ST. LOUIS, Mo.-- North Dakota held an early 2-0 lead but a four-run fourth inning propelled host Saint Louis to a 4-2 win Sunday afternoon at Lindenwood University.

"We gave a much better effort today both on the physical and mental side of things," UND head coach Jeff Dodson said. "We had opportunities to win but a letdown in the inning with a couple hit batters, two wild pitches and a single helping them put up more runs.

"I feel like our kids prepared themselves much better after a tough loss yesterday. If we do that over the course of the weekend we'll give ourselves good chances to win as we enter conference play."

North Dakota (0-8 overall) took the early lead on a Ryan Reese run-scoring single in the top of the fourth. Jacob Threlkeld and Taylor Petersen walked to open the inning before Reese's base knock up the middle. Petersen would also come around to score a batter later on a wild pitch for a 2-0 UND advantage.

The Billikens (8-6) responded in the bottom of that inning, putting up four runs on just two hits to vault in front, 4-2. Saint Louis made it hold up, stranding North Dakota runners in each of the next three innings and hanging on for the win in the finale of the series.

Jeff Campbell took the loss on the mound, throwing 6.2 innings with seven hits and four runs allowed on three strikeouts. Chris Knoll (one batter), Brock Johnson (1.0 inning) and Tyler Ruemmele (one batter) combined to finish the game without allowing a hit.

Campbell had a pair of hits at the plate with Reese, Dalton Parrott and Daniel Lockhert each contributing a hit.

UND will enter Western Athletic Conference play next weekend, heading to Orem, Utah for a three-game set with Utah Valley. First pitch Friday is 7:00 p.m. Central.
