BSU’s Jameson shuts out Eastern Michigan

YPSILANTI, Mich. – Freshman pitcher Drey Jameson helped the Ball State baseball team salvage the final game of the series with Eastern Michigan Sunday with a dominating performance in the 5-0 victory.

Jameson went the complete distance, struck out 10 batters and held Eastern Michigan (10-18, 5-4 MAC) to five hits. At one point the righty retired 12 consecutive batters. He finished the game by striking out Jared Kauffman for the third time and stranding two runners on base. Jameson is the first Ball State pitcher to throw a complete game shutout since BJ Butler blanked Dayton in a 6-0 win on March 18, 2017.

Jameson has now gone 16 consecutive innings without allowing a run. In his previous start, he held Central Michigan scoreless in 6.0 innings of work while striking out eight.

Ball State (15-15, 4-5) got Jameson all the run support he would need in the fourth inning. Redshirt freshman Tim Blankenberger plated junior William Baker with a one-out RBI single.

Jameson pitched for Greenfield-Central last season and defeated New Castle twice, 1-0 during the regular season and 2-1 in the Class 4A Sectional 9 championship game.
