Satterfield Homers in 5-4 Loss to #17 USC Aiken


SALISBURY, NC -- USC Aiken broke a 4-4 tie in the eighth and held off host Catawba for a 5-4 win in baseball action on Wednesday night at Newman Park.  The 17th-ranked Pacers improve to 27-10, while the Catawba Indians fall to 24-15.

The Pacers grabbed a 4-0 lead after two innings.  Ty Barkell (Denver, CO) got it started with a two-out, two-run homer for USCA in the first.  A walk and a hit batter helped produce two more runs in the second.  Those leadoff runners were advanced to second and scored on an infield single by Sean Miller (Crofton, MD) and a single up the middle by Kody Belcher (Martinez, GA).

Catawba erased the deficit in the fourth.  Blake Houston (Mt. Ulla, NC/S. Rowan HS) and Paul Kronenfeld (Greensboro, NC/Woodberry Forest HS/Georgia Tech) drew leadoff walks.  Keaton Hawks (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) singled home the first run and Ethan Satterfield (Madison, NC/McMichael HS) followed with a three-run homer to left center. 

Ben Black (Augusta, GA), who came on to get the Pacers out of the third, posted three shutout innings as did Shaefer Shepard (Boca Raton, FL/Boca Raton HS/Francis Marion) for Catawba.  Shepard allowed two hits, walked one and posted one strikeout over the middle frames.  Black fanned four and allowed four hits over three and two-thirds innings.

The Pacers reclaimed the lead in the eighth.  Barkell led off with a single and Matt Bosse (Baltimore, MD) stole second after hitting into a fielder’s choice.  Ryan Metzler (Glen Bernie, MD) drove in the winning run with a single through the hole to left.

The Indians had a chance in the ninth.  Malachi Hanes (Charlotte, NC/Butler HS) drew a leadoff walk and pinch-runner Gary Williams (Southport, NC/S. Brunswick HS) was sacrificed to second.  Houston then singled off the arm of pitcher Taylor Peed (St. Leonard, MD) to put runners on the corners.  James Lynch (St. Petersburg, FL) relived Peed and after Houston stole second he walked Kronenfeld intentionally.  Lynch got Hawks to ground to second into a double play to end it.

Peed (4-1) would get the win.  He allowed a single, a walk and struck out three over two and a third innings.  Lynch notched his second save. 

Belcher led Aiken at the plate with three hits.  Barkell and Metzler each had two hits.  Hawks and Satterfield had two hits for Catawba.

Catawba travels to Tusculum this weekend for a key South Atlantic Conference series at Pioneer Park.  The three-game set will open Friday night at 6 p.m.
