Baseball Comes Up Short Against Winston-Salem
WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- Winston-Salem State pitcher Aaron Hatch held visiting Catawba to four hits over seven innings as the Rams posted a 4-2 win in baseball action on Tuesday night at BB&T Ballpark. WSSU improves to 27-13, while the Catawba Indians fall to 24-14.
Two of Catawba's hits off Hatch came in the second inning. Ethan Satterfield led off with a single and came around to score on a two-out hit by Cameron Beard (Conover, NC/Bunker Hill HS). The Rams got that run back in the bottom half. Colby Keene's lead off single was followed by a sacrifice, a hit batter and a walk to load the bases. Gavin Culler got the run in with a sacrifice fly.
The game stayed tied as Hatch and Catawba starter Michael Trombino (Boca Raton, FL/Calvary Academy) put up zeros through the fifth. Trombino got into trouble in the sixth as he walked two around a hit batter with one out. Pinch-hitter Alex Grubb greeted reliever Ryan McClintock (Matthews, NC/Providence HS) with a RBI single to put the Rams on top. Culler plated a second run on a fielder's choice for a 3-1 edge.
The Indians pulled a run back in the eighth. Keaton Hawks (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) led off with a single and Satterfield walked. Both moved up a groundout and Hawks scored on ground ball by T.J. Wharton (Lutz, FL/Bishop McLaughlin HS/Guilford Tech). WSSU answered as Rafael Gonzalez singled home a run in the bottom half.
Devin McLemore set down Catawba in order in the ninth to claim his fifth save. Hatch improved to 4-3 with the win. He walked four and struck out three in his seven frames.
Trombino (1-3) took the loss, allowing three runs off of just three hits in five and a third innings. He walked four and hit two to go along with three strikeouts.
Satterfield had two of the five Catawba hits. Keene had two hits and scored twice for WSSU. Grubb also had two hits and Culler picked up the two RBI without a hit.
Catawba is at home on Wednesday night, hosting 17th-ranked USC Aiken at 6 p.m.
