Softball Splits Games On Monday At Captain D's Classic
DAHLONEGA, Ga. -- Catawba split a pair of softball games on Monday at the Captain D's Classic at Hill Stadium on the campus of North Georgia University. The Catawba Indians took a 7-5 win over McKendree before falling to the host Nighthawks 3-1. Catawba is now 8-6 on the season.
The Lady Indians rallied late to top McKendree (4-5). Catawba trailed 5-3 going to the bottom of the sixth, but got off the deck and scored four times. With two outs, Holli Chandler (New London, N.C./N. Stanly HS) singled home a run and Caroline Turner (Kenly, N.C./N. Johnston HS) followed with a RBI single to tie the game.
Turner put Catawba on top as she benefited from a pair of errors to score the go-ahead run. As Turner swiped second the throw was wild allowing her to go to third. An overthrow at third sent her home for a 6-5 lead. Another error in the inning gave the Lady Indians an insurance run.
McKendree jumped out to a 5-0 lead after two innings. The first four Bearcat batters reached to start the game as McKendree plated three runs in the first. A walk, two singles and an error with one out in the second help push the advantage to five runs.
Carley Tysinger (Lexington, N.C./C. Davidson HS) started the Catawba rally, hitting a two-out home run in the third to get the Lady Indians on the scoreboard. Gina Gerone (Brooklyn, N.Y./Madison HS) tacked on two more on her home run in the fourth to make it 5-3.
Kristen Stinnard (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill HS) and Natalie Naturile (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson HS) had two-hit games for Catawba. Tysinger, who relieved Turner in the first inning, grabbed the win to improve to 6-2. She allowed two runs (one earned) off four hits with 11 strikeouts over seven innings.
North Georgia (18-4) managed just five hits off Tysinger, but was able to produce the win. A leadoff double from Meagan May in the second was cashed in on a single from Victoria Prince. Prince came around to score on a sacrifice fly from Meredith Heyer.
Catawba cut the deficit in half in the fourth. Tysinger doubled with one out and came home on a sacrifice fly from Taylor Adams (Smithfield, N.C./N. Johnston HS). May got that run back in the Nighthawk fifth with a RBI double with two outs.
The Lady Indians collected just four hits off Courtney Poole (12-1), who earned the win for North Georgia. Poole walked one and struck out four. Tysinger (6-3) took the loss and fanned two. She was named to the all-tournament team.
Catawba is set to start league play on Saturday as it travels to Mars Hill for a 1 pm doubleheader.
