06_baseball_0031

MARS HILL, NC -- Catawba’s late rally fell short as the Indians dropped an 8-7 decision at Mars Hill in baseball action on Friday afternoon at Henderson Field.  The Lions snap Catawba’s 11-game winning streak and improve to 18-28 overall and 7-14 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 27-13 and 11-8.

The Lions used a seven-run fourth inning to grab the lead.  After an unearned run in the first, Mars Hill fell behind after three innings.  Catawba opened the third with a single by Lee Page (Dillon, SC) and a double by Craig Lyerly (Salisbury, NC).  Chad Baker (Jamestown, NC) and Ryan Query (Kannapolis, NC) had RBI groundouts to score the runs.

In the fourth, Mars Hill tied the game on a RBI grounder by Devon Presnell (Boone, NC) then scored the final six runs with two outs.  James Dean (Lake Butler, FL) and Marc Wassum (Winter Park, FL) had run-scoring singles before Brian Williams (Orlando, FL) delivered a two-run single for a 6-2 lead.  Jonathan Helsabeck (Rural Hall, NC) and David DeSilva (Charlotte, NC) also had RBI singles in the frame.

Catawba got a run back in the fifth on a two-out single by Jerry Sands (Clayton, NC) and added two runs with two outs in the eighth.  Bubba Morris (Spencer, NC) singled home a run and Page had a RBI double.

In the ninth, Baker walked, Query doubled and Sands walked to load the bases.  David Thomas (Winston-Salem, NC) grounded to first to score a run and Zach Evans (Greensboro, NC) walked to reload the bases.  Brian Sommer (New Port Richey, FL) brought home a run with a groundout to short, but Morris grounded out to short to end the game.

Page and Sands led Catawba with two hits apiece.  Matt Seabolt (Asheboro, NC) entered in relief in the fourth and allowed the RBI single to DeSilva, but would allow only three more hits the rest of the way. 

Wassum and DeSilva each had three hits for Mars Hill, while Nick Tracy (Herndon, VA) improved to 5-1 with eight innings on the mound.  He allowed 10 hits and four earned runs.
