NORMAL, Ill. Anthony Ruffolo drove in Kevin Tokarski with a single to centerfield in the bottom of the ninth inning to help Illinois State walk-off with a 6-5, series-opening win against Southern Illinois at Duffy Bass Field Friday. The win is the Redbirds fourth-consecutive win in Missouri Valley Conference play.
Ruffolo went 2-for-5 at the plate and hit one of Illinois States season-high-tying four home runs in the game, but it was his base knock over Chris Murphys head with one out in the bottom of the ninth that provided the difference. It was Illinois States (16-15, 6-1 MVC) first walk-off hit of the season.
