Davis racks up six more RBI in Baseball split with LMU

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College and Lincoln Memorial battled to a split in a baseball doubleheader on Saturday afternoon at Newman Park. LMU won the opener 6-4, while the Indians earned the split with an 8-0 decision in the second game. Catawba is now 7-7 on the season, while the Railsplitters are 2-8. A two-out, two-run double by Nick Lefko (Faith, NC) helped Catawba grab a 4-0 lead after an inning of the opener. Lincoln Memorial tied the game in the sixth as Was Strader (Anaheim, CA) capped a three-run inning with a RBI single. The Railsplitters scored twice in the seventh to take the decision. Taylor Gandy (Yorktown, VA) had a run-scoring single and Johnson Whitehead (Lexington, KY) had a sacrifice fly. Catawba had runners at first and third with one-out in the fifth, but failed to have another baserunner the rest of the way. Mark Parsons (London, KY) settled down after a shaky first inning and tossed a complete game. He allowed seven hits with three walks and four strikeouts to improve to 1-2. Gandy had three hits for LMU, while Whitehead had a pair of safeties. Matt Baker (Charlotte, NC) and Jimbo Davis (Salisbury, NC) each had two hits for Catawba. Zach Snyder (Lexington, NC) tossed six shutout innings to earn Catawba the split and improve his record to 2-1. He surrendered just two hits and had eight strikeouts and just two walks. Davis hit a pair of home runs, including a grand slam in the first to give the Tribe a 4-0 lead. Mark Smith (Browns Summitt, NC) went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI for Catawba, while Davis had his five RBI on two dingers. Davis increased his season RBI total to 22 in eight games. Strader had two of the three LMU hits. #####
