MERIDIAN —     Competition in the annual Rush Invitational began on a disappointing note for the East Central Community College baseball squad which dropped a 5-2 decision to Faulkner State Community College Saturday afternoon at the Clark/Gay Baseball Complex in Decatur.

    The Diamond Warriors managed just four hits in the loss - a double by Kyle McCullough and singles from Zach May, Caleb Woods and Lane Fazende.

    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.

    Matchups for today include Baton Rouge vs. Faulkner State at 11 a.m.; Baton Rouge vs. Wallace State at 1:30 p.m.; and Wallace State vs. Faulkner State at 4 p.m.
