Softball Runs Win Streak to Five With Sweep of USC Aiken


SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba swept a softball doubleheader with USC Aiken on Saturday afternoon at Whitley Field. Catawba would win game one 6-2 and won game two 5-4 on Jordan Dean's walk off double. Catawba stands at 8-4 on the season, while USC Aiken is 6-10.

Game 1:
Catawba would score the first set of runs in the second inning. Leah Huggins would single to center field to bring Monica Taylor in. Grace Holland would score the second run of the inning after a Kaylee Cook singled to center. The Lady Indians would put another four runs on the scoreboard in the third inning. Taylor Martin would score on an error then Grace Holland hit a homerun bringing in three runs. That gave the Lady Indians a 6-0 lead after three innings.

USC Aiken would score their two runs in the fifth inning. With bases loaded, Lilly Shoaf would walk for USC Aiken's first run. Sydney Murphy scored the second run after a two-out error. Brooke Walser got the Lady Indians out of the fifth, stranding two runner, then kept the Pacers off the board the final two frames. 

Madison Hunter improved to 4-0 with the win for Catawba. She gave up one run off three hits with four strikeouts over her four and a third innings. Hannah Price would take the loss for USC Aiken. Price had one strikeout over her two and two-thirds innings as she gave up six runs, two earned, off seven hits.

Game 2:
USC Aiken took the lead in game two with a run in the second inning. Chandler Terrapin would score from a single to right field hit by Sarah Sams. The Lady Indians would rally and put up two runs to take the lead in the third. Carlee Brawley would triple home Leah Huggins to tie the game and Allie Baker followed with a single to put Catawba on top.

Aiken pulled even in the sixth as Katelyn Powell walked with the bases loaded allowing Terrapin to score. Catawba answered right back, taking a 4-2 lead on a two-run homer by Delane Smith.

A clutch two-out, two-run double by Terrapin in the top of the seventh tied the game at 4-4. That set the stage for Dean. Brawley and Baker singled to open the Catawba seventh. After a sacrifice, Dean doubled off the fence in center to score the game-winner.

Brooke Walser evened her record at 3-3 with the game two win. She threw six and a third innings and allowed two earned runs off six hits. Dorgan took the loss for the Pacers. She struck out four in the complete game.
