The ICC baseball team moved up three spots to No. 12 in the most recent NJCAA DII baseball poll and flexed their nationally-ranked muscle in a sweep of Beville State (Ala.) Community College in Fayette, Alabama on Tuesday.
The Indians hit the road for the first time this season and they handled the road test in game one winning 6-0, but finished the day in a 4-4 tie after 10-innings in game two as the game was called due to darkness.
The Indians (4-0) will travel to Fayette, Ala. to take on the Bears (1-4) in a non-conference doubleheader starting at 2:30 p.m. The games will replace a doubleheader against Lake Land (Ill.) College (0-4) that was rained out on Sunday.
The Indians held off a pair of late rallies from Snead State (Ala.) to sweep the Parsons with a 3-2 win in Game 1 and an 8-4 Game 2 victory to open the season. Jackson Lancaster (Corinth) went 6-for-7 with a walk, two doubles, and two RBI in Saturday’s doubleheader.
The ICC baseball team will host Calhoun (Ala.) Community College and will MACJC foes at Delta State, Smith-Wills Stadium and Southern Miss in its fall schedule, head coach Rick Collier announced on Monday.
