Missouri State baseball tops Valparaiso to advance to second day of MVC Tournament

Missouri State lives to play at least two more games.

The Bears won their fourth consecutive game against Valparaiso with a 7-1 victory over the Crusaders on Tuesday afternoon in the play-in round of the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament in Normal, Illinois. A loss would have ended the Bears' season.

Missouri State now advances to the double-elimination portion of the tournament. The Bears will play No. 1 seed Dallas Baptist at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
