JCJC wins 18th in row, ‘magic number’ at 1

GOODMAN, MS -

No. 2 Jones County Junior College baseball team swept a Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges’ doubleheader from Holmes Community College Wednesday, running the Bobcats’ winning streak to 18 games.

JCJC (37-7, 22-4 MACJC) needs one win at Meridian Community College or a Pearl River Community College loss at Coahoma Community College to clinch the MACJC crown and top seed in the postseason tournament.

The Bobcats used a seven-run sixth inning, highlighted by Jake Mason’s two-run home run, to finish off the Bulldogs (17-26, 4-24) in six innings, 12-2, in Wednesday’s first game.

Trace Henry led the way at the plate with a double and single, R.J. Brown had two singles. Luther Woullard doubled and scored three runs and Robbie Woody singled and two RBIs.

Will Freeman (7-1) allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits. He struck seven and didn’t walk a batter.

JCJC won the nightcap 8-3, with Brown and Hunter Harris each swatting a two-run home run. Harris’ shot capped a four-run rally in the third inning that erased a 2-0 Holmes’ lead and Brown added his homer an inning later.

Tyler Spring (8-1) allowed three runs on four hits. He walked three and struck out nine. Bryce Fagan pitched a 1-2-3 seventh, striking out two.

Earlier in the week, Freeman was named MACJC and National Junior College Pitcher of the Week for his April 24 performance in a 2-0 win over Pearl River.

Freeman, a sophomore right-hander from Semmes, Ala., scattered six hits in the nine-inning, complete game, striking out 18 and walking none.
