Eagles best Thundering Herd in midweek matchup

Marshall shortstop Elvis Peralta (7) watches as Ohio center fielder Michael Richardson slides into second base during the teams’ midweek matchup at the Kennedy Center Field, April 16, 2019.

A bases-loaded walk in the top of the eighth inning sent visiting Morehead State past the Marshall baseball team Tuesday afternoon, 5-4, at the Kennedy Center Field in Huntington.

Morehead State took an early 3-0 lead with a trio of runs in the third inning. Zach Boyd reached on a bunt single to begin the inning and scored on Reid Leonard’s double down the right field line. Connor Pauly reached on another bunt single and Jake Hammon reached on catcher’s interference, which allowed Leonard to score.
