Jemison pounded out five home runs in two games Monday to open its baseball season with wins over Jeff Davis, 12-5, and Calera, 11-1.

Alex Campbell accounted for three of those home runs—he hit a two-run homer and a solo homer in the first game and another solo homer in the second game—and also pitched a complete game against Calera.

Campbell was also backed against Calera by Jackson Mims’ grand slam in the first inning.

Kyle Dennis hit a three-run dinger in the third inning, and Scott Clements went 2-for-3 at the plate with a run-scoring double.

Clements was 4-for-5 in the first game, and Jacob Bass was 3-for-4.

Zak Kaylor and Chase McCary combined on the mound to lead JHS to a win in the first game.
