The Wolves plated three runs in the top of the sixth to cut into Catawba’s lead. The Indians added one more run in the bottom half of the inning to make the score 8-4.

Hunter Shepherd earned the win in game two, pitching 5.1 innings. Shepherd allowed no runs on two hits and struck out four. Bowden led the Indians offensively with four hits and two RBIs. Jackson Raper added two hits with three RBIs.

Catawba scored first in game two in the bottom of the opening inning. The Wolves responded with two runs to take their first lead of the day. Raper homered to center field to tie the game in the bottom of the second.
