Golden Eagles earn first sweep with 17-3 thrashing of Alcorn State

Another dominant hitting performance, and another stellar outing on the mound led to a Southern Miss series sweep of in-state rival Alcorn State Saturday afternoon at Pete Taylor Park. Jake Drehoff pitched eight innings, giving up six hits, and three runs on a home run in the eighth, while striking out eight to earn his fifth win of the season.

Mason Robbins drove in two scores and scored twice himself on three of five hitting to lead the Golden Eagles (19-12, 3-3) offensively. Southern Miss out-hit Alcorn State (7-25) 13 to 7, and scored 13 of the 17 runs in the eighth and ninth innings. Five times, the Golden Eagles scored on bases-loaded walk situations.

One particular, and possibly disturbing, trend also continued this afternoon. Centerfielder Michael Sterling was hit by pitch three times today, once in the jaw from Braves starting pitcher Mundo Sanchez. Though he is okay, Sterling is second nationally in the hit-by-pitch category, having been clocked 17 times this season.

Southern Miss next travels to Metairie, La. to take on Louisiana State University. First pitch is set for 6:30 pm.
