HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The Marshall University Baseball team (16-32) defeated the Ohio Bobcats (14-29) 7-4 on Wednesday night at Jack Cook Field.

“We have a few big weeks left in the season and we are on a mission,” Herd Baseball head coach Greg Beals said after the win. “I liked today’s win. I pressed a lot of buttons, used a lot of players.”

Jack Flint had a big day at the plate going 1-for-2 with a home run, three runs scored, two RBI and a pair of walks. Jac Smith brought home a career-high three RBI and collected the first double of his career.

“It was amazing,” Firestone said of his performance. “It was good to meet them again. I played them in my last game in the MAC. I kind of knew how they were going to pitch me after seeing them a few times. I was able to relax and have fun tonight.” “

On the hill, Chad Heiner started 5.1 innings and gave up three runs on five hits and four walks. Out of the bullpen, Charlie Krebs, Bauer Burkart, Peyton Schofield And Cole Agemy combined to throw the last 3.2 frames without giving up a hit. Schofield earned his first win of the season and Agemy picked up his first save.

Firestone’s third home run of the season gave MU its first run in the bottom of the fourth inning, as he scored the team’s second run in the sixth on a Jac Smith sacrifice bunt.

Marshall’s offense exploded for four runs in the seventh. Caden Kaiser went home on a bases-loaded walk by Firestone, a Tre Hondras brought home AJ Havrilla with an RBI single and a double by Smith Elijah Vogelsong and Firestone to make it 6-3.

The Herd added an insurance run in the eighth when Kaiser stole home plate.


Marshall heads to Harrisonburg, Va., for a three-game series at James Madison beginning Friday at 6 p.m.
