Southeast Missouri State and Jacksonville State split Friday's Ohio Valley Conference doubleheader.
The Redhawks took the opener 9-8 and the Gamecocks claimed the seven-inning nightcap 5-2, breaking Southeast's eight-game winning streak.
Southeast is 24-15 overall and 8-5 in OVC play while JSU is 25-14 and 8-6.
