If the Savannah Bananas are to defend their Petitt Cup title this summer, they'll need to win their next two games at home.
Savannah dropped Game 1 of the Western Conference championship series, 7-4, to the Gastonia Grizzlies Thursday night.
The Grizzlies scored three runs in the 8th to take the lead.
The Bananas return home to historic Grayson Stadium Friday for Game 2 of the series. They must win to force a Game 3 and keep their season alive.
First pitch Friday is set for 7:05 p.m.
