HATTIESBURG, Miss.- It seems as if, for the time being, the Southern Miss baseball team can do no wrong. Completing its three-game sweep of the Marshall Thundering Herd on Sunday, the Golden Eagles were supported by a rock-solid pitching performance of ace pitcher James McMahon. McMahon continued his historical season, throwing for six shutout innings in the series finale.
This was only the second series sweep for the Golden Eagles, and their first since the season-opening sweep of Murray State. The win on Sunday was their sixth straight, dating back to the April 26th series finale win against UTSA. Last week they swept their two midweek games, against Alabama and South Alabama, respectively, before going into this weekend series against Marshall.
The Golden Eagles saw their record improve to 28-16-1, with a conference record of 13-10. The Sunday game also brought McMahon’s record as a starter this season to 9-1.
On top of all of the success the team has had over the past week, there was also one specific individual that was honored. He is a pitcher. And he is not named James McMahon. Yes, it was the junior, Cody Carroll, that registered his first career complete game in the Friday series-opener against the Thundering Herd. Cody lead the team to a 6-0 shutout, while striking out eight, and only allowing three hits and three walks in the process.
