Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- After rains washed out Game 2 of the Petit Cup, the Columbia Blowfish and Peninsula Pilots returned to Capital City Stadium Saturday. The Pilots carried a one-game lead while the Blowfish stared at elimination.
The Pilots took an 1-0 lead in middle innings before the Blowfish were able to answer. Only playing seven innings, the Blowfish needed to answer quickly. Though squandering many chances with runners on, Columbia found a way to tie the ball game.
It was in the 8th inning that the Pilots found a way to get one run across the plate. Unfortunately for the Blowfish they could not answer in the bottom frame. The Peninsula Pilots came away as the 2013 Petit Cup Champions.
