Wildcats swept in doubleheader at Northeast

POPLARVILLE – Pearl River Community College continues to struggle in MACJC baseball play, as the Wildcats dropped both ends of a doubleheader Friday afternoon against Northeast Mississippi at Booneville.
 
The Tigers dropped the Wildcats 13-2 in the first game of the doubleheader in seven innings, then posted a 4-0 victory in the nightcap.
 
PRCC dropped to 18-10 overall and 3-7 in conference play; Northeast improved to 14-12 and 5-3.
 
The Tigers opened up a 10-1 lead early in the opener, thanks to an eight-run outburst in the bottom of the third inning, and the Wildcats never threatened the rest of the way. NEMCC added three more runs in the fifth to put the mercy rule into effect.
 
Zachary Clark had a home run for Pearl River, and Gage Teer had a double and a single. Parker Dungan (2-2) took the loss. Joseph Caver (3-2) was the winning pitcher for Northeast.
 
The Wildcats could only muster three hits in the second game against the Tigers’ Trace Lee (2-2), who struck out five in seven innings.
 
Peyton Lee (0-3) allowed just three hits in five innings of work, but surrendered three runs in the third inning, only one of which was earned. He struck out six and walked four.
 
PRCC will return home for a pair of conference doubleheaders, against Southwest on Wednesday and Itawamba on Saturday.
 
In softball action on Friday, Pearl River dropped both games of a doubleheader at East Mississippi, 11-3 in five innings and 6-5. No further information was available. PRCC (19-14, 9-9) hosts Jones County on Wednesday, then travels to Mississippi Delta on Saturday.
