Marshall got to Hawkins for one more run in the 6th, a solo home run, but still trailed 10-2. Keown threw out another batter from 2nd and Yockey gunned down a batter from shortstop to 1st.
The Rams got that run back in the 7th. With one out, Miller was hit by a pitch and Standerfer doubled him home.
Leading 11-2 in the top of the 7th, the Rams put in a reliever for Hawkins. The experiment didn’t work and Marshall scored four runs on three walks on the first reliever and four singles on the final reliever. But the rally was still too little too late.
Shelbyville (3-0) is scheduled to play at Arthur on Monday.
