Racers baseb2 300MURRAY, Ky. (3/12/14) — Tuesday was not the day for Murray State as they committed six errors in helping Arkansas State to a 27-7 victory at Reagan Field.

The Red Wolves (8-8) took advantage of three errors over the first two innings to push across eight runs. They would add five more runs in the third to break the game wide open.

The Breds (7-7) got on the board in the first inning as Ty Stetson extended his streak of reaching safely to 42-straight games with a double to right field. With two outs, Tyler Lawrence drove in Stetson with a single through the left side.

MSU scored again in the fourth inning as Matthew Johnson was hit by a pitch and Clay Fuson singled to left center. Taylor Mathews then stepped in and delivered a three-run home run to left center, the first of his career.

The sixth inning saw the Breds push across three more runs with only one hit. The first three hitters walked to load the bases before a wild pitch pushed across a run. Anthony Bayus then singled home the second run, and a passed ball allowed the third run of the inning to score.

Kyle Cornett (0-1) took the loss after allowing eight runs, one earned, on three hits and two walks over 1.1 innings. Cody Woodhouse (1-0) was credited with the victory after allowing one hit in 1.1 innings of relief.

The Breds offense collected 10 hits, with Stetson, Bayus, Lawrence and Fuson each having two hits apiece.

MSU returns to the diamond Friday evening as they open a three-game series at UT Martin.

First pitch is set for 6 p.m.
