BB_11_HawksKeatonBC

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba earned a pair of wins in baseball action on Sunday at Newman Park.  The 18th-ranked Catawba Indians downed Mars Hill 14-2 then topped Pfeiffer 7-5 to improve to 2-1 on the year.

In the first game, the afternoon tilt with Mars Hill, Catawba rapped out 18 hits in grabbing the 14-2 victory.  The Indians batted first and grabbed the early lead on a two-triple by Keaton Hawks (Lexington, NC/Parkwood HS) that plated a pair of runs.  He scored on a balk for a 3-0 edge.  Leading 4-2 after four frames, the Indians began to pull away, scoring four in the fifth which was capped by a three-run double with two outs by Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS).

JJ Jankowski (McMurray, PA/ Peters Township/Miami,OH) went seven strong innings to gain the win.  He allowed two runs off four hits with nine strikeouts.  Hawks added a double and scored three runs.  Greg Lawson (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS) collected a pair of hits with a RBI and scored twice.  Furr, Ryan Bostian (Kannapolis, NC/S. Rowan HS/Montreat), Julio Zubillaga (China Grove, NC/Carson HS) and Cameron Beard (Conover, NC/Bunker Hill HS) also had two hits. 

In game two under the lights, freshman Craig Brooks (Monroe, NC/Piedmont HS) snapped a 5-all tie with a two-run homer in the eighth to propel the Tribe.  The Falcons had battled back from a 5-3 deficit in the top of the eighth, scoring twice on a grounder by Dalton Lindley that took a bad hop under the glove of Brooks with two out. 

Pfeiffer had led early, scoring an unearned run in the third.  The Falcons stretched the margin to 3-0 in the fourth on back-to-back RBI doubles by Lindley and Aarin Sharpe.  The Indians pulled even in their fourth, benefitting from a pair of Falcon errors.  Hawks singled home a run and Ethan Satterfield (Madison, NC/McMichael HS) scored the tying run on a wild pitch.

Catawba went on top in the seventh.  After another Pfeiffer error, Bostian brought home a run on a sacrifice fly.  Furr added another run on a single.  The Falcons got those runs back in the eighth on the two-out error.   

Ross Whitley (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) picked up the win in relief.  He tossed four innings of one-hit ball and allowed two unearned runs with three strikeouts.  John Tuttle (Kannapolis, NC/A.L. Brown HS) went the first five innings and fanned seven.  Furr had two hits.
