14_BB_TuttleJohnBA

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba notched season highs with 21 hits and 17 runs in rolling to a 17-9 Senior Day win over Belmont Abbey in baseball action on Tuesday night at Newman Park.  The win improves Catawba to 28-16, while the Crusaders fall to 17-28.

Catawba had 10 seniors and several said goodbye to their home park with huge games.  Paul Kronenfeld (Greensboro, NC/Woodberry Forest/Georgia Tech) led the way with three hits and four RBI.  He was joined with three hits by fellow seniors Keaton Hawks (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) and Jon Wallace (Salisbury, NC/NW Cabarrus HS/Lynchburg). 

The Indians also had big offensive games from Blake Houston (Mt. Ulla, NC/S. Rowan HS), who had three hits, scored three runs and collected three RBI; and Craig Brooks (Monroe, NC/Parkwood HS), who drove in three runs on a pair of hits.

After Belmont Abbey pushed across a run in the top of the first, Catawba used a pair of key errors to answer with a five spot in the bottom half.  Hawks doubled with two outs and scored on an error which would have been the third out.  Another error would prolong the inning and Brooks capped the frame with a two-run double.

A two-run homer by Kayden Krause in the third helped the Crusaders close the gap to 5-4, but Catawba sent 10 men to the plate in the third and 11 in the fourth, plating five runs in each frame to stretch the lead to 15-4.  Kronenfeld capped both innings with two-run doubles.

  Matt Farmakis (Sharpsburg, GA/Northgate HS) picked up his first career win as he came on in the third and struck out both men he faced.  Three senior hurlers saw action with John Tuttle (Kannapolis, NC/A.L. Brown HS) getting the start and Michael Trombino (Boca Raton, FL/Calvary Academy) and Ryan McClintock (Matthews, NC/Providence HS) seeing action in relief.

Other seniors playing their final home game were Ethan Satterfield (Madison, NC/McMichael HS), Julio Zubillaga (China Grove, NC/Carson HS), Cameron Beard (Conover, NC/Bunker Hill HS) and Mario Parisi (Shirley, NC/Longwood HS).  Satterfield scored a run, Zubillaga had a hit and scored three times, while Beard had two hits and scored twice.  Parisi, who has been out with a broken finger, got into the game as a pinch-runner.

Anthony Dimino and Weston Clarke both had two hits and three RBI for Belmont Abbey.  Ian Vazquez had two hits and scored three runs.

Catawba will be in action on Thursday at the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Tournament at McNair Field in Forest City, NC.  The top-seeded Indians will face Anderson in the opening game at noon.
