ANDERSON, S.C. -- Catawba and host Anderson split a South Atlantic Conference baseball doubleheader on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.  The Catawba Indians claimed the opener 7-6, while the Trojan took an 11-9 win in game two.  The Catawba Indians stand at 13-9 overall and 5-4 in the SAC.  The Trojans move to 8-15 and 3-6.

Each team held off late charges by their opponent to win.  Catawba, down 2-0 early in game one, saw Anderson fight back from a 7-2 deficit.  The Trojans got two in the eighth and two in the ninth before Bryan Blanton (Albemarle, N.C./Albemarle) got a fly out with the tying run at third to end the contest. 

Anderson took a 10-2 lead in the nightcap, but Catawba put together a furious rally that got the Indians within 10-9 after a three-run double by Dylan Richardson (Randleman, N.C./Randleman/Appalachian St.) in the fifth.  The Indians were thwarted late by ground ball double plays in the sixth and seventh.

Jake Kimble (Concord, N.C./Mt. Pleasant/Liberty) had three hits in each game of the doubleheader for Catawba and scored five runs.  Will Albertson (Sophia, N.C./Randleman/Campbell) and two hits in each game, while Richardson picked up three hits and four RBI in game two.

In the opener, Luke Setzer (Salisbury, N.C./E. Rowan) had RBI singles in the third and fifth innings to get Catawba even after an early 2-0 deficit.  The Indians took the lead in the sixth on back-to-back RBI doubles by Chance Bowden (Salisbury, N.C./Salisbury) and Kimble.

Anderson struck for two runs with two outs in the eighth then put together another two out rally in the ninth.  Michael Rochester singled home a run and a second run scored on an error that put the tying run on third.  Blanton got a fly out from Zach McIlroy to pick up his second save.

A three-run homer by Steven Cooper got Anderson off to a quick lead in game two.  McIlroy had a two-run single in the second and LJ Newman a two-run homer in the third to make it 10-2.

Catawba put two home in the fourth on singles from Albertson and Richardson then mounted the five-run fifth that got the Indians within a run.  With two outs, Albertson singled home a run and Setzer walked to load the bases.  Richardson cleared them with a three-run double.

Anderson pulled a run back in the bottom of the fifth to go up 11-9.  After a leadoff walk in the sixth, Catawba hit into its first double play and Kimble was later stranded at third.  In the seventh Catawba had two walks around a fielder's choice to get the tying run on base.  The game ended on a double play off the bat of Richardson.

Russ Weiker (Albemarle, S. Stanly/Liberty) picked up the win in the opener for Catawba and improved to 5-2.  He allowed four runs on seven hits with four strikeouts.  Avery Bowles (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson) gave the Indians a chance in the nightcap with three innings of work, allowing a run off no hits.  He walked one, hit one and fanned four.

Catawba travels to UNC Pembroke on Wednesday for a 3 pm non-conference match-up with the Braves.
