Comeback effort leads to Senior Day win for U-Mary baseball

After falling behind 4-2 on Saturday afternoon, U-Mary baseball rattled off four unanswered runs to earn a 6-4 win against Southwest Minnesota State on Senior Day.

The Marauders built a 2-0 after the first inning but ran into trouble in the third. The Mustangs loaded the bases and used several base hits and a wild pitch to put up four runs in the frame.

U-Mary answered in the bottom of the third. A check swing by Chris Scott found the outfield grass to bring in a run to make it 4-3, and an errant throw by SMSU on a U-Mary steal allowed the tying run to score.

U-Mary kept the offense going in the fourth. With the game tied and a runner on third, Connor Doll hit a high chopper to third and legged out an infield single, which allowed the go-ahead run to score. Darius Barlas was the next man to the plate, and the U-Mary shortstop promptly singled to right, giving U-Mary a 6-4 lead that they would not relinquish.

The Marauders next visit St. Cloud State for a doubleheader on May 1.
