East Central walks off Neshoba Central with 3-2 win

After hours high school baseball last night between East Central and Neshoba Central in game one of the 5A State Championship series at Trustmark Park in Pearl.

The Hornets from Hurley, well they must have had plenty of coffee, Brandt Dickerson, the junior, walk off RBI double into the right field corner, scoring Andrew Marble all the way from first and just like that, East Central is one win away from winning its third state crown all-time and its first since 2008.

Game two against the Rockets is currently set for 7 p.m. Thursday.
