Clarksdale had nine hits as a team. “It was a really eventful night for us,” said Clarksdale coach Quavante McGregory. “I brought in my first win as a head coach, and I wouldn’t have it every other way. The defense was solid, and Londen was a dog on the mound. We also executed on the plate, as Tre Washington was dominant on the plate. All in all, we had a great night.” Clarksdale is back in motion at 6 p.m. Thursday at Strayhorn in a rematch.
