Wingate was held to three hits in the nightcap by Tim Holmes (Bay Village, OH/Bay HS), who went five innings.  Only one of the three runs he allowed was earned and he fanned five.  Josh Hohn (Greensboro, NC/S. Guilford HS) and Brett Hatley (Salisbury, NC/W. Rowan HS) each went 3-for-4 with four RBI and a home run to lead the Tribe offense.

Wingate scored four runs in the first inning of the opener to grab control.  Casey Allison (Horse Shoe, NC) drew a leadoff walk and scored on a two-run homer by Chris Vazquez (Tyrone, GA).  McPherson had a key two-out, two-run single.  Catawba cut the lead in half on Query’s two-run homer in the Indian first.

Hohn put Catawba on top 1-0 with a solo home run in the first inning of game two.  Logan Isaacs (Wakefield, NC) gave the Bulldogs a 2-1 lead with a two-out single in the second, but Catawba answered with 11 runs in its second inning to blow the game open.

Hohn gave Catawba a 5-2 lead with a three-run double and Hatley connected on a grand slam for a 10-2 edge.  Jake Faggart (Concord, NC/NW Cabarrus HS) added a two-run homer to cap the inning.  Catawba hit four homers in the second game as Craige Lyerly (Salisbury, NC/E.
