tv_sports 10dbMONTICELLO — Senior Chris Guzman threw a complete-game two-hit shutout to lead the University of Arkansas at Monticello baseball team to a 10-0 win over Southern Nazarene on Sunday to secure the team’s fourth straight Great American Conference series victory.

   In addition to only allowing two hits throughout seven innings, Guzman (3-1) also set down seven SNU hitters via strikeout and did not allow a walk. The Crimson Storm (16-22, 8-19 GAC) only reached scoring position once off an error in the top of the first inning. Guzman, making the final start of his career at home, did not allow a hit in the final four innings. He threw four perfect innings out of seven.

   Guzman’s offensive support started in the bottom of the first, when the Boll Weevils (28-15, 16-10 GAC) scored a pair of runs on back-to-back run-producing at bats. Senior Danny Loya started the rally with an RBI single, followed by an RBI double from junior Ben Agredano.

   In the second, UAM added three more runs, all on a bases-clearing double from senior Hunter Allday. UAM went up 7-0 in the fourth on Allday’s second RBI double of the day followed by a sac fly from senior T.J. Cox.

   The Boll Weevils took an 8-0 lead in the fifth on an RBI single from junior D’Marco Poindexter, who was moved to leadoff spot on Sunday for the first time of the season.

   Senior Taylor Eaves gave UAM its seventh run-rule victory of the season with a two-run double down the right field line in the bottom of the seventh to end the game. Eaves went 3-for-5 in the win, extending his current streak of 25 straight games to reach base safely.

   SNU’s Nate Saquilon (4-5) took the loss after allowing eight runs off 12 hits in the first 4.2 innings of work.

   The Boll Weevils are set for a non-conference matchup with in-state GAC rival and 15th-ranked Southern Arkansas this Wednesday, April 17 at home for the final home game of the 2013 season. First pitch is set for 2 p.m.
