Recapish


            The Colmbia Fireflies lost their starter to an injury and then lost this game in a blowout Friday night. Chase Ingram looked a little uncomfortable from the outset Friday night and eventually left in the 3rd having thrown just 44% strikes. Keaton Aldridge gave the Fireflies three great innings of scoreless relief, but Cola was already down 5-0 when entered, and the Hickory Crawdads exploded for ten more runs after he left. Recently acquired Ryder Ryan made his affiliates debut with a scoreless 6th while hitting 97 MPH with his fastball. Unfortunately he stayed out for the 7th, which is when Hickory started adding on to their lead.
            No indication what’s happened to Ingram yet, but he walked off on his own accord and had serious command issues, so it’s likely an arm injury, which is what the game log says – the game log also says Andres Gimenez left with a leg injury when that pitch clearly hit him in the arm, so it cannot be trusted. The Crawdads talented lineup took advantage of Ingram’s control issues with a five-run 2nd inning, which was capped by a two-run triple off the bat of Leody Taveras. Ingram walked the first two batters of the 3rd before the trainer and his Manager came out to get him.

             Keaton Aldridge worked around those base runners for a scoreless 3rd and gave Columbia the type of performance that often starts a comeback effort. He retired all nine batters faced and finished with three strikeouts, putting a freeze on a very dangerous Crawdads lineup.

            Unfortunately, while Aldridge was putting up zeros, so were the Cola bats. The managed just two hits through the first five innings: Luis Carpio singled in the 1st and Brandon Brosher singled in the 4th.

            Ryder Ryan finished a scoreless 6th with a strikeout of Taveras, but he ran into some trouble in the 7th. He allowed back-to-back singles ahead of Anderson Tejeda, who took him deep for his fifth homer of the year. Ryan bounced back to retire the next two and finish his night with a strikeout of Brendon Davis.

            Jay Jabs connected on the third Cola hit of the game when he singled in the 6th.


            The Fireflies finally got on the board with a run in the 7th. Unfortunately the rally started with the Gimenez HBP and departure, but at least he wasn’t seriously hurt. J.J. Franco followed by singling pinch-runner Colby Woodmansee to second before Carpio could single him home.

            Hickory put this game out of reach with a six-run 8th, with all six unearned runs charged to Taylor Henry. There were two errors, two wild pitches, and a passed ball before Henry gave way to infielder J.J. Franco, who actually stranded a base runner. Franco finished the game out on the mound for Columbia, and limited Hickory to just one more run in the 9th.

            Brandon Brosher connected on a solo blast for Columbia in the bottom of the 8th, which was a nice treat for any Fireflies fans sticking around – and there are plenty that do.


            Looking ahead, the Fireflies turn to Marty Anderson as they look to snap this two-game losing streak in game three of the series.
