Fireflies play longest game in team history, first baseman gets win


It took 16 innings to determine a winner on Sunday night at Spirit Communications Park.


Columbia (63-61) knotted the game up at 5-5 with a run in the bottom of the eighth, but no team would score for another eight frames.


Andres Gimenez plated a run in the bottom of the 16th, but that was all the offense left in the tank for the home team.


Right-hander Colin Holderman (2-3, 4.85) starts for the Fireflies and faces the Braves’ lefty Joey Wentz (8-3, 2.19).


You can watch the action on MiLB.tv starting at 1:00 p.m. or listen in on ESPN Columbia 94.9 FM and 1230 AM, ColumbiaFireflies.com and the TuneIn Radio app at 12:45 p.m.
