NORFOLK, Va. -- Will Morgan launched a walk-off home run into the night sky in the 10th inning and Old Dominion defeated Marshall, 6-5, on Friday night in game one of the series at the Bud Metheny Complex.

Morgan, who graduates from ODU this weekend, belted a 1-1 fastball over the scoreboard in right center. It was the fourth walk-off win of the season for Old Dominion (30-18, 12-13). 

That came after Marshall (24-24, 11-13) forced extra innings with a three-run rally in the ninth inning.

Tomorrow's game has been moved up to a 1 p.m. ET start. 

ODU left-hander Jason Hartline (0-2, 4.37 ERA) is set to start against the Herd's righty Wade Martin (0-2, 7.24 ERA).
