Baseball Squeaks By Stillman 4-3 Once Again
TUSCALOOSA, AL -- For the second straight day, 23rd-ranked Catawba picked up a 4-3 win over host Stillman in baseball action on Wednesday afternoon at Tiger Field. The Catawba Indians improve to 15-5, while the Tigers fall to 2-12.
The Indians escaped when John Tuttle (Kannapolis, NC/A.L. Brown HS) worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the ninth. He had worked a perfect eighth before Stillman got a pair of singles and walk in the ninth. Tuttle got a ground out to third to erase a runner at the plate then a grounder to first to post the save.
Catawba scored single runs in four of the first five innings to lead. Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS) forced home a run on ground out in the first and JJ Jankowski (McMurray, PA/Peters Township HS/Miami,OH) connected on his first homer in the second for a 2-0 edge.
Down 3-1 after Chris Dula (Troutman, NC/S. Iredell HS) delivered a RBI on a ground out, Stillman picked up a pair of runs in the third to tie the score. Dion Bryant and Jarius Brown singled home the runs.
Catawba scored the winning run in the fifth. Craig Brooks (Monroe, NC/Parkwood HS) led off with a double and went to third on a single by Ryan Bostian (Kannapolis, NC/S. Rowan HS/Montreat). Julio Zubillaga (China Grove, NC/Carson HS) got the run in on a sacrifice fly.
Joe Kase (Palm Harbor, FL/Tarpon Springs HS/S. Florida CC) got his first win of the season. He went five innings and allowed three runs on four hits. He got shutout relief help from Clay Watson (Lexington, NC/N. Davidson HS), Nick Lomascolo (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) and Tuttle.
Bostian and Brooks each had two hits for the Indians. Bryant and Brown had two hits for Stillman.
