Baseball Splits Doubleheader with Carson-Newman


SALISBURY, NC -- Ethan Satterfield (Madison, NC/McMichael HS) went 6-for-7 from the plate with four RBI as Catawba defeated Carson-Newman 13-6 in game one and lost 4-3 in the second Saturday afternoon at Newman Park. The Indians are 28-8 overall and 19-2 in the SAC while the Eagles go to 19-20 and 10-11.

The Indians did the bulk of their damage in game one during the second off reliever Brandon Timmerman who had to come in for starter Robby Thigpen after just one inning due to an arm injury.

The inning should had ended on a Ryan Bostian (Kannapolis, NC/S. Rowan HS/Montreat) grounder to Eagle shortstop Troy Zawadzki, but an error allowed Bostian to reach and the Indians jumped on the opportunity. The error scored Greg Lawson (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS) and two singles by Julio Zubillaga (China Grove, NC/Carson HS) and Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS) brought in two runners. Chris Dula (Troutman, NC/S. Iredell HS) then hit his second home run in as many days to drive in three more for the early 6-1 advantage.

Winning pitcher Nick Lomascolo (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) gave up his only earned run in the second and coasted through his remaining five innings of work giving up five hits while striking out 10. The junior improved to 7-3 on the season.

The Eagles scored two in the eighth and three in the ninth off relievers Ross Whitley (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) and Graham Lawing (Huntersville, NC/NW Cabarrus/Wilkes CC) to make it look respectable. Ryan McClintock finished things off with the final two outs.

Carson-Newman got a two-run blast from Kyle Koeneman in the first inning of game two to jump out to the early lead on Catawba starter John Tuttle (Kannapolis, NC/A.L. Brown HS). The Eagles made it 3-0 in the fourth as Cody Fox scored when a fielding error by Dula allowed him in.

Two straight doubles by Satterfield and Cameron Beard (Conover, NC/Bunker Hill HS) to lead off the Catawba fourth helped revive the Indians. Beard brought in Satterfield and Beard scored on a wild pitch to make it a one-run game.

Catawba tied the game at three in the sixth when pinch-runner Justin Morris (Salisbury, NC/E. Rowan HS) came in from third on a passed ball from winning pitcher Ryan Fillers. Morris was running for JJ Jankowski (McMurray, PA/Peters Township HS/Miami, OH) whose lead-off single set up the dramatics.

The jubilation would be short-lived as Philip Duncan’s double down the left field line to start the seventh would set himself up to score the winning run. Three batters later Lance Reed’s single to right plated Duncan for the 4-3 lead.

Satterfield hit a two-out single to center in the Indian seventh, but Beard struck out swinging to end the threat and game. 

Nate King (2-2) (Vancouver, WA/Skyview HS/NC State) took the loss for Catawba after pitching 2 1/3 and giving up a run and three hits.  Zubillaga had five hits on the day with an RBI and two runs scored.  
Catawba hosts St. Andrews for a non-conference matchup on Tuesday, Apr. 3 at 6 p.m.
