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.
