WAUSAU – The Marshfield baseball team scored five runs in the final two innings to come from behind and defeat Wausau East 13-10 to pick up its first Wisconsin Valley Conference win of the season Tuesday at East High School.


Marshfield led 8-4 after scoring six times in the top of the fifth inning only to see East respond with six runs of its own to regain the lead at 10-8.


The Tigers plated three runs in the top of the sixth with the help of two Wausau East errors, and added two more in the seventh as Bennett Lang scored on a double steal and Cole Halvorsen knocked in a run with a double.
