    Southpaw Jake Bush took the loss in relief. He went 2 2/3 innings and allowed three runs on five hits. He fanned two batters and walked a pair.

    Starter Mason Woodrow went 4 2/3 innings and allowed two earned runs on four hits. He fanned five batters and walked five.

    Conner West hurled the final 1 2/3 innings and fanned one batter.

    ECCC was up 13-6 in the top of the 8th in a nine inning game against Baton Rouge  Community College at press time.
