Scenes from Marshall's Baseball Win Over Eastern Kentucky
EKU took the early lead in the first inning, after leadoff hitter Kyle Nowlin singled, advanced on a fly ball, and scored on a balk from Marshall starter Chase Boster (Stafford, Va.) to give the Colonels the early advantage.
The Herd responded in the bottom of the inning, when Bird singled to ignite the Marshall bats. Bird then went to second on a bunt single from shortstop Leon before EKU errors allowed Bird to take third and then score. Leon took second and then third on the play.
The next play scored Leon after second baseman Dundon singled to third and gave Marshall the 2-1 lead.
Catcher Matt Reed (Purcellville, Va.) added an insurance run when he led off the fifth inning with a double and scored on back-to-back sacrifice bunts.
Marshall added its final two runs of the game in the eighth, when Dundon scored on a single from Diffenderfer and designated hitter Chase Vogelbach(Ft. Myers, Fla.) scored on an groundout from Reed.
The Colonels scored in the sixth and seventh to trim the lead and that allowed redshirt senior Ryan Hopkins (Sardinia, Ohio) to grab his second save of the season. The righty needs just one more to enter Marshall's all-time saves list.
Marshall is now 12-18 on the season and returns to action Wednesday when the Herd hosts Ohio at the Kennedy Center. First pitch scheduled for 3 p.m.
