MOUNT VERNON—The Brewton-Parker Baseball took two out of three from Shorter College Friday and Saturday and now find themselves in first place. In the first game Brewton-Parker ace Joey Delgado kept hitters off balance, and threw his 5th complete game of the season. On the evening, Delgado gave up only 2 runs, and struck out 13. Delgado now has 86 punch outs on the year, which is the most for any pitcher in the NAIA. He is also second in the NAIA in wins, with 8.

The Barons got on the board early, and never relinquished the lead scoring a run in each of the first two innings, and then 3 in the 4th, with 2 runs coming on Ryan Hewitt's bases loaded double to left.

They capped off the scoring in the 7th with 2 runs on Todd Alls' 4th home run of the season. The 2 run shot gave the Barons a 7-2 lead. Alls was 2-2 on the evening, with a home run, 3 RBI, and 3 walks.

Todd Alls scored a third run on the play, when the Shorter first baseman Shannon Houston threw the ball away trying to throw Alls out at 3rd. The Barons added 4 more runs in the fourth, and a single run in the fifth to complete the run rule victory.

The Hawks got the better of the Barons in game 2, as the Brewton-Parker bats were held in check by Shorter ace Tim Day. Day threw a complete game, allowing only 4 hits and striking out 7. The Barons didn't make things any easier on themselves, committing 3 errors, and 3 balks.
