PRCC baseball reaches double-digit wins with sweep

POPLARVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

The Pearl River Community College Wildcats swept a hastily-arranged doubleheader this past weekend with Lake Land College of Mattoon, Ill.

Drake Nightengale (1-0) and Preston Krummel combined on a one-hitter in the opener that the Wildcats won 10-0 in five innings.

Shemar Page (4-0) allowed a run on three hits with seven strikeouts in four innings in the nightcap, as PRCC (11-3) rallied from a run down to take 3-1 victory.

The Friday doubleheader was slotted after a double-dip scheduled with Spoon River College of Canton, Ill., was canceled. The Lakers (4-10) had been in Mississippi, playing at East Central Community College and Meridian Community College earlier in the week.

In the opener, PRCC grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a pair of errors, a Bryson Medious single and a fly out, then tacked on seven runs in the fourth.

Wiley Cleland and Page opened the inning with singles, moved up on a bunt and then both scored on an error to make it 3-0.

A hit batter and Derek Eberly’s single loaded the bases, and Medious came through with a two-run single to make the score 5-0.

Simon Landry, Noah Barron and Cleland followed with consecutive, run-scoring singles to boost the lead to 8-0.

The Wildcats brought the game to an end in the bottom of the fifth with a pair of runs on run-scoring singles by Eberly and Hudson Little.

Nightengale pitched four scoreless innings, allowing one hit, while walking one and striking out three.

In the second game, PRCC trailed 1-0 before bunching three runs in the third inning. Medious singled, stole second and moved up on a bad throw, then scored on another error to tie the game.

Matt Taylor followed with an RBI-double and Luke Harper’s single drove home Taylor to round out the scoring.

Luke Bradley, Colin Danley and Jerod Meggs followed Page to the mound and each pitched a scoreless inning, with Meggs picking up his third save of the season.

The Wildcats bumped up a doubleheader with Elaine P. Nunez College of Chalmette, La., by a day, with the first game now scheduled for a 4 p.m. start Tuesday.
