East Mississippi Community College split a pair of baseball games at home Friday afternoon with Three Rivers (Ill.), winning the opener 5-4 before dropping a 2-0 decision in the nightcap.
The Lions, now 2-10 on the season, host Copiah-Lincoln in another non-division doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m.
In Friday's first game, Ben Carver (1-1) went 1 1/3 innings in relief to get the win, striking out three men and getting a game-ending double play. Kevin Long started and went a solid 5 2/3 innings for EMCC.
Darian Dotson had a pair of hits and an RBI, while Jaron Andrews doubled, tripled and also drove in a run for the Lions. Andrews' double scored Chris Ball in the first, and Ball's RBI single produced a pair of crucial runs for the Lions in the sixth.
In the second contest, EMCC lost despite a solid, complete-game effort out of Jay Blackburn on the mound. Blackburn threw a four-hitter and struck out 10, but the Lions were one-hit and dropped a 2-0 decision.
EMCC's only hit was another double by Andrews.
