The Huntingdon baseball team got off to a strong start on Sunday. But after scoring seven runs in the first inning, the Hawks had to rally late in the game to beat Berry 15-12.
Trailing 11-10 with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, Tyler Blackwell doubled down the left-field line to bring in three runs and give the Hawks a 13-11 lead. The junior first baseman finished the day 4-for-4 with seven RBIs and two runs.
Neil Lawler (2-1) earned the win, pitching the final two innings of the game. Lawler struck out one, walked one, allowed one run and gave up two hits.
With the win, Huntingdon (20-9) completed a three-game sweep of Berry. The Hawks won 11-0 on Friday and 9-1 on Saturday. Early in Sunday’s game, it looked like Huntingdon would again put the Vikings away early.
Huntingdon sent 13 batters to the plate in the first inning and scored seven runs.
