Members of the South Georgia Peanuts talk in the clubhouse, following the team's forfeit loss to the Macon Music. Much of the conversation centers on Macon left fielder Casey Garrison, who swung at a 3-0 pitch in the seventh inning when his team was winning by twelve runs. Following Garrison's at bat, Peanuts pitcher Mike Colacchio threw at Macon's Carlos Arroyo, leading to a bench-clearing brawl.
