Baseball's Rally Comes Up Short Against Barton

SALISBURY, NC -- Barton’s Ryan Daughtry (Princeton, NC) went 4-for-4 with three RBI to lead the Bulldogs over host Catawba 10-7 in baseball action on Wednesday afternoon at Newman Park.  The Bulldog’s improve to 4-8 overall, while the Catawba Indians fall to 9-3.

After scoring run in the first, Barton put up a five spot in the second.  Phillip Williams (Gibson, NC) started things with a lead off walk and came around to score on a double by Jordan Smith (Longmont, CO).  After another walk and a hit-by-pitch, David Gibbons (Wilson, NC) singled in another run for the Bulldogs.  Daughtry then singled home two and Zac Crumpler (Wilson, NC) added a final RBI single for a 6-0 lead.

In the fifth, the Bulldog’s tacked on four more runs behind key singles by Smith and Gibbons, which drove in two, accounting for three of the four runs.  A sacrifice fly by Daughtry would bring home the final Barton run.

Catawba would final get on the board in the sixth after a Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS) sacrifice fly.  Austin Moyer (Greensboro, NC/SE Guilford HS/USC Upstate) followed with a two-run homer to bring the score to 10-3.  The Indians continued to rally in the eighth when Furr crossed the plate on a throwing error by the Bulldogs and Brett Underwood (Greensboro, NC/SW Guilford HS) drew a bases-loaded walk.

The Indians made things interesting in the ninth, getting the winning run to the plate with two outs.  A single and three walks cut the margin to 10-6 and Michael Whited (Greensboro, NC/Ragsdale HS) added a two-out single to pull the Tribe within 10-7.  Barton’s Mitchell Frazier (Oxford, NC) then struck out Underwood with bases loaded to end the game and pick up his first save of the season. 

Tribe starter Joe Kase (Palm Harbor, FL/Tarpon Springs HS/S. Florida CC) received the loss. Kase went one and a third innings, allowing four runs on two hits with three walks.  Bentley Massey (Wilson, NC) tossed the win for Barton.  He went five and two-third innings, allowing three runs off five hits with four strikeouts. 

Smith followed Daughtry with three hits and added two RBI, while Clay Martin (Pittsboro, NC) also collected three hits.  Blake Houston (Mt. Ulla, NC/S. Rowan HS) had two hits for Catawba.
