Simon Landry’s three-run home run helped power Pearl River Community College to a first-game victory and Magruder O’Bannon and Matt Taylor each drove in two runs in the nightcap Saturday to sweep a Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges' doubleheader at Northeast Mississippi Community College.

Closer Colby White picked up a save in each game as the 14th-ranked Wildcats (19-4, 4-0) won for the ninth time in their last 10 games.

Shemar Page (5-0) allowed one run on six hits in six innings work as PRCC held on for a 5-3 victory in the opener. Landry popped his eighth home run of the season, a three-run shot, to help the Wildcats withstand a two-run Northeast rally in the final inning.

In the nightcap, PRCC trailed 2-0 before tying the game in the third inning on O’Bannon’s two-run single, and then going ahead on a run-scoring double by Bryson Medious and a two-run single by Taylor in the fifth inning.

Northeast got within a run in the bottom of the inning, but White wrapped up the game with two strikeouts and a groundout in the seventh to pick up his second save of the day and his fourth of the season.

Nightengale (2-0) picked up the victory.

PRCC will host Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in a MACJC doubleheader, starting at 3 p.m. at Dub Herring Stadium.
