Catfish beat Lexington

Strong starting pitching, perfect relief pitching, and a little long ball thrown in.

That's the recipe the Columbus Catfish used to down the Lexington Legends (Astros) Tuesday night, 5-2.

Jeremy Hall pitched into the 6th inning, allowing 2 runs on 8 hits, and Justin Garcia sat down all 9 batters he faced ... 5 by strike out ... to help the Catfish secure the win.

The Catfish scored two runs in both the third and fourth innings.

Shawn O'Malley hit a sacrifice fly to score the first run. Reid Fronk doubled in the second run of the third inning.

In the fourth, Stephen Vogt doubled in one run. He later scored on a double play.

Michael McCormick hit a solo homer in the sixth to close out Columbus' scoring.
A win Wednesday night in the final game of the series would give the Catfish a split with Lexington. The Catfish return home Friday.
