MOREHEAD, Ky. – Belmont Baseball (9-18, 2-7) won its first OVC series Sunday afternoon with a 3-2 win over Morehead State.
Morehead State got on the board in the bottom of the fifth behind an RBI single from Robby Spencer.
Behind a pair of doubles in the bottom of the seventh, the Eagles threatened getting one run across and cutting Belmont's lead to one. A Belmont double play ended the threat and sealed the victory for the Bruins.
Austin Coley (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) went 4.1 innings, allowing two hits and striking out four. The right-hander retired nine in a row before giving up a hit in the bottom of the fourth.
Scott Moses (Englewood, Tenn.) picked up his first save of the season.
Belmont will return home to Rose Park on Wednesday, April 1 to host Evansville. The first pitch is scheduled for 4:00pm.
