MONTGOMERY, Ala. --- Sophmore Keegan Lambeth accounted for all three of the Hawks' runs in the two run win, 3-1, over Atlanta Christian College on senior day at Posey Field.

Atlanta Christian's Sean Finn opened up the scoring in the top of the 1st inning with a solo home-run over the left field wall, 1-0, giving the Chargers (23-25) a one run advantage.

In the bottom of the 1st inning, Lambeth hammered a solo shot over the right field wall for the game-tying run, 1-1, against Atlanta Christian.

Lambeth drove in his second-RBI of the game on a two out single to right center advancing senior Miles Walding across home plate, 2-1.

After a stretch of scoreless innings, senior Drew Harrell's double down the right field line drove in Lambeth extending the Hawks' lead by two runs, 3-1, with no outs in the bottom of the 8th inning.

At the plate, Huntingdon's Harrell (2-for-4) and Lambeth (2-for-3) each paced the team with two hits in the victory. Lambeth registered a game-high two-RBI's while scoring the other run against the Chargers on Tuesday evening.
