Baseball Opens Carson-Newman Series With 9-4 Win


KODAK, TN -- Catawba rallied from an early deficit to claim a 9-4 win over host Carson-Newman in South Atlantic Conference baseball action on Friday night at Smokies Park.  The Catawba Indians, ranked 21st in NCAA II, improves to 30-8 overall and 18-4 in the SAC.  The Eagles fall to 17-23 and 13-9.

Jonathan Dalton doubled home a run in the first inning for Carson-Newman and the Eagles scored twice on bunts in the second frame to go up 3-0.  Catawba got a run back in the third on a single by Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt.

Catawba added a run in the seventh as Underwood scored on a ground out by Julio Zubillaga (China Grove, NC/Carson HS) and tacked on two in the eighth on a single by Austin Moyer (Greensboro, NC/SE Guilford HS/USC Upstate).  That was enough for Nick Lomascolo (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS), who went seven innings to improve to 7-1.  He allowed two earned runs off five hits with three walks and three strikeouts.  Clay Watson (Lexington, NC/N. Davidson HS) finished off the final two frames.
