Baseball Salukis losing streak extends to six in loss to Redbirds

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE (WSIL)-- After dropping the series opener, the Baseball Salukis looked to bounce back in their weekend home series versus Illinois State, hoping to snap a five game losing streak in the process, but the Redbirds came out on top 7-6.

The Redbirds jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the top of fourth inning, but the Salukis responded in the bottom half of the inning taking a 4-3 lead into the fifth.

The Redbirds then capitalized off a three run homerun by Joe Aeilts to make it 7-4.

SIU would add a run in the eighth and ninth, but the effort would fall a run short, as they lose 7-6.

They look to avoid the sweep Sunday at 1p.m.
