The Jacksonville Red Devils picked up a pair of blowout conference wins at Dupree Park Tuesday evening.
Jacksonville had their way with Little Rock McClellan, beating the Lions 15-0 and 22-0.
The Red Devils took both wins in three-inning, run-rule decisions. James Tucker tossed a shutout in the opening game, while Blake Perry did the same in the second game of the double-header.
The opening game was just 3-0 heading into the third inning after Derek St. Claire, Perry and Kaleb Reeves each scored in the first inning. After a scoreless second inning, the Red Devils exploded for 12 runs in the third inning to end the game early. Eleven of those runs came with two outs as walks, hit batters and errors began piling up.
Jacksonville’s win in the second game could have been even uglier if not for the umpire making the teams switch sides in the top of the third after the Red Devils scored their twenty-second run. The Red Devils led 11-0 after the second inning, then added 11 more runs in the third inning.
Perry doubled, singled and scored three runs in the second game and scored five runs on the night. Justin Abbot also scored five runs in the two games, reaching on a single, three walks and two errors.
Brandon Hickingbotham and Deaundray Harris each scored three runs in the second win. Ryan Mallison had a pair of singles, two walks and scored four runs on the night.
Jacksonville is scheduled to take on the Searcy Lions on Friday, weather permitting.
