While Blair's been solid all year, the Herd (13-17 overall, 3-2 Conference USA) struggled throughout much of the season and found itself down nine runs early in Friday's game before an offensive explosion fueled a rally and a win.
Now, after two wins in a row over the Cougars (23-9, 5-3), spirits seem to be at an all-time high.
"I knew we were going to play our baseball, we just needed some more consistency," Waggoner said. "We've got some momentum going and it's just good to see our guys playing to our capability.
"It's big, especially against a ranked team that we're able to do this. We've got some tough teams coming up, so we need to get on a roll and start playing our best baseball."
"We're playing great baseball right now," Blair said. "Offensively, defensively, and we're pitching well. We've got to come out [today] and try to get a series sweep."
Aaron Bossi scored center fielder Isaac Ballou in the second inning to start the scoring for the Herd. Ballou singled and walked on Saturday, upping his streak of reaching base safely to 21 games.
Dundon and Stafford each went 2 for 4 for Marshall.
Righty Michael Taylor (3-2, 2.28 ERA) will take the ball for the Thundering Herd in today's series finale. First pitch is scheduled for 10 a.m.
