Baseball blasts Belmont Abbey at Williams ClassicSALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College pounded out 17 hits, including seven for extra bases en route to a 9-1 win over Belmont Abbey in the opening game of the seventh annual Dick Williams Classic on Friday afternoon. The win improves the host Indians to 5-4, while Belmont Abbey falls to 2-8. A sacrifice fly by Matt Smith (Browns Summitt, NC) in the opening inning put Catawba up for good. A solo home run by Matt Baker (Charlotte, NC) in the third inning, one of his four hits on the day, upped the lead to 2-0. The Indians broke the game open in the fourth on a three-run homer by Mark Smith (Browns Summitt, NC). The Crusaders lone run came in the sixth as Derek Brown (Mastic Beach, NY) doubled home Brett Davis (Hampton, GA). Thomas Wilson (Smithfield, NC) pitched seven strong innings to even his record to 1-1. The left-hander allowed just five hits with a pair of walks and seven strikeouts. Jeff Boyles (Pinnacle, NC) joined Baker with four hits for Catawba. His last three hits were doubles. Jimbo Davis (Salisbury, NC) went 3-for-5, while Mark Smith had two hits and four RBI. Davis and Brown each had two hits for the Crusaders. Due to the possibility of inclement weather on Sunday, the three-day classic will now conclude with four games on Saturday. The new schedule for Saturday has Tusculum and Belmont Abbey starting the day at 10 am, followed by Pfeiffer and Belmont Abbey at 1 pm. Catawba will face Tusculum at 4 pm and the host Indians finish the day against Pfeiffer at 7 pm. All games on Saturday will be seven innings. #####
