    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.
