Chandler Avant has owned Augusta pitchers all of 2019. The former Alabama Crimson Tide continued to do just that on Saturday night. Avant tallied three hits in four trips against the GreenJackets, including a two-run homer in the ninth inning. Avant's blast put the Fireflies within one of Augusta. Columbia failed to muster any more offense in the final inning and ultimately lost, 5-4.

Columbia welcomed an engaging and raucous crowd to Segra Park on Thursday. 6,533 Fireflies fans showed up loud and proud for the final home game of 2019. That attendance number is the third-highest home crowd for Columbia in 2019. Only July 3rd's Independence Day Celebration (7,872) and a May 22nd Reading Program game (6,603) had larger attendance numbers. Unfortunately, the packed stands didn't lead to a Fireflies victory. Columbia fell to Hickory, 5-1.

Jose Moreno delivered yet another scoreless relief outing for Columbia on Wednesday night. The right-handed fireballer inherited runners at the corners with two outs in the sixth inning. Moreno put the situation to bed immediately by striking out Matt Whatley. The Fireflies stopper dodged danger again an inning later in a nearly identical situation. The second time, Moreno needed two outs to leave the two men on base. He did so in short order, striking out Hickory's four and five hitters on eight total pitches.

It was Walter Rasquin's turn to play "hero" for Columbia on Tuesday night. Rasquin came to bat with the score tied in the seventh inning against Hickory. The game would not remain even for long, however. The 23-year-old blasted a fly ball over the wall in left field to give the Fireflies a 3-2 lead they would not squander.
