Eastern Baseball Breaks Losing StreakWednesday, 20 March 2013
The Eastern Illinois Panthers shattered their nine game losing streak against the Southern Illinois Salukis.
Early errors by the Salukis allowed the Panthers to capitalize and beat southern 11-7 Tuesday afternoon at Coaches Stadium.
The Panthers were able to score six unearned runs against five different SIU pitchers.
Although the Panthers led 11-3 in the ninth inning, EIU's pitchers struggled towards the end of the game forcing them to use three different pitchers.
