KINGSPORT — The Dobyns-Bennett baseball team is bound for state.

The Indians held off Knox Catholic 3-1 on Friday in a Class AAA sectional at J. Fred Johnson Stadium to qualify for a state berth in Murfreesboro next week.

Despite a nearly three-hour rain delay that came in the top of second inning, Logan Gentry pitched the complete game for D-B. The junior right-hander allowed five hits and the one run.

Senior Chris Cook came through with the game-deciding two-run double with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the fourth inning.
