Baseball splits doubleheader at Carson-NewmanJEFFERSON CITY, TN -- Fourth-ranked Catawba and 30th-ranked Carson-Newman split a South Atlantic Conference baseball doubleheader on Saturday afternoon at the Silver Diamond Complex. Catawba rallied to take the opener 15-9, but the Eagles claimed the nightcap 10-4. The Indians now stand at 36-8 overall and 14-3 in the SAC, while Carson-Newman is 28-16 and 13-4.
Catawba trailed 7-1 in the opener before rallying for the win. The Tribe scored 10 runs in the fifth and six innings to complete the comeback, hitting four home runs in the game. On the mound, Mark Smith (Brown Summitt, NC) tossed three and a third innings of relief, allowing no hits with four strikeouts to grab the save in relief of Tim Smith (Walnut Cove, NC), who improved to 11-1 and tied the Catawba record for wins in a season set by Robbie Green in 2000.
Jonathan Mary (Maryville, TN) had a big day for the Eagles as he hit a triple in the second inning and gave C-N a 7-1 lead in the third with a grand slam. The Indians started to chip into the lead, however, and started their comeback with a solo homerun by Chad Baker (Jamestown, NC) in the fourth.
Aaron Rimer (Salisbury, NC) blasted a three-run shot in the fifth and Jimbo Davis (Salisbury, NC) followed in the sixth with another three-run homer to give the Tribe a 10-9 lead. Jerry Sands (Clayton, NC) had a two-run homerun in the ninth. Sands drove in four runs in the game.
Charlie Munrow (Newton, NJ) and Adam Kefauver (Madisonville, TN) each drove in two runs to lead the Eagles to a 10-4 win over the Indians in the second game.
John Wallace (Marietta, GA) had four strikeouts and improved his record to 6-2, while Steve Cishek (East Falmouth, MA) notched his first save of the season as he allowed no hits and struck out two in two innings of work.
The Eagles took a 2-1 lead, but Noah Johnson (Huntersville, NC) gave Catawba a 4-2 lead with a bases-clearing double with two outs in the fourth. The Eagles would regain the lead at 5-4 in the fifth on a two-out, two-run homer by Kefauver.
Catawba committed three errors in the sixth inning and that allowed the Eagles to explode for five runs to put the game out of reach. In addition to the Indians’ miscues in the sixth, Joe Kugler (Cleveland, TN) and Mary each had hits to drive in a run for the Eagles.
