Rome, GA – A day after joining the team, right-hander Nabil Crismatt struck out seven batters in his debut as a Firefly. Despite his best efforts, Columbia fell, 2-0, at State Mutual Stadium. Crismatt went 6.2 innings on Saturday night and at one point retired 12 straight batters.

Crismatt (L, 0-1) arrived in Rome just 24 hours before his start. A moment after retiring his 12th consecutive hitter in the fifth inning, Carlos Castro singled. The next batter, Jared James – who was also making his Rome (22-20, 51-61) debut – homered over the right-field wall giving the home team the lead.

Columbia (15-27, 51-61) had the go-ahead run at the plate in the ninth, but Corbin Clouse (S, 1) retired Tucker Tharp to end the game. Braves starter Mike Soroka (W, 5-9) was solid during his five innings of work on the hill.

The loss was the first for the Fireflies as the road team at State Mutual Stadium. They were 8-0 before Saturday’s loss.

Columbia has taken two of the first three of the road series and can win the four-game set with a victory on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Right-hander Raul Jacobson (0-1, 14.73) starts for the Fireflies and faces righty Touki Toussaint (3-8, 4.50).

You can listen to the action on WGCV 620 AM and 96.3 FM, ColumbiaFireflies.com and the TuneIn Radio app starting at 1:45 p.m.

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
