Baseball cruises to DH sweep of St. Augustine's

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba, ranked 23rd by Collegiate Baseball Magazine, picked up a pair of wins, sweeping a doubleheader from visiting St. Augustine’s on Wednesday afternoon at Newman Park. The host Indians won by the scores of 11-0 and 9-2 to improve to 12-3 on the year. The Falcons fall to 2-5. Four pitchers combined on the shutout in the opener. Paul Link (Cleveland, N.C.) earned the win as he struck out three and surrendered just one hit in three innings of work. Jeff Abdelnour (Cohoes, N.Y.), Matt Seabolt (Asheboro, N.C.) and Zach Evans (Greensboro, N.C.) completed the shutout. Chad Baker (Jamestown, N.C.) put the Tribe up 1-0 on a single in the first. Matt Smith (Browns Summitt, N.C.) and Matt Kepley (Greensboro, N.C.) had RBI singles in the second. Catawba broke the game open in the third with two outs as Thomas Giles (Lynchburg, Va.) delivered a three-run double and Evans followed with a two-run homer. Walter James (Hartsville, S.C.) gave the Falcons a 1-0 lead with a RBI groundout in the opening frame of the nightcap. Jimbo Davis (Salisbury, N.C.) and Aaron Rimer (Salisbury, N.C.) had RBI in the Tribe first to put Catawba up 2-1. St. Augustine’s tied the game in the second, benefiting from a Tribe error. Matt Baker (Charlotte, N.C.) gave Catawba the lead for good in the third with a two-run homer and Giles added a RBI for a 5-2 lead. Davis would homer in the fourth for a 7-2 Tribe edge. Evans added his second home run of the doubleheader in the sixth and Kepley capped the scoring with a RBI-double in the sixth. Tim Smith (Walnut Cove, N.C.) picked up the win with three innings of work. The freshman allowed one earned run on two hits with a pair of strikeouts. Brian Benton (Wallace, N.C.) and Chad Baker each tossed two shutout innings in relief. Davis was a perfect 3-for-3 in game two for the Tribe. ######
