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.
