Baseball rolls to 17-0 shutout over Barber-Scotia

SALISBURY, NC – Sophomore Jimbo Davis (Salisbury, NC) went 2-for-3 with two doubles, while fellow sophomore Nick Lefko (Faith, NC) went 2-for-2, in just the eighth inning, with two homeruns, tying a school-record that Mark Smith (Browns Summitt, NC) tied yesterday, with two HR’s in the same inning. Davis and Lefko both had five RBI on the day, in a 17-0 shutout of visiting Barber-Scotia on Wednesday afternoon at Newman Park. Catawba, now on a three-game win streak, improves to 13-8 on the season. Catawba wouldn’t waste anytime putting a six-spot on the board in the first. Matt Baker (Charlotte, NC) doubled in Mark Smith for a 1-0 lead. A Spence Southard (Greensboro, NC) walk would load the bases for one of Davis’ doubles to clear the bases. Aaron Rimer (Salisbury, NC) then followed with a two-run shot to close the home half of the first. Taking a 9-0 lead into the eighth, the Tribe would put up eight runs in the frame. Lefko led off the inning with a solo blast. Several walks and hit batters later, Sam Bowers (Polkton, NC) would pick up an RBI as would David Hughes (Apex, NC) in between a Brian Hatley (Salisbury, NC) sacrifice fly. Lefko would then pick up his second HR of the year, second in the inning, sending a grand-slam to deep center field. Paul Link (Cleveland, NC) earned his second win on the year, tossing six-innings scattering just one hit and fanning eight. Nick Mayle (Landis, NC) and Brian Benton (Wallace, NC) both pitched a perfect inning in relief. Zach Snyder (Lexington, NC) closed the game to combine on the shutout. Juan Santana had two of the three Saber hits, including a double, in the loss. Darren Bowleg, in relief, tossed seven innings, allowing three runs, two earned, while striking out ten. #####
