Baseball holds off Aiken behind Davis' five RBI day

AIKEN, SC Catawba sophomore Jimbo Davis (Salisbury, NC) capped a stellar month with a three-hit, five-RBI performance as the Indians defeated host USC-Aiken 10-9 in baseball action at Roberto Hernandez Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Catawba improves to 11-8 and have won five of its last six outings. The Pacers fall to 5-9. Davis finishes the month of February with 33 RBI in 13 games, halfway to the school record of 66. He also posted a gaudy .517 average with runners on base. Catawba would take a 7-0 lead after three and half innings, but needed a three-run eighth to grab the win. Thomas Giles (Lynchburg, VA) put the Indians on top in the second with an infield single then Davis delivered a two-run double in a four-run third for a 5-0 lead. Davis was back at it again in the fourth with a two-run single and the 7-0 lead. Aiken began to chip away at the deficit, scoring single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings. The Pacers would tie the game in the seventh with a four spot. Tony Hanks (Lexington, SC) had a two-run single with two outs and the tying run scored on a wild pitch. The Indians struck in the eighth on back-to-back two-out homers by Spence Southard (Greensboro, NC) and Davis. Nick Lefko (Faith, NC) had a RBI double to cap the frame. Aiken would not die and scored twice in their eighth, but Brian Hatley (Salisbury, NC) got Hanks to foul out with the bases loaded to end the inning. The senior pitched a perfect ninth to earn the save. Southard also enjoyed a three-hit effort for Catawba, while Lefko had a pair of hits. Ashley Farr (W. Columbia, SC) had three hits for the Pacers, while Bradley Key (Evans, GA) had three RBI. Only two of the runs against Tribe pitching were earned in the contest. #####
