murray baseball 300MURRAY, Ky. (3/11/13) – Morehead State rallied from a three-run deficit in the bottom of the ninth inning to push across four runs and walk off with the series finale, 10-9, Sunday afternoon at Legacy Field.
 
The Eagles (7-9, 2-1 OVC) started the inning with a hit batter and a walk.  Taylor Pickens followed with an RBI single just inside the bag at third.  After a flyout, Kane Sweeney singled to right to load the bases.  Alan Mocahbee drew a bases-loaded walk before Chase Greenwell tied the game with a single into the hole at short.  Nick Duff ended the game when he delivered a sacrifice fly to left field.
 
The Breds (6-9, 1-2 OVC) got on the board first in the second inning as Dylan Wheeler and Taylor Mathews drew walks.  After a successful double steal, Rick Linton sliced a two-run double just inside the right-field line.  Two batters later, Ty Stetson traded places with Linton by lining a ball to left field that got caught up in the wind and went over the outstretched glove of the left fielder.  
 
The Eagles tied the game with a two-out rally in the third as an infield single and liner to right center put runners on the corners.  Mocahbee followed with a three-run home run to left field.
 
The fifth inning was the Breds turn to get on the board with two outs.  Brandon Eggenschwiler started the rally with a double into the gap in left center.  Mike Kozlowski followed with a run-producing double to right center, and Wheeler closed out the scoring with a double of his own over the head of the left fielder.
 
The lead did not last long as the Eagles responded in the home-half of the inning with a walk, hit by pitch and a wild pitch to put runners on second and third with no outs.  Sweeney delivered a two-run triple off the fence in left center, before scoring on a Greenwell single to left center.
 
MUR had an answer in the eighth inning as Kozlowski drew a leadoff walk and scored when Wheeler doubled into the left-field corner.  Noah Zipko followed with a bunt base hit to put runners on the corners.  Linton put down a bunt that the pitcher threw to home to get the runner from third, who had stopped and retreated.  With the bases loaded and two outs, Stetson ripped a single into right field to give MUR the 7-6 lead.
 
The Breds added a pair of runs in the ninth with Eggenschwiler starting the inning with a single to center.  Kozlowski followed with a grounder to third that was dropped by the second baseman on the attempt to get Eggenschwiler.  After a Wheeler sacrifice bunt, Zipko plated both runners with a single through the left side.
 
Will Handlin (1-3) took the loss after allowing four runs on four hits over 2.2 innings.  Matt Duncan (1-2) earned the victory after retiring both hitters he faced in the top of the ninth.
 
Wheeler paced the offense by going 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs and two runs scored.  Stetson and Zipko each went 2-for-5 with two RBIs.
 
The Breds return to action Tuesday afternoon as they open a two-game series with Northern Illinois at Reagan Field.  First pitch is set for 2 p.m. and can be seen live on the OVC Digital Network.
