Ball State's baseball team suffered a 4-3 loss at Campbell Wednesday to fall to 10-7 on the season.

Ball State got on the board first when Sean Godfrey hit a solo home run over the left field fence to give the Cardinals a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning.  The HR was the third of the season for Godfrey.

After giving up four runs in the bottom of the fourth, Ball State answered back with two runs in the seventh to narrow Campbell’s lead to 4-3. 

With one out in the seventh, Jarrett Rindfleish doubled to left field, followed by Ryan Spaulding’s first home run of the year to close the gap on the Camels.

But that is all the offense could get for the Cardinals, and Campbell finished out the victory.

Scott Baker started the game on the mound for Ball State and lasted two innings, giving up no runs and striking out one.  Jacob Brewer, B.J. Butler and Tyler Jordan came on in relief.  Butler suffered the loss after giving up three runs in his one inning.  T.J. Weir pitched the final 1.2 innings and allowed only one hit and no runs.  Butler falls to 0-1 on the season.

Spaulding went 2-for-3 from the plate with two runs-batted-in and one run scored.  Godfrey managed a 1-for-4 performance with the one RBI and one run scored.  Kennedy and Rindfleish each had one hit in four at-bats for the Cardinals.  Alex Call was 2-for-5 with a double for Ball State.

The Cardinals will play IPFW Friday and Saturday in a pair of double headers.  Ball State will host IPFW at the USA Baseball Training Complex in Cary, N.C., and then play the Mastodons in two games at Campbell on Saturday.
