The Benedictine baseball team - a week removed from a big win over Illinois Wesleyan University - had the tables turned in a 7-2 loss in Bloomington, Ill., on Wednesday. The Eagles fell to 4-9 with the loss to the Titans. Sophomore Tommy Anselmo absorbed the loss in a six-inning appearance. Anselmo was charged with five earned runs and seven hits before exiting the game. Meanwhile, the Benedictine bats sputtered at IWU with freshman firstbaseman Nick Meitzler the only Eagles' player with multiple hits by going 2-for-4.
