Four runs in the first inning for Alabama Southern—two on bang-bang plays at the plate and an obstruction call—paved the way for a 5-2 conference win for the Eagles of Monroeville over the JDCC baseball team Thursday in Brewton. JDCC also had a costly error in the first inning on a would-be double play that helped lead to a run.
Alabama Southern went on to add one more run in the fourth inning while holding JDCC to one run each in the sixth and eighth innings to get the three-run win. The loss for JDCC dropped the Warhawks to 19-18 overall and to 14-11 in conference play.
Leading the way at the plate for the Warhawks of JDCC in the loss were Jonathan Moore, John-Mark Cosby, Craig Headley and Alex Jones.
