CLEVELAND, Tenn. -- Catawba split a baseball doubleheader at Lee University on Saturday at Olympic Field.  The Host Flames took the opener 6-0, while the 21st-ranked Catawba Indians rebounded for a 2-1 win in game two.  Catawba moves to 2-1, while Lee is 1-1.

Tied 1-1 in the last inning of game two, Catawba broke a 1-1 tie on Nick Coble’s (Concord, N.C./Mt. Pleasant/Florence-Darlington) sacrifice fly.  Luke Setzer (Salisbury, N.C./E. Rowan) doubled to start the seventh and went to third on Kyle Smith’s (Greensboro, N.C./Grimsley) single.  Following a strikeout, Coble delivered the go-ahead RBI.  Bryan Blanton (Albemarle, N.C./Albemarle) struck out the side in the bottom half to lock up the win.

A RBI groundout by Peyton Meeker had given Lee the early lead after an inning.  Catawba tied it in the second on a bases-loaded walk by Smith. 

Hunter Shepherd (Salisbury, N.C./Homeschooled) did not allow an earned run over his four frames.  He gave up three hits with three walks and three strikeouts.  Bryan Ketchie (Woodleaf, N.C./W. Rowan) pitched into the sixth, giving up just one hit over an inning a two-thirds before giving way to Blanton, who fanned all four batters he faced and got the win.

Setzer had three of Catawba’s seven hits.  Kevin Acosta (Port Orange, Fla./Spruce Creek) was 2-for-2 and scored a run.  Jumpei Akanuma allowed a run over four innings in starting for Lee.  Kit Larson was tagged with the loss after allowed a run over his two innings.

Drew Johnson put Lee up 1-0 in the opener on his solo homer in the first.  Art Vidro and Joe Parete would go on to combine to shutout the Indians, allowing just four hits.

Miguel Pimentel’s two run single in the fourth upped the lead to 3-0 and he later singled home two more in the eighth as Lee went up 5-0.  He later scored on a passed ball to cap the scoring.  Geremy Walton had three hits for Lee.

Vidro went seven innings for the win.  He allowed three hits, walked one and fanned four.  Parete earned the save with two innings of relief.  He gave up one hit and struck out four.
