LAST MEETING WITH CATAWBA
Last season the team avoided a series sweep as they split the twin bill with the Catawba College Indians, dropping the first game 6-4 and winning the second 1-0.

Cole Cromer was the shining star for Newberry on the afternoon as he tossed his second complete game win of the season in a four hit shutout. The senior right-hander struck out seven without surrendering a walk in the outing.

Brandan Sheridan led the way for Newberry on the offensive side as he was a team leading 3-for-7 in the two games combined. The senior picked up a double, a run batted in and also scored a run for the Wolves.

JoJo Bradley (Spartanburg, S.C.) was the only other player for Newberry to tally multiple hits in the two games as he was 2-for-7 with a double and a RBI.


SCOUTING CATAWBA

USA Baseball unveiled its 50-player preseason Golden Spikes Award watch list and Catawba's Will Albertson was among the 50 players named. Albertson is one of only eight non-NCAA Division I players on the list. The preseason watch list features 50 of the nation’s top amateur players, from high school and college baseball.

The team fell to Shippensburg University in their series finale 8-5, on Sunday afternoon. Kyle Smith hit a pair of home runs for Catawba. Luke Setzer had a triple and a double, while Chance Bowden also had two hits.

A single by Bowden and double by Emmitt Carden led to an RBI ground out by Jake Kimble to make it 6-2 in the fifth.  Smith, who had hit a solo home run in the second, connected on a two-run homer in the sixth to bring Catawba within 6-4. The Indians inched closer in their seventh as Dylan Richardson singled home a run with two outs, but Catawba stranded two and only got one more base runner the rest of the way.

UP NEXT
Newberry is back at home on Tuesday, March 1 when they host Augusta for a single game starting at 6 p.m.
