(DeLand, Fla.)  Stetson fell behind early but came back to beat Belmont 4-2 and snap a season-long three-game losing streak Friday night.  Senior Chris Ingoglia improved to 20-4 lifetime at Melching Field and notched his 30th career win overall in lifting the Hatters (39-16, 21-5 A-Sun) past the Bruins (30-24, 15-11 A-Sun).   

Ingoglia (9-4) left with one out in the eighth to a standing ovation.  The southpaw struck out 10, the second highest single game total in his four-year Stetson career, while allowing six hits and two walks.  Those 10 K’s give Ingoglia a career total of269, the fourth-highest mark in Hatter history.  His 30 victories also rank fourth. 


Stetson took the lead in the sixth with a three-run inning.  The Hatters had scored a total of three runs in their previous three games.  Shane Jordan sparked the rally with a one-out walk and a stolen base.  Casey Frawley singled in Jordan and Justin Bass brought home Frawley with a booming double in the gap to tie the score.  Bass scored the lead run on Adam Tindle’s two-out single. 


Josh Clendenin led off the seventh with a double and later scored on a Frawley ground out to make it 4-2.


Belmont quickly went on top of the Hatters in the first inning.  Matt Reynolds’ ground-rule double started off the game and he eventually came in on a ground out.  The Bruins’ lead doubled in the fourth when Ben Petsch singled in Wiley Tucker.  Petsch was in scoring position with no outs but Ingoglia pitched out of trouble. 


After that, Ingoglia set down nine in a row before pitching around a leadoff walk in the seventh.  Robbie Elsemiller closed out the victory for Stetson to post his 12th save, which ties for the fourth-highest single season total in school history.  His one and two-thirds scoreless innings gave him his first save since April 13. 


Bruins starter Carlo Testa (3-7) took the loss after allowing three runs in 5 2/3 innings. 


Jordan continued to close in on Stetson’s hit record with two more base hits.  That gives him a career total of 328, which is 12 shy of matching the record set by Ned French in 1999.  Tindle also contributed a multi-hit game for the Hatters. 


The series and the regular season concludes Saturday afternoon with a 12:00 noon start at Melching Field.  Stetson’s seniors will be honored prior to the game.
