PRESS RELEASE – In front a sellout crowd of 4,073 people, the Savannah Bananas put on a show but slipped up against the Blowfish by the score of 8-5. Not even a 90 minute rain delay could keep away the fans as they were treated to dancing Nanas, Irish tap-dancing and even a Golden Banana.

Undoubtedly for the first time in baseball history a banana was thrown out as a first pitch. Once the game got started at 8:30 Savannah struggled in the field, recording five errors.

The Bananas closed the game out throwing 3 scoreless frames but could not quite recover from the eight run hole they put themselves in. Catcher Clint Carr for Lexington County cashed in a three hit game while driving in two. While both Hardy and Dungan tallied multi-hit games for the Bananas.
The Bananas are back at it tomorrow at home against the Florence RedWolves. Be sure to get your tickets before they sellout.
