Five-Run Seventh Propels Herd to 6-1 Victory Over Ohio
The Marshall baseball team produced five runs in the seventh inning to overcome a one-run deficit and defeat the Ohio Bobcats 6-1 Tuesday at Bob Wren Stadium.
Marshall (14-24, 4-8 Conference USA) played two and a half innings of ball against Ohio (9-28, 5-10 Mid-American Conference) last week, but rain moving through the area forced an early cancellation.
The Thundering Herd boasts two men batting over the .300 mark currently. Together, sophomore Andrew Dundon (.314) and senior Isaac Ballou (.308) have combined for 88 hits along with 44 runs and 28 RBI’s in 38 games.
Over the previous weekend, Ohio, like Marshall, won Friday’s opener against Northern Illinois but fell in games two and three of the series. In Sunday’s loss, junior right fielder Scott White went a perfect 3-for-3 with a walk at the dish. White is a .273 hitter on the season and ranks fourth on the team in overall average.
First baseman Jake Madsen leads the Ohio club at .325 and ranks 10th in the MAC in overall average. The sophomore also has 19 runs, 27 RBI’s, and a pair of homers on the season.
Ohio is scheduled to play regional rival Morehead State Tuesday evening at 4 p.m. in Athens, Ohio.
