MVP Bostian Delivers Six RBI as Baseball Claims SAC Tournament Title


FOREST CITY, NC -- Ryan Bostian (Kannapolis, NC/S. Rowan HS/Montreat) had four hits and six RBI to help Catawba claim the 2010 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Baseball Tournament title with a 16-5 victory over Mars Hill on Sunday afternoon at McNair Field.  The Catawba Indians, seeded third, claim its second straight tournament title and secure a berth in the NCAA Division II Southeast Region Tournament.  The Indians, ranked 24th in NCAA II, improve to 38-10 on the year.  The second-seeded Lions fall to 29-17.

Bostian, the tournament MVP, scored Catawba’s first run then added a two-run single in a five-run second that put the Indians up 6-1.  Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS) also had a two-run single in the inning.  Wade Moore (Salisbury, NC/W. Rowan HS/NC State) doubled home two runs in the third and Criage Lyerly (Salisbury, NC/E. Rowan HS) doubled home another for a 9-2 edge after three frames.

Mars Hill battled back, scoring three times in the fourth.  Patrick Davidson singled home a run and a two-out error allowed two more Lion runs to score as Mars Hill closed within 9-5.  Bostian stole the momentum back for Catawba, belting a three-run homer in the fifth for a 12-5 edge.

Travis McSweeney (Palm Harbor, FL/East Lake HS) was stellar in relief to keep the Lions from getting back into the game.  He posted the final out of the fourth then added four more shutout frames on just a single hit.  Keith Carrigan (Harrisburg, NC/C. Cabarrus HS) got the final three outs to secure the championship.

Moore and Bostian each scored four times for the Indians.  Lyerly and Furr each had two hits and three RBI.  Lyerly was named to the all-tournament team with Bostian along with pitchers Nick Lomascolo (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS), Clay Watson (Lexington, NC/N. Davidson HS) and Wil Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly HS).

Kris Torrance delivered three hits for the Lions with Mike Kitt and Devin Presnell each picking up two.  Presnell and Torrance, along with Kevin Searcy and Justin Hall were all-tournament picks for Mars Hill.
