The Illinois State baseball team was shut out for the first time this spring in the finale of a three-game series with Evansville Sunday at Duffy Bass Field. Evansville won by a 10-0 score in an eight-inning, run-ruled game, and won the series by taking two of three games.
Evansville (15-12, 5-4 MVC) scored in six of eight innings Sunday while left-handed freshman Brodie Harkness turned in a complete-game shutout in the win. Harkness scattered eight hits and walked just one batter in the victory.
Joe Kelch and Sean Beesley tallied two hits apiece for the Redbirds, accounting for half of the team's eight hits.
The Redbirds are back in action Tuesday at Duffy Bass Field as they welcome Northern Illinois for a nonconference game. First pitch is set for 3 p.m.
