Dolphins down Red Devils for Schildt’s first win


Chad Schildt is off the schneid at Battery Creek, as the Dolphins gave their first-year coach his first victory at the helm in Burton with a 7-3 road win over Wade Hampton on Wednesday.

Gunner Hollingsworth had a big night — he had a pair of hits and struck out seven in a complete game, allowing three runs and five hits. The last two runs came in the seventh when Creek was in command.

The Dolphins got things started in the first inning when Quade Matthews doubled on the first pitch of his at-bat, scoring run. Wade Hampton knotted the game up in the bottom of the first, but Creek pulled ahead for good with one run in the third inning and tacked on a pair of runs in the fifth and two more in the sixth before adding an insurance tally in the seventh.

The Dolphins played error-free ball behind Hollingsworth and had one of their best offensive outputs of the season with 15 hits and 10 stolen bases. Bradley Smith was 3-4 with a 2B and an RBI, Matthews had two 2Bs and an RBI, and CJ Robinson, Hunter Smith, and Hunter Hollingsworth also had two hits apiece.

Creek couldn’t keep the momentum going Friday, falling 16-0 at region rival Hanahan. Robinson, Reily Doray, and Gunner Hollingsworth each had a hit. The Dolphins (1-11, 0-3) travel to Bishop England on Friday.
