The Hoxie Mustangs and Piggott Mohawks split a baseball doubleheader Thursday at Hoxie.

Piggott withstood a Hoxie rally to win the opener 7-6.

The game was tied 1-1 after four innings, but Piggott scored six runs in the fifth to take a 7-1 lead.

The Mustangs began their comeback in the sixth inning. Joseph Richardson drew a walk and Cade Crisler and Jake Hitt followed with base hits to load the bases. Tanner Jarrett then knocked a grand slam to bring Hoxie to within 7-5.

In the seventh inning, Richardson walked again and scored on a hit by Crisler to cut Piggott's lead to 7-6. Hitt reached on a fielder's choice and Jarrett was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Blaine Middlecoff lined out to third to end the game.

Crisler and Hitt were each 2-for-4 at the plate.

In the nightcap, Hoxie overcame an early deficit and went on to earn the split with a 13-10 win.

Pinch hitter Garrett Burgess gave Hoxie the lead on a two-run single with two out in the fifth inning.

Jarrett shut down the Mohawks in the final two innings to preserve the win.

Crisler batted 2-for-3, with three RBIs. Richardson went 2-for-3, with two RBIs. Hitt and Jarrett each went 2-for-5.
