The Catfish avoided the sweep against the Greensboro Grasshoppers (Marlins) tonight, winning 3-1. After allowing a run in the first inning, the pitching staff shut out the Grasshoppers over the next 8-2/3 innings to notch the win.
One of our two players, Dan Batz, didn't play tonight. The other, Lucas May, continues in a slump, going hitless in 5 at-bats.
Tomorrow, the Catfish open a series in Kannapolis against the Intimidators (White Sox).
More good news for the Catfish today, as two players were named to the South Atlantic League All-Star Game. 2B Travis Denker will start for the South, while Blake Johnson will pitch out of the bullpen.
