Hawks Knock Off Maryville in Series Finale behind Holloway’s Complete Game

MARYVILLE, Tenn.—Behind the senior arm of Scott Holloway, the Huntingdon baseball team avoided a series sweep with an 8-3 victory over Maryville College in the final game of the Great South Athletic Conference on Saturday at Scotland Yard.

With the win, the Hawks improved to 23-9 on the season, but just 2-4 in league games. The Scots fell to 16-9 overall and 3-3 in GSAC play.

After allowing 28 hits and issuing 18 walks in the first two games of the series, Huntingdon handed the ball to Holloway (5-1), who responded with his team-best third complete game of the season. Holloway scattered nine hits and allowed only one earned run, while striking out three and walking four in 9.0 innings of work.

Freshman Austin White finished the contest with a team-high three hits, while adding his fifth stolen base of the year. Senior Chad Green delivered the big hit of the game for Huntingdon, a three-run single in a five-run eighth inning to give the Hawks the lead for good. Seniors Chris Knight, Kyle Eller and Shawn Bezwiechin, as well as junior Drew Harrell each added one RBI. Senior Josh Bennefield scored a pair of runs.

Wes Dobson (1-2) suffered the loss for the Scots, allowing two runs on two hits in 2 2/3 innings of relief.

Jamey Davis led Maryville at the plate, finishing 3-for-4, while Junior Valentine added a hit and two stolen bases.

Huntingdon will return to action on April 6, when it travels to Jackson, Miss., to take on Millsaps at 4 p.m.
