Baseball rallies to complete three-game sweep of WingateSALISBURY, NC – Catawba College took advantage of four Wingate errors, coming from behind on Sunday afternoon to complete a three-game sweep over the Bulldogs, with a 12-7 win in South Atlantic Conference baseball action at Newman Park. The Tribe pick up their 20th win on the year, climbing to 20-9 overall and 5-1 in the SAC. Wingate falls to 9-21 and 3-3. Wingate opened the scoring in the second inning as David Yount (Forest City, NC) started his 3-for-4 day with a RBI single to center. Jay Barnes (Strasburg, VA) followed with a RBI double to put the Bulldogs up 3-0. Catawba would strike back in the bottom half of the frame courtesy of an Aaron Rimer (Salisbury, NC) two-run shot. Wingate wasted no time responding in the next half-inning as Andrew Conner (Randleman, NC) blasted his second home-run of the year for a 4-2 advantage. Trailing 5-2 in the bottom of the fourth, Scott Searles (Boston, MA) and Jeff Boyles (Pinnacle, NC) hit back-to-back dingers to cut the Indian deficit to 5-4. Andrew Brockington (Florence, SC) and Yount both had home runs in the sixth to up the Wingate lead to 7-4. In the Catawba sixth, Boyles laid down a sacrifice bunt which brought home Nick Lefko (Faith, NC) as Wingate committed the first of two errors in the frame. Searles would tie the game as he scored from third on a failed pick-off attempt. The Indians would add five-insurance runs in their final two at bats. Searles picked up a RBI single in the seventh, later scoring on a Boyles triple. Spence Southard (Greensboro, NC) contributed a RBI double in the eighth, scoring in the frame off another Bulldog miscue. Jimbo Davis (Salisbury, NC) picked up his conference-leading 48th RBI on a sacrifice-fly for the final 12-7 margin. Nick Mayle (Landis, NC) earned the win in relief, allowing just one hit over his one and a third innings of work. Zach Evans (Greensboro, NC) closed the door in the final one and two-thirds innings of play, grabbing his third save on the year. ######
