Hallock notches pair of wins to help Kent State win the MAC

Perkins’ Kyle Hallock picked up a pair of wins to improve to 8-5 as Kent State won five games in three days to win the Mid-American Conference Tournament Championship last Saturday.

"Kyle Hallock was unreal," head coach Scott Stricklin said through a press release. "For him to do that, to come in and get the win in the first game and pitch into the eighth inning in the second game, you can’t ask for anything more. We were hoping for four or five innings out of him. What he gave us was unbelievable. He is a tough kid and a competitor. He had something to prove after the first outing on Wednesday. I am really proud of the way he pitched."

Hallock, after throwing the 10th inning to pick up the win in the first game against Eastern Michigan, threw seven innings and gave up only five hits and two runs while striking out six.

Hallock was able to keep Central Michigan off the board. In the fifth inning, the first two Chippewa batters reached and advanced into scoring position on a sacrifice bunt, but a ground ball back to Hallock and a strikeout ended the inning. In the sixth, two singles wrapped around a fly out put a pair of runners on with one out. Hallock induced a ground out and a fly out to end the threat.
Hallock is third in innings pitched with 83 at Kent State, while striking out 69 batters.
