MACON, Ga. (WTOC) - Friday night marked the final game of the summer for the Savannah Bananas- they went to Macon and fried up some Bacon, coming back to the Hostess City with a 13-3 win.

Earlier in the month, the team won the Coastal Plain League Championship. On the line for the Breakfast Bowl series (which are 7-inning exhibition games) against their rival, the Macon Bacon: bragging rights.

The Bananas took the series 7-1 to add to their hardware in Savannah, hoisting the trophy for the home fans at Historic Grayson Stadium Thursday night.

The two were supposed to play a nine-game series, but Saturday’s home finale was cancelled due to the City of Savannah’s COVID-19 emergency order.

The order will also cancel the Banana Ball Beer Fest scheduled for October 2.

According to the team, they will be back for another spring series in 2022.
