Baseball Falls to Newberry 5-1
GREENVILLE, SC – Brandon Petty tossed a complete game five-hitter to help Newberry knock off visiting Catawba 5-1 in South Atlantic Conference baseball action on Friday night at Municipal Stadium. The win lifts Newberry to 18-26 overall and 11-10 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 28-15 and 11-9.
Consecutive run-scoring doubles in the second inning by Brandon Gardner and Anthony Dellinger spark the hosts to an early 3-0 lead. Newberry increased its lead to 4-0 with an unearned run in the fourth. That was enough for Perry, who allowed the five hits with one walk and nine strikeouts.
Catawba scored its lone run in the sixth as Jerry Sands (Clayton, NC) doubled home Chad Baker (Jamestown, NC). Tim Smith (Walnut Cove, NC) took the loss with a complete game effort. He surrendered nine hits and four earned runs with four walks and six strikeouts. Baker collected two of the Tribe’s five hits.
