Wharton Collects Four Hits In Baseball's 20-2 Win Over Barton

15_BSB_WeikerRuss

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba scored 15 runs over the first three innings and went on for a 20-2 win over visiting Barton in baseball action on Tuesday night at Newman Park.  The Catawba Indians, ranked 12th by Collegiate Baseball and third by the NCBWA, improve to 31-7.  The Bulldogs fall to 14-23.

Catawba sent a dozen men to the plate and scored eight runs in the first inning which was aided when the Indians' second batter, Kyle Smith (Greensboro, N.C./Grimsley HS), reached on a wild pitch after striking out.  Will Albertson (Sophia, N.C./Randleman HS/Campbell) and T.J. Wharton (Lutz, Fla./Bishop McLaughlin HS/Guilford Tech) singled home runs to get things started and Chance Bowden (Salisbury, N.C./Salisbury HS) doubled home two before Smith capped the inning with a three-run triple.

That was plenty of support for Russ Weiker (Albemarle, N.C./S. Stanly HS/Liberty), who went six innings to improve to 3-1.  The lefty got out of a first-inning jam after three of the first four Barton batters singled to load the bases.  Weiker got a pop up and ground out to end the inning.

After the first, Weiker cruised, retiring 15 of 16 batters in a stretch until there was one out in the sixth.  The only blemish was a solo home run by Nick McKinney.  McKinney also singled in the sixth and came around to score on a single from Jacob Willis.  Weiker would allow eight hits with no walks and five strikeouts.

The Indians added a pair of runs in the second and five more in the third which included a three-run homer by Craig Brooks (Monroe, N.C./Parkwood HS).  Wharton capped a 4-for-4 day with a RBI single in the fifth as Catawba built a 19-1 lead after five.

Each starter in the Catawba lineup had a hit except Dylan Richardson (Randleman, N.C./Randleman HS/Appalachian St.), who walked twice, was hit by a pitch and hit a sacrifice fly.  Albertson had two hits as did Smith, Bowden, Bryce Fowler (Greenwood, S.C./Greenwood HS/Presbyterian) and Luke Setzer (Salisbury, N.C./E. Rowan HS).

Catawba hosts a key regional contest with UNC Pembroke on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
