But there was more to come. Much more.

CM tied it 5-5 with a run in the top of the fourth. The Redbirds countered with three runs of their own the bottom of the inning to go ahead 8-5. Alton added a run in the fifth to make it 9-5

The craziness continued in the sixth inning. The Eagles came up with four runs to tie it 9-9.

But back came the Redbirds - again - with a single run in the bottom of the sixth to go ahead 10-9.

After the Eagles tied it at 10-10 in the top of the seventh, the Redbirds finally ended the marathon with a single run in the bottom of the eighth.

Alton’s Michael Reeder had three hits, including a double, scored three runs and had a pair of RBIs.

The Redbirds had four players with two hits each. Jackson brooks was 2-for-5 with a double and two RBIs, Dylan Lahue went 2-for-5 with an RBI, Riley Phillips was 2-for-4 with a run scored and Robby Taul was 2-for-4 with two doubles and a pair of RBIs.

CM is 3-3 and Alton is 2-4.
