Baseball Rallies Past Pfeiffer With Pair of Five-Run Innings

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba rallied from a six-run deficit to defeat visiting 10-6 Pfeiffer in baseball action on Tuesday night at Newman Park.  The Catawba Indians improve to 24-12, while the Falcons fall to 18-18.

Bryan Braxton (Hillsborough, NC) put Pfeiffer on the board with a solo homer in the first then the Falcons scored five times in the third.  Ryan Brown (Concord, NC) had a RBI double and Kyle Pugh (Asheboro, NC) a RBI single before Zack Pou (Stanley, NC) hit a three-run homer for the early 6-0 edge.

Zach Strickland (Liberty, NC) held Catawba to just two hits over the first five innings, but the Indians began their rally in the sixth.  Jerry Sands (Clayton, NC) cut the lead in half with a three-run homer to chase Strickland then Craig Lyerly (Salisbury, NC) had a RBI single and Chad Baker (Jamestown, NC) a bases-loaded walk off reliever Tim Peele (Lexington, NC) to pull within 6-5.

The Indians took the lead with another five-run frame in the seventh.  David Thomas (Winston-Salem, NC) doubled with one out and Zach Evans (Greensboro, NC) followed with a home run for a 7-6 lead.  Lee Page (Dillon, SC) added some insurance with a three-run homer.

Alex Fairweather (Lenoir, NC) settled down after being roughed up in the third, allowing just one hit with one walk over the next four innings.  Brett Hatley (Salisbury, NC) finished things off, giving up just one hit with a walk in his two innings on the mound.

Fairweather improved to 5-2, while Peele (1-2) took the loss.  Thomas had three hits for Catawba, while Evans, Lyerly and Bubba Morris (Spencer, NC) each chipped in with two hits.  Braxton had two hits for the Falcons.
