SALISBURY, NC -- Barton College defeated host Catawba 10-4 in baseball action on Wednesday afternoon at Newman Park. The Bulldogs rapped out 14 hits, including three home runs, to improve to 20-25. Catawba fell to 24-17.Catawba got a run in the first, as Blair Reynolds (King, NC) scored on a balk. Barton would take the lead for good in the third inning on a two-run homer by Trevor Lawhorn. A two-out, bases-clearing triple by Justin Wilkes in the fourth extended the lead to 5-1. Barton got a two-run homer by Dennis Blackmon in the seventh and led 8-1 in the eighth before a Tribe rally. Catawba’s first six batters reached base with Chad Hill (Bennett, NC) driving home a run with a single and Matt Smith (Browns Summitt, NC) followed with a two run single.

Clay went 4-for-5 with his homer and two RBI, while Wilkes was 3-for-5 with four RBI.
