Champ Rowland's clutch two run bomb and some nice glove work by the Pioneers set up a date with Central Alabama on Wednesday night at 9:30pm.
Rowland went 2-for-2, scored two runs and had a sacrifice bunt. Reid Moman also had two hits for SMC. Albert, who was 2-for-2 in throwing out would-be base stealers, doubled in the fifth, was bunted over by Rowland and tagged up to score on a fly out. The Pioneers scored another that way in the eighth as Moman singled and came around.
SMC (47-13) has won 17 straight games.
