Savannah Bananas Primary LogoPRESS 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.

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.
