Davis sets new school-record; Link stays un-beaten as Baseball grabs two winsSALISBURY, NC – Catawba College picked up two wins against the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Spartans on Wednesday afternoon at Newman Park. A suspended game in the bottom of the seventh, on Tuesday night, resulted in its completion on Wednesday, resulting in a 9-8 victory for the Tribe, thanks to Matt Baker’s (Charlotte, NC) second home run of the game. The regularly scheduled contest saw the Indians grab an 11-3 win, behind a solid performance from starter Paul Link (Cleveland, NC). Catawba improves to 22-9 on the year. St. Thomas Aquinas drops to 1-12. The Spartans and Indians battled back and forth on Tuesday night before the rains arrived. St. Thomas Aquinas picked up a run in the first as Jason Pominski (Shirley, NY) scored from third, on a groundout off the bat of Thomas LoDico (Copiague, NY). Catawba answered with two runs in the home-half of the first courtesy of a Scott Searles (Boston, MA) RBI double, and a Jimbo Davis (Salisbury, NC) RBI single. LoDico put the Spartans back on top in the third with a two-run blast to center. Again, the Tribe responded in the bottom of the inning. Davis would hit his third grand-slam of the season, giving Catawba the lead, and setting a new school-record for most in a season. Baker would hit his first of two home-runs in the fourth, a two-run blast, giving the Indians an 8-3 lead. LoDico would pick up his fourth RBI in the fifth, as the Spartans would tally in the next three innings to make things interesting. Joesph Ayala (Bronx, NY) picked up an RBI double while Brett Younghans (Florida, NY) contributed with an RBI single, as St. Thomas Aquinas put up a three-spot in the sixth. James Conigliaro (Brooklyn, NY) tied the game in the top of the seventh with an RBI single to right. Suspended play this afternoon began with a Baker home run, in the seventh, which resulted in the game-winner for the Tribe. Nick Mayle (Landis, NC) was credited with the win, now 5-1, while Thomas Wilson (Smithfield, NC) pitched two perfect innings of relief, registering his second save of the year. Today’s regularly scheduled match-up saw Catawba throw five runs on the board in the first, never looking back. Davis, Aaron Rimer (Salisbury, NC) and Jeff Boyles (Pinnacle, NC) all picked up an RBI in the frame. Rimer picked up another RBI in the third, sending a 0-1 pitch over the right-field wall, his fifth of the season. Boyles wrapped up his 3-for-4 performance with a two-run single in the seventh, capping off a four-run inning for the Indians. The lone RBI for the Spartans was a Pominski sacrifice-fly to center field. Other bright spots for St. Thomas Aquinas included 2-for-4 outings from LoDico and Jay Muller (Mahopac, NY). Link would fire six and a third innings, scattering five hits and striking out six, staying un-beaten on the year at 4-0. ######
