Baseball Bangs Out Series-Opening Win

TERRE HAUTE, IN – After lightning delayed the start of the final regular-season series of the year, Bradley (31-16, 11-8 MVC) brought the thunder Thursday night, rallying for a 9-5 win at Indiana State (34-15, 11-8 MVC) at Bob Warn Field.

Steadied by reliever Cole Cook's work on the mound and Keaton Rice's efforts at the plate, Bradley dealt the host Sycamores just their second home loss in 15 games at Bob Warn Field this season. The Braves also moved into a tie for third place in the Missouri Valley Conference standings with the Sycamores, one game behind second-place Dallas Baptist and two back of league-leading Illinois State with two games to play.
