Trojans baseball opens conference play on Wednesday vs. Northeast

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

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.
