Southard's walk-off homer helps Baseball to split with PC

SALISBURY, NC – Presbyterian and host Catawba split a South Atlantic Conference baseball doubleheader on Saturday at Newman Park. Richard Barkley (Sumter, SC) tossed a seven-hit complete game as Presbyterian won the opener 8-1, while Spence Southard (Greensboro, NC) hit a walk-off home run as Catawba took the nightcap 3-2. Presbyterian is now 12-14 overall and 5-2 in the SAC, while the Indians are 18-12 and 5-3. The Blue Hose got back-to-back two-out home runs from Heath McCutcheon (Newberry, SC) and Kevin White (Spartanburg, SC) to grab a 2-0 lead after a half inning. Chad Hill (Bennett, NC) led off the Tribe first with a homer to cut the margin to 2-1, but Presbyterian pulled away late for the win. McCutcheon drove home a run in the third on a ground out and delivered a two-run single in the fifth for a 5-1 Blue Hose lead. Presbyterian took advantage of a pair of Tribe errors in the sixth to tack on three more runs. That was more than enough for Barkley, who walked two and struck out six in his complete game effort, allowing just the single run on seven hits. McCutcheon was 4-for-5 with four RBI, while Tombo Hite (Abbeville, SC) was 3-for-4. Scott Searles (Boston, MA) had a pair of hits for the Tribe. Catawba picked up a pair of unearned runs in the second inning of the nightcap to grab the lead. One run scored on a bases loaded walk to Southard, while the second run scored on an ensuing error. Presbyterian cut the margin in half in the third with an unearned run and tied the game in the fourth on Matt Warren’s (Lexington, SC) RBI ground out. Presbyterian would get a runner to third in both the fifth and seven innings, but failed to score. Catawba, who had left the bases loaded in the first and second, hit into double plays in the fifth and sixth before Southard led off the seventh with his game-winning homer. Matt Fairweather (Lenoir, NC) picked up the win for Catawba, scattering four hits and allowing just one earned run in the complete game effort. He walked one and struck out seven. #####
