Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- It's been a wild weekend at Newman Outdoor Field, the Bison won the first 3 games of the series all on the final at-bat of the game.

Hoping for some Sunday luck in their hunt for a sweep of the rival Jackrabbits.

Bison starter Zach Wentz had to work out of some tough spots early, bases loaded in the third. The ball is drilled to Nick Colwell at first, he touches the base and throws home, to get the out at the plate. The alert play keeps the game scoreless.

We go to the 7th tied at 1. Kyle Kleinendorst sends it to the outfield,

and the ball finds some open grass. Tyler Steen scores for a 2-1 Bison lead.

NDSU picks up a pair of insurance runs in the 8th, 2-down and a full count for Wes Satzinger, what does he do? How about a triple to the fence! Nick Colwell touches home to make it 3-1 NDSU.

The Bison pick up the sweep and their 6th win in league play on a weekend full of late game drama.

Satzinger says, "We know that there might be sometimes where everything isn't going smoothly. But, we're mentally tough enough to get through those hard times and find a way to win. And I think that's something this team has been missing the last couple of years. We finally started

figuring that out and that makes a huge difference. This series could have easily been 2-2 or 3-1 them. But, instead it was 4-0 are way because we found ways to win. I think that's big for our mindset going forward."
