Baseball Stays Perfect In SAC With Doubleheader Sweep at Mars Hill

11_BB_DulaChrisTC

MARS HILL, NC -- Catawba stayed undefeated in South Atlantic Conference play by sweeping a baseball doubleheader from host Mars Hill on Saturday afternoon at Henderson Field.  The Catawba Indians held on for a 9-8 win in the opener then rolled to a 14-1 victory in game two.  Catawba improves to 11-3 overall and 5-0 in the SAC, while the Lions fall to 7-10 and 2-3.

The Indians scored four runs in the seventh of the opener to go on top 9-6 then Ross Whitley (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) got the final out after the Lions had scored twice and had the tying run at third in the ninth.  After an out and a walk in their final at bat, the Lions strung together four straight singles.  A pick-off at first erased one of the baserunners as Mars Hill scored its final run.  Whitley got Tyler Reboulet on a fly ball to center to end the game.
 
In the Catawba seventh, Chris Dula’s (Troutman, NC/S. Iredell HS) two-out single tied the game at 6-all and John Neese (Summerfield, NC/NW Guilford HS/Guilford Tech) followed with a three-run homer to give the Indians their 9-6 edge.  Mars Hill had taken a 6-5 lead in the see-saw affair on a two-out, two-run double by Adam Lewis.

Mars Hill rapped out 16 hits with Lewis and Michael Bueker each colleting three apiece.  Bueker and Coty Pate hit game-tying homers for the Lions in the early innings.  Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS) also homered for the Indians, who produced 13 hits.

Wil Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly HS) got the win in relief for Catawba.  He threw three innings, allowing two runs off five hits.  Whitley posted his second save by recording the final out.

In game two, Catawba scored three runs in the second to give starter JJ Jankowski (McMurray, PA/Peters Township HS/Miami,OH) the only support he would need.  The Indians broke the game open with five-run frames in the fifth and sixth innings.

Jankowski went five innings and allowed no runs off three hits while striking out nine.  Greg Lawson (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS), who singled home a run in the second, had a three-run double in the fifth.  He finished with three hits and five RBI.

Dula, who had a pair of hits in the opener, went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI in the nightcap.  Ryan Bostian (Kannapolis, NC/S. Rowan HS/Montreat) and Brett Underwood (Greensboro, NC/SW Guilford HS) each scored three runs.  Reboulet helped Mars Hill avoid the shutout with a two-out RBI single in the seventh.  He had two hits along with Michael Brittian.
