Satterfield and Zubillaga Help Baseball Take Two from L-R


HICKORY, NC -- Julio Zubillaga (China Grove, NC/Carson HS) and Ethan Satterfield (Madison, NC/McMichael HS) combined for nine hits and seven RBI to lift fifth-ranked Catawba over Lenoir-Rhyne 7-5 and 11-3 Saturday afternoon at Bears Field. Catawba moves to 26-7 overall and 17-1 in the SAC while the Bears drop to 9-26 and 5-13.

Zubillaga started his day off with a double in the first inning of game one and scored on the next play on a throwing error by Bears third baseman Mike Mastroberti.

Winning pitcher JJ Jankowski (McMurray, PA/Peters Township HS/Miami, OH) had two outs in the bottom of the first then gave up a double, a walk and a three-run homer to Colton Hansley that pushed L-R ahead 3-1.

In the Catawba third, Brett Underwood (Greensboro, NC/SW Guilford HS) scored after reaching base on a wild pitch and Chris Dula (Troutman, NC/S. Iredell HS) knocked out a two-run shot to get the Indians back out in front 4-3.

Lenoir-Rhyne answered right back in its half of the inning as a Hansley single brought in Mike Gasque. Ivan Vieitez then stole home while Hansley tried to take second.

Ryan Bostian (Kannapolis, NC/S. Rowan HS/Montreat) tied it at five all in the fourth with a single to left field that sent Greg Lawson (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS) home.

Two more errors by Mastroberti in the fifth allowed Catawba to go ahead for good. Dula reached on a fielding mistake and Keaton Hawks (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) by a bad throw. Lawson scored Dula and Cameron Beard (Conover, NC/Bunker Hill HS) with a single to left center.

Jankowski (7-0) settled down as he shut out the Bears in the last five innings allowing seven hits overall and striking out 10 while going the distance on the mound. Jared Carroll took the loss for the Bears giving up one earned run on six hits through five innings.

Game two was tied 2-2 after two innings of play, but the Indians scored multiple runs in every inning except the fifth to get finish off the series sweep.

Satterfield got the hit parade going for Catawba in the third as his triple sent home Dula and Zubillaga. Beard then singled in Satterfield on the next play to put the Indians up for good.

Another triple by Satterfield in the fourth scored Bostian and Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS) as Catawba went up 7-2. Zubillaga finished off the scoring for the Indians in the seventh on a double to left center that scored Danny Parisi (Shirley, NY/Longwood HS) and Underwood.

Nick Lomascolo (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) secured the win for Catawba improving to 6-3 as he pitched six solid innings allowing two earned runs on nine hits while striking out four. Aaron Bentley picked up the loss for L-R giving up five earned runs and seven hits.
