Cats win game one at UNCG

A grand slam by Tyler White in the fifth inning of a 1-1 tied game, sent the Catamounts to a 5-1 lead and helped the Cats on their way to a 7-3 victory at the UNCG Baseball Stadium.  The Cats have now won nine-straight SoCon games.

UNCG scored first in the bottom of the second as Eric Kalbfleisch led off with a triple to center field. A RBI ground-out by UNCG's TJ Spina made the score 1-0 after two complete innings, but the Cats responded in the fourth with a one-out home run by Jacob Hoyle.

The big blow by Western happened in the fifth with one out and Luke Gragg on second, a walk by Cody Jones and a single by Arron Attaway loaded the bases. After Julian Ridings struck out White came to the plate and drove a ball just over the glove of Eric Kalbfleisch and out of the park for the grand slam.

Jeremy Null pitched 7 and one third inning and was credited with the win, while Preson Hatcher pitched one and one third and is credited with the save.

A double header is on tap for Saturday.
