The Bulls pulled off another come-from-behind victory on Tuesday, defeating Owensboro 6-4 at VFW Stadium.
"Once again we're a comeback team," said Sikeston coach Jamie Puckett. "Our guys seem to rise to the occasion when they are against a wall. They will come out swinging and they won't go down without a fight."
It was a big victory for the team heading into a five-game road trip.
"The guys finally realized, 'hey, we've got to put some runs on the board,'" said Sikeston coach Jamie Puckett. "Our pitchers were doing a great job of keeping us in the game. A couple hits kind of sparks everything. The guys get excited and they want to be a part of it. As one goes, we all go."
Sikeston -- which trailed Farmington on Saturday 6-0 before rallying to win 9-8 -- fell behind 4-0 on Tuesday to Owensboro.
But the Bulls (8-7) scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth and two more in the bottom of the seventh to pull out the victory.
Owensboro took the lead with a four-run fifth highlighted by a three-run home run over the right field fence by Will Devick.
It was the only big mistake Sikeston hurler Robert Anders made.
The right-hander threw seven innings in picking up the win. He allowed four runs off five hits with four strikeouts and five walks.
"He pitched a great game," said Puckett of Anders. "He used his defense well and kept hitters off balance. It's a short porch in right field and that's normally a routine pop fly."
Jeremy Brinkmeyer threw one scoreless inning in the eighth. Todd Otto pitched a scoreless ninth to record the save.
Sikeston cut the Owensboro lead to 4-2 in the bottom of the sixth. Brett Miller and Troy Sitton each had RBI-singles.
Sikeston's Brooks Royer tied the game with a two-run single down the third base line.
Mason Mosby had a fielder's choice-RBI to give the Bulls a 5-4 lead.
Jared Hughes added a sacrifice fly to push the lead to 6-4.
Sikeston's offensive leaders were: Derrick Washington (2 BB, sacrifice bunt, run), Royer (1-2, 2 RBIs), Mosby (1-4, run, RBI), Miller (1-3, RBI, run), Hughes (1-3, sac-fly RBI), Sitton (1-4, RBI), Scott Hudgins (1-4), Chase Kittinger (0-3, BB, run) and Mike Sadler (1-2, HBP, BB, run).
Sikeston will play three games at Tradewater Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The Bulls will then play a doubleheader against Farmington on Sunday.
Sikeston will return home on Wednesday for a doubleheader against the Fulton Railroaders starting at 5:30 p.m.
