NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Belmont (8-2) rallied for three runs in the seventh inning to defeat Illinois State (2-5), 5-3, on a cold, snowy afternoon Friday in Nashville. The Redbirds have now dropped five straight.

Three Redbirds collected two hits and Zac Johnson drove in a pair of runs, as Illinois State out-hit Belmont, 10-6. Drew Ferguson paced the Bruins with two hits and two RBI, and Judah Akers collected a game-tying solo home run for Belmont.

Will Headean (0-2) made his first collegiate start and was handed the loss, allowing five earned runs in 6.1 innings. Headean struck out five, walked three and allowed four hits. At one point, he retired eight-consecutive Bruins. Jessie Snodgrass (1-0) earned the victory in relief, working two innings of one-run ball. He struck out two and allowed three hits. Scott Moses (1) collected the save in the ninth.

Illinois State took an early lead, scoring twice in the top of the third inning. With two outs and the bases empty, Chad Hinshaw and Brett Kaycollected consecutive singles. They then advanced on a double-steal and scored on Johnson’s two-run single to right field. It was the only runs allowed by Belmont starter Chase Brookshire, who pitched six innings, struck out six and walked one. He left with a no-decision.
