Here’s a picture of the weekend in Magnolia State college baseball:
30 — Runs by Southern Miss in its C-USA opening series against Houston. Somehow, the Golden Eagles only won two of three.
15 — Strikeouts by USM’s Andrew Pierce in Friday’s 8-0 win over Houston.
5 — Hits by Ole Miss’ Alex Yarbrough, helping the Rebels take two of three at Alabama. Yarbrough now has 37 hits on the year and a .407 average, both team-highs.
5 — Wins on the season, against no losses, for Mississippi State’s Chris Stratton. He beat Arkansas on Friday, the only win for the Bulldogs in the SEC series.
9 — Saves for Belhaven’s Josh Clarke, including one in Friday’s victory over Spring Hill. BU (25-12) swept the series to get to 10-8 in the SSAC.
8 — Errors by Mississippi College in its series opening loss against Louisiana College. The Choctaws were error-free in Saturday’s doubleheader sweep that moved them to 5-4 in the American Southwest Conference.
8 — Home runs this season for Jackson State’s Kendall Logan, who hit two as the Tigers took two of three in a non-league series at Florida A&M.;
4 — RBIs by Delta State’s Jonathan Andrews in a much-needed 10-5 win on Sunday against Valdosta State; the Statesmen lost the first two games of the GSC series.
3 — Straight losses by William Carey in a home SSAC series against Faulkner. The Crusaders fell to 8-9 in the league.
37 — Points by which Millsaps’ Wes Perkins lifted his batting average (to .337) as the Majors took two of three at Oglethorpe to start their final SCAC season.
