LANSING | T.F. South was infected with the get-on-base bug Monday at Bill Anderson Field.

The Rebels put seven consecutive men on base in a six-run, two-out rally that fueled a 9-7 win over South Suburban Conference rival Oak Forest.

"We were in a little bit of a funk (hitting lately)," manager Matt Tiffy said. "We know that Oak Forest is a good team and we weren't going to take them for granted."

The Bengals made two errors and hit pitcher Justin Pasko in that frame, which helped turn on the faucet of Rebels baserunners.

"We took advantage, definitely," Alex Schell said. "When we see teams sink below our level, we like to take advantage and put the dagger in right there and that's what we did."

Schell did his part, driving in two with a single in the fourth inning. He also drove in a run with a single in the first inning.

"I've been hitting good lately, but we needed something to get a few more runs just to feel comfortable," Schell said. "Everybody just went up there and was comfortable."

South (8-7, 5-4) hasn't played a game or had much of a chance to practice outside since last Tuesday due to weather. Tiffy used the opportunity to get his team some extra time in the batting cage and it seemed to pay off.

Pasko and Dan Lindich gave up seven runs, but clamped down during key situations. The Bengals left seven runners on base between the fourth and sixth innings.

The two teams will play again today in Oak Forest.

"It's a big win and our kids are riding high," Tiffy said. "We're looking for good things."
