The Tribe added runs in the fifth and sixth. Matt Smith (Browns Summit, NC) doubled down the right field line, bringing in Spence Southard (Greensboro, NC), who also doubled to lead off the fifth. Mark Smith scored in the sixth when Scott Searles (Boston, MA) slapped a two-bagger down the right-field line. Thomas Giles (Lynchburg, VA) gave Catawba two more insurance runs as he crushed a two-run shot to center field for the Indians’ final runs of the afternoon.
