17_BB_SimpsonJeremyNG

NEWBERRY, S.C. -- Catawba saw its run of seven straight conference titles end as host Newberry took all three games of the weekend series, sweeping Saturday’s doubleheader 9-5 and 5-2 at the Smith Road Complex. The Wolves, ranked 15th, improve to 36-10 and 19-2, while the third-ranked Catawba Indians fall to 34-12 and 17-7.

Newberry scored six runs over the first three innings of the opener to go up 6-0. The Wolves had just two hits in the opening inning as it scored three times. Newberry benefited from a Catawba error and two hit batters. The Indians ended the game with five errors.

Hunter Shepherd got Catawba on the board with a home run in the fourth and Robbie Cowie singled home a run in the sixth to make it 6-2. The Wolves got those runs back with a pair in the bottom of the sixth.

Catawba made one more push in the eighth. Shepherd scored on a wild pitch and Cameron Morrison singled home a run to cut the deficit to 9-5. The Indians loaded the bases with one out, but a doubleplay grounder ended the threat.

Cowie had two of Catawba’s seven hits. Newberry rapped out 12 hits, three by Luke Orr. Peyton Springler had two hits and drove in two. Tomas Sorcia (6-0) went six innings for the win. He gave up a pair of runs on three this with seven strikeouts.

It was a four-run second the paved the way for the game two win. After a hit batter, the Wolves next six batters singled. Zane Tarrance drove in two with his single. That was enough support for Josh Bookbinder (8-1) who tossed the complete game. He allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out six.

Jeremy Simpson and Henderson Lentz each had two hits for Catawba. Jackson Raper had a sacrifice fly in the third then doubled and scored on a hit by Shepherd in the sixth.

Catawba heads to Belmont Abbey on Tuesday at 6 p.m. then closes at home against the Crusaders on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
