Fixler leads rout with six RBI

After a season of nothing going right for the Legends, nothing could go wrong for Jonathan Fixler Sunday as he led host Lexington's 16-10 victory over Columbus with six RBI.

Fixler hit three homers, including one to lead off the decisive nine-run sixth inning.

But he wasn't done as the Legends batted around and brought him up again with two on. Fixler cracked a line drive to center field, scoring Brian Pellegrini and Kyle Miller.

Fixler went 4-for-5 and scored four runs.

Miller, the designated hitter, also lit up the scoreboard, hitting two doubles and driving in four. He scored twice.

The huge sixth inning broke open a tight 7-5 game. Travis Burnett gave up the leadoff homer for the Catfish and loaded the bases without an out before giving way to Glenn Gibson, who didn't fare much better.

Surprisingly, Fixler's fifth, sixth and seventh home runs of the season were the only long balls hit by the Legends Sunday, the rest of their runs coming through small ball.
