LAKELAND, Fla. — Mississippi College won two elimination games Monday at the rain-soaked NCAA Division II South Regional, beating Albany State and Nova Southeastern to stay alive.

The Choctaws (35-16) beat Albany State 6-3 in their first game of the day. The contest was originally scheduled for Friday and then postponed by rain and poor field conditions for three days.

The Choctaws then turned around and beat Nova Southeastern 5-3. Billy Cameron hit an RBI double, while Blaine Crim hit a two-run home run and scored twice.
