Catfish shut down Charleston

Columbus Catfish P Jesse Darcy pitched a 7-inning complete game, allowing just 2 hits, as the Catfish blanked the Charleston RiverDogs 2-0 Friday night.

It was the first complete game for the Catfish this season.

In the first game, which was delayed 1 hour and 42 minutes due to wet conditions from Tropical Storm Fay, Darcy's work led the Catfish to their first complete game of the season, albeit a seven-inning affair. Darcy (7-3) went the distance and neither walked or fanned a batter while facing 23 RiverDogs.

Columbus secured their first run in the second inning, when Chase Fontaine singled and moved to second on a groundout. With two outs, Shawn Williams then hit a hard liner at Charleston starter Lance Pendleton, who threw to first base, but Brandon Laird mishandled the throw which allowed Fontaine to score the unearned run.

The second Catfish run came in the seventh, when Shawn O'Malley, with the bases loaded, greeted reliever Stephen Artz with a sacrifice fly to center to make the score 2-0.
The second game of the double header was suspended due to rain, and will be completed Saturday afternoon.
