JACKSONVILLE, Ill. -- The Grinnell College baseball team rallied for two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning Sunday to post a 5-4 nonconference victory over Lawrence University.
Lawrence had rallied for three runs in the top of the eighth to grab a 4-3 lead before Grinnell countered with a pair in the bottom half of the inning.
Brad Weaver's two-run double gave Grinnell the 5-4 lead in the bottom of the eighth, but Lawrence started the ninth with a triple from Zemrak. Grinnell pitcher Ben Binversie then struck out the next two hitters and a flyout to end the game and pick up the win.
Lawrence started its eighth-inning rally with a Nolan Spencer walk, and Klar followed with a homer to tie the game at 3-3. Holliday then launched a one-out solo homer to give Lawrence a 4-3 edge.
