Catfish blank West Virginia, take series

After getting knocked around the night before by the West Virginia Power (Brewers), the Columbus Catfish shut down the visitors' bats, and taking a 2-0 decision.

Wade Townsend pitched 6 innings, allowing 3 hits, and striking out 4 as he picked up his 6th win of the season, and his first since June 26. Columbus native Brian Baker extended his scoreless streak to 13-2/3 innings, allowing 1 hit in 2 innings work. Neal Frontz pitched a perfect 9th inning, notching his 14th save.

The Catfish pounded 9 hits, led by Cesar Suarez who went 3-for-4 with an RBI. Seth Dhaenens went 2-for-3. Desmond Jennings and John Matulia each doubled and each scored a run in the victory.

The win gives the 4-game series to the Catfish, 3 games to 1, and closes the gap behind division-leading Asheville to 2-1/2 games.

The Lexington Legends (Astros) open a 4-game series Friday night. Roger Clemens' son Koby is a 3B for Lexington.
