King Pitches Baseball Past Top-Seeded Mount Olive

MOUNT OLIVE, NC – Senior Nate King (Vancouver, WA/Skyview HS/NC State) threw a complete game as 21st-ranked Catawba staved off elimination with a 3-2 win over fourth-ranked Mount Olive at the 2012 NCAA II Southeast Region Baseball Tournament on Friday afternoon at Scarborough Field.  The fifth-seeded Catawba Indians improve to 40-15 and will play again on Saturday at 4:30 p.m.  The top-seeded Trojans see their season come to an end at 44-10.

The Indians managed just three hits of Mount Olive’s Jake Moser, but benefitted from six walks to eke out the win.  Moser (10-3) went eight innings and allowed three runs, two earned, while striking out three.

Catawba went on top in the bottom of the fourth, loading the bases with no outs on a single by Ryan Bostian (Kannapolis, NC/S. Rowan HS/Montreat) and walks to Ethan Satterfield (Madison, NC/McMichael HS) and Garrett Furr (Gold Hill, NC/Mt. Pleasant HS).  Moser limited Catawba to just a single run which came on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Julio Zubillaga (China Grove, NC/Carson HS).

The Trojan answered back in the fifth with a pair of runs to take the lead.  Braden Reitano and Cameron Sherrer led off the frame with doubles with Reitano tying the game as he scored on a ground out by Will Bynum.  Sherrer scored on a passed ball to give the hosts a 2-1 edge.

The Indians would load the bases in the fifth with one out.  Keaton Hawks (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) had an infield single then Chris Dula (Troutman, NC/S. Iredell HS) walked and Bostian was hit by a pitch.  Satterfield lifted a fly ball to score Hawks and tie the contest.

An error by the Trojans with one out in the seventh led the go-ahead run for Catawba as Dula reached on a bat throw.  The sophomore stole second then was able to block the view of Trojan third baseman Jermaine Berry on a grounder from Satterfield.  The ball glanced off Berry’s glove and Dula raced home to beat a high throw from shortstop Mike Mercurio to put Catawba up 3-2.

King did the rest as he allowed only one baserunner over the final two frames, coming on a two out walk to Berry in the eighth.  The lefty scattered seven hits to improve to 5-2 in just his sixth start of the season.  Of the two runs he allowed, only one was earned.  King walked two and fanned eight.
