ELDRIDGE — The Clinton River Kings baseball team swept another Mississippi Athletic Conference doubleheader Thursday, cruising past the North Scott Lancers 13-4 and 20-6.

In the opener 10th-ranked Clinton (13-2, 7-1 MAC) built a 6-0 lead after two innings. North Scott (6-12, 2-7) worked within two with a four-run third inning. But, the River Kings erupted for seven runs in the sixth inning to blow the game open.

Scott DeAngelis collected four hits, including a double and triple to pace the Clinton offense in Game 1. Ryan Clausen had three hits. Ryan Hovey drove in three runs while teammate Curtis Howard drove in two.

In Game 2 the River Kings built an early 10-1 lead. They led 10-6 before again blowing things open with a 10-run explosion in the sixth.

Clausen and Drew Matzen had four hits apiece. Hovey drove in five more runs in the second game. Clausen and Jordan Camp had four RBIs apiece.

“This was a great day for CHS baseball,” Clinton coach Trent Snowden said. “Not only did we beat a quality team in North Scott, but we did it in convincing style. We did everything a baseball team can possibly do right all of the time.”
