Elmer Flick had 3 base hits at Forbes Field '09 as the Decatur Deadheads beat the Ball State Cardinals 6 to 5.

Casey Patten(11-13) delivered a fine performance for Decatur. He went 8 innings surrendering 8 hits and 1 walk. Ball State made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.

Patten got relief help from Joe Beggs who gained credit for his 18th save. Sam Frock(14-12) suffered the loss. He was unable to control the Decatur offense and allowed 12 hits and 2 walks in 7 innings.

'We won because we did the little things right.' Vinnie said after the game. 'This is why we practice things over and over and over, so when we get in close games we don't make mistakes.'
