Baseball Cruises to 19-3 Win Over Lenoir-Rhyne


SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba pounded out 21 hits en route to a 19-3 win over visiting Lenoir-Rhyne in non-conference baseball action on Tuesday afternoon at Newman Park.  With the win, the Catawba Indians improve to 11-5, while the Bears fall to 7-9.

The Bears grabbed a quick lead on a home run by Daniel Ford (Germantown, MD) in the opening inning.  David Thomas (Winston-Salem, NC/Ledford HS) answered with a solo homer of his own in the Catawba first to tie the score.  The Indians scored three times in the second inning then broke the game open by scoring 11 times over the middle three frames.

After Ryan Query (Kannapolis, NC/Brown HS) opened the second inning with a double, Chad Baker (Jamestown, NC/Ragsdale HS) singled to put the Tribe up for good.  Chris Ahearn (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS) and Bubba Morris (Spencer, NC/N. Rowan HS) also had run-scoring hits in the inning.  Jerry Sands (Clayton, NC/Smithfield-Selma HS) had a two-run single in a three-run fourth to put the Indians up 7-1.

Baker, Ahearn and Andrew O’Neal (King, NC/W. Stokes HS) each had three hits for Catawba, while Ahearn added three RBI and scored three runs.  Baker and Zeb Link (Woodleaf, NC/W. Rowan HS) also scored three times, while Baker had three of Catawba’s eight stolen bases.  Craige Lyerly (Salisbury, NC/E. Rowan HS) and Kevin McMillan (Salisbury, NC/N. Rowan HS) each added home runs for the Tribe.

Ford would go 4-for-4 in a losing effort for Lenoir-Rhyne.  Hank Wofford (Clover, SC) had two hits, while Jake Hartley (Bluffton, SC) had a pinch-hit home run.  Wil Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly HS) got the win for Catawba, allowing four hits and one run over his four innings.
