1st place Jackson State prepares for rivalry series with Alcorn State

The last time Jackson State played Alcorn State, the Tigers turned the first walkoff triple play in college baseball in five years.

First place JSU welcomes Alcorn to The Bob this weekend. Omar Johnson's crew are tied with Alabama State atop the SWAC East.

I asked the Tigers about turning three last month in Lorman plus fighting for a division title.

"Not to end the game," Johnson said when asked about the March 25th triple play. "I've seen it once before against Texas Southern, so that's our 2nd triple play since I've been around. They're hard to come by. But we had a lot of exciting things happen that weekend. I think we had a go-ahead home run to end the first game of the series. So I expect a good series this weekend."
