HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) _ J.C. Sanner fired a complete-game, three-hit shutout Friday night to give William Carey University a 2-0 victory over Campbellsville University at Milton Wheeler Field.

Sanner’s seven-strikeout pitching gem proved to be the Crusaders’ highlight of the four-game weekend series.

The Tigers (3-1), ranked 14th nationally in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics top 25 baseball poll, took Friday’s opener 7-2, then swept a Saturday doubleheader from Carey, 4-1 and 6-2.

Carey (3-5) will visit Louisiana State University-Alexandria Wednesday in Alexandria, La. The first game of a doubleheader begins at 3 p.m.
