Clarksville, Ark.-Mississippi College starting pitcher Tyler Seaman tossed a no-hitter in a 11-1 game two victory over the Eagles Friday in Clinton, Mississippi.

The Choctaws (22-13, 12-3) came from behind to edge Ozarks 7-6 in game one. Ozarks will head into the playoffs with a 9-9 American Southwest Conference mark.

The day belonged to Seaman as he controlled the Eagles’ bats throughout the afternoon. Ozarks (15-19) plated their only run of the game in the first inning when David Smith stole home. Smith reached on an error and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Bruce Cameron. Smith went to third on a Choctaw miscue. However, the Eagles couldn’t manufacture another run in the game, and only reached base three times after Smith’s score. Two of those were on walks issued by Seaman and the other was on an error.

The Choctaws put things together at the plate, too, as they held a 6-1 advantage after two innings. Ozarks biggest threat came in the seventh when Logan Kizer and Jonathan Cox drew back-to-back walks, but Seaman got Chris Driedric to fly out to end the inning.

Seaman fanned seven in a complete game victory.

Travis Conner (1-1) took the loss after pitching one and one-third innings.

In game one, the Eagles led 6-5 heading into the bottom of the sixth before the Choctaws plated a pair of runs in the bottom half of the frame to secure a win. In the first, Jeremy Hogan singled in Smith. Todd Koch homered in the fifth to tie the game at 2-2. Later in the inning, Cox had a sacrifice RBI and Cameron would also score to put the lead at 4-2. The Choctaws matched the Eagles with three runs in the bottom of the fifth. Hogan came up big in the sixth with a two-run double to give Ozarks a 6-5 advantage. However, Mississippi College answered with two runs in the bottom half to go up for good.

Hogan finished 3-for-3 with three RBI.

John Scheuring (4-2) took the loss after pitching the final inning. Bruce Cameron went five innings as the starter.

The Eagles will travel to Hendrix College April 14.
