After postponing their first conference game against Greenville College due to frigid temperatures, the MacMurray College baseball team topped the Panthers at Timm field 3-0 on Friday, March 22nd.
On the mound, freshman AJ Webb from Woodlawn ,IL threw a complete game shutout against the Panthers, securing his second victory of the season. Webb allowed just two hits in nine innings of work and tallied eight strikeouts.
The Highlanders were neck and neck against the Panthers until freshman Brock Hill roped a home run to right field putting the Highlanders up 1-0 in the sixth inning. Mac added a cushion in the bottom of the eighth inning with offensive production from Hill again as well as a triple by the senior Nathan Loy.
Mac improves to 1-0 in SLIAC play leading into Saturday’s games against Webster University.
