GREENVILLE, Ill. -- The baseball team recorded their seventh straight win and 11th in 12 games with a come-from-behind 10-9 win over Principia on Thursday.

Greenville jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first with an RBI single from Travis Ralls, a two-run single by Klaiton Wolff, and an RBI single from Max Gabriel.

Principia got a run back in the top of the second, but Greenville answered when Adam Lamb scored on an error.

Principia tightened the game to 5-3 in the top of the fourth, but Ralls posted a sacrifice fly and Wolff delivered another run-scoring single to make the game 7-3.

Greenville gave up the lead as Principia got five runs over the fifth and sixth innings, but Greenville immediately tied the game again with a homer from Ralls and an RBI single by Hodges.

With the score tied 9-9, Gabriel plated Shane Olmsted for the winning run with a line drive to right field that the outfielder dropped.

Greenville's Logan Murphy picked up the win with three scoreless innings of relief to close the game.

Austin Marsh was Greenville's starting pitcher and permitted five runs in five innings.

The Panthers (20-12, 10-4 SLIAC) travel to Principia for a doubleheader on Saturday.
