SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba used a five-run first and a six-run third to defeat visiting King 11-1 in baseball action on Wednesday afternoon at Newman Park.  The Catawba Indians improve to 16-11 overall, while the Tornado fall to 10-7.

Matt Morris (Sweetwater, TN) put King on top in the opening half inning, driving home Joe Craven (Franklin, TN) with a single to right.  Catawba answered right back, scoring five times after two were out in its first.  Jerry Sands (Clayton, NC) and Ryan Query (Kannapolis, NC) hit back-to-back homers, while Zach Evans (Greensboro, NC) added a two-run shot.  Zeb Link (Woodleaf, NC) doubled home the final run.

Catawba would stretch its lead in the third.  Chad Baker (Jamestown, NC) led off with a home run and Query capped the outburst with a two-run double.  Tim Smith (Walnut Cove, NC) got the win, allowing just four hits over his four innings.  The Tornado threatened in the fifth, but left the bases loaded.
