Baseball rolls to 14-2 win over Carson-Newman

ROCK HILL, SC -- Top-seeded Catawba tallied 22 hits, including three home runs, and junior Matt Baker went 3-for-5 with three runs batted in as the Indians advanced to the championship bracket final with a 14-2 win over fifth-seeded Carson-Newman College Friday afternoon at Knights Stadium. Catawba, now 38-15, advances to the winnerís bracket to face Wingate, the other current undefeated team, at 2 p.m. on Saturday at Knights Stadium. Carson-Newman falls to (30-25-1). Each team squandered major scoring opportunities in the opening inning as the first three batters reached base for both squads, but the inning ended in a 1-1 tie. The score remained tied until the fifth when Catawba exploded for five runs, sending 11 batters to the plate. Baker followed a Matt Smith single with a home run and senior Jeff Boyles added a three-run shot. Carson-Newman answered with a homer in the bottom of the fifth, but junior Charlie Munroe's round-tripper came with nobody on base. The Indians came back with three more in the sixth to open up a 9-2 advantage. Senior Scott Searles, sophomore Nick Lefko and junior Mark Smith all contributed RBI in the inning. Catawba added two runs in the seventh and three more in the ninth to close out the scoring. Thomas Giles, who had a monster series against the Eagles last weekend, was 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBI. Junior Matt Fairweather went eight innings and allowed eight hits and two earned runs to improve his record to 8-2. Sophomore Sean McGowan took the loss (5-5). #####
