MONTGOMERY, AL - The Knights baseball program entered this year's SSAC Tournament with the #1 seed and did not disappoint, winning their 9th straight game and their 4th in a row versus the Loyola Wolfpack.  Jake Hundley (SR/Newnan, GA) was the starter for the Knights picking up the win as he allowed just one unearned run in the first inning and got out of a couple of jams created by 4 errors.  Hundley picked up his 7th win of the season scattering 3 hits over 7 innings and striking out 4.

After falling behind 1-0 before they even came to bat, the Knights lit up the scoreboard in the first inning with a pair of two run homers.  First, Logan Smith (SR/Zebulon, GA) followed a single by Jesus Monserrat (SR/Warner Robins, GA) with a homer over the right-centerfield fence.  After Andy Mocahbee (SR/Calhoun, GA) reached on an E5, Will Golden (SR/Waycross, GA) blasted a ball over the left field fence for a 4-1 lead.  Smith picked up his 3rd RBI of the game with a single in the 4th then Andy Mocahbee had a sacrifice fly to put the Knights up 6-1 after 4 were complete.

The Knights added another run in the 5th after a pair of hit-by-pitch and a walk loaded the bases for Haydn Nechanicky (JR/Suwanee, GA) who walked to put the Knights up 7-1.  The final run scored in the 7th on Monserrat's single that drove in Mikal Flores (JR/MacClenny, FL).  Hundley came out of the game in the 8th and was replaced by Chris Cuthrell (FR/Cartersville, GA) who gave up 2 hits in 2 innings and allowed an unearned run.  

The Knights will now face the 4-seed University of Mobile Rams at 8pm on Thursday the 4th.  Live video and stats links can be found at www.MGAKnights.com for the game.
