Murphysboro scored two runs in the second inning on three hits and one Harrisburg miscue.

The Bulldogs only had one other hit on the day after Jones', while Murphysboro plated three more runs in the fifth inning on three hits and two Harrisburg errors.
Harrisburg is slated to play at Massac County today in conference action and will host Herrrin on Thursday.
