HOLLY SPRINGS, NC, July 2 – With rainy clouds looming for all of the game, the HiToms improved their road record to 5-10 after a 2-0 win over the Holly Springs Salamanders.
The Tommies struck first when Alec Paradowski (Wofford) came home from a Ryan Hedrick (Presbyterian) single into left field for Hedrick’s fifth RBI of the season.
In the top of the ninth, to add some insurance, Nick Lopez (Creighton) blasted a line drive straight to center that plated Chandler Hall (Louisianan Tech) on a 3-2 count.
Austin Gardner (University of Texas at Arlington) took the win after throwing a complete game shutout allowing no runs off three hits striking out six.
