Baseball Has Win Streak Stopped at Eight With Loss at West Alabama


LIVINGSTON, AL -- West Alabama rode four early runs to a 6-3 victory over visiting Catawba in baseball action at Tartt Field on Tuesday night.  The Tigers improve to 9-10, while the Catawba Indians fall to 14-5, ending an eight-game winning streak.

West Alabama erased an early 1-0 deficit as it loaded the bases in the first with a hit batter, a walk and a single.  D.J. Turo put the Tigers on top with a two-run single and West Alabama added two more runs before the inning was over.

The Tigers scored two more runs in the fifth.  Tyler Richburg doubled home a run and Micah Reaves had a RBI single.  Taylor Bratton and four relievers combined to hold the lead.  Bratton went six innings, allowing one run on three hits to grab the win.

Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS) put the Indians on top with a first-inning single.  He also drove in another run in the eighth.  Catawba eventually got the tying run to the plate in the ninth and picked up a run when Ethan Satterfield (Madison, NC.McMichael HS) scored on a wild pitch.  Brett Ivey came on to get the final out, getting Ryan Bostian (Kannapolis, NC/S. Rowan HS/Montreat) on a ground out.
