Ball State’s baseball team had its series with Kentucky evened at 1-1 after the Wildcats handed the Cardinals a 24-1 loss Saturday afternoon.

With the loss to the nation’s 22nd-ranked team, Ball State falls to 10-4 on the season, while Kentucky improved to 12-3.

The final game of the series is scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday in Lexington, Ky.

Kentucky scored early and often to put the victory in the books a day after the Cardinals claimed a come-from-behind 10-8 extra inning win in the series opener.

Scott Baker took the loss on the mound after lasting two innings, allowing eight hits and six earned runs, while striking out one of the 15 batters he faced.

The Wildcats managed six runs in the second, four in the fourth, sixth in the fifth and four in the sixth as they rallied for 24 runs on 19 hits and three Ball State errors.  The Cardinals scored their lone run in the third inning and managed the single run on four hits and one UK error on the day.

Elbert Devarie managed a 2-for-4 performance from the plate, while Cole Griesinger and Seth Vautaw added one hit apiece. 

Ball State scored its lone run after Sam Tidaback reached on a fielder’s choice and Devarie’s single advanced him to second.  Tidaback advanced to third after Alex Call reached on a fielder’s choice and when Sean Godfrey reached on a fielding error by UK, Tidaback scored the Cardinals’ lone run.
