Gio Alfonzo smacked two doubles in Columbia’s 7-2 loss to Rome on Wednesday afternoon at State Mutual Stadium. The Braves broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth inning with five runs on six hits. The Fireflies can still split the four-game series with a win on Thursday night.

Tourists top Fireflies to claim series Friday

The Fireflies’ rally fell short on Friday night at Spirit Communications Park. Columbia had runners at second and third in the bottom of the 10th, but stranded both and dropped the series finale 5-3 to the Tourists. Asheville claims this three-game set, taking two out of the three over a two-day span.
