Golden Eagles explode in seventh to come back against Alcorn

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The top of the seventh inning saw Alcorn State put five runs up on the board to take what seemed to be a commanding 7-2 lead. Southern Miss one-upped, rather two-upped, Alcorn State, and put seven runs up on their in-state rival in the bottom half of the frame to re-take a 9-7 lead.

Bradley Roney gave up only one hit and struck out two over the final two innings, and the Golden Eagles (17-12, 3-3) barely avoided losing to Alcorn State for only the second time since the series began in 1985.

The Golden Eagles now own a 12-1 record over Alcorn State in the series. Matt Warren got the win for his one strike-out, no-hit appearance in middle-relief. Offensively, Southern Miss relied on right fielder Mason Robbins who turned in a one-run, two-RBI night, going three for five at the plate.

Alcorn State short-stop Angel Rosa certainly caused problems for Southern Miss, going four for five at the plate, with two runs and four RBI, two of them on a home run in his team's five-run seventh inning.

Southern Miss next travels to Matairie, La. for a 7 pm showdown with Louisiana State University.
