Fireflies beat Augusta, 4-2 on opening night

Manager Pedro Lopez had high hopes for his pitching staff in 2018 and on opening night, Tony Dibrell delivered in his first professional start. The right-hander struck out six and allowed just one hit in four innings of work on Thursday and Columbia downed the GreenJackets, 4-2. The Fireflies are now 3-0 in home openers (4-1 W v. Greenville on 4/14/16 and 14-7 W v. Augusta on 4/6/17).
