Jackson State sweeps Alabama A&M

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Jackson State is probably wishing it could face Alabama A&M's pitching every game after its weekend series against the Bulldogs.

The Tigers scored 22 runs against Alabama A&M on Friday and continued their hot streak on Saturday.

JSU swept its double header, 10-9 and 20-1, to sweep the three-game SWAC East Division series in Huntsville, Alabama.

The Tigers turned a 4-0 lead in the second game into a 12-0 advantage with an eight-run fourth inning. C.J. Newsome, Tony Holton, Carlos Diaz, Bryce Williams and Bryce Brown all contributed RBIs in the frame.

Diaz posted his third four-hit game of the week and drove in four runs. Holton went 3 for 4 at the plate with three RBIs. Cornelius Copeland, Jesus Santana, Newsome, Williams and Lakon Wilson each drove in two runs.

Jamal Wilson held the Bulldogs to three hits and one run in his seven innings on the mound. He also struck out six.
