The Maroon Team will eat steak after coming back from a 2-0 Steak ‘n’ Beans Series deficit. Gold won the first two games of the Golden Gopher baseball team’s intrasquad series at Siebert Field before Maroon took the final three.

Maroon took an early 3-0 lead in Game 4 on Friday, but Gold erased that lead and went up 5-3. Maroon tied it up in the seventh after Jake Bergren (2-for-3) hit a triple and Michael Handel hit him in. Connor Schaefbauer put Maroon ahead, 6-5, for good with an RBI single later in the inning. Toby Anderson pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings to earn the win. Dan Motl and Tyler Hanson each had two hits for the Gold Team.

The deciding game of the series took place on Saturday. Maroon won by a score of 2-1. A solo homerun by Handel gave the team its first run. The game was tied at one when Maroon came to bat in the bottom of the seventh. With two outs, Alex LaShomb reached base on an error, and Schaefbauer pinch ran. Bobby Juan hit him over to third. Schaefbauer scored the winning run when Austin Athmann beat out a throw to first. Ben Meyer was the winning pitcher with five strikeouts in four shutout innings.

Saturday’s game concluded Minnesota’s full-team practice for the fall. Full-team practices will start up again after the semester break, and Minnesota’s first game will be against Northern Illinois in Glendale, Ariz., on Feb. 14.
