Late Rally Not Enough as Baseball Falls to #16 Lynn

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- In a battle of preseason top 20 baseball teams, Lynn (#20) came out on top with a 6-4 victory over visiting Catawba (#2) on Saturday afternoon at the Lynn Baseball Field.  The Fighting Knights level their early record at 1-1, while the Catawba Indians fall to 0-2.

Alex Turner broke a scoreless tie with a two-run homer for Lynn in the third.  The Fighting Knights doubled the lead in the sixth, producing a pair of runs with two outs.  A single by Frank Grandinette was followed by a walk and a hit batter to chase Catawba starter Shaefer Shepard (Boca Raton, Fla./Boca Raton/Francis Marion).  Avery Bowles (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson) hit Eric Schindler, the first man he faced, then Miguel Ceballos reached on a single to third to make it 4-0.

Catawba got off the deck in the seventh.  Zach Almond (Richfield, N.C./N. Stanly/UNCG) connected on a two-run homer to cut the deficit in the half.  In the eighth, a two-out RBI single from Kyle Smith (Greensboro, N.C./Grimsley) brought the Indians within a run.  Lynn answered in bottom half of the inning as Kyle Schindler delivered a two-out, two-run double in another inning that started after the first two batters were retired.

Chance Bowden (Salisbury, N.C./Salisbury) pulled one run back in the ninth as he singled home Dylan Richardson (Randleman, N.C./Randleman/Appalachian St.), who had doubled with two outs.  Payton Smith, who tossed the final two and a third innings, got the final out to grab the save.

Shepard allowed just three hits and fanned seven over hits five and two-thirds innings, but took the loss.  Grandinette won it for Lynn as he went six and two-thirds innings and gave up two runs on four hits.

Richardson and Bowden each had two hits for Catawba.  Ceballos and John Borup each picked up two hits for Lynn.

Catawba finishes up its first foray to Florida this season with a battle against 16th-ranked Nova Southeastern tomorrow at 1 pm.
