But just as they had done three previous times, the Red Raiders battled back to even up the game in the sixth inning with a two-out run scoring single. But Northwestern failed to cash in with two runners on in the top of the seventh, setting the stage for Interrante’s late-inning heroics.
Geeting led off the inning with a walk and eventually advanced to third base. With one out, Interrante slapped a pitch into right field, giving the Saints their first walk-off win of the year.
Ashford was in control from the opening pitch of Game 2, scoring one run in the first, three in the second and two more in the third inning with six different players recording RBIs. It was more than enough support for Roth, who was dominant in the circle, tossing five innings of no-hit ball to open the game.
