 ELLISVILLE – East Mississippi Community College’s baseball season ended on a high note by claiming a 12-2 run-rule nightcap victory over seventh-ranked Jones College during Friday’s game.

The Bobcats posted a 5-2 win over the visiting Lions during the opening game of the doubleheader.

The nine-inning opener was scoreless until the middle innings when Jones scored in the third, fourth and fifth frames.  After scoring a pair of runs in the fourth off EMCC starting pitcher Austin Campbell, the Bobcats added two more tallies an inning later on RBI singles by Bailee Hendon and Blake Johnson off Lion reliever Reid Blakely.

Coach Brett Kimbrel’s EMCC Lions concluded the 2019 baseball campaign with an 11-30 overall record and 8-20 conference mark.
