The Border Cats picked up their first win of the second half of the Northwoods League season Sunday at Subway Field with a 7-2 victory over the Alexandria Beetles. Danny Bethea (St. John's) doubled home Philip Lyons (Nicholls State) in the bottom of the 1st inning and the Cats never trailed the rest of the way. Bethea finished the night going 2-3 while Lyons went 3-4 with a double, three runs scored and an RBI. Payden Cawley Lamb (Gonzaga) went 1-2 with a double and a pair of runs scored. Thunder Bay batters collected four doubles plus a triple by Patrick Gallagher (UCLA). Garrett Hughes (Stanford) was dominant in his third start of the season as he evened his record at 1-1. The big lefthander pitched six innings and allowed only one run on one hit. Hughes walked two and struck out five. The Cats and Beetles, both at 1-3 in the North Division standings, play the final game of their three game series tonight at 7:05 p.m. Kacy Kemmer (Austin Peay State) will get the start on the mound for Thunder Bay. The righthander has appeared in six games and is 1-2 with a 4.70 ERA. Monday is Metro Night with Gift Card Prizes and Giveaways.
