Hoosier Baseball Avoids Elimination


Junior leftfielder Chris Hervey went 5-for-5 at the dish on Thursday, scoring three times and driving in two, as Indiana got past Ohio State, 10-8, in 10 innings to stay alive in the Big Ten Tournament.

The sixth-seeded Hoosiers (29-29) now play at noon today against Illinois, a game to be televised on the Big Ten Network.

Andrew Means also scored three times and power hitters Josh Phegley and Jerrud Sabourin each had a pair of RBIs. But the big story was relief pitcher Matt Carr, a redshirt freshman, who entered in the third inning after a rough start by staff ace Matt Bashore and finished the game. Carr gave up two runs in 7 2/3 innings but neither was earned. He is now 3-1 with a 3.12 ERA in 10 appearances.

After tying the game in the eighth, the Buckeyes had the bases juiced in the ninth before Carr induced a CLUTCH double 4-6-3 double play that first baseman Brad Henke scooped out of the dirt. Indiana then took the lead on a Means RBI double and Hervey’s fifth hit which scored the speedy Hoosier centerfielder. Carr then got ahead of each batter with an 0-1 count in the bottom of the frame and completed the 1-2-3 inning with just six pitches.

Should they win this afternoon, the Hoosiers will play on the BTN right after against Penn State, which is 5-0 against them this season.
