21_BB_CowieRobbieCOK

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba finished off a four-game sweep of visiting Coker, taking both ends of Saturday afternoon’s South Atlantic Conference baseball doubleheader at Newman Park. Trenton Walsh had the big hit in a 2-1 win in the opener, while Bryan Ketchie was nearly flawless in a 12-2 victory in game two. The Catawba Indians move to 11-4 overall and 9-3 in the SAC, while the Cobras fall to 3-9 and 3-5.

Hunter Shepherd had allowed just one run on four hits over six inning, but the Indians trailed Coker 1-0. After a strikeout to open the home sixth, Cameron Morrison walked and Dylan Wilkinson was hit by a pitch. That chased Cobra starter Brendan Millins, who gave up just three hits and fanned four.

Reliever Griffin Hollifield got a fly for out two. Walsh stepped in, battled back from an 0-2 count and delivered a two-run to right to plate Morrison and pinch-runner Jake Rowden to put Catawba on top 2-1. Robbie Cowie gave up a two-out double in the seventh, but struck out the final batter to earn his second save. Shepherd moved to 1-1 with the win.

Ketchie (2-0) sat down the first 12 men he faced and after Lee Poteat led off the Catawba first with a home run, the Indians led 1-0. Ketchie would get a 13th-out before Brian Castillo doubled to give Coker its first base-runner. A single by Corey Listing and a double by Kody Hanna put the Cobras up 2-1.

Catawba took advantage a pair of Coker errors to score three times in the bottom of the fifth to retake the lead at 4-2. Ketchie then sat down the final six Cobras to finish off a complete game. The Indians ended the game with a six-run seventh.

After just four hits in the opener, Catawba rapped out 13 hits in the game two win. Poteat, who scored three run, Shepherd, Luke Spiva and Zack Miller each had two hits. Poteat, Shepherd, Spiva and Joe Butts drove in two runs.

Ketchie allowed four hits, all in the fifth inning, walked none and fanned five.

Catawba will host Lincoln Memorial in a non-conference game at Newman Park on Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m.
