MONTICELLO – The University of Arkansas-Monticello’s baseball team suffered a 14-8 loss to No. 30 Delta State on Wednesday in the first home game of the 2015 season.

UAM (3-2) gave up 14 runs off 16 hits, nine of those runs unearned due to four Weevil fielding errors. The Statesmen (1-3) used seven pitchers in the game and combined to total 14 UAM strikeouts.

UAM held onto that 1-0 lead through the first four innings, before the Statesmen reached the board in the top of the fifth with three runs off three hits, including a two-run homerun by Ben Pickard.

Delta’s offensive burst continued into the sixth, adding four more runs off four hits and another UAM error.

UAM brought it back to a two-run game in the bottom of the seventh with a leadoff homerun from junior Corey Wood and two-out RBI groundout by C.J. Womack later in the inning.

The Statesmen took a commanding lead in the top half of the eighth inning, crossing the plate seven times on five hits and two UAM errors.

The Weevils finalized the scoring in the bottom of the ninth with three runs off one hit and one DSU error.
