HARTSVILLE, S.C. -- Jeremy Hall tossed five shutout innings of relief and No. 5-ranked Mount Olive College overcame five errors in a 7-1 victory over Conference Carolinas baseball nemesis Coker (S.C.) College on Sunday afternoon.

In the three-game sweep, the Trojans' pitching staff surrendered just one unearned run in 25 innings. Preseason All-America candidate Carter Capps threw the first nine-inning no-hitter in program history on Saturday, and teammate Pete Levitt followed with a shutout in the nightcap.

Mount Olive (20-3 overall, 7-1 CC) has won 12 straight meetings in the series since 2008.

Jacob Rogers and Dan Hayduk paced the Trojans' offense with two hits apiece.

Daniel Coffey drove in a run in the eighth. Hayduk and Nick Gaeta capped the scoring with RBI singles in a two-run ninth inning.

Hall (3-0) allowed three hits, striking out four and walking one. He recorded back-to-back strikeouts in the fifth after Coker put runners on first and second with one out. Hall retired 14 of the final 16 batters he faced.
