Leave it to a guy named Columbus to take the Hagerstown Suns to a new world of offense.
Jason Columbus pointed the Suns in the right directions, switching them from patience to power with one swing as he blasted Billy Westoff's first pitch in the eighth inning over the right field wall for a walk-off grand slam Saturday to lift Hagerstown to a 7-3 win over Lexington in the first game of a doubleheader at Municipal Stadium.
Until Columbus' first homer of the season - and only the Suns' second - Hagerstown (4-3) relied on walks, scratch hits and pitching to keep pace with Lexington. Until the home run, only 11 of the Suns first 47 hits were for extra bases, eight of which were doubles.
Randy Walter followed Columbus' lead in he nightcap with a two-run homer in the fifth but the Legends managed the split with a 5-2 victory.
