Area sports briefs: Regional game suspended

From staff reports
Catawba’s baseball opener in the Southeast Regional was suspended on Thursday, with the fifth-seeded Indians leading No. 2 seed Tusculum 3-2 in the seventh inning.
Catawba had just batted in the seventh when heavy rain at Scarborough Field forced a delay. After a two-hour wait, the game was suspended.
The game will be completed today at 10 a.m., with the Lander-Mount Olive first-round game that couldn’t be played on Thursday to follow.
Catawba scored twice in the first inning before Tusculum ace Craig Goodman could settle in. Garrett Furr had a run-scoring double, while Julio Zubillaga (Carson) had a run-scoring groundout.
The Indians made it 3-0 in the third when Ryan Bostian (South Rowan) singled, stole second and scored on a hit by Furr.
Catawba starter Nick Lomascolo allowed a run in the third but avoided a big inning. The Pioneers pulled within 3-2 in the sixth.
Lomascolo was lifted after throwing 104 pitches in 51/3 innings. He allowed seven hits and four walks while striking out three.
Goodman pitched seven innings and allowed one earned run and nine hits, while fanning seven.
Furr is 3-for-4 for Catawba.
