Hampton, Rhoades spark 24-hit attack in DH split with Pfeiffer

MISENHEIMER, NC -- Catawba and Pfeiffer split a softball doubleheader on Thursday afternoon at Ingram Field.  Catawba won the opener 7-4, while the Falcons took the nightcap 9-7.  Catawba stands at 9-11 on the season, while Pfeiffer is 6-14.
Catawba fell behind 1-0 in the opener, but got RBI singles from Jessie Whitesides (Yadkinville, NC) and Amanda Mitchell (Huntingtown, MD) in the fourth to grab a one-run lead.  Pfeiffer tied the game in the fourth and took a 4-2 lead on Dacia Ijames two-run homer in the sixth.

The Lady Indians rallied with two outs in the seventh.  Jenn Mehl (West Creek, NJ) cut the lead to 4-3 on a pinch-hit RBI double and Ashlee Rhoades (China Grove, NC) gave Catawba a 5-4 lead with a two-run double.  Jacqueline White (Mt. Ulla, NC) also singled home a run in the five-run frame.  

Catawba would take a 3-0 lead early in the second game.  Hillary Hampton (Salisbury, NC) homered in the second and Whitesides had a two-out, two-run single later in the inning.  The Falcons tied the game in the fourth on a two-run double by Stephanie Bethea.  

Pfeiffer would put up a six spot in the fifth as the Lady Indians made a pair of errors and Jaimee Cassidy hit a two-out grand slam.  Bethea would follow with a two-run homer to put Pfeiffer up 9-3.  Catawba got a pair of run back in the sixth as Mitchell hit a two-run homer.  The Lady Indians threatened in the seventh as Rhoades and White tripled to cut the lead to 9-6 and Hampton hit a sacrifice fly, but that was as close as Catawba could get.

Hampton was 5-for-7 in the doubleheader for Catawba with a pair of RBI.  Rhoades had four hits in the two games.  Katie Dunn had three hits for Pfeiffer in the opener, while Bethea had three hits and four RBI in the nightcap.
