Marshall VFW Orange scored three runs in the seventh inning to come from behind Monday night in Sacred Heart.
After falling behind 4-3 in the fourth inning, Marshall Orange scrapped together enough hits in the seventh to bring home three runs and the eventual 6-3 win over Sacred Heart.
Starter Derek Rasmussen, who pitched the entire game, prevented a Sacred Heart rally before it ever started. Rasmussen only allowed four runs despite giving up seven hits and hitting three batters. He also added two strikeouts.
Marshall had already erased two earlier deficits in the game. A two-run second inning gave Orange a 2-1 lead. After giving up two runs to Sacred Heart in the bottom half of the second, Marshall tied the game at three with one run in the third inning.
Brad Bahlmann set the tone for the Marshall batters, accounting for three of the team's nine hits. Bahlmann finished the game 3-for-4 with three runs scored. Collin Reilly added another hit for Marshall, finishing 1-for-3, but drove in two runs and scored once. Quinton Johnson went 2-for-3 for Marshall. Neither Marshall nor Sacred Heart had an extra-base hit.
The win moves Marshall Orange to 10-9 on the season and 6-5 in league play. Marshall does not play again until July 11, when Orange faces Brookings at 7 p.m. at Southwest Minnesota State's Alumni Field.
