Softball splits with Alderson-Broaddus

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College and visiting Alderson-Broaddus split a doubleheader in softball action on Tuesday afternoon at Whitley Field. Alderson-Broaddus won the opener 6-5 in 11 innings, while Catawba took game two 5-1 in a game shortened to five innings due to darkness. Catawba is now 10-10 on the year. Catawba rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the opener to grab a 5-3 lead after six innings. Stacey Handy (Advance, NC), who had doubled home a run in the first, drove home a run in the fifth on a sacrifice fly for the 5-3 lead. Val McDowell (Crofton, MD) had given the ladies a 4-3 lead on a RBI groundout before Handy’s fly. The Battlers would tie the score in the seventh on a wild pitch and a two-out, RBI single by Casey Kuhn. Kes Lowe drove home the winning run for A-B in the 11th. Whitney Cayton earned the win for the Battlers, tossing all 11 innings and allowing just one earned run off eight hits. Catawba would score three times to take command of the second game in the opening inning. Rachel McCollum (Yadkinville, NC) had a RBI single, while Liz Corbett (Severn, MD) plated a run on a groundout. A single by Katie Roush in the third cut the Catawba lead to 3-1, but Catawba got a RBI single by Jessica Rivera (Key West, FL) in the fourth and another by Ashlee Rhoades (China Grove, NC) in the fifth just before the game was halted. Handy and McCollum each had three hits in the doubleheader for Catawba, with Handy having two RBI. Katie Phelps (Prince Frederick, MD) earned the win on the mound for Catawba in game two. She allowed one run on seven hits over her five innings with four strikeouts. #####
