The Catfish dropped the final game of the homestand to the Greensboro Grasshoppers (Marlins) 5-2 tonight. They still gained a split in the series, two-games apiece.
Both players the wife and I "sponsor," Dan Batz and Lucas May played tonight. Luke broke out of a 3-for-40 slump with a hit and two walks, with a stolen base and a run scored. Dan extended his string of games successfully reaching base to 16 games by drawing a walk in the ninth.
A 12-game road trip looms for the Catfish, who leave early in the morning for Hickory, NC, before heading to Asheville, NC and Greenville, SC, finally returning home on the 17th.
