RiverDogs take series from Fireflies with 5-1 win

Brosher's homer leads Columbia to 4-1 win over Charleston

WATCH: Tim Tebow sends bat flying into the stands

The RiverDogs added insurance in the eighth on back-to-back doubles from third baseman Angel Aguilar and right fielder Isiah Gilliam, making it 5-1.

In a game on Saturday night for the Columbia Fireflies against the Charleston RiverDogs, Tebow found himself in some embarrassing territory, as he pulled a Little League move and lost control of his bat on a wild swing for the at-bat's second strike.

The RiverDogs blasted the former Heisman Trophy victor during his visit to "The Joe" almost every chance they got.

The Fireflies are due to return to Charleston for four games July 7-10 after the South Atlantic League All-Star break, which starts Monday.

When the lineups were announced, every player who wasn't Tebow had "NOT TIM TEBOW" under his photo.

It's unclear if Tebow was distracted by the scoreboard when the bat slipped out of his hands, but it was certainly a night to forget for the Florida legend.

If the main objective was to get inside their opponents heads, you could argue that it worked, at least somewhat, as Charleston took two out of three games from Tebow and the Fireflies.
