Fighting Bananas Even With Copperheads After Home Win
The Savannah Fighting Bananas and the Cumberland Copperheads will take the League Championship Series to a decisive 7th game. Facing a must-win situation today, the Fighting Bananas shut out the Copperheads 9-0 at Simmons Stadium to force the series into what will essentially be a one-game playoff. Savannah left-hander Dan Wilkerson did his part. He threw 7.1 innings of shutout ball.

The Fighting Bananas liked what they saw from Wilkerson. The 22-year old pitcher had a commanding presence on the mound, limiting the Copperheads to no runs on 4 hits over 7.1 innings, and striking out 8.

"I made some pitches when I had to," said Wilkerson.

The next game is set to be played tomorrow at Simmons Stadium in Savannah.
