Catawba earns series sweep with two wins over Newberry on Saturday
Saturday, March 12, 2011

NEWBERRY, S.C. - The Newberry College Wolves dropped the first game of their Saturday doubleheader with South Atlantic Conference foe Catawba College, 7-4, and also lost the second game, 13-2, to give Catawba the series sweep.

Newberry falls to 12-12 overall and 6-6 in SAC play while Catawba solidifies its spot at the top of the league with a 19-5 overall record and 11-1 SAC record.

Newberry hosts Coker at 6 p.m. Tuesday in its next action before traveling to Lander for a 6 p.m. game Wednesday. The Lander game was originally scheduled as a home game for Newberry, but was moved to Greenwood after the weather-related schedule swaps in the first week of the season.

Game One: Catawba 7, Newberry 4
The Wolves jumped out to an early lead in the first inning, but the Catawba Indians chipped away at the lead and earned the win with three runs in the seventh inning.

An RBI double by Jovan Rohena (Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico) was followed up by a two-run homerun to left-center by Chris Love (Columbia, S.C.) to give Newberry a 3-0 lead. Zach Morgan (Simpsonville, S.C.) would extend the lead with an RBI single later in the inning to give Newberry an early 4-0 advantage.

Catawba cut away at the lead with an RBI single from Keaton Hawks in the second, a solo homer to left field from Ryan Bostian in the third and an RBI fielder's choice by Brett Underwood in the third. Greg Lawson tied the game at 4-all in the sixth inning with an RBI infield single.

The Catawba Indians took the lead for good in the top of the seventh after the first two batters reached on infield singles. Three straight run-scoring singles by Austin Moyer, Hawks and Underwood pushed the lead out to 7-4.

After Newberry's big first inning, Catawba starter JJ Jankowski (4-0) calmed down and kept Newberry off of the board for the remainder of his outing. He went 8.0 innings, striking out 10 and scattering six hits while walking only one. Newberry starter Cole Robison (Greer, S.C.; 3-3) took the loss in 6.1 innings of work, allowing six runs - five earned - on 10 hits.

The Catawba Indians made it 6-1 in the second with a two-run sungle by Cameron White and an RBI single from Dula, all with two outs.

After a scoreless fourth, Dula's two-run homerun and an RBI fielder's choice from Brett Holmgren in the fifth made it 12-1 and Catawba capped its scoring with a pinch hit RBI single by Kevin Parrish in the sixth.
