Ball State's baseball team split its doubleheader at Kent State Saturday, winning the second game 4-3 after suffering an 11-5 loss in game one.

Ball State evened its record at 12-12 on the season and is now 2-4 in the Mid-American Conference.  Kent State improved to 10-14 overall and 4-2 in league play.

The Cardinals fell behind 2-1 in the first inning, but rallied for two runs in the fourth and one run in the sixth to claim the victory.

Scott Baker earned the win for Ball State after pitching five innings, allowing two earned runs and striking out seven batters.  With the win, Baker improved to 6-0 on the season.

Billy Wellman led the Cardinals with a 2-for-4 performance and one run scored.  Tyler Curry was 1-for-3 with three runs-batted-in.  Curry and Kevin Schlotter each doubled in game two for the Cardinals, while Beemer recorded a triple and was 1-for-4 on the day with one run scored.

In the first game, Kent State took an early 3-0 lead in the first inning, but the Cardinals battled to close the gap to 5-3 after five frames.  A four-run seventh inning by the Golden Flashes helped them to the victory, despite a two run ninth inning by Ball State.

Sean Godfrey was 2-for-5 in game one, including his third homerun of the game, three runs-batted-in and one run scored.  Elbert DeVarie was 2-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored.

Jon Cisna started the game on the mound for the Cardinals and suffered the loss after pitching two innings and allowing four earned runs.
