Southeast CC Baseball scores Tuesday doubleheader win over MCC
The Southeast Community College baseball team swept a doubleheader Tuesday at the Jaycees Sports Complex winning 6-3 and 12-9 over McCook Community College.
The Storm scored three runs in the fourth inning in Game 1 to back a combined four hitter and then erupted for eight runs in the middle three innings in Game 2 to outlast MCC.
“I thought the first game was just a good baseball game, both sides pitched and defended well, they just had a couple more swings in the game that put them over the top,” said MCC Coach Jon Olsen. “In Game 2, I just felt like we really let them off the hook early, I think we left nine or 10 runners on base in the first five innings, then we couldn’t get a zero in the mid-to-late innings on them.”
Southeast improves to 11-9 overall and 5-2 in Region IX.
MCC falls to 8-13 overall and 3-7 in region play.
MCC will be on the road Wednesday for a pair of games at Northwest Oklahoma State against the JV team. On Saturday, MCC is scheduled to start a four-game set with Lamar Community College with doubleheaders starting at 2 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.
