20_BB_Ketchie_WVST

Salisbury, NC -- The Catawba baseball team (4-2) swept a double-header Sunday afternoon against West Virginia State (0-3) by the scores of 15-9 and 10-1. The two wins today completed a three game sweep of the series after yesterday's 10-0 victory.

Game One:

It was a slugfest in the first game of the day as the teams combined for 24 runs. The Indians got the scoring started in the 2nd inning when Dylan Wilkinson knocked in 2 runs with a single. The 3rd inning saw Catawba score two more runs on a Hunter Shepherd two run homer, which was his third of the weekend.

The Indians led 5-0 when West Virginia State came up with a 3 run inning in the 5th to cut the lead to just two. In the bottom of the inning, however, Catawba would respond with 6 runs which included a Joe Butts 3 RBI triple. Four more runs would cross the plate in the 6th and the route was on.

West Virginia State wouldn't go quiet though as they scored 6 runs in the final two innings. Matthew Kline had a huge game going 2-5 with a grand slam and 6 RBI's. Andrew Stone also had a 2 hit game.

Lefty Bryan Ketchie was on the bump for Catawba. Ketchie went 5.0 innings giving up 5 hits, 3 runs, and striking out 4. DJ Laxton and Bryson Linkous finished the game out of the bullpen.

Zack Miller came through once again with a big performance, collecting 3 hits, scoring 4 runs, and hitting his 2nd homerun of the year.

Game Two:

Game two was more of the same offensively as the Indians would put up 10 more runs. The big inning came in the 3rd when Catawba scored 7 runs to make it 9-0. The inning was highlighted by a Like Spiva 2 RBI double followed by a Jeremy Simpson RBI single. Spiva would finish the game 2-3 with 2 runs scored and 3 RBI.

Hunter Shepherd got the start for the Indians on the mound, as he went 4.0 innings giving up just 2 hits and striking out 6. Tyrese Hearst went 1.1 innings and Robbie Cowie finished the final 1.2 innings to seal the win.

Henderson Lentz set the tone out of the leadoff spot for Catawba, going 3-4 with 2 runs scored. Dylan Wilkinson also had 2 hits and a run scored.

The team will be back at Newman Park Tuesday afternoon when they host Belmont Abbey at 2 pm.
