No. 10: Craig Brooks’ walk-off single to top Wingate 1-0 at SAC Tournament

Craig Brooks delivered a one-out bases-loaded single in the bottom of the 12th to lift Catawba past Wingate 1-0 in an elimination game at the South Atlantic Conference Baseball Tournament.  The win sent the Catawba Indians to the final championship game on Sunday where Catawba would top Wingate once again to claim the tournament title.

The game would be a pitchers’ duel that saw Wingate collected just six hits and Catawba nine.  Freshman Matt Farmakis got the start for the Indians and twirled six shutout frames.  He stranded a pair of runners in both the second and fifth innings.  He was lifted in the seventh after surrendering a leadoff single, but Sean Grant turned a key doubleplay on a sacrifice attempt to help get the Indians out of the inning.

While Catawba was keeping Wingate silent, Bulldog starter Stephen Vaughn was mowing down Indians.  The biggest threat for Catawba in the early innings was the fourth when Paul Kronenfeld singled and Keaton Hawks doubled with one out.  Vaughn worked out of the pickle and went on to sit down 15 of the next 16 Indians, striking out a dozen over his nine innings.

Michael Trombino followed Grant on the mound for Catawba and retired the first eight batters he faced until issuing a pair of two-out walks in the 10th.  Ryan McClintock got a ground out to end the frame and kept the Bulldogs off the board the next two innings to set up the win in the 12th for Catawba.

With one out in the 12th, Ethan Satterfield reached on a sharp single to short and T.J. Wharton doubled down the leftfield line.  After Julio Zubillaga was intentionally walked, the Bulldogs went to the pen for reliever Tyler Brown.  Brooks sent a 0-1 pitch into right field to end the game and keep Catawba alive.  It would be his only hit of the tournament.

Due to the fact there were three teams still remaining in the tournament, Catawba went straight to the second game on Sunday.  Wingate topped Tusculum to get a rematch in the final, but Catawba jumped on top with an eight-run second inning and went on to grab a 10-0 victory.
