Pensacola Junior College lost its first three games of the 2006 baseball season, but the Pirates have since won 11 straight games.
At the end of that streak are back-to-back 10-0 wins over the Jefferson Davis Community College Warhawks.
PJC began its two-game sweep of the Warhawks Sunday with a seven-inning win in Brewton.
Five JDCC pitchers combined to issue 13 walks. That combination along with nine PJC hits, three errors by the Warhawks defense and only three hits mustered by the JDCC offense ended the game two innings early.
The big blow for the victorious Pirates was their six-run top of the third inning. PJC received three of its free passes that inning and also got a pair of two-run singles courtesy of Brandon Hamilton and Jono Waugh.
Meanwhile JDCC got a leadoff single from Jamar Bryant in the bottom of the first inning, but did not get another hit against PJC pitcher Nick Presley until Jeremy White singled with two out in the sixth. Daniel Hodge came off the bench and got the Warhawks other hit with a single in the seventh.
Tim Horne suffered the loss, as he went two plus innings and allowed the first three runs.
No statistics from Monday's game, which was played at PJC and was a makeup of Saturday's rained out contest, were available at press time.
JDCC (3-6) is now on an eight-day layoff. The Warhawks' next action is not until next Tuesday when it plays a 2 p.m. doubleheader at LaGrange (Ga.).
