Mississippi Valley State Top Performers

  • Calvin McClendon wore the loss but only two of the seven runs allowed were earned, throwing six innings, and allowing just five hits on top of four strikeouts.
  • Darrien Chapman had a pleasant evening, notching a 3-for-4 outing at the dish with a walk and a run scored.
  • Maury Weaver also collected a pair of base knocks in the leadoff slot plus scoring the team’s first run, forcing an errant throw by the catcher on his second straight stolen base to earn a trip home.
  • Dreylin Holmes extended both his on-base and hitting streak to 18 and seven games respectively, on an opposite field single to right.
  • Ty Washington got onboard three times against Tiger pitching courtesy of a single and two free passes, Davon Mims reached twice by hit as well as hit-by-pitch with a steal once on the basepaths, and Chris Soeder drove in the club’s lone RBI.

The Green and White will attempt to regroup as game two takes place at 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon in the Magnolia State’s capital city.
