Eastern (5-12, 2-5 OVC) got on the board in the fourth inning. A sacrifice fly by Bryan Soloman made it 6-1 in favor of the visitors.

Belmont added a run in the fifth and the sixth innings, including an RBI single to center by Akers. The Bruins took advantage of five walks in the eighth, including three with the bases loaded, to add six more to their total.

Austin Grisham went 2-for-4 for EKU.  Akers finished 4-for-5 with two runs and five RBIs for the Bruins. Josh Davis went 1-for-1 but scored four times with the help of four walks.

Due to the arrival of inclement weather on Sunday, the teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday beginning at noon.
