Link Drives in Four as Baseball Tops Barton 11-2
WILSON, NC -- Freshman Ross Whitley (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) allowed just two hits over six innings and Zeb Link (Woodleaf, NC/W. Rowan HS) drove in four runs as Catawba knocked off host Barton 11-2 in baseball action on Wednesday afternoon at Nixon Field. The Catawba Indians improve to 25-7 overall, while the Bulldogs fall to 19-18.
Craige Lyerly (Salisbury, NC/E. Rowan HS) singled home a run in the first and Brett Hatley (Salisbury, NC/W. Rowan HS) scored on a wild pitch in the second as Catawba grabbed the early lead. Whitley did not allow hit through four frames before a one-out single by Braxton Lewis in the fifth.
The Indians broke the game open in the sixth by scoring five runs. John Neese (Summerfield, NC/NW Guilford HS/Guilford Tech) opened the frame with a solo home run and Link later added a two-run double. Barton got on the board in the sixth as Whitley’s second hit allowed was a two-run homer by Chris Rawlings.
Barton managed only one more hit in the game after Whitley departed following six innings with the 8-2 lead. Whitley struck out two, walked none and hit a batter as he upped his record to 3-0. Link singled home two more runs in the seventh to cap the scoring.
Brett Underwood (Greensboro, NC/SW Guilford HS) had three hits and scored three runs for the Tribe. Link and Neese each had two hits. Lewis had two of the three Barton hits.
