WKU baseball swept by Marshall

The Western Kentucky baseball team is in its longest losing streak of the year.

The Hilltoppers fell to Marshall 8-4 on Sunday at Nick Denes Field. It capped off a series swept for the Thundering Herd and gave WKU its ninth consecutive loss.

WKU (13-26 overall, 4-14 Conference USA) previously had an eight-game losing streak earlier this season. The Hilltoppers are tied with Rice and FIU at the bottom of the C-USA standings.

After a close 2-1 loss in Friday's series opener against Marshall (19-21-1, 8-10), the next two games weren't as close. WKU lost 8-1 to the Herd on Saturday, before Sunday's 8-4 decision.
