Pearl River Community College once let a chance to keep its flickering playoff hopes alive in an MACJC doubleheader against Meridian Friday afternoon at Wildcat Stadium.
The Wildcats played one of their best all-around games of the season in the opener, defeating the Eagles 11-3 in six innings, but were unable to seal the deal in the nightcap, as Meridian broke open a scoreless game in the late innings to win 5-1.
Needing a sweep to stay in realistic playoff contention, the Wildcats saw a big comeback go for naught as the Wolves came away with a 9-7 victory in the opener.
Pearl River Community College shook off a run-rule defeat to earn a split of an MACJC baseball doubleheader Saturday at Meridian.
Meridian built a 10-2 lead after two innings and coasted to a 14-4 win in seven innings in the opener, but the Wildcats rolled a 7-2 victory in the nightcap.
Pearl River Community College baseball has made comebacks a big part of its game during a 10-game winning streak, and that was the case again Saturday in an MACJC doubleheader at Itawamba.
This time, however, it wasn’t enough as the ninth-ranked Indians swept the two games, winning the opener 5-4 in 12 innings, then holding off the Wildcats in the nightcap 7-6.
The losses knocked PRCC (15-7 overall, 6-2 conference) out of first place in the MACJC standings. Itawamba improved to 20-4 and 7-1.
