Ball State's baseball team suffered a 1-0 loss in the first of a three game series at Miami University Friday night in Oxford, Ohio.

Scott Baker pitched his third straight complete game and suffered his first loss of the season to fall to 8-1 on the year.  Baker ranks second in the nation with eight pitching wins in 2013.  He allowed only one earned run on only five hits, while striking out eight in eight innings pitched.

The RedHawks scored their only run of the game in the fifth inning when a leadoff single advanced to third after a pair of balks, and a grounder to second base scored the sole run of the contest.

Ball State stranded six runners on base for the game, including three in the top of the ninth.  Wes Winkle started the inning with a single, and was out at second when Blake Beemer reached on a fielder's choice.  Sean Godfrey singled and advanced Beemer to second with one out.  After a fly out, Billy Wellman reached on a fielding error by the shortstop to load the bases, but the game ended with a fielder's choice and three runners left on base.

Winkle was 3-for-4 on the day, while Godfrey, Cody Campbell, Kevin Schlotter and Ryan Spaulding tallied one hit apiece.

Ball State falls to 16-18 overall and 5-8 in the Mid-American Conference with the loss, while Miami University improved to 17-18 and 8-5.  The teams will meet Saturday at 3 p.m. and again Sunday at 1 p.m. in the three-game league series.
