— SCOOBA — Winners of eight of their last 10 decisions, the East Mississippi Community College baseball team will take a No. 6 national ranking into Wednesday’s MACJC North Division season-opening home doubleheader against Holmes Community College.

First pitch for the midweek baseball twin bill is set for 4 p.m. at EMCC’s Gerald Poole Field on the Scooba campus.

Coach Chris Rose’s 13-5 EMCC Lions jumped 10 notches in this week’s NJCAA Division II baseball poll that was released Tuesday.  

Once-beaten Jones County Junior College (17-1) ascended to this week’s No. 1 spot in the NJCAA Division II ranking.
