Despite scoring eight runs in the fourth inning, the Ball State baseball team suffered a 10-9 home loss to Northern Kentucky Wednesday afternoon.

The Cardinals took an 8-1 lead into the fifth inning, but the Norse responded with two runs in the fifth and six in the sixth to take a 9-8 advantage.  Each team would score again in the eighth frame, but Northern Kentucky held on for the 10-9 victory.

With the loss, Ball State falls to 12-13 overall, while Northern Kentucky improved to 4-24 on the year.

Billy Wellman led all Ball State hitters with a 2-for-5 performance with three runs-batted-in and one run scored.  Cody Campbell was 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored, while Jarrett James was 2-for-2 with one RBI and one run scored.

Wellman recorded two doubles in the contest to bring his season total to eight, while Campbell also hit his eighth double of the year.

Clay Manering started the game for the Cardinals and pitched 1.2 innings, but walked three.  Ball State used five relievers in the game and Tyler Jordan was the pitcher of record in the contest and suffered the loss to fall to 1-4 on the year. 

The Cardinals will return to Mid-American Conference action with a three game series set at Western Michigan Friday through Sunday.  The teams will play at 3 p.m. Friday, and 1 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
