Baseball: Cats win game one

Elon, NC - The Elon Phoenix had won 22 games this season when they had the lead after seven innings. That streak ended Saturday, as the Catamounts rallied back from a 5-3 deficit to knock off the Phoenix by a 6-5 score in game one of a three-game SoCon series at Latham Park. Trailing by two after the Phoenix scored four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Cats pulled within one in the sixth. In the eight inning, home run leader Adam Martin knocked his seventh home of the season over the left field fence. Later in the inning, Jacob Hoyle doubled, before scoring on a single up the middle by Dykota Spiess.
