Fireflies sweep GreenJackets Sunday

The Fireflies blanked the GreenJackets 4-0 on Sunday afternoon at Spirit Communications Park. It’s the second shut-out victory and second series sweep for the club this season. Chris Viall was impressive on the mound through 5.1 innings. The righty allowed just two hits, issued zero walks, and struck out four batters.

Fireflies edged by Rome on the road

Raphael Gladu has been arguably the best hitter in the South Atlantic League since May 9. That’s when the outfielder’s hit streak began. Gladu stretched it to 18 straight games with a pair of doubles on Saturday in Columbia’s 3-1 loss to Rome at State Mutual Stadium.
