NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Belmont pitching shut out Morehead State, 2-0, in conference action Thursday at Rose Park. The Bruins improve to 18-6 on the season and 6-1 in the OVC.
In the bottom of the sixth, the Bruins loaded the bases with singles from Jared Breen (Marietta, Ga.) and Drew Turner (Shelbyville, Tenn.), plus a walk to Matt Beaty (Dresden, Tenn.), but were unable to get the insurance run across the plate.
The insurance did come in the bottom of the eighth. Josh Davis walked, stole second and scored on Beaty's RBI single up the middle.
The Bruins return to the field tomorrow for game two of the series with Morehead State at 3:00pm.
