The Mississippi Delta Community College baseball team opens Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) conference play on Wednesday when the Trojans welcome Northeast Mississippi Community College to Moorhead at 1 p.m.

Mississippi Delta currently sits at 8-8 overall after a week of Spring Break action that saw the Trojans go 2-2 on the week. MDCC defeated Rhodes College, 12-3 and 6-4, in a road doubleheader in Memphis on Wednesday. The Trojans then played the first two home games of the 2018 season on Thursday, hosting Southeastern (Iowa) Community College, but MDCC was not able to come away with a victory. Delta lost game one, 4-3, and game two, 7-1.

In game one against Rhodes, the Trojans were led on the hill by Trey Jones (Olive Branch) and Parker Caston (Cleveland), who got the win and the save on the mound, respectively. Jones went the first four innings before turning it over to Caston for the final nine outs.

MDCC was led on the offensive end by Parker Lane (Columbus), who had three hits and two RBI, as well as Dawson Ivey (Clarkdale), Tyler Jones (Columbus), Markarius Lee (Nesbit) and Devontae Rhodes (Greenville), who each had two hits in the opener. Ivey also led the way with four RBI.

Logan Clark (Cleveland) was the star of Wednesday’s nightcap versus Rhodes, as the freshman left-hander went six innings and allowed only two earned runs to move to 2-0 on the season. Brendan Painter (Hernando) earned his second save of the season after throwing a scoreless seventh inning.

Tyler Jones and Ty Riche (Brandon) each had two hits to pace the MDCC offense.

In Thursday’s home opener versus Southeastern, the Trojans could not offer up enough offensive support to get Korey Bell (Brentwood, Tenn.) the victory on the mound, as the hulking right-hander went six innings and allowed only two runs to cross, after striking out seven batters and allowing only one walk. Painter threw the seventh inning and allowed two runs to cross, thus taking the loss on the hill to fall to 0-2.

Rhodes led the way on offense in game two versus Southeastern, as the freshman outfielder/pitcher had two hits in the nightcap. Carson Forrester (Columbus) took the loss on the hill after starting the contest.

MDCC baseball fighting through weather

  • Wednesday, 07 March 2018 13:45

The Mississippi Delta Community College baseball program currently sits at 6-4 overall after battling with Mother Nature for most of the early part of the 2018 campaign.

The Trojans recently won one game and lost the other in a split doubleheader with Enterprise (Ala.) Community College and East Central Community College, respectively, on Saturday in Decatur. MDCC beat Enterprise in walk-off fashion in the nightcap, 4-3, after falling in the opener to EC, 8-4.

Carson Forrester (Columbus) earned the win on the mound in game two after going all seven innings and allowing only three runs to cross the plate. Tyler Jones (Columbus) scored the game-winning run on a passed ball, and Markarius Lee (Nesbit) was the offensive leader after collecting two hits.

In Saturday’s opener versus the home standing Warriors of East Central, it was Jones who led the way offensively, as the sophomore infielder/outfielder had three hits for MDCC. His offensive output alone was not enough to get Korey Bell (Brentwood, Tenn.) the victory on the mound, however, despite the redshirt freshman going seven innings and allowing only two earned runs to cross. Bell picked up the no-decision on the hill, while Trey Jones (Olive Branch) took the loss.

Mississippi Delta was scheduled to play on the road at Bevill State (Ala.) Community College on Tuesday, but the games were rained out, so the Trojans are still on the lookout for possible games on Thursday.

Regardless of if MDCC plays on Thursday or not, the Trojans will play another split doubleheader on Friday in Senatobia against Coahoma Community College at 11 a.m. and Northwest Community College at 2 p.m.

Please stay tuned to the Trojans official baseball Twitter feed, @trojanbb, for schedule updates.

Trojans baseball off to hot start in 2018

  • Monday, 19 February 2018 09:35

The Mississippi Delta Community College baseball team has gotten the 2018 campaign off on the right foot in the early going, as the Trojans sit at 5-1 after the first six games of the season.

The Trojans opened the season on Friday, Feb. 9 in Millington, Tenn., against Volunteer State Community College, and Delta opened up the bats in a big way with 25 hits in the doubleheader. MDCC claimed game one, 13-8, before winning game two, 6-4.

On Valentine's Day, Delta traveled to Jackson to face Millsaps College (JV) and came away with a 5-2 victory in game one and an 8-0 win in the nightcap.

Most recently, Mississippi Delta is coming off a two-game split at Meridian Community College on Saturday afternoon. The Trojans won game one, 9-4, before falling 9-8 in game two.

In the season opener on Feb. 9, it was Matt McCurley (Brandon) that provided the opening punch, as the freshman first baseman went 5-5 with a home run and four RBI, while teammates Dawson Ivey (Clarkdale), Tyler Jones and Parker Lane (both of Columbus) each added three hits.

Wesley Ross (Houlka) earned the win on the mound in relief to move to 1-0.

Dalton Lambre (Cleveland) and Markarius Lee (Nesbit) were the offensive leaders in the season's second game, as the duo each had two hits in the Opening Day nightcap.

Parker Caston (Cleveland) got the game two victory on the mound, as the right-hander threw 1.2 innings of scoreless baseball before turning things over to Brendan Painter (Hernando), who got his first save of the season.

In the opener against Millsaps on Valentine's Day, it was McCurley and Devontae Rhodes (Greenville) that were the heavy hitters, as each Trojan picked up three hits in the first game.

Rhodes also earned the victory on the mound, as the freshman righty threw four innings and allowed only one run to cross the plate. Ross tossed 1.2 innings of scoreless relief to earn his first save.

Ivey got two hits to pace the offense in game two against the Majors, but the story of the nightcap was Logan Clark (Cleveland), who threw four shutout innings in his collegiate debut and struck out seven hitters while not allowing a single hit. The freshman left-hander is now 1-0 on the season.

On Saturday at Meridian, the Trojans broke out the bats in game one by scoring nine runs and collecting 16 hits, led by three hits apiece from Lane and Lee, as well as two knocks from Cade Blanchard (Prairieville, La.), Will Godfrey (Columbus) and Jones.

Trey Jones (Southaven) earned the win on the mound in game one against the Eagles, moving to 1-0 on the year, before turning the ball over to Carson Forrester (Columbus), who was outstanding in relief. The imposing right-hander tossed three scoreless innings to earn his first collegiate save.

Despite scoring eight runs and picking up nine hits in the second game on Saturday, the Trojans were unable to hold a 7-2 lead heading into the sixth inning and came away with their first loss of the 2018 campaign.

Ivey, Lane and Lee all had two hits in the nightcap versus Meridian.

Painter took the loss to fall to 0-1 on the year.

Mississippi Delta will now host Mineral Area (Mo.) Community College on Friday in a 12 p.m. doubleheader at Jimmy Bellipanni Baseball Complex in Moorhead. The Trojans will turn around and play Mineral Area in a noon doubleheader on Saturday, but with heavy rains expected throughout the Delta, the schedule may be altered.

Please stay tuned to the Trojans official baseball Twitter feed, @trojanbb, for schedule updates.
