Lomascolo Keeps Wingate Bats Silent And Baseball Undefeated In SAC With 7-3 Win


SALISBURY, NC -- Chris Dula (Troutman, NC/S. Iredell HS) drove in three runs and Nick Lomascolo (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) tossed eight strong innings as Catawba downed visiting Wingate 7-3 in South Atlantic Conference baseball action on Friday night at Newman Park.  The Catawba Indians, ranked 23rd in NCAA II, improved to 13-4, while the Bulldogs fall to 14-8 and 4-3.

The Indians broke open a tight game in the fourth on home runs by Josh Hohn (Greensboro, NC/S. Guilford HS/N. Greenville) and Austin Moyer (Greensboro, NC/SE Guilford HS/USC Upstate) for a 5-1 lead.  Dula added a two-run double in the sixth for a 7-1 edge.

Catawba opened the scoring with an unearned run in the first then got a RBI groundout from Dula in the third.  Wingate pulled a run back in the fourth on back-to-back doubles by Cale Rogers (Snow Camp, NC) and Dodson McPherson (Graham, NC), but Lomascolo stranded a pair to keep the Indians up 2-1.

Hohn led off the Catawba fourth with a solo home run and Moyer followed with a two-run shot following a single from Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS).  Lomascolo (3-1) held Wingate to just that single run through his eight innings.  He surrendered five hits, walked one and struck out nine.

The Bulldogs mounted a rally in the ninth with an error and two singles to load the bases with no outs.  Wil Huneycutt (Locust, NC/W. Stanly HS) got a key double play grounder to short and ended the game on a fly out after a RBI single by Chris Vazquez (Tyrone, GA). 

Dula had two doubles and the three RBI to pace the Indian offense.  Brett Underwood (Greensboro, NC/SW Guilford HS) also had a pair of hits.  Rogers and Cody Shelton (Charlotte, NC) each collected two hits for Wingate.  Chris Nelson (Greenville, NC) fell to 2-1 with the loss for the Bulldogs.  He allowed four earned runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts over five and two-thirds innings.
