Offense stays hot; Baseball pounds St. Andrews 17-6

SALISBURY, N.C. Senior Matt Baker (Charlotte, NC) went 3-for-5, including a grand slam with six RBI, leading the Catawba Indians to a 17-6 baseball win over the St. Andrews Knights on Tuesday night at Newman Park. The Indians, winners of four-straight, jump to 8-3 on the year, while the Knights fall to 4-5. The Knights tossed up two runs in the first, followed by four in the second, accounting for their six runs. Cliff Allred (Franklinville, NC) picked up an RBI-single while Everett Kelly (Wilmington, NC) grabbed the only other Knight RBI as St. Andrews took advantage of seven Catawba errors on the night. For the Tribe, Baker laced a two-run single up the middle while Matt Smith (Browns Summitt, NC) roped a two-run triple helping the Indians to a five-run first. The lone run for Catawba in the second came on a rare straight steal of home by Baker with two outs. Baker capped off his night in the third inning with the towering slam to straight-away center. Bubba Morris (Salisbury, NC) and Smith picked up RBI-base hits in the seven-run frame. Jimbo Davis (Salisbury, NC), 3-for-4 on the night, cranked a solo-HR for Catawba in the sixth. Andrew Daywalt (Mocksville, NC), Thomas Giles (Lynchburg, VA) and Matt Kepley (Greensboro, NC) all had run producing at-bats in a three-run eighth for the Tribe. Jeff Abdelnour (Cohoes, NY) struck-out six, in six innings of work, picking up his second win of the season. The Indians will stay at home to face Pfeiffer, for the fifth time this season, tomorrow afternoon at 2:30pm. ######
