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.

The Redhawks entered play tied for first in the OVC with Austin Peay but fell percentage points behind the Governors, who are 7-4 in league play and do not have a conference series this weekend.

Southeast and JSU conclude their three-game series at 1 p.m. Saturday.
