Saturday, the Lions came up short with a three-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning, when East Mississippi got a two-run triple from former Louisville standout Derian Dotson. Josh Buckley also had an RBI single in the inning for the Lions, who trailed 6-5 before giving up four runs in the top of the seventh.
