Catfish clobber Rome

ColumbusCatfishThe 2008 baseball season is winding down. And the Columbus Catfish are looking to end on a positive note.

On Sunday afternoon, the Catfish beat the Rome Braves, 11-1, evening the series at a game apiece:

The Catfish scored all the runs they would need in the first inning. Maiko Loyola reached on a base hit and advanced to second on a Shawn O'Malley single. Reid Fronk singled and brought Loyola home to score and O'Malley to third. Fronk reached second on the throw. Greg Sexton singled and brought in O"Malley while advancing Fronk to third. Fronk scored on a Stephen Vogt sacrifice fly. Quinn Stewart hit a homerun (7) which scored Sexton to make the score 5-0.

In the third the Catfish added six more runs for the 11-0. Rome managed to get their lone run in the sixth inning after Luis Sumoza reached on a double and scored on an Adam Coe single. Alexander Cobb (9-7) gets the win for Columbus while Rodgrio Lopez (0-1) is tagged for the loss for Rome.
The Catfish play their last game ever on Monday afternoon when the series, the season, and their representation of Columbus all end.

At the end of the season, the Catfish are moving to Bowling Green, Kentucky, and will sport a new, yet-to-be-determined nickname.
