TERRE HAUTE, In--The Missouri State Bears have built a winning streak at the perfect time.

Missouri State was looking for its second straight win in Terre Haute.

But Bradley would jump out to an early lead, it's 1-nothing in the fifth when Greg Partika singles to left, Spencer Gaa scores it's 2-nothing.

Missouri State would tie it up in the bottom half, first, Patrick Drake singles to left, Trey Massenberg slides across to make it 2-one.

Then the wild pitch gets past the catcher, Tate Matheny scores it's 2-2.

Stayed that way until the seventh, it's 3-2 Bears when Alex Jefferson singles to left,  Eric Cheray and Tate Matheny score it's 5-2.

Next batter is Dylan Becker and he doubles off the boards in right, two more runs score, the Bears win 7-2 and will play Dallas Baptist Friday afternoon.
