RESULTS VS. CATAWBA (2009-02-17 14:30:00)

Misenheimer, NC -- On Tuesday afternoon Pfeiffer baseball defeated arch rival Catawba for the first time since 2006. The Falcons used excellence on the mount to win the pitchers’ duel 3-0. Pfeiffer improves to 9-3 overall on the season, while Catawba drops to 3-4.
Catawba threatened in the first inning when Craige Lyerly (Salisbury, NC) led off the inning by reaching on an error and then stealing second. He advanced to third on a groundout, but was stranded while Pfeiffer’s Nick Fogleman (Waxhaw, NC) (3-0) struck out Ryan Query (Kannapolis, NC) and Brett Hatley (Salisbury, NC) grounded out to second.
The Pfeiffer bats were held at bay by Indian starter Tim Holmes (Bay Village, OH). In the second, Will Davis (New London, NC) led off with a walk and Jesse Dunn (Easley, SC) was hit by a pitch, but the Falcons continued to be foiled by Holmes, who stranded both runners where they were.
In the top of the sixth, the Indians again threatened when Lyerly reached on a one-out walk, then stole second and third on consecutive pitches. Fogleman again barred down and struck out two of the next three batters to get out of the inning.
In the bottom of the sixth, the Falcons finally broke through. With two-outs Zach Pou (Stanley, NC) ended Holmes’ no-hitter. Davis then ended the scoring drought with a two-run homerun that cleared the left field fence. Dunn followed with a double and Catawba went to their bullpen and brought in Will Huneycutt (Locust, NC). Huneycutt gave up a RBI single to Myles Pearl (High Point, NC) that scored pinch-runner Julian Medina (Glen Cove, NY). Pfeiffer looked to add another run in the seventh when Josh Strickland (Liberty, NC) hit a one-out double, but the threat ended there.
Fogleman picked up the win for the Falcons, going eight innings and scattering three hits while striking out 12. Andy Oliver (Cornelius, NC) came in for the save and struck out 3 of 4 batters he faced.
At the plate, Pfeiffer was led by Davis ( 1-3 with a homerun and two RBIs). Pou, Dunn Pearl, and Mike Green (Brandon, FL) added a hit a piece for Pfeiffer.
Holmes took the loss for the Indians, going 5 2/3 innings and giving up only three hits, but all three runs were charged to him.
The Catawba offense was led by Zeb Link (Woodleaf, NC), who went 2-4. Josh Hohn (Greensboro, NC) and Kevin McMillian (Salisbury, NC) each added a hit.
The Pfeiffer game scheduled for Wednesday, February 18 versus Francis Marion University has been moved to Thursday, February 19 due to looming inclement weather.
