Columbus State completes sweep of Montevallo

MONTEVALLO, Ala. -- Columbus State scored double-digit runs for the third time in as many days to ease past Montevallo 14-5 on Sunday.

In the first two games of the series, the Cougars (29-11, 14-10 PBC) combined to push 34 runs across the plate. They kept up that torrid pace Sunday, scoring eight runs in the third inning and two each in the fourth and fifth to break the game open.

Mike McGinnity (5-1) got the win, allowing four runs and five hits in six innings. Montevallo (18-21, 10-14) actually jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first before the visitors roared back for the victory.

The 48 runs are the most Columbus State has scored in a series since it tallied 67 runs in the season-opening series versus Clark Atlanta in 2012.
