 5 runs Charleston scored last Saturday counted. Charleston ended up winning the suspended game by a 6-2 score. The Catfish won the other game, a 7-inning contest, 2-1.
The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer has the details:
In the second game, the Fish scored two runs in the top of the fifth to take the lead. Maiko Loyola drove in Omar Luna, who doubled. Loyala stole second, moved to third on an error and scored the game-winner on a groundout.
In the first game, Charleston scored four runs in the second inning off Columbus' Jason Ragan on a grand slam from Taylor Holiday. Luna was 2-for-3 with a RBI for Columbus.
The Catfish still lead the Southern Division, despite suffering their first loss of the second half.
The series concludes Friday night in Charleston. If the Catfish win, they take their 3rd straight series of the 2nd half.
