BOX SCORE

Despite entering the seventh inning with a 2-0 lead, the Ball State baseball team suffered a 6-2 loss at Kent State in the first game of a three-game series.

With the loss, Ball State falls to 11-11 overall and 1-3 in the Mid-American Conference.  Kent State improved to 9-14 overall and 3-1 in league play.

The Cardinals jumped out to a 1-0 lead after a Blake Beemer double down the leftfield line scored Elbert Devarie in the top of the third.

Ball State then added a run in the top of the fifth to take a 2-0 lead over the Golden Flashes. Devarie singled and advanced Ryan Spaulding to third after Spaulding opened the inning with a walk.  Beemer singled and scored Spaulding to give the Cardinals the 2-0 advantage.

Kent State tallied six runs in the bottom of the seventh after starting pitcher Chris Marangon got the first two hitters out in the inning. 

Marangon pitched 6.2 innings, allowing eight hits and two earned runs.  He suffered the loss to even his record at 1-1 on the season.  Tyler Jordan and Miles Moeller came on in relief to finish the game for the Cardinals.

Beemer was 2-for-4 on the day with two runs-batted-in, while Devarie was 2-for-3 with one run scored.

Ball State and Kent State will play a doubleheader Saturday due to impending weather conditions forecast for Sunday in Kent, Ohio.  The twinbill will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday.
