Booneville, Miss. – Northeast Mississippi Community College’s baseball team dropped to 2-2 overall after falling to Calhoun Community College (7-6) at Harold T. White Field on Tuesday afternoon.

In game one, the Tigers were unable to score any runs while the Warhawks picked up runs in the second and third innings to help seal the 2-0 victory.

Northeast’s starting pitcher Beck Vann (0-1) picked up his first loss on the year while Calhoun’s hurler Josh Haggerman (3-1) cashed in on another win in the opener.

The only multiple hitter in game one was John Watkins for the Warhawks.

However, in game two the bats got hot for both clubs with Northeast jumping out to a 5-0 lead heading into the top of the fifth inning.  Unfortunately, the Tigers’ defense didn’t hold up in fifth frame and Northeast gave up eight runs in that inning which proved to be too much to overcome.

Coach Farris’ team fell behind 9-5 and gave up one more run in the top of the sixth and dropped game two 10-5.

Calhoun’s relief pitcher Todd Gibson (1-0) got the win for the Warhawks while the Tigers’ Josh Drake (0-1) got the loss.  Multiple hitters included Robert Green for the Warhawks and Taylor Sasser for the Tigers. Will Robertson and  Riley Alef both had doubles for Northeast.

Northeast hosts Southwest Tennessee in a non-division doubleheader at Harold T. White Field in Booneville on Tuesday, February 26. First pitch is set for noon.
