LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State baseball team (9-10) came back from a 5-0 deficit to hammer Alabama A&M (2-18) 20-6 in seven innings at Presley Askew Field Friday, March 15, 2013.
The Bulldogs jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the top of the first inning before senior right-hander Michael Ormseth settled down and allowed just one more run. Ormseth worked 6.0 innings and struck out eight batters to move to 2-2 on the year. He gave up six hits in the first, but redeemed himself as he gave up just one hit after that.
