Baseball Tied With LMU After Nine, Game to Resume Sunday

KODAK, Tenn. -- Catawba and Lincoln Memorial will have to continue its marathon contest of the Pilot/Flying J South Atlantic Conference Baseball Tournament on Sunday.  Heavy rains began to fall as LMU rallied for three ninth-inning runs and with the game tied 8-8, play was halted after the teams had battled for four hours.  The teams are currently scheduled to resume play at 9 am on Sunday morning. 

Catawba jumped out to an 8-2 lead after four innings.  Kyle Smith (Greensboro, N.C./Grimsley) drove in a pair of run in a three-run first and Will Albertson (Sophia, N.C./Randleman/Campbell) cranked a three-run homer in the fourth to build the lead.

The Railsplitters fought back late.  LMU would chase Catawba starter Sean Grant (Statesville, N.C./W. Iredell) in the seventh after a home run and a single.  Michael Elwell (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman), the last of five pitchers in the inning for the Indians, struck out the final batter with the bases loaded and the score trimmed to 8-4.

LMU added a run in the eighth before Bryan Blanton (Albemarle, N.C./Albemarle) stranded two to end the frame.  With the rains falling harder in the ninth, LMU began the rally with one out when Eric Kalman reached on an error.  Two singles and two walks cut the lead to 8-7 with the bases loaded.  Blanton got a strikeout, but a walk to Jean Rodriguez tied the game before a pop up sent the game to extra innings.
