Trojans baseball splits last three conference doubleheaders

The Mississippi Delta Community College baseball team has split three consecutive Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) doubleheaders after Wednesday’s double dip split with Meridian Community College in Moorhead.

The Trojans won game one, 12-11, in thrilling fashion, before falling 14-12 in the nightcap. MDCC trailed 11-8 heading into the ninth inning of game one, but a furious rally was capped off by a Will Godfrey (Columbus) walk-off double that plated two runs for the victory.

Mississippi Delta got 16 hits in the opener, led by Michael Allen (Canton), Godfrey, Dawson Ivey (Clarkdale), Tyler Jones (Columbus) and Dalton Lambre (Cleveland), who all had multiple hits apiece. Parker Caston (Cleveland) was fantastic in relief, allowing only three hits and one run over four innings, as well as picking up five strikeouts and walking only one to pick up the win in relief.

Despite an 8-run deficit in the fourth inning of game two, MDCC fought all the way back to tie the game at 12, before allowing two runs to cross late in the contest and allow MCC to come away with the 14-12 win. Jones and Matt McCurley (Brandon) each came through with two hits in the nightcap.

MDCC played East Central Community College on Saturday, March 31, and much like Wednesday’s games, won the first game and lost the second one. The Trojans claimed a 6-5 victory in game one on the strength of the pitching from Logan Clark (Cleveland), who went six innings and allowed only three runs to score to improve to 3-0 on the season. Carson Forrester (Columbus) earned his second save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning. Lambre led the way offensively with two hits.

Mississippi Delta traveled to Scooba to face East Mississippi Community College on Tuesday, March 27, and after winning 13-6 in game one, fell to the home standing Lions, 11-10, in the second contest.

Trey Jones (Olive Branch) earned the win on the hill in game one after finishing with nine strikeouts. Forrester recorded the last nine outs to earn the old-fashioned save.

Ivey and Lambre each had two hits to pace the offensive attack.

The Lions of East Miss mounted a furious rally in the second game to earn the split, but not before the Trojans made it a dogfight and took a two-run lead into the eighth inning. MDCC had 14 hits in the affair, as Allen, Godfrey, Lambre and Markarius Lee (Nesbit) each had two hits.

MDCC was scheduled to host Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College at 1 p.m. on Saturday in Moorhead, but due to the impending heavy rain forecasted for the Delta region on Friday and Saturday, the games were moved to Sunday at 1 p.m. in Moorhead.
