A nine-run rally in the bottom of the fifth inning helped Northeastern A&M breeze to a 15-3 victory over Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College Wednesday at Homa Thomas Field.

The nine runs is the most in an inning so far this season for the Golden Norsemen (10-3).

"We got some offensive momentum and it carried over," Norse coach Roger Ward said. "We needed to bounce back like that so we could get some confidence back."

The Norsemen had won their first nine games then dropped three of four during a trip to Raymond, Miss. on Sunday and Monday.

Coffeyville got a run in the top of the fourth inning to narrow NEO's lead to 4-3.

However the Norsemen sent 13 batters to the plate during the fifth-inning burst that included a three-run homer by Kevin Meyers.

Pete Hoyt delivered a two-run single, Mark Podlas doubled home a run and Cody Riley had an RBI single.

The Norsemen also picked up runs on bases-loaded walks to Joshua Schnable and Nick Shiplett.

NEO scratched out single runs in the seventh and eighth frames.

Podlas headed up an 18-hit Norse attack by going 4-for-5 with a triple and two doubles. He scored all four times and drove in two runs.

Riley was 3-for-3 with an RBI.

Samuel Dominguez, Meyers, Calvin Ellis, Dom Samyn and Hoyt had two hits apiece.

Both of Meyers' hits were home runs. He also had a two-run shot in the first inning. He drove in six runs in the game.

Keaton Hernandez worked five innings to get the win for the Norsemen. He struck out seven and walked one while allowing five hits and three runs.

Curt Copeland, Rafael Diaz, Shawn Reid and Dalton Dowling each worked an inning for NEO.

Luke Slagle had two hits for the Red Ravens.

NEO is idle until Sunday, when it hosts Maple Woods Community College of Kansas City, Mo., in a 1 p.m. double-header.
