Area Sports Briefs: Catawba softball sweeps

From staff reports
Catawba’s softball team swept Coker on Wednesday in Hartsville, S.C.
Catawba won 2-0 and 2-1. The Indians have won nine straight games.
Carley Tysinger (17-4) won both games for Catawba and struck out 25 batters.
Tysinger tied Lindsay Ettinger’s school mark with 87 career victories.
Caroline Turner had an RBI in each win.
Gina Gerone had a double and a triple in the first game. Turner and Taylor Adams had two hits.
Kristen Stinnard and Katherine Shumaker had two hits each in the second game.
Catawba faces its longest trip of the season on Saturday, as the Indians travel to Lincoln Memorial for a 1 p.m. doubleheader.

Parnell re-signed
Reliever Bobby Parnell (East Rowan) was cut by the Detroit Tigers earlier this week, but he was re-signed by the Tigers on Wednesday.
The Tigers faced a Tuesday deadline with Parnell. He would have received a $100,000 roster bonus if he’d been named to the opening day roster.
The Tigers chose to release him rather than pay him, but they quickly re-signed him.
Parnell, 31, has agreed to start the season with the Toledo Mud Hens, Detroit’s Triple-A team. He’ll attempt to rebuild arm strength and regain velocity. Parnell had Tommy John surgery in 2014.
Parnell had a rough spring, but he was clocked at 96 mph in his last outing.
If he stays healthy, he’ll likely get a chance with Detroit this season.
