Catfish blast Hickory, earn split

The Columbus Catfish ended their series with the Hickory Crawdads (Pirates) on a positive note.

The Catfish erupted for 12 runs, as they took the final game of the series 12-0.

The win gives the Catfish a split of the 2-game series.

After a scoreless 3 innings, the 4th inning was all Catfish.
Columbus (11-5, 38-48) began its onslaught with three doubles, a single and a walk in the tie-breaking fourth inning, highlighted by Reid Fronk's two-run double.

After tacking on a run in the fifth and sixth innings, the 'Fish waited until the top of the ninth to finish what they wrought, using a three-run home run from Quinn Stewart and two-run blast from Mike McCormick to extend the final blows.

Every batter in the Columbus lineup had a base hit, save for DH Ian Paxton, who made up for it by walking twice. It marked the second time in the series that Columbus reached double-digit runs and hits, following its 10-run, 14-hit performance in a 10-4 win in game two.
Jeremy Hall earned the win, his 3rd of the season.

After an off day on Sunday, the Catfish return home Monday to open an 8-game home stand.
