Zubillaga's Four Hits Help Baseball Get Past Newberry in Series Opener
SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba claimed its fifth straight win with a 13-5 victory over visiting Newberry in South Atlantic Conference baseball action on Friday night at Newman Park. Julio Zubillaga (China Grove, NC/Carson HS) had four hits and JJ Jankowski (McMurray, PA/Peters Township HS/Miami,OH) improved to 4-0 as the 23rd-ranked Catawba Indians upped its record to 11-4 overall and 6-1 in the SAC. The Wolves fell to 8-9 and 4-3.

Robby Scaggs (North Augusta, SC) put Newberry up early with a solo home run in the first. Greg Lawson (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS) singled home a run with two outs to tie the game for Catawba in the second then the Indians took the lead for good in the third.
Ryan Bostian (Kannapolis, NC/S. Rowan HS/Montreat HS) led off the inning with a home run and Catawba tacked on two more in the frame as Zubillaga scored on a steal of home and Ethan Satterfield (Madison, NC/McMichael HS) singled home a run. Zubillaga connected on a two-run homer to extend Catawba’s lead to 6-2 after four.
