Northeast baseball wins at home

Northeast Mississippi Community College baseball team picked up a win against Northwest-Shoals Community College at Harold T. White Field on Tuesday, March 8.
The Tigers (4-7) knocked off the Patriots (13-5) in game one 10-6 and were not able to play game two due to inclement weather.  
Northeast allowed one run in the top of the first inning but quickly responded in its first at bat, scoring three runs to go up 3-1 going into the top of the second frame.
Both teams went scoreless in the second and third innings but the Tigers were able to add three more scores in the bottom of the fourth thanks to a big two RBI double by Trae Allison to push their lead to 6-1.
In the bottom of the fifth inning, the Tigers took advantage of a wild pitch by Justin Daniel (1-1) and extended the their lead as Corey Smith crossed home plate to make it 7-1.
However, the Patriots would respond with three runs in the sixth, two of which came on a two RBI single from Nick Flanagan, to cut the lead to 7-4.  Northeast, however, put the game away with two runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.
Tigers pitcher Drew Dodds (1-1) closed out the game for the Tigers on a rain soaked field to get the 10-6 win.
The wet field conditions caused the cancelation of game two and no rescheduled make-up date and time have been set.
Northeast hosts Ellsworth (Iowa) on Friday at 1 p.m. before a make-up date with Arkansas Baptist College on Sunday, March 13 at Harold T. White Field in Booneville.
