Six Maryville College hurlers combined to three-hit Emory & Henry College allowing the Scots to claim an 8-0 shutout victory over the Wasps on Wednesday afternoon on MC's Scotland Yard.
Starter Luke Williams earned the win after allowing only one hit over the first three innings of action. Jacob Gossett equaled William's numbers while getting the Scots through six complete innings. Joe Logsdon, Kevin Black, Bleu Butcher, and Trevor Townsend nailed down the final three innings allowing only one combined hit.
MC tacked on a run in the fifth when Johnny Carpenter crossed home plate on a wild pitch.

MC will host the Bishops for a doubleheader on Saturday beginning at 1:00 p.m. The final game of the series will be Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
