Catfish avoid sweep

The Columbus Catfish managed to avoid a sweep Saturday night, and scored the fewest runs of the road trip in the process.

After scoring 4 runs in each of the first 3 games of the series with the West Virginia Power (Brewers), the Catfish managed but two runs Saturday night. But that was enough, as they held West Virginia to a single run.

The 2-1 win helped the Catfish avoid a sweep by West Virginia.

Columbus starter Jason Ragan (7-7) went the first five innings and allowed one run on four hits. A pair of relievers -- Joshua Johnson and closer Austin Hinkle -- both allowed just one hit.

Catcher Ian Paxton singled in Quinn Stewart to give the Catfish a 1-0 lead in the second inning.

After the Power tied the game in the bottom of the second, Reid Fronk hit his 12th homer of the season in the top of the third for a 2-1 lead.
The Catfish head to Lexington, KY, to take on the Legends (Astros) for 4 games.
